    Love the Star you have chosen for your centre, however Terri correct me if I am wrong the centre blocks need to be 24 1/2" so that when the next border goes on it will be 24" finished.

    Sorry to poke my nose in Terri, but there are a lot of newbies on here

    I was under the impression our centres could be anything from 12.5"to 24.5", rectangle or square.
    I could be in trouble here, my centre is about 22"square.
    Yes, it's finished ready to send, and I finished the label.

    I also thought the centre could be any size up to 24.5" and although I have yet to square mine it will be 24" I expect once that is done.

    Sure hope I don't have to remove my frame to make it larger in order to be a finished 24.5"

    I am just going by the rules for the last IRRII. If you think about it whenthe next border goes on, say you have a block just 12" square, you are going to end up with a very small quilt.

    For safety sake go back and look at the rules.

    Sorry everyone I have just looked at the rules for this one and they are different so forget what I said and go with your 12" block.

    Hope I have not confused anyone.

    Thank you ladies. It's a really easy block. I love Amish style quilts with the vibrant colors set in dark tones.

    Thanks Lindyline. The Rules are at the beginning of this thread if anyone wants a quick check.

    Thank you Butterflyspain, I had promptly gone and re read the rules and still didn't see where it said "it had to be" then when I got up this morning all is well and sorted. Seems I wasn't missunderstanding after all, myself. Much better to pick these things up in the very beginning (even if we don't like it) then later down the track.
    Thanks again,

    Maybe1day :D

    Your welcome, good idea is to print out the dates for sending you quilts on and stick it on the wall somewhere, because I know from experience you just kinda forget when they should go out.

    Like your - sometimes life gets in the way quote :D

    I thought life always got in the way! least it does down here, particularly when I don't want it too. Just had to sit there last night and reverse sew my centre piece as when I went to square it up discovered it was 1/2" short. Darn thing!
    My new machine had a hissy fit last week when I was halfway through sewing it together so while that is in the shop I changed over to my old machine. No problem one would think but there was, the feet are different so in the end the seems were too.
    Darn it darn it darn it!

    Maybe1day :(

    I would like to join, but I'm between a learner & intermediate quilter. Question: When I make my center & send it off to someone else to add to it, how do I get my center back? Is it a whole quilt? I'm not sure about the part of getting my block back.
    If I understand this correctly, I make a 12" center block of my choice of pattern & colors.
    Then ship it to the next person.
    Question: How will I get my original block back?
    I don't mind putting a border on it, but I will have to mail it out to someone else, so how will I get my own block center back & I assume, completed quilt top ready to baste, bind, & quilt.
    What is the time limit from the time I get it to to have to mail it out?
    Sorry, but can someone explain this again to me?

    In the absence of anyone to tell you how this works, here goes.
    Normally there are 6 people in a group in an IRR. Each person makes a centre block and sends it to the next person to put a border on, it then gets sent on to the next and so forth. Meanwhile you are receiving blocks from the other people and eventually you get your own block back, Makes sense ?

    However you will have to wait to see if there are any more places left in this IRR, its not up to me.

    I'm having a senior month. I went to the rules and can't find them, again. When will we know what group we will be part of? When are the center's due?

    I'm serious about the senior months. Have had two deaths of immediate family member this year and I'm just now starting to function.

    Thanks everyone for your help. :thumbup:

    I am just answering in the absence of Terri, I have just been talking to her on Skype she is with her grandkids.

    If you havenīt had your Group details I think that you may have missed the sign up. There were a large number of ladies and we have 14 Groups in all. If you are not in one of those and have not been notified then Terri didnīt get your details by Private Message. Signup is closed now.

    Linda, there will probably be another one next year...or if you'd like, I think there were several people that would have liked to join but missed the deadline. All you need are 6 people and you can do one. You might want to post a thread asking if there are 5 others who would like to play with you. I bet you could do one easily.
