    Hey, you aren't the one that taught the quilting at Hickam, that lived up in Schofield, are you?

    I mailed my round robin center to Dawn Hendrix in Hampton, GA on April 29th. My name is Bett Love from Anza, California and I am excited about doing this.

    Do we send along coordinating fabrics or is it up to the other members to supply the fabric?

    You can send along coordinating fabric if you wish to have it used in the quilt. Otherwise, all fabric for the borders is provided by each participant when they do their part of the quilt.

    Have you got all the required participants yet?

    We used to make round robins in the quilt programs, but the real thing is much, much better.

    Here's a couple computer quilt program round robins I played with ... (because I just love my quilt program)

    I am going crazy with the applique. Do you think this would be fine without applique. Sorry the photo is so bad. Only had my phone handy.

    Were you trying to put applique in the middle? It looks lovely to me, but I don't know how much more you were going to add. I do applique a lot. Is theer anything I can help you with--long distance? I'd be glad to try if you like.

    Thanks Vicki, the pattern wanted me to cut out the little pieces of the flowers and satin stich around them with stabilizer. I am not good at that...lol that is where the problem is coming in. I am now looking into just using freezer paper and tucking them under and sewing them on by hand. But I think that will take me FOREVER....

    So I am trying to decide to go with a simple (so it doesn't take too long) applique pattern (freezer paper method) or just leave it the way it is.

    Whew hope you understood that.

    Have you considered the blanket stitch, or the invisible hem stitch on the machine? Is that maybe an option? Usually my satin stitching looks kind of wonky but maybe one of the other 2 sttiches would work for you. Good luck!

    Wow, quilting turtle, your center is preettyyy! I think it looks just fine the way it is. That being said, I also think it would add something to it to do some applique to enhance it. I think that if you want to do it, go for it and simplify what is suggested for the applique design. If you don't want to do the applique, the center is beautiful without it.

    I'm sure I didn't help you any........ :wink:

    I am thinking of it. I am just so afraid of ruining the center if I mess up. I think I am just going to try some simple flowers and see how it goes.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words :)

    I think the block is pretty the way it is!

    The block I am making is giving me such a fit!
    I'm NOT giving up on it, I've come this far with this pattern.
    I did realize last night when I was trying to finish it, that it was actually TOO large. I now have to "cut it back" to make it smaller. Don't know WHAT I was thinking!
    Hoping to get it in the mail by the weekend.

    It can be mailed early if need be. I'm going to try to get mine out early only because of the mail here.
    Once I recieve a center in the mail...ALL projects I have going will stop and I will only work on the Round Robin. Sometimes things come here quickly, other times it doesn't. Guess it depends on the earth and moon alignment. Dunno. ;)

    I had to go back and reread it too, and it says it could be sent before the 15th. I'm thinking that since I do have a bit more time, I might just rip out what I have and start over, but if I do, that means this center "has beaten me".
