    Ok ladies and gents.
    I have gotten some messages from others that are wanting to maybe to another Round Robin.
    I don't mind hosting it, and don't have all the rules written up as of yet, but as soon as all the "kinks" get ironed out, they will be posted.
    I'm just putting feelers out on the board to see who would be interested in doing this.
    THIS WILL NOT START UNTIL AROUND SEPTEMBER TIMEFRAME.
    Depending on how many people there are, will depend on how many groups there will be.
    One thing I will stress...
    IF YOU ARE SERIOUS, THEN SIGN UP. IF YOU THINK YOU MIGHT DROP OUT 1/2 WAY THRU, THEN PLEASE DO NOT SIGN UP.
    This means...if you think you aren't doing a good job and you want to call it quits or you think that someone isn't doing a good job on your center, then please don't bother to participate. There is alot of help from board members to help you along if you need ideas for borders. This is meant to be a fun thing.
    Round Robins are to be fun, exciting and sometimes a learning experience for every skill level.

    Just remember, right now, I'm just looking at how many would be interested.
    Once it gets closer, I'll be asking for addys and all

    This sounds exciting! I'll have to wait and see how things are though.

    I am very seriously thinking about this. I've watched the others in absolute awe. I'll keep watch for the offical posting!

    A Round Robin is where you get 6-8 people together.
    Everyone makes a center square 12' to 24" either square or rectangle or whatever. Then the center is sent to the next person on the list. That person puts a border on it. Then it's sent on to the next person on the list. That person puts another border on it and so on and so forth. Each border is larger than the previous. After a year, you get YOUR center back to you and you have a quilt top finished. All you have to do is bat, back, bind and quilt it.
    Sound easy?

    Ok, Terri
    Mom and I are interested but will not decide until closer to date because of life as it is now. Is this ok?

    I have a question for previous IRR-ers... how expensive is it to ship internationally? I know this depends on where you're sending it to... but how big of a budget should I expect to have for this kind of project? I really want to do it but need to be realistic.

    I'm leaning towards yes but I'll know for sure closer to the sign up. Its dependent upon work and school.

    I would love to do one of these! I am living in Germany (military base)but I have an APO address which is just like mailing to a U.S. address. It might just take a couple more days to arrive due to the distance. Would anyone have a problem with this?
