    Hi Everyone,
    We have had someone who had to drop out of the Round Robin. We are looking for someone who can replace this person. Do you or do you know someone who would like to do this? It is just a group of five and the mailing is every other month. Please drop an email to TheMamaHauser and she will get you all signed up. You can drop me an email also and I can help answer any questions you might have.
    Thanks so much,
    Nexxus831

    Just a quick FYI, we found a replacement for the member who needed to drop out of the Blue Jays group.

    Hello Blue Jays,
    I am sorry to say that I have to drop out of our group, I did receive my first center already and I will be sending it to my wonderful replacement in the morning.

    I wish you all the best of luck, it sounds like great fun!

    Hey, Blue Jays! well, if you haven't heard, i am replacing paperpeiceme in this round robin! I understand that she is the Lead of this group and i do not mind doing this as well, but don't want to step on any toes! please let me know if you prefer to lead as you guys have already been getting to know each other! i am taking her place in the mailing order, so i hope it is not too disruptive. i should have my center ready to mail by the first, or shortly there after. i am making a blue and yellow center. gonna try to attach photo....oooh! this picture is more vivid than in person!!! need to add borders to get to right size...

    Hi, again, everyone! Checking in and updating. ckcowl, I received your block from paperpieceme. Really excited that I will get to work on this beautiful center. C Joyce, I am a bit under the weather this weekend, but sure I can still be ready to mail my center to you by Tuesday! How is everyone else? I went back to read all the post and find this to be a fairly quiet group. Please stay in touch and be sure to post when you send and receive a center. Our first mailing date IS Tuesday! I am excited. For anyo e not aware, I am also in the Cardinals group. Love having a chance to do two quilts!

    How much fun!! Round Robins were my favorite thing to do 10 years ago when I was part of an online community. I have some lovely tops as memories and cherish each one! I think I'll be as excited as you guys to watch these tops grow and develop. Can't wait to see more pictures! I just found this group, so I'm not signed up for any swaps yet, and will be living vicariously through you all

    Alikat110, glad you could join us! and happy to 'hear' my center arrived to you safely- I am anxious for the first one to arrive at my door- it has been a 'quiet' group- which kind of keeps me *stressed* but trying to stay positive & sure we will all stay involved & it will all work out in the end. I am excited to get started & already have a group of fabrics for yours when it finally gets to me- since I send to you I will be adding the final border to yours- oh what fun! I love blue & yellows together. I hope the person sending to me is ready!

    Hi Everyone...my center is out and on it's way to musicaljan. I can't wait to get the one I'm supposed to work on. I really love a round robin. I don't have a pic of my center because I don't do well with the camera and my husband is not available to help out. Actually, he forgot to take the picture for me before he left on a business trip, but he'll take pics as I do my turn with each center so you can all see the progress of your center. My center is a hand-stitched antique block that I found at a flea market a while back. I didn't want to do the expected cushion or just frame it. Then this came along and as I was considering what I'd do, the light bulb went off and I know that you all will do it justice and maybe with your knowledge of fabrics be able to help me date the piece. Can't wait to get started!

    here we are the middle of October= I've not heard ANYTHING from the person who is supposed to be mailing to me- have no idea if she is still part of the group- if I will be receiving a center===if anyone who sends anything to her will ever see it again. Round Robins can be great===but when there is not good communication and members who do not participate it can become a very stressful - not so fun project.

    Cjoyce - Alikat110 stepped in at the last moment for paperpieceme. I will send her a PM and check to make sure everything is still a go.

    I am contacting the other 2 members tonight and will do my best to get an answer to the situation ASAP.

    I'm not shy - just incredibly busy. I also had an accident which put my sewing time on hold. But my block is finished and ready. I also have received c joyce's block (pm'd). I will try to post pictures of both today- if my dinosaur of a laptop will cooperate. I love round robins! Excited to start.

    Hi Ladies, I heard from Alikat110 last night and, to summarize, she's been in the hospital for a few weeks. She was driving to the post office to mail her center and was in a wreck - and is STILL in the hospital. She's going home soon and is confident she'll be able to participate still without an issue. She has sent her husband to find the center which is presumably still in the car and mail it out today.

    I'm still working on MarsLaura and will update when I get some information for you.

    All the best Allikat110 - get well soon!
    musicaljan - I love your center asymetrical squares. I'm visiting family in northwestern Wisconsin and am looking forward to getting home and starting on the center that has hopefully arrived while I was away.
    Hope everyone is doing well and having fun with the round robin center that you are starting.

    Ok ladies! This is the last of the good news updates - I've been texting back and forth with Laura (marslaura) this morning. She had written down that Nov 1 was the first mail date which is why she hasn't mailed yet. She is going to put her center in the mail no later than Monday and will be on the site this evening to check in with you all

    alikat110 - got your center today. It's really very pretty and I'll be looking at it often over the next few days while I wait for it to speak. Hope you're doing okay after your accident.

    This is one quiet group!
    I've been looking at alikat110's center for a week now and of course, the idea of what to do hits on the only day of the week my LQS is closed.
    alikat110 - how did you make the center? Is it a yo-yo with "styling"?

    All the best and happy quilting to everyone.

    I think I have finally figured out what to do with c joyce's block. I have the fabrics now all I need is some time to sew it!

    well, it's November 5th---I am still waiting for a center to start working on...2 weeks ago I received an email asking to verify my address- which was correct- but have not heard anything since indicating whether or not a block will be coming my way. I hope by the time one shows up it will not put me behind in the progression- or be in the middle of the holiday rush- I am glad that for most this is moving along ok- I am finding it rather frustrating.
