    I should have everything "ironed" out by the end of next week. Can't promise tho, but I'm trying. Look for a new thread for signups by August 1. That will be when I will take everyone's name/email and such. Should also have all the rules/regs out with it

    Definitely interested, but will have to check on a couple of non quilting obligations to be sure the timing will work out.

    Sounds like lots of fun!

    I found a UFO that's been put away for 3 years and I had forgotten I had it. I'm going to use it for my center. I think it will make a pretty quilt.

    I have a quick question that I didn't find an answer to by reading the RR2 rules/regs. Is it okay to ship along extra fabric with your center? I don't want anyone to feel as if I'm pushing for certain fabric to be used, in fact...just the opposite. I can't wait to see what people do with my center. The reason I ask is this......the fabric I used to put together my center was actually purchased for me to put together a quilt. So I have a fair amount of coordinating fabric that goes with the center. Is this something that's proper round robin etiquette or is it rude?? Have other people sent along extra fabric with their centers before?? Just wondering. Thanks and whatever the answer is....it's okay with me. I can always stick the fabric away in my newly growing stash :)

    Feeling intimidated. I've seen Ninnie's and tried to keep up. I've very interested. Put me on the list and international would be fine.

    Lori, I think including the fabric would be fine. Just insert a note stating that it's there to be used IF they choose to, but not required. We're all to be helping each other - right?? And sometimes we just can't find that one perfect coordinate that we'd like to use. It's going to change the postage a little, but you're probably not sending 10 yds or more----------ARE you??!! :)

    Yes, it's ok to send coordinating fabric, but only if the person asks for it. I'm sure if you ask the person you are sending it to first, they might say yes. Or...you can just make sure that others who will be working on your center know that if they are in need of coordinating fabric, you'd be glad to send it along. Most will wait until the person who has the center asks for it. Then you would send what you have so they can use it.
    Clear as mud?

    Please, don't feel intimidated! As long as you are confident that you will do a good job and handle each center with care and do your VERY BEST, that's all that is required.

    I have been watching the picture threads of the other IRR and was so jealous that I missed the opportunity to join.

    So please add me to the list; I would love love to have an international quilt (in fact that is what I am most excited for)

    tlrnhi: I haven't seen you forever. You had twin grandchildren or something and you disappeared. I want to do it again.

    I'll be honest with yo u. The shipping does get a little much toward the end. My 4th round (1 round short of finished) cost $30 + to send from Utah to Ontario Canada. I figure the next will be about $40.00. But the friendship and love you will exchange is wonderful.

    I've been here, but with the moving and unpacking, I don't really have all that much time. I'll be back online regularly once the "black hole" aka sewing room and the rest of the house is done.

    Yes, I have the twin grandbabies. They are 7 months old today and growing like weeds. I miss them terribly and can't wait to get my paws on them and spoil them a bit more

    I would not mail extra fabric. If it is not used, it adds to the cost of mailing the quilt around. I would keep it until (if) someone asked for it. Maybe send swatches.
    As a Canadian mailer, I'm pretty conscious of high postal costs!

    That's what I was going to suggest - if you have coordinating fabric include a swatch of it - let them know how much you have and have them PM you or if local enough call you, if they want you to send it to them. This way it's available to them, but if it's not needed or desired for what they have in mind the extra postage is not being incurred.
