    Soo sorry that you had a bad day Elle. I do believe that I saw a few puffs of blue air circulating overhead :lol: :lol: Just hug the baby to make up and go buy some more :wink: I haven't gotten farther than buying some more fabric for this. I won a HUGE lot of FQ's on ebay last week :lol: :lol: and I'm waiting for those to come this week to see if there will be stuff I want to use in my top before I really dive in. I can't wait to get it!!!

    No, I have a different name on ebay. We probably do bid against each other some on ebay. I don't see how we could help but do that....we all love deals, but of course, if I'm bidding I always want to win...cheaply.. and wish nobody else was bidding:twisted: :lol:

    I couldn't tell who I'm bidding against now because of how they list the bidders names. I don't think I was bidding against you on the fabric...where you bidding on lots of fabric, 3 baskets and a quilt kit all in 1 lot?

    Elle, yes, I'm really excited about doing this! I told Judy that I would be willing to fill a spot if she needed someone else to complete another group so more folks could have fun. I think I'll have a ball working on all of these tops! I already have decided what to make for both the centers, now I just have to get busy making them. I feel like I have plenty of time though.

    Hi Patti Good for you, that was nice of you. I think that is what is good about this RR there is a nice time lapse to get things done without having to rush.

    Are you doing the mystery Tote as well?? Think I have endedup making two. They will be great for Christmas presents.

    Ok I finished my block and will take picture and try uploading them tonight. Just wanted to make sure where to post this information.
    To we have a special place to post information for each group.
    I'm sorry if I missed a post regarding this. I've been busy helping with
    a small local quilt show this week.

    Notice I have posted a picture of my quilt in profile. This one is a little on the bright side. Not my only style. I goint to take more picture of quilts
    this week end have Sunday and Monday off work.

    I'm having so much fun reading and joining this message board I learn
    something everyday.

    Have a bless day.

    I to am watching this, to see how it works out. I'm glad to see a mix of people in terms of experience. I just hope there are lots of pictures and explainations. Maybe next time for me. It's scary thinking you might mess someones quilt up. Now on with the show :wink:

    I've never done this. Please don't go talking about us messing up other peoples' quilts!!! Just kidding ... I think. When I was trying to talk myself into doing this, I reasoned that my judgment, taste and ability was just as good as the next quilter's - maybe just different! I think it'll be a lot of fun.

    Don't worry about screwing up. I thought the same when I joined the other Round Robin. But, let me tell you. You AND your machine seem to be on their best behavior when it comes to sewing. lol
    Don't be scared!

    I'm really glad everyones so welcoming to beginners. I'm new to this too. Im a little intimidated about all the beautiful applique being done for the centres - I've not really tried applique much before. I figure everyones got to start somewhere though.

    I've finally decided on my centre block too. My centre will be pieced - and its going to be maple leaf blocks in autumnal colours. I bought the last of the fabric I need yesterday, and my BF is going to play golf today, so I can make a start. Looking to a nice quiet day with only the purr of the sewing machine...

    Sazu....if you go and check out the pictures from the other round robin, you'll see there is a diverse of centers there. Don't be intimidated. You'll do just fine and whatever you choose for your center,,,,it could be a bunch of blocks just sewn, know it will be back to you looking beautiful!

    Sazu, my block will also just be pieced, though I hope my (first ever!) paper piecing works out. I plan to start plenty early so that if it bombs, I'll have time to start over with something different that isn't paper pieced. I have all the pieces cut out and set aside, waiting for the time when I feel especially competent (huh?!) and ready to jump into it! No way I'd have the guts to applique, so don't worry a bit about that. Remember - it's YOUR quilt!

    Thanks for all the words of encouragement. It really helps.

    I've spent the evening with my colouring pencils and graph paper, and have 2 possible designs, both variations on the same thing. I think I prefer the more complex version of the 2. I've started cutting the fabric now, and really looking forward to watching it take form.

    And if it goes wrong then theres time to start over...
