I'm a member of QuiltingBoard.com and frequently participate in the swaps.
I've got quite a few getting ready to start and today I got my first package for the Boomerang Block Swap 8.0.
The basic premise is this:
Each member sends every other member a fat eighth (F8) of fabric.
A F8 measures approximately 11" x 18".
Using that F8 and their own added materials, each member makes a block of their own choosing and sends it back to the original sender.
You can request certain colors or styles of fabrics but you cannot request a certain style of block.
All blocks must be 12.5" when mailed back.
This is the fabric I got in the mail today:
And this is the block I'm mailing back tomorrow:
The pattern is called "Paths & Stiles."
I'm trying not to let the fabric sit around since I've got time to work on the
blocks now. A week from today (when school starts back up) my schedule is going to be considerably more crowded - so I'm doing what I can while I can.
