    March - Boom 18

    F8s due to me Saturday, January 14, 2017
    I ship to you Tuesday, January 17, 2017


    March’s blocks due to me Friday, March 17, 2017
    I mail March’s blocks Tuesday, March 21, 2017


    March’s Members:

    All2Pieces - 21
    Bootsy -12
    Jaba - 21
    jlt37869 - 21
    Joanelizbay - 21
    Libster -21

    Terriamn - 21

    Gallery: Boomerangswaps.weebly.com

    Next to the names above is the number of F8s you will be sending and the number of blocks you will be receiving. Please start prepping your fabrics if you haven’t yet started. Please wash, press, remove selvages, cut into F8s, bag, label with your name and any requests and then put them into a large ziplock-type envelope inside your mailing envelope with your name and address on it. Remember, you will be shipping with tracking. All fabrics must be in my hands on or before Saturday, January 14, 2016 and I will turn around and send them out on Tuesday, January 17, 2016. If all fabrics are in sooner, I'll mail sooner.

    Shipping: When you mail to me, please do so in whatever manner you wish as long as you do so with tracking. Please review shipping rules below and be sure to send me the tracking number as soon as you get it. Be sure to include $6.80 for return shipping. If the money/stamps are missing, I will hold your package until I receive it. No checks or Paypal please.

    Please have fun! It’s time to play with fabric you might not normally use, show your skills, make some new friends, say hello to old ones, and generally enjoy the experience. Let’s go!

    Rules/Guidelines:

    Please make sure to also refer to the basic policies that apply to all swaps through the board: RULES FOR SWAPS AND SIMILAR ACTIVITIES -Updated December 2010.

    Fabric, Completed Block and Package Preparation:
    1) Please prep your fabric before cutting into Fat Eighths. Pre-wash, press, and remove selvages before cutting into Fat Eighths, generally about 18”x11”. Mail them to me.
    2) When mailing your F8s to me for distribution, please make sure they are individually sealed in a Ziploc-type bag. Label each F8 with your board name along with any instructions or color requests. (DO NOT SPECIFY A RECIPIENT unless a fabric is being directed to a particular person. Doing so slows my sorting process immensely.) Labels are useful to help the recipient prevent fabric mix-ups, something that’s easy to do. When you send your completed blocks back to me, please seal and label your completed blocks with the owner’s name AND your name in a similar manner as you did the F8s. (Your name is important so that the owner knows who made what block.)
    3) Please mail your F8s to me so that they arrive by Saturday, January 14. The sooner you get them to me, the sooner they go out. Be sure to send me the tracking number as soon as you ship.
    4) Carefully handle all fabric received and completed blocks, placing them somewhere safe until mailing time comes.
    5) To help keep track of the fabrics and blocks made, I will establish an online Fabric Gallery.
    6) You are REQUIRED to keep in touch with your group by posting to the dedicated “March” 2 month group thread at least every 2 weeks. This is a requirement. If you don’t wish to keep in touch, this is not the swap for you.
    7) All blocks must be completed within the time frame for the group and mailed to me with a tracking number.
    8) All blocks should be 12 1/2” unfinished. They may be regularly pieced, paper-pieced, appliquéd, whatever the block maker decides to do. It is up to each individual. Again, the feeling is to get a true friendship quilt out of this. Please do not request specific blocks as the idea is to let everyone, of every skill level, join in and try new things and grow. Before mailing, be sure to clean up the blocks by trimming your threads and cutting dog ears.
    9) Most importantly, HAVE FUN!

    IMPORTANT SHIPPING DETAILS
    You must supply me with tracking numbers on all parcels sent to me and I will do likewise when I mail to you. All shipping costs are your responsibility. You may ship to me in whatever tracked package you like, however I will ONLY ship to you in USPS Padded Priority Envelopes at a cost is $6.80, unless other arrangements have been made. Please send me stamps, a pre-paid label or $6.80 in cash. I will supply the envelope.

    Keep in mind the following:
    You MUST be in good standing with previous swaps. Anyone with a poor track record of fulfilling swap commitments will not be permitted to join. If you do not fulfill your commitment, negative feedback will be given.
    All skill levels are welcome but you must be able to sew a basic, well-constructed block. It need not be fancy or detailed but it must not be falling apart. I respect new quilter’s need to learn and that will be taken into account.
    PLEASE pre-wash fabrics without any fragrance residue. Please note that that some swappers may be smokers or have pets. If either pets or smoking is a serious problem for you, you may find this isn’t the swap for you.
    NO public complaints or criticisms for any reason are permitted. ALL complaints must be addressed by Private Message (PM) or email to me at [email protected]. NO EXCEPTIONS!

    Here's my fabric. I'm waiting for another order of it to come in, it should be here soon. I'm asking for solid or tone-on-tone (TOT) fabrics only be used. Please no other prints.

    Hey Boomers! I'll be sending two fabrics in the zodiac line. I'm still prepping, cutting, and bagging them all. Each bag will have requests but basically I'm asking that you use the contrast colors and not the background as I will be using that color for sashing. These are to be medallion lap quilts with a compass rose in the center and your beautiful creations around the edges. My granddaughter is the Sagittarus and her father is a Capricorn.

    The archer could use some grey, orange, or tan to work with the blue-green.
    Here's Capricorn, and this old goat could do with some orange, red, or light tan himself.

    I'm going to use the olive green for the sashing. Anything matching, as long as it's a solid or tone-on-tone, will be fine with me. I would like matching cream for the background.

    Great fabrics, everyone. Janice, please don't give me the wavy... I was hospitalized with severe vertigo over Christmas and I don't want it to come back. SERIOUSLY. Love the fabric, I just can't look at it! I would love to do one of Terri's sports fabrics.

    Here is my choice for the Marchers... My 30yo son in law LOVES Star Wars, and the Storm Troopers, especially. Please help me make him a stellar quilt. (No pun intended!)

    Because the fabric is so light, I'm going to ask that the darker colors be used with it... the dark red, black or darker gray. Solids or tonals or grunge would be great!

    If that fabric will be a problem, perhaps it will be ok with Terriamn if I switch them out for the less vertigo inducing ones. Terriamn?

    yes Janice that is perfectly fine with me. Can see where that fabric could send someone over the top.

    This is my fabric for the 2 month group. I asked that you use the colors that are in the fabric and shades that blend with it. Name:  DSCF3307.JPG

    Wow, some of that fabric won't make it back to its home. It is so pretty, going to love working with it.
    Now that Star Wars gives me an idea, I have some for a daughter who is a Star Wars Fan as well. Hmm, that would be using what I have, just not finishing my project. Hmmm, well.

    OH my will gave to think on the Star Wars fabric.

    Jaba love your fabric same as mine last time but yours is in blue. Would be fun to mix some of your blue with my reds. Just might have to buy a yard and give that a try
