    Kelly, I love the flowers! I'm a sucker for just about anything floral.

    Here is my row! I am going to put it into the mail tomorrow or Friday. I'm not sending any sashing. I don't care if you ladies use this same star/flower pattern for your row... I think it would be cool, but I am not going to necessarily request it.

    I love your row Mama. Looks great. I decided to use fall colors and I also did just one block and am not using any sashing strips. I dont want my rows sewed together . I am going to sew small rows to go between everyones rows.. I hope this is ok. I will send a note so everyone knows what i would like. It is getting exciting now that its closer to the time for everyone to send there rows. I will attach a picture of my row also.
    Happy sewing all

    Can you include the name or a copy of the block pattern with your row? Do you want us all to do the same block? I have visions dancing in my head now!

    Hi again. I did include where i got this block. It was just a random pick. I picked 3 or 4 blocks and tried this one first and like it, so stayed with it. http://www.quilterscache.com/A/AnniesChoiceBlock.html I have added this to the note i put in the box.

    Oops I wanted to ask. How is everyone sending the rows. Is there a best way to mail them?

    I was planning on sending mine in a flat rate (soft) envelope from the USPS. My guess is that the medium envelope will be enough even after the 5th (final) row is on.

    A flat rate enevelope that will fit even with several rows? I don't think our post office carries those. We only have cardboard flat rate envelopes that barely fit one row. I need to do some investigating!

    This is the one I was thinking of:

    https://store.usps.com/store/browse/...S_PriorityMail

    Sorry that's so big. I ended up using a regular bubble envelope I had on hand.. but I would think this is big enough. I've gotten entire quilts sent to me in these packages before (twin size). But maybe the person mailing it was just a mail ninja.

    Upon looking a little further, you can ORDER them ON the site... FOR FREE!!! I might just have to do that to cover all the upcoming rows I'll be shipping on the next 4 rounds.

    I think I'm going to order the envelopes, too. If they won't work when the quilt gets too big, they will work at some point for something. Thanks for the tip!

    lol @ Kelly -- so you still have a name? So many of us moms seem to go by Such and Such's Mom. Some days I forget mine!

    Roda, I love your Diva saying. It's perfect!

    Hi there all. Pat I will get my row in the mail today. I am still with my mom, they are expecting mom to pass today, there Are a lot of family here so it would be nice to step out and go to the post office. Boy all of the photos of everyones rows look awesome. I haven't been home and in my sewing room for about 2 1/2 weeks. I am anxious to get home and dive into my quilts. I am also a little nervous about what I come up with for all of your rows but I really am looking forward to the challenge! Kelly, thank you for the sweet offer of pumpkin bread we really do make friends with this project and this quilting board don't we? However Kelly it is the holidays so you just take care of your family but the offer was so sweet! I truly appreciate the offer! Now I will try to take a picture of my row to post but I have never posted a picture before but I will give it a shot!

    Pat, I got your row today! It's going to sit and stare at me for a week or two until I finish up my boom blocks (I've only got 10 left). You're #1 on the list after that!

    The boomerang swap is where you send all your group members a F8. They make a block with it and send it back. You do the same. So the fabric goes out and comes back - that way you get however many blocks to make a quilt (or quilts) that are all different but have your fabric as the common thread (so to speak).

    Right now, I think we're on boomerang 8. April (LovingIzabella) runs the booms and she says we're going to start signups for the next one in January. It's a lot of fun and I've had a good time doing them! And I was in a group of 38 to start with 2 side swaps - so I'll have 40 total blocks and be able to make 2 or 3 baby quilts or one big quit from them.

    Sounds like a lot of fun. I am starting a Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt on the 23. Ive enjoyed looking at her quilts and pattrns and decided its time to try a mystery quilt. This is my year to step out of the box. My hubby thinks it should be the year I finish the box. LOL meaning my UFO box. I just hope I can keep up with her. She is a dynamo. I don't know anyone that sews / quilts as much as she does.. I will see how this R x R goes and the mystery and maybe next year I can do a boom swap. thanks for answering my questions.
    Happy sewing
    Pat

    I'm working on a practice block for Kelly's quilt right now. I've always avoided flying geese because I've heard horror stories. Oddly the first one I did came out OK. Maybe they are not as tough as I thought they would be. I think this swap will be a great thing for forcing me out of my comfort zone a little. How many reproduction quilts can one girl make before she needs to branch out?!
