    I have a question about the size of each round. From the guidelines I get the impression that there is not a set size for each round.
    Each quilter adds a whatever size they feel appropriate - as long as it is between 3 1/2" and 9 1/2"
    Is that right?

    if a person wants a smaller or larger size quilts we could put that in our "note/notebooks" of what we were envisioning. Like me I prefer the larger the quilt top the better but I know some ladies on the site prefer more lap size quilt tops. What do you think about doing that?

    well I do not mind doing paper piecing at all but tonight I ran into an issue. I scanned the "templates" and printed them off but come to find out I should of flipped the pieces. Does this happen with a lot of the templates you find in magazine and books. That could get very frustrating to a person.

    Hmmmm....trying to understand. I always sew the fabric to the back side of my pattern with the first piece facing away from the paper and subsequent pieces with rt sides together, and flip after stitching....I never have issues with this. Maybe pictures would help me understand what you are doing...just don't give up!. Once mastered, it is so fun and precise!

    I can promise you I will not give up. I can't take pictures as I threw the stuff in the trash. I was so mad at it. Thank goodness I was just using scrap fabric and testing the waters first. I do like the precision of the paper piecing though.

    I think the problem might have come from "scanning" the pattern and then printing it. Most patterns are to traced which keeps them the correct direction on your sewing template.

    Alikat - help me out here but I think that when you paper piece the printed side (traced line) of the paper is on top so the unprinted side is toward the fabric which is below the paper.

    Dragonfly, that is absolutely correct. This way, you see your stitch line.....

    Good. Sometimes a scanner can "flip" an image and we don't realize it - that would make the printed side of her paper the reverse of what she wanted.
    That would royally mess it up.

    Nexxus...I actually copy all of mine on my home copy machine. I have never had a pattern "flip". If concernen, determine how many you need, & take to a copy center. Just be sure to check each copy to ensure it is a good copy. If it where to "flip" all of them would and then you'd just have the entire thing in reverse....

    I agree with Alikat - very pretty Lestrong. I have some wonderful batiks that will go nicely with it when my turn comes.

    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

    Oh! Nexus, I really have finally mailed my center to you. I know this may be hard to believe after several teases. I have a tracking number and will check later to see where it is....how are the other centers coming along? Nexus, have you practiced more pp'ing?
