    All you guys have such great ideas. I'm really looking forward to being able to work on some of these quilts!

    I'm still choosing between 2 ideas for mine.

    1) would be to do a row of houses and name the quilt something like "Our Town", and then people could add other rows of town related things, roads with cars, trees and parks, more houses, picket fences with flowers, harbour, sky, whatever.
    2) would be to do a bookcase with things on the 'shelves', books, teapot, plates, a fish tank, jars, miniature quilt on display, whatever.

    Hopefully both of these would be open to other peoples creativity to add something unique. I think theres both applique and pieced options for both, so people can use their own skills. Obviously the bookcase would need the sashing as the shelves. The other wouldn't need sashing. Really which one depends on whether the group wants to do sashing, or not.

    Wow. So many great ideas! I guess I better get on the ball and make up my mind.

    Wanda lou, what are some of your favorite things? This might help you decide on a theme. I have an idea for you. Pick your favorite colors and then do a sample block of all the new blocks I have taught you to make. Then your theme could be samples of all your favorite colors and blocks. The blocks can be the favorites of those in your group. Or, all in your favorite colors. You might be really surprised at what you get back. What do you think?

    Love the bookshelf idea. That seems like it would be fun to work on.

    I am with you Difergie, I am still trying to think of what I want to do. Good thing I have a few days to keep thinking because I have been so busy on other things that this has taken a back burner for now. thinking, thinking thinking......

    I found some material today to make sashings for mine. I will send sashing and I want to have them attached. I found some green and cranberry.

    I believe the sashing question is to be settled by individual groups after groups are assigned. Personally, I am willing to do whatever the quilt owner wants, but will defer to the decision of the group. One concern mentioned about including sashing strips is additional mailing costs.

    I'm still thinking on my theme. My "winter" idea still sounds good in my head, but when I go to draw out what I want, it seems to get off track. I actually was considering doing a bookcase theme, but I'm not sure yet. Will think on it some more.
    Have a wonderful day! If you need to contact me, please use the e-mail address on my profile page. Sometimes I don't get notifications that I have a PM here. Please note that I'm usually unavailable on weekends, but I'll get back to you on Monday.

    The sashing strips do not cost that much extra to send.

    Actually doesn't sending Priority Mail cost the same all the way around? At least when it gets to that point of weight after the first couple rounds. I was figuring on my budget including sending priority just so I have the confirmation of knowing it is getting where needs to go.

    OK, "LIVING ON THE LAKE" it is. That's my final answer. But then, maybe several people want to do the book case theme and the whole group do that? Or is that getting too involved? Just thinking out loud. Dangerous, I know. By whole group, I mean group of 5.

    I have read this every day for the past week trying to decide if I should join. Today is the day! I will PM! And I have decided on a theme. CATS!! Yeah, I love the little furry critters. I want mine to be truely scrappy so any colors and any fabrics (batiks, homespun, etc), and any piecing technique. That leaves a lot of room for creativity, so can't wait!! This is going to be fun!

    Oh sure, now I have to borrow back a book on kitty's I gave away. it is just perfect for yours. Hmmmm, must be old murphy thinking he can make my life interesting. Would be fun though.

    Glad you have a theme already, I haven't had time to go thru my UFOs to see what I can use for this to apply and if nothing there, have not decided yet what to do. I still have a little time to figure it out. This weekend when I go to the fair, maybe somethign will strike my fancy and I will do that for a theme. I know I do have a pile of African Safari theme fabric that might be fun to make daughter a quilt for college out of. I have been saving it from the lone star & beyond quilt I made her. still thinking.
