    Boom8 Ruby Blocks I have made - please check often

    This will be a slow thread most likely.

    I joined the small Boomerang 8 Ruby group so I have 15 blocks to make. They have to be a 12.5 x 12.5 block using a fat eighth mailed to me from 15 different people. In turn, I mailed them a fat eighth that they will make a block for me and mail it back.

    Blocks will be added to the thread as I continue to make them.

    Here's my first block I'm mailing back on Tuesday.

    Elisabrat mailed the pretty fruity fabric and wanted something girly, country, frilly. Hope this works.

    Travelinggramma sent the red fabric with little flower buds and requested something Americana. What could be more American than Betsy sewing up a flag?

    Both blocks look great. The first is very girly as requested and I think of Americana when I see the second one.

    Doghousemom was our 3rd lucky ruby today...she sent in the cream with branches & leaves on it.

    She wanted different size blocks than just 12.5 so she got 2 that are 9.5 each. She was suppose to get a 9.5 and a 3.5 but you know, when you end up with a 3 and then add to it and then get a 6 you have no choice but to keep going, lol. Soooooo that's how she got 2 of the 9.5 blocks.

    Here's the first one that was suppose to be 9.5
