    Wishing you the Luck O' the Irish scaroca.! I agree it is very tough! That is why I have been running so far behind on my doll quilt that is due in less than a week. I just couldn't seem to come up with the right plan. i will be anxiously awaiting your final decision.

    I did it. I picked a pattern and material. Even got it washed. Today I am actually going to try and find time to make it. I sure hope I can figure out how to post pictures.

    This is my center. It is composed of pieces from a miniature swap I did on this board not too long ago. I put some of them together to make this center and have done nothing since then. So this is a good opportunity to get if finished.
    It will be 15 1/2" after I trim off some of the outer border....I am looking forward to this RR!

    Oh how fun Difergie! Thanks so much for sharing. You come to me first, so now I will get my creativity cap on... I know others are busily working on theirs....I have not because I am trying to finish up a doll quilt for the swap....I had two partners this month and the 2nd quilt has caused me a little angst for some reason. But I am almost done and then on to this RR!
    Keep it coming ROCKIN Robins! Just think, our initials are:RRRR!...ROCKIN Robin's Round Robin, lol!

    Difergie- your center block is really pretty! Love the variety of colors and pictures in it. I'm still in the cutting phase of making mine. Have been pulled away from it by work. Hope to get more free time next weekend to work on it. I too, am looking forward to this RR.

    Good evening RRR's- I am making very slow progress on my center mostly due to lack of time and working too much Hoping to change that tomorrow and get some sewing time in. I ran out of one of my fabrics made a dash to the fabric store only to find the fabric I wanted was all sold out so I have been thinking about how to work around this tiny road block. Hope your all enjoying bringing your block to life!

    Hi zzmom, have you searched online for the fabric? Or have you posted on here that you were looking for certain fabric? It might be a solution for you. Can't wait to see your pictures!

    Thanks Melinda and Cognito for your tips and help. I got the problem resolved and am ready to start stitching today! I woke up quite early (not sure why?) and finished all the cutting. It feels good just making that little bit of progress. I will post a photo when I get the center done, not sure if that will be today. How are you two doing on your center blocks?

    Hi Ssnare, I think we are moving along in tandem with the other groups. Now that school is starting for most kids and summer is on the tail end, I bet we see a ramp up in all of the groups!

    Hi. Sorry I have been absent for awhile. Been busy. My finger is almost healed, so quilting is in my near future. I will start wearing a glove from now on. That was one painful experience. Looking forward to seeing some of the tops as they get started.
