    I do so agree with Patti. Remember life CAN and DOES get in the way sometimes and no one can predict so just take care and only do what you really know is perfect for you both money wise and time wise.

    They are a lot of fun but you need to be aware of postage costs and fabric costs because 9 time out of 10 nothing in your stash will work.

    Okay lecture over lol

    Oops. I didn't mean to start this off.
    I certainly won't be doing more than one again in a hurry. It was fun, but I have other ufos I've neglected over the last year, and it does get expensive to post 2. I've enjoyed doing 2, and will treasure both my quilts because of all the work gone into them by all the ladies around the world, but I won't repeat it in a hurry. Life is too unpredictable.

    This will be my first round robin, I tried to find the instructions but found conflicting instructions-one was very strict on size and theme for each boarder while the other had size but let the quilter decide the theme. Could you briefly write the instructions, I'm not sure which way to go about it. I'm a novice quilter, mainly sewn for myself. But I'm really glad to try anything, and the thought of my quilt going around the world sounds exciting!

    I think I'm going to do a solid trupunto center block and let everyone else add the color and style. Would that work?

    Didn't you end up on more than one project like that because you ended up replacing someone who had to drop out of their own group?

    That's the nice thing about an RR - you set the tone for your top. The rest of us have to figure out what to add to it. I believe that the rules are flexible enough to where you can state a certain expectation (like "add color to my rows" - or "please stick to these [...] colors" or "I like the rustic look" ....) without limiting the other participants.

    Patti certainly did. I did have to drop out for a while because my DH sadly died, but my Quilting Group here is Spain stepped in and helped me out. Patti is still plodding with I think 3 which is a lot. I didnīt realise this until a lot later as well.

    Didn't you end up on more than one project like that because you ended up replacing someone who had to drop out of their own group?

    I'm thinking that it's just going to be 1 person, 1 group. No one will be able to have more than 1 center going. It's hard when you have 2. Believe me, I know. And yes...life does get in the way, I know TOO well about that!
    I will have names set aside for those that are actually wanting to do 2 centers, but those people will be set aside to step in in case someone has to drop out. Then, one of the people who would like to do 2 centers can step into the spot of the one that has dropped out.
    Clear as mud?

    Thanks! I think that is what I will do then.

    Terri, that's an excellent plan. Our group has had a few bumps in the road and unfortunately had one participant who needed to drop out for circumstances beyond her control. The rest of us in the group are subbing for her as needed by adding an extra round to each top in her place. As coordinator of our group I am deeply grateful for the rest of those I'm sharing this IRR with, who have so generously stepped in with extra time and material to do a substitution round. It has been a lot of fun to work on these and I'm glad to have had the chance to do extra work as needed. Some I wish I could just keep for good! (Ooops, did I write this out loud?? Don't tell my group!! LOL.)

    Sew cornie....I am like you...there are some centers I cried about when I had to send them back out. Some are just so beautiful in person, pictures don't do them justice! There have been a few that I have said outloud...nope, sorry, gonna keep it. lmao

    I have been in both 1 & 2....I told myself I would sit this one out. But now that the time has come to think about signing up for another I might have changed my mind again...sounds like I have some time to think about it.

    Thanks for the $ info guys.

    Are you saying that there's an option to not do international? I'd love the variety but if there's a USA only group I can definately handle the expense.

    Terri...great idea about the "wanna do 2-fers"...

    I'm always amazed at how many different ideas there are for centers. It is soo much fun to work on things that are different from something that you would normally do...different styles, different colors...I know I've learned a ton on each RR. There is so much talent on this board, that its so much fun to see what everyone comes up with!

    I have just joined this group. Where can I find the specifics for the center block. Have done several rrs and love them.

    You guys' enthusiasm is so contagious!! Sign me up:)Just reading all the posts has got me smiling - & the idea of international is just way cool! Already the wheels are turning (hear that slow, rusty grind??) I'm not yet sure what my center is going to be---but the 'rusty grinding' just gave me an idea...
