Boomerang 5 Block Swap

Here are some of the blocks that I made over the weekend. I am doing the Boomerang 5 on the quilting board that I am a member of. There are a bunch of wonderful women and men that quilt on this board.  You take 35 fat Eigths and mail them to 35 different people. They will in turn be mailing out their fabric. You create a block using their fabric and their color choices. You get to pick what pattern. This is such a neat concept. You end up with 35 blocks to create whatever you like. You keep some fabric and you add one to it so you can do a quilt of 6 blocks X 6 blocks. 

My quilt is going to be for our oldest son Lucas. He is 13 and all boy that is for sure. I was trying to think of what kind of quilt I could do for him so when this swap came up I just knew I should do this for him. So, I hope he likes what everyone will be creating for him.

I was wanting to get as many blocks done as I could while I had the weekend.  Saturday I was gone until late in the afternoon. I think I did pretty well over the weekend considering I was taking care of the family plus trying to sew.

This is my block for Janet (MOM). I hope it's not to bland. My husband seems to think it is. I just think it looks calming.  :)  I hope that Mom likes it.

This block was the block I did for JaneCat. She is making a quilt for her son. I hope it works for her.  :)

This block is for RoseySue. I loved the flowers in this one.  :)  I hope I did it some justice. 

This next couple I did for some others. I will have to double check who they are for because my info is at home. They were mailed out today. With people having different screen names as real names it throws me off. Doesn't take much. HA HA!! I believe this first one is for KReinhart. She does the QOV.

I believe this one is for Selfhunter....

I think this one is for MFQS

That's all for now folks. I will post more when I make them. I hope that the people that I am swapping with like what I made for them. I'm going to have to swap up patterns. I just hate to cut the fabric up into little bits though.  Have a terr....ific day!
