Add a border and that is big enough? Add too much between and it drags the floor, creeps off the bed, wanders down the hallway??? How are YOU going to make your blocks into a quilt?

    Remember my fabric is the rose, purple, green , gold, beige floral print. I found a complimentary fabric, same pattern only in rows. I bought that thinking it would be sashing. I also bought way too much of the original fabric, so I think I have enough of that for the backing.

    hugs, Jupiter
    Jupiter, did you mean for this post to be on the Boomerang 3.0 Swap?

    I know exactly what you mean. When I did the September block swap, I got it ready and sent it right away. Didn't get one back until August. Didn 't learn a thing so sent the October one right away, Didn't get mine until the very last day of October. Well, guess I learned the lesson, not sending my November block out for at least a week.

    Avoid confusion --- remember that the last day we are supposed to mail out the month's swap block is the last day of that month --- and life does happen and if someone can't make the date to mail out they should PM to the co-ordinator and their partner. I for one get really confused when almost before I get the message assigning a partner they post that the block is in the mail! LOL So, your Nov. partner has until the 30th to mail the swap block to you.

    Well said, WilliP. Thank you!
    Participants are assigned partners at the end of the month for the following month, and have one month to make and send their block. If a problem arises, please COMMUNICATE!

    It would be helpful to me, if each of you could please send me a PM when you have sent your block each month and when you have received a block each month so I can edit the Activity List as we go along through the month. {for assigned partner swaps only - not necessary to "extra" swaps}.
    THANK YOU!

    Lindyline, Jacquie, Quilting Carol, PaintmeJudy, and Jetnica -- if y'all are still up for extra swaps, consider me game. I have your themes, but need your addresses -- so please pm those. You may not get your block before the end of the month, but it's definitely in the works and will be there before Christmas. Thanks for replying to my plea.

    Oh yeah, y'all need my address, too. I'll pm that back to you.

    :oops: awww ... thank you for the compliment. I like making the log cabins, they can be so pretty.

    Don't understand how your block went astray. :thumbdown: Of all the swaps I have done, yours is the first that got lost. And usually it is only 2 days between your and my houses, so have been looking for it all week.

    A huge thank you to Lindyline in Austrailia. We did an extra swap this month and this is what she sent - three exquisite blocks -- one reminds me of my avatar, and pay attention, people -- notice the map of Austrailia? Thank you thank thank you, Linda, I love them all. You were too generous with your time. (Watch your mailbox next week.)

    Linda, I have never seen some of these batiks. Thank you again.

    YAY!

    Aunt Retta said she got her block too!! This means that I'm all caught up on my assigned blocks -- just gotta make my extra block for Nancy in Lousiana.

    I will try to be better at being a)on time with my blocks and b)patient with the USPS

    =) =) =)
