    "magic" :shock: :shock: :shock: GULP!!!! Now I'm really nervous...who said I could do magic???? Now I'm sure whatever you did was "just the right thing" and ....Hey, and wheres the pic so I can be thinking about it and worrying until I get it???
    I'll post a pic later today. It's not as fabulous as you think it is. It's just a straight border, but the fabric is what's awesome. Yes, I cut fabric that I was scared to cut! Fabric that I had no clue WHAT I was going to do with it because it was/is so pretty. But, with the print that is on it, it worked out great.

    I'm anxiously waiting to see the top. I already am fuzzy headed from trying to figure out what to do with Sazu's top...I will be again with this one...I bet your plain border is just right!

    Ok, here is Elle's center. I was going to embroider butterflies on the corners, but decided against it. I think it will take away from the fabric. But, then again, I might surprise everyone and do it anyway.
    I centered the bridge at the top and bottom.

    Elle.....I hope you like it!

    Thanks Izy!

    LOL That carpet is in the middle (2d floor) living room where the computer is. Did you REALLY think I was going to put it on the carpet in my sewing room? lol Actually, I've been really good. I have a small basket next to my machine that I've been putting the threads in and only a few get on the carpet. Hubby is VERY proud of me! :)

    It'll be in the mail on Monday!
    Just have to sign the label and stick it in the envelope.
    I'm sure you'll do justice to it. If you want a bit of the fabric I used, let me know, I can send you some, I think I have 1/2 yard left.

    Hmmm, thats a thought. I don't know if I would be using the fabric or not. Would you want to include it so that maybe someone along the line would use it? If they don't, I'm sure that Elle would send it back to you at the end if you wanted it back.

    I'm glad you like it even tho it's just a plane stripped border. Not exactly what I wanted to do, but since I "lost" the fabric that was intended for it, this is what I came up with. I'll glady send you some of the fabric if you'd like. I'm actually hoping that the store I got it at still has some when I get back to HI, so sending you what I have left of it is not a problem. I have a small package going out to you and Izy. Should have it out sometime this month.

    Ladies, this is your friendly reminder of your mailing deadline for Round 2..Jan 15, 2009...

    Now, for a little update....

    We have had one member of group 2 drop out. She is completing her 3 inch border and will be mailing it on time to the next person in the group.

    Welcome, Missi, as the new member of group 2. She has her center block done and will be mailing it to quilting turtle, who never got a block to work on.. She will have to "catch up" so that we can stay on track, but Im hoping that the 3 inch border will not be a daunting task for her to get done quickly..

    I have opened a new thread for Round 3 photos and discussion:

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/posts/list/15006.page

    You all are doing great work and these will be the most beautiful quilts...Keep up the good work.

    Your fearful leader...Judy

    I bought a pen to write on the labels as they come. But, I lost it. I didn't look under the mattress :) but I can't find it. Are there any other options?
