    Four Donation Quilts from the Boom and Block Swaps

    Several of my "Boom Buddies" has passed along block sets from Boom swaps gone by, for me to make up into charity quilts. These 4 are made from the blocks that Bibliostone gave me. I think the recipients will love them!

    Those are all wonderful. I love that you used such bright vibrant colors to set them in. It really makes the blocks pop, especially the iris quilt and the mans quilt. Also really like how you quilted the star block you posted a closeup of.

    What a wonderful use of the Boom blocks...they made great donation quilts and you are generous of your time to do so. I’m sure they will be greatly appreciated.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.
