    Hmmmm, I'm going to stop in the LQS for more scraps. I'll chat with the girls there about round robin quilts..do you think there might be a magazine that features them?

    Carriem, check out this type of top with the gals in your shop..

    QNS, I think your idea is good..this way every person participating will end up doing every segment of the top and will end up with a top!!!

    We still need suggestions from more of us..don't want to leave anyone out....

    I like the RR where you send a bit of your main fabric along so that it can be used throughout the quilt...tying it together. Depending on how many are interested, 5-6 rounds would probably be plenty.

    Here is a RR type quilt I made this year. There was a thread on the QB were a couple ladies posted ideas for each border every month...then we all actually just made our own quilts....then you didn't have the cost of shipping involved.http://www.quiltingboard.com/blocks-...g-t236801.html

    Carrie, that's so beautiful. I love all the colors you used. So pretty! I also like the ideas thrown out so far but laughing at OK not doing any thinking til the end of the week LOL.

    I really think I like the idea of making our own quilt but working on the same border designs. We'd need time lines and posting dates to keep us on track but wouldn't have the "pressure" of making something for someone else (I'm too insecure to do this especially with borders because mine always wave at me).

    I am with Jan that I think I would be more comfortable making my own quilt...plus that way when life happens and someone (me!) can't get to the sewing room, we aren't holding up anyone else's quilt. Maybe we can take turns each month choosing the border? There are some on the quilters cache website and I have a couple books I can recommend.

    Honchey--we have talked some about RRs at the shop where I work. I know the guild has done them a couple times and they make their own center, then at each monthly meeting they pass on the quilt as it's growing. Each group has different requirements (what size each border needs to be? border 1--4", border 2--6", etc, etc; send 1yd of fabric on; and so on). I think usually it is a month per border...but we could do 6 weeks or whatever we want.

    We'll wait to see who wants to participate..I think I would like to make a wall hanging for my NC Home...I don't have much on them...maybe working with mini sized pieces...Size should be left up to the individual as well...

    I went thru my quilting books and only found one that's all about borders: Carol Doak's Creative Combinations. It's all paper piecing; I used one of the patterns for the border for my SYE (which I didn't use after all, the blocks are in The Box). I'll keep looking, think I have some more books on borders.

    Anne, you and OK have me hooked on small projects. I just finished the 36 minis that QOTS has posted so far. LOL they don't take up a lot of room in The Box!

    Yikes I quit gittin' e-mail alerts & have missed a few days discussion! I want ta do the Round Robin or what ever ya'll come up with. Count me in! I'd rather it where we work on each other's quilts so that I will actually finish it. I'd finish for ya'll while I might not finish it for me. But if ya'll want us ta all do our own I'll go along w/that also.

    Hey, DD--hope all is well with you, been thinking about you.

    Bev, I'm not getting any notices either. I get the daily digest in my emails but no notices. I checked my settings and they're correct. I think I read a thread somewhere that the site was being upgraded and there were some bugs to work out. I just keep checking in here.

    JanRN, you may have to delete the thread and re-install the threads...I have too every so often. Some times its because I go look, before the email reaches me...but other times it just wears out, I guess.

    Honchey, if you have time, why not email everyone so they can say yea or nay to the possible project proposed?

    I went to DM yesterday; quilter65 was my driver. Very good driver who found a thru-the-citiy way to our favorite quilt shop and her candy store. So much for not stopping at any quilt store yesterday....then we hit Indianola and Chariton quilt shops, too Yes, some fabric called my name and came home with me...some at $3.50 a yard. I am doing so well with the right eye, I do not have to go back for three months. And I have a referral for the Surgeon to look at my left eye cataract to see if they can help it...in Chariton on the 22nd of October. Her husband and sons are harvesting 190 bushels of corn per acre this fall. The best they have ever had.

    Everyone, I hope, is having a good week...if not, may it get to be a better one.

    Yes, I will do that Nina..Why didn't I think of that..I just assumed that everyone that wanted to keep this thread going although they read it would comment once in awhile...I'm not complaining just a little annoyed...must be the lousy weather and all my aches & pains...

    Anne, are you getting all kinds of wind and rain from that Nor'easter? I hate to rub it in but our weather couldn't be more perfect: lows in the 40's, highs in the 70's and wall-to-wall sunshine. No rain all last week and none predicted for the next 7 days. Just perfect fall weather.

    Jan,It's just lousy outside, cooler than I expected, not as much rain either.. I wanted to go out today but some family business needed to be taken care of so that messed up my whole day...I'm just cutting triangles & squares in between everything else.. I have completed blocks so far of the wildlife flannel..I'm having a problem with the rotating mat I have been using .. there are grooves with fabric stuck in it and it's hard to remove...I'm wondering what I can use to get it out.. any suggestions anyone they feel like bumps and the fabric won't cut at the bumps...

    I use one of those nylon kitchen pot scrubbers on my cutting mat. Mine's a mess because of all the pressure & cutting from paper piecing. I read here on QB about soaking your mat in lukewarm water to re-hydrate it. I haven't tried that yet but that may be a way to get the fabric out of the grooves. I'm not familiar with the rotating mat--could you soak it?

    Yes, Jan, I can soak it...I will try a pot scrubber first then soak it...With all the cutting I do...the 17" one is the only one giving me trouble. The rotating mat turns like a lazy susan so you don't have to lift the fabric to cut another side of it...

    Sigh. I posted yesterday. Or I think I did. I know that I typed it out but I see that it's not here.
    Yes I want ta join the RRobin. I'd rather that it was where we all work on each other's quilts as I might git 'em done that way. If it were just for me I might not finish it but would meet a deadline for ya'll. If ya'll decide ta do one that we just work on our own then that's what I'll do 'cause I want ta do this w/ya'll.

    Another sigh. I have a new phone & am havin' a hard time gittin' my picts from it ta load here. It's an I-phone 5c & takes marvelous picts. It takes forever ta load 'em onta the lap top then resize 'em. I tried ta download 'em directly from my phone ta here. The Board looks totally different & I couldn't find any box w/a tree ta click on. I really couldn't find any o' the function buttons that are above the reply box. I was gonna show ya;ll the wallhangin that I made for DH. Well the top is made. I bought the fabric on Mon & am ready ta sandwich it. Very easy but it has a different look. I sure didn't expect him ta ask for such a big one. It is 3' X 3'. It'll hang on the wall by our bed.

    Bev, I have a new IPhone 5s and I can't get pics to download here either. I have to send them to the laptop and go from there. I've seen other posts where people can't do it and I've seen posts where they have. What's the secret? If you figure out how to do it please post here and let me know. You're so right about the clarity of the pics--they're better than the ones from MrJanRn's camera.

    I guess that we'll both be in the dark tagether. LOL I got my wallhangin sandwiched. I have the embroidery design I want ta use ta quilt it downloaded. It was different than the other files that I have bought & gave me a bit o' trouble. I will try a sample either th'sevenin' or tamarrow. If it works I'll start quiltin' it tamarrow. I'll still mostly quilt things myself but a few things that aren't important & I'll want ta do fast then I'll use my embroidery machine.

    This project is my experiment. I plan on placin' each o' these designs on each square. I sure hope it does work out. I'm thinkin' o' placin' the embroidery machine in the middle o' a table so as ta support the weight o' the wallhangin'. I'll let ya know how it comes out.
