    Margie..don't be sooo nervous! We were all new to the board at one time..so just get over that. Now..You can't ruin anyone's quilt because you will be adding the loving stitches of a new friend to each one!!! Just grab that fabric, thread and pins and have a ball! If you need an opinion, just let me know..I'll help you!

    Well, thats the chance we all take when we sign up for one of these! Just kidding...all the fun comes from adding up all the talents of each and every person who touches your quilt.

    Just think..each person spends the most valuable thing they have on each quilt....their time....so don't worry..everyone will like what you do..no matter what . I promise :D :lol:

    I agree...time is the one thing that is finite and no one ever knows how much they have!!

    mAYBE on each quilt I will make a "time" block....."Time is of the essence" "Time waits for no man" "time and time again" "time after time" "No time like the present" "Christmas Time" "Snowtime" "Time to shop" Time to stop it lol

    Okay ladies, I have to admit I'm worried about a sixth group member for our large quilt group. I had sort of planned on picking up the slack and running two quilts for myself if I needed to, but on Tuesday I was diagnosed with stage two osteomyelitis, and I don't know what the doctor will do about it. I went for an MRI last night, and to be honest I could be in the hospital for Christmas. :cry:

    In readiness for this I have already completed my row, and have the groups set up. If we don't have a last minute sign up, I'll have to run the large quilt group with only 5, that will make the row sizes a bit odd, instead of nice and neat like we'd planned. Any suggestions or joiners?

    Elizabeth....I am keeping you in my prayers....do NOT worry about a round robin....dont worry about anything...just pray and stay peaceful...try to enjoy Christmas. IF need be we could just send the quilts around one more time and everyone do another row... would that work?

    2 doods has joined the large quilt group! Thank you very much for all of your well wishes and help. Trust me just having that little worry off my plate helps so much.

    I have sent everyone a confirmation PM, look it over see if everything sounds okay. Let me know if I have any typos, ect. and if I still need something from you please let me know.

    Once your quilt size is settled you can go ahead and start.

    Our mailing deadlines are as follows:

    First Row Jan. 31, 2009

    Second Row Feb. 29, 2009

    Third Row March 31, 2009

    Fourth Row April 30, 2009

    Fifth Row May 31, 2009 Our Minis will be done here!

    Sixth Row Jun 30, 2009

    If you run into any trouble let me know, I'd like to assign groups Monday night the 22nd so you'll be all squared away no matter what the dr says on the 23rd. If I don't have confirmation or something is in limbo I will somehow convice DH to take care of all of you, so bear with him. ;)

    Well I'm in a small group and also in the international round robin. What I like about this is it moves along quicker. Sounds like fun.

    We're glad to have you Jan. :D The mini quilt groups are up to 5 members each! :)

    I'm waiting to hear back from mrsj82 (theme), and babeegirl (exact size?)everyone else is squared away.

    "Last call" for new members is right around the corner, and then I'll be sending out the group info.

    Nope there wont be a change, your quilt will be 48"X60" and that means if you want to make blocks it would be 4 - 12" blocks :), once all 5 members add their row you'll be exactly at 60" :)

    Thank you, me too!

    I mentioned that I had completed my row, so I'm going to post it here now and will create a photo post for all of our pictures after I assign the groups. Don't feel any pressure! Remember? I don't know what the doctor will be doing with me yet.

    My theme is Christmas Hope, so I did a little embrodery on it.
