    I'm still in!
    For those that are mailing International...
    Use the FLAT RATE Envelope.
    It's MUCH cheaper!

    Hi All,

    I'm assuming that we are sending on our center blocks and subsequent borders with the 1/4 in seam allowance included?? So, the center block would be sent to the next person as 24 1/2 x 24 1/2? Thanks!!

    already designing my center block! :!: :!: :!:

    Anything goes Mary,

    Just read and understand the rules and guidelines.
    Use whatever technique you are comfortable with.

    As it goes along, you will get the hang of it.

    Dont be afraid to ask for help

    This list grew very fast. I am happy you all joined.

    I feel that I need to close to new participants at 3 full groups.
    I will be sending you all the mailing lists in the next few days.

    OK now,
    everyone hold up your right hand and repeat after me.....

    I promise to do my best work for my group and to pass on the quilts on or before the due date.

    OK, lets go make our center blocks and have lots of fun.
    And dont forget to post pictures as the quilts progress. Ill start a new thread for the pics..

    Judy,
    I received my email and list.
    Thank you so much for making this very clear to us.
    I bought my fabric yesterday at one of the online shop hops.
    I can't wait to get it to see if it REALLY matches or just looks like that in the pictures.
    :lol:

    Judy, received my email list for which I must say thank you, and how very professionally you organised this.

    Everything is washed and ready to go, but must finish a couple of things, but that should only take me 1 days sewing, so my brain has been elsewhere planning the start of my square.

    Good luck everybod.

    Hi Judy

    Thank you for organizing this. I am thinking what colours/patterns to choose. So much choice.

    I got my list and I have been busily shopping for fabric. Have spent WAY too much, but some is to just add to a stash that I am building. :)
    Hoping to get home next week, as all flights are pretty much cancelled for Guam. :(

    Well, I'm the opposite of you, Terri and MJ. I have the center ideas, but haven't started to pull fabric yet. My question is this....how do I make a center pattern bigger?? I'm thinking I will play with some paper to see what size I need to be cutting. I'm certainly not smart enough to just figure it out and go because...of course the center looks better on point :oops: I'll think some more, then maybe let ya'll know what it says to cut...maybe you non math challenged folks can help :wink:

    Oh, thank you, thank you - for the upcoming discussion. For us "new guys on the block", it would be so helpful to get suggestions about how to decide on a center, what to consider, what to avoid. I know it's my quilt and I can do whatever I want, but would sure welcome any input from others as I consider where to start. Looking forward to the discussion.
