    I am interested but will be out of the country for the whole month of August. Will the first mailing date be later in September or early October to give me time to do a center when I get back? Have the dates been determined yet? I will have some computer access while away so will try to check in on the board as often as I can.

    Okay....this is what I have been working on this weekend and think it is the block I want to use. I had such a hard time making up my mind and may change it yet.:) Please, please give me some feedback and tell me what you think. The block measures approx 20" x 20".

    OMG it's gorgeous!! Beautiful colors.

    I thought the center blocks had to be 12" or 24" or 12" x 24". If not that would be great then I could do what I originally wanted to do. Someone please let me know.

    If the sizing rules for IRR III are the same as IRR II (the one currently in progress), your center can be minimum size 12"x12" and maximum size 24"x24". This means you can do any square or rectangle as long as it's within that size window.

    Lori and others trying to work out what size you should use...I'm sure that Terri will start out with a 3" border...like the others have been...so no matter what specific size your center is..it makes it much easier to work with if it is a size that works well with 3"...does that make sense?....so you see the 12"..15"...18"...etc. really work well. I'm betting that Terri won't make you start out square..that would be your choice.

    Terri...if you want to smack me and tell me to shut up...please do it in a pm...but I will now... :oops:

    well you know.....I'm so squeaky close to 21" that the multiple of 3 thingy works....I think. When it comes to math, it gets a little frightening. LOL

    Yowzers, four days and Lori already has a top made!!! Terry will have to start a picture thread before long.
    That top is great. Lots of inspiration for people adding to it. One of the best things about a RR is the opportunity to work with patterns you did not choose. This stretches the creative juices just a little more each time.

    Lori...I think your center will work into a gorgeous quilt...lots of opportunities for others to draw design elements from it! I was just mentioning the size thing so you would all keep it in the back of your mind...I'm sure yours will work out great!

    Absolutely interested. Project I haven't tried before, but sounds like a lot of fun and having a deadline will keep me busy with my hobby even more than usual. Bring it on!

    Thank you Pat......my block is kind of self designed and the size I ended up with just happened to be the size I ended up with.....clear as mud??? :) The joy of self design........I can always make it another size with very little effort. So, If multiples of 3 works out easiest for everyone, I'll make sure it's a multiple of 3. No problem......gives me a good reason to play in the "quilting studio" again today. Yipee!

    Since i am new to piece quilting, may I ask why multipulies of three? I am kind of dumb about somethings that everyone is talking about on this sight. Don't get me wrong, I love this sight, I am learning so much and I really enjoy everyones quilts. They are so beautiful. I am use to just doing squares and making comforters.

    Terri,

    I have decided not to join #3, but please put me on the list of people that could help out if someone had to drop out of a group.

    Baba...in the Round Robins we have generally started with a "center"...then it is followed by "rounds" (borders) that are put on by someone other than the owner of the center. There are size requirements on each round. In the past, the 1st round has been 3"...thus the talking about the multiples of 3...does that make sense to you?

    Yes, I understand better now. The center should be a multipule of three and so are the borders. If my center is 24 X 27 that will be a multiple of three, is that right? I'm sure when the instructions come out it will say what size evrything should be.

    I am saving my bday and Christmas money so I can join next years. Between shipping and buying fabric for the rounds will be too tight right now. But really really want to do one.
