    Mine measures about 18 1/2 x 19.

    It's not really a true pattern Bettlove.
    I started with a pattern, but it got all screwed up, so I pretty much tore it apart and made my own.
    You are welcome to copy it.
    The squares are about 4" each.
    It started out to be the middle of a Mystery Quilt that was finished. By the time I got to the paper piecing part of it...no paper piecing in my square....I noticed the measurements were wrong.
    It gave the dimensions to cut the squares, but on the template, it said that the fabric square measurements DID NOT allow for 1/4 inch seam.
    What a dumb place to put that note, huh? So, needless to say, I have a bunch of pieces I will be doing something with later on, maybe.
    I had found the pattern online. Don't know where I found it, since there were so many centers I was looking at, I don't even know where to start....sorry.

    Ok, I was looking thru My Favorites and didn't find it. Evidently, I didn't save it. I looked at the paper/directions and there isn't a website printed on the bottom.

    Looking forward to starting your first round. I got my center started and got some more material today to finish it. I will be driving up to Oregon be with my mother for 5 days and will bring it with me because I like to do hand work when I am sitting with her. She is 92 and likes to just sit and visit so I should get lots done after I get all her errands run. I hope to get it in the mail next weekend to Dawn Hendrix. I think this is going to be fun and challenging.

    I think it's a good idea to post the centers. That way, it give the people a chance to at least LOOK at fabric that could go with the centers. Know what I mean?

    Mine is a vewrsion of Rose of Sharon with stars for flowers instead of scalloped pieces. I am ready to assemble but the stems are giving me fits. They are narrow and have to be doubled (bias) and won't curve like they should. I will try again tomorrow. I was too tired last night, but will start fresh in the a.m.

    Bettlove - I can give you the pattern for Tlrnhi's center.

    Mamakane - you need to send a personal mail to imaquilter. She is our "leader".

    Imaquilter - got your message and no problem about sending my blocks to macbroo.

    I love all the centers posted so far and look forward to seeing the rest. Happy Sewing!! :mrgreen:

    Does this mean I'm going to put the first border on your center piece, Mareliba?

    And does that mean that I'm sending my center piece to you? I'm sorry, I've joined late and I haven't made it yet. But, I plan to do it this weekend.

    I am sending my center to macbroo. You are not on my list so I assume you are on the other one. Get your list from our esteemed leader - imaquilter, and it will have the order of whom you send your pieces to. Every time you add a border, you will send your finished piece to the person whose name appears after yours on the list. The person who is above yours will be sending her finished pieces to you. Each center makes the loop and each person will put a border on each persons piece so each finished quilt will have been made by 6 different people.

    Let me know if this is not clear.

    I'm sorry to be a pain, but my computer wouldn't open the .wps file.

    I've been looking over your block awhile now and have so many ideas, I can hardly pick one ...

    Can you send me back the link for the pattern? I really like the quilt and think I MIGHT try it, but will adjust the cutting to ADD the 1/4 inch in the directions. I had tossed the directions out when I started have all the problems with it

    mareliba - did you say you have the pattern for Tlrnhi's center or do you know where to get it?

    I still haven't been able to find the solution for the problem with this website.

    Hello everyone! I was out of town for the weekend. I was going over all of the posts and saw some things that people had questions about.

    Cordelia - make sure that you have the list that I emailed with everyone's addy, etc. You will mail your center to the person BELOW your name. You will always mail to the person below you as well, any other quilts.

    MAMAKANE - unfortunately, our Round Robin is full. I am considering putting another one together later in the year. Just keep an eye out on the board for it. Anyone can put one together though so, if someone else wants to, that is fine. I am not positive that I will do another one just because of time constraints I have in the fall.

    The centers look great!!! Just 10 more days and all of your centers have to be in the mail!!!

    Mine will go in the mail on Thursday. Have to return the rental car that day, so will drop that off, the run over to post office. I also have a package I need to get out to Henry before the end of school.

    Ladies, I am loving watching your Round Robin. I wanted to join, but with my DH up in the air this summer, I was afraid I wouldn't be able to get stuff done and back out in time...so I sure am excited about seeing all your quilts in the making! I love the centers so far....keep 'em coming girls!

    I will be watching for another round robin later this year...I've never done it, but it sure looks like fun :D

    I am sending my center out today to macbroo in Maryland. I am including a block and pen for all of you to sign your name to. Thank you for all the future work you will be putting into my quilt!

    bettlove - I can draw that pattern up for you. What size do you want your finished block to be? I would recommend no smaller than 10" and can be as big as you want.

    I ordered a pen from Joanns, but the order isn't in as of yet. It's been 3 weeks. I think it's taking that long because it's such a big box that I have coming this time.
    No worries on envelopes. Those usually take about 10 days to get to me.
    For those of you who are on the same list as I am....if you could post a pic of your middle, it will give me time to get to the local store to see what they have for fabric, OR get something ordered. Especially those of you who are WAAY down on the list. But, then again...I just might have something in my stash.

    I'm getting excited!! :) :)

    I will be sending mine out later in the week as well. Mine is actually a small panel that would be perfect to just put borders on. It's like 28 inches or so.
