    Wonderful!!! I do 6" blocks for donation quilts. I'm wondering where you find the patterns for your blocks? I googled Boom Swap blocks but didn't find anything. Could you point the way, please?
    Love the fabrics you use!

    Hi Kitsie, The "Boom"s are swaps on this board. They take place about twice a year. We swap our main fabric and make 12.5" blocks for each other by adding fabric from our stashes. Here are links to the two current Boom swaps, which are just finishing up now. A new Boom (Boom 23) will start up shortly. You can read about the swap in these threads and join Boom 23 if you wish to participate. It's a lot of fun.

    As far as the block patterns go, we use any patterns we like that make a 12.5" block. There are plenty of block patterns free online, or books such as the "Around the Block" series. You can google 12" quilt block patterns (12.5" unfinished).
