Hi everyone. I tried to resist, but I can't resist.... I'm in for the 3 month group! It will be a fun summer playing with patterns I want to try out!

Hmmmm. Kristijoy, I can't decide if I want a focus fabric or a neutral either.... I better figure out what I ultimately want a quilt for first. Marcialee, good to meet you too! Our hostess, Janice, has a link in her signature that takes you to the BOOM showcase of previous blocks made for the BOOMERS. I am so impressed with everyone's talents. Janice is a wonderful hostess. I hope she will have time to make blocks with us this time. Juana

ibex94 - I found the link to the blocks made for the past swaps. They are amazing! It was so much fun to see the variety of blocks for each swapper and how they all go together!

I'm thinking of using a fabric with a darker neutral background that has pops of color.

kristijoy, that sounds like a fabric with lots of possibilities. You will have to tell us if you want us to use a particular color or not. For instance, maybe you want a Valentine's theme quilt at the end so you ask us to use pinks, reds and whites with whatever your fabric is. Travelingramma had a great color wheel themed quilt one boom where everyone was asked to do a block in various shades of the accent fabric that she sent out. Or maybe you know you want to use sashing of a particular color so ask us to avoid that color in our blocks. The challenge is in making that oh so perfect block for our quilting buddies in here so the more you tell us what you want, the more we can play. It's great fun and a wonderful way to practice new blocks or techniques. I always hope I have the fabrics in my stash to go with the choices but I end up shopping around for something that sings to me better.

Don't hesitate to ask questions. We love to chat when we have time to get onto the board.

Have a great trip! We have a short RV trip scheduled in June, but then 3 months on the road in the fall! https://cdn.quiltingboard.com/images...es/thumbup.png We'll be roadschooling our 14 year old son on a journey in the Southwest. 1 1/2 years ago (before covid) we did a 3+ month roadschooling adventure to the Northeast. Best.Time.Ever.

How much yardage would you recommend? I have 2 yards of the fabric I was hoping to use. Does that sound like it will work? I'm thinking 8 pieces for each yard which would be 16 at the most. Guess it depends on the size of my group!
