    The quilt blocks are 12 1/2" and can be whatever pattern we choose. I usually try to 'mix it up' a little and make a variety of different quilt blocks. When I finish each quilt block, I mail it back to the sender. Then, she will have lots (16 in my current Boom) of blocks made from the same focus fabric. Sometimes, senders will send a few different fabrics. In the end, I will have 16 blocks made from the F8 fabric I sent to the other participants.

    It's really fun. The current Boom just started in July and will finish November 1st. Keep an eye out on the QB for sign-up for the next Boom.

    Yes, there is the expense of postage. In my first Boom, I was mailling not only to several people in the US, but also in Canada, the UK and Australia!! My current Boom is all US participants. Whew!

    Update on your row: as I was putting the blocks together, I realized there was a 'North/South' component to your quilt and my blocks were not going the right direction!!! AAAAaaahhhhh - - - so, I had to do some 'frog' stitching and will have to do some re-arranging to make it flow the right direction. It all started with Barbaras' Mississippi River. Well, you understand. . . will be in the mail on Wednesday.

    No apologies needed, Yvonne. It's all part of the process, right? Who among us is not familiar with our friend, the seam ripper?? lol

    I think I decided

    I am finally happy with my tea cup and tea pot (well almost! - now that I look at the pic I need to fix the handle of the pot) and this just may be my center. This is my final free long weekend until mid Sept. as I will either be working or traveling and visiting relatives on the east coast. I really wanted to get this project ready to go out the door when we get back! What do you'all think - do you want to work with my peaceful time quilt block?

    It's beautiful. Funny thing - - I was thinking of the same kind of idea but in shabby chic colors. So should I think of something else or go with my idea?

    To my way of thinking it doesn't make any difference if two centers are alike....they'll be in different colors and end up in two different homes. Go for it! Who knows.......maybe I'll do a tea set, too!!!

    Oh Jane - Tea for all of us - that sounds good!! How different they will be! Maybe I can add a few teacups to yours!!
    I think mine will be starting at 12 x 18. I am thinking that this will be for me when I want to curl up with a book and my cup of tea!

    I'm kinda late signing in. My name is Anne, I live in a small town in SC and love it here. I own my own business and have three children and one grandaughter. I am the SC Coordinator for Quilts of Valor so that keeps me busy as well. This is my first Round robin so I'm excited to get started.

    Welcome Anne. Luv to have you here with us. Communication is a big part of the success of a round robin. We will be looking forward to see pictures of everyone's centers. I am not rushing anyone, but I am in the process of moving, so my center is done and ready to send.

    Why are we starting to send our centers so early? This is just the middle of August...................or is it just because you're moving Sherry and want to get one less thing out of your hair....could certainly understand that!!!!

    Must admit for a moment there I was a little panicked wondering how I would accomplish that...whew!....but, would do exactly the same thing if the opportunity was available to me. Knowing me I'd probably pack it up accidentally in the "throw away" box!!!!!!

    I am already starting to get withdrawal. I am taking my sewing machine into get cleaned,etc while we are away. All I did was take it off the table and prepare to bring it tomorrow. Figured I would use the time to clean up the sewing areas. But I wanted to sew something - anything!! I will be away until 9/8 so won't be online very often. Visiting my mom, daughter, grands, extended family - good times!

    -----------

    Sherry -

    Go ahead and send your center. I'm crazy busy getting ready for my guilds' quilt show coming up in September. I'm chair of our quilt challenge. AAAAAhhhhhh !!!!! I can't even think about getting my RR center put together until after the quilt show. So send, Sherry. I will have mine ready by the due date.

    My Crazy quilt swap only has 3 people signed up so far. Kind of disappointed in the response - - -

    Hope everyone is well.

    I'm sorry, Jane...just couldn't add one more thing to my plate and do any of it justice but the Crazy Quilt swap does sound like fun. Good luck!
