Here is Givio's top with the round I added. Now it will sit and wait until closer to July 15th, to be mailed.

I put coneflowers in each corner of the center (red echinacea, a healing plant). And to me the 9 patches look like little red poppies.

Sewbizgirl, that looks lovely. I have been so curious to see how round 2 is going to look.

Group 2, I've went back to find everyone's centers. Trying to plan and not forget what they look like or who's is who's. So here they are all in one place.

Here I am with more confessions and a picture!

So... yesterday morning when I thought I was going to the post office I spent about 2.5 hours (from 9-11:30), trying to set up a lab appointment and get a simple question answered. It used to be, your doctor sent in the order, then you went to the lab and waited. As of last week you called to set your appointment. Now, we have to go online to make appointments (and as someone who never liked waiting in hospitals, I think appointments are actually wonderful). It actually went pretty well today, was seen within 15 minutes of the appointment time, the check-in procedures and stuff were fairly easy, but there is no live person at the front desk. But yesterday, oh, after that much time on hold and getting to full mail boxes and stuff I wasn't ready to deal with people. No biggy. Hubby home in a couple hours, we can go do it together. Except we got to the post office and it was closed early, don't know if it is Covid hours or what, but I should have had another 2 hours of lobby time.

That's part of the frustrations around here, we were our masks and do what we are asked but everything just changes daily and I don't deal with it well. So, had to go back today and even later but now I have a tracking number to prove it!

Confession 2: I am in the "I see all the flaws and am not happy with my project" stage, which may have added to my recent funk. Is it good enough, am I good enough? Should I do it over? Well, I slapped it in a box and I'm sure by the time it comes back to me it will be lovely!

So here's my center, it is what it is. Like most of my things, it has a story. When I first came to this forum, I found this thread:
I don't get what the 'reciept' is for when making string quilts
And then before I joined the Fabric Moratorium I bought 50 pounds of fabric from an estate sale of "smaller pieces" (under 3 yards). I never got to meet Mary in real life, but I've spent some pretty significant time with her stash by now. My block of "ribbons" is made from a big bag full of what I thought were little fan blades, but later I found a number of "basket" blocks, maybe cake stand or candy dish -- haven't looked it up but no handle. The little blades turned out to have Mary's hand drawn tiny little triangles to make those baskets on the back of them. And I've been sticking them together as in that thread I listed. I'm hoping when my top comes back to me, to finish it with the basket blocks I have. I think I'll have enough for a top/bottom border to end it as a rectangle.

Iceblossom., yes I think that is going to be the start to a great quilt. But... is it mailed yet??? You agreed to mail on the 22nd, which was actually a few days extra time. There will be no excuses from now going forward, for mailing late. (To all of us): If you aren't finished on time, you will have to just send it along as it is. When you mail late you are robbing the next person of some of their work time, and that is not fair. So, no excuses please, anyone. Just mail on time, done or not.

No excuses, no apologies. I'm sure Travelinggranma feels the same way for group 2. And who knows if we will have a group 3?

My top is done early... Our next mailing will be July 15.

Enjoy the making!

Iceblossom, I like your center. I it is soft and calming. Kind of what the times call for.

I am really admiring all the centers by both groups. Not sure I am ready to join in yet, but am following along to see if I think I could make the cut. Adding the next row is where I usually stall on my self started projects. And that's why I have way too many UFO's.

:-) Thank you, Bonnie. The colors look so rich on my monitor, can't wait to see what you've done in person! Those nine patches are such little pieces, so sweet. I will remember your idea about the cone flowers. I never expected something to be added in those corners! I would have never guessed you thought of doing that in a million years!
