    WOW! I am so glad I joined this group. I've wanted to do a robin for a while now. The ones I had seen in the past were actually all the way around, I am gonna really like this. Been thinking some more on my mom's memory quilt, got some great ideas, now to put them to fabric!! Can't wait to get our group together. Who will it be? So many wonderful swappers out there, which ones will I get? I hope it is a fun, friendly, lively group; like all are. LOL I hope to see lots of pictures. Can't wait. "Are we there yet?"

    buslady great idea, I can't wait to get started.
    So how many of us are doing a bookcase them?
    My daughter is a published Author and I want to put her books in my bookcase as well as a few of my kids favorite books growing up, I really need an embriodery machine. any ideas on adding names and such on the spines of the books?

Is that too much?

    You could print them on the spines in a pretty handwriting or you could use fonts from the internet to print out the words and trace them on the spine. Also you could hand emboider them.

    I am soooooo excited. I have done Round Robins and just love the mystery involved! I am fairly new to quilting but am very ready to go. My Theme will be As you Like it. Do your thing.

    I have two ideas rolling in my head and both will work great. One is to make for my daughter who is in college and she likes safari colors. I have this huge pile of safari colored fabrics, earth tone browns, blacks, deep reds and such. The other idea is "What I love". Yep, what do you love, like sewing, quilting, knitting, crocheting, scrapbooking, and the like. Went thru my projects to be done so I can incorporate these ideas into this. I have some blocks that are projects to be done that need a home so will be able to put those in. The safari is a project to do and have all the colors together so can tweek it just a bit to get another one done. So I am ready, either one. Will put a lid on it after I think a bit.

    Got the blocks made for the first row of my "Patriotic Civil War" quilt. I'd like for them to have sashing with cornerstones, but I'll wait and see how that plays out before sewing anything together.

    Very good idea. I think I really need a new machine, I have an older Viking and it has such small fonts.

    moonrise,
    Your blocks are gorgeous!
    Just may have to rethink my second theme after seeing your blocks.
    I'm very excited to see which folks end up in my two groups. Then the real communications can start.

    best,

    Do the spines on fabric through your printer. You can use whatever fabric you want, though I would keep it light. Just iron the fabric onto a piece of freezer paper cut to the 8.5X11 size and use an ink jet printer.
    I wanted to put an embroidered name on a book cover I was making, but my machine don't like to sew on that type of fabric, it was black leather like stuff. I did the embroydery on a pc of black fabric, trimmed it just over 1/4 inch from the letters, turned that 1/4 inch over and used black thread to stitch it to the book. It looked great. So that might work, as well, only using your printer on the boughten fabric.
    Or, send it to me and I will do it for you. My embroydery machine is up and running.

    Yippee...I finally figured out my themes.

    #1. this will be a "what you thought you'd never use" theme - absolutely all those ugly or practice blocks (and do I have a few of those LOL) etc that one could not bear to part with but had no idea what to do with them. Sashing will be coming along for the ride...

    #2. this will be a home sweet home sampler quilt. I will do the "middle row" with the home sweet home theme and then each of the other four rows will represent a season: spring, summer, autumn & winter...in whatever order and whatever colors tickles the designers fancy. This will also have sashing catching a free ride......heehee

    I can't wait to start..........

    That sounds cool scrapper. Now does that mean I get to put in those old antique blocks I have around that are just there because they have no home? Or those blocks that did not need for a quilt? Is it going to matter if those blocks are all different in color and design and value? Just asking because that is sure an open ended theme and it would be so easy for me to fill that bill.

    If I get you in my group, #2 would be an easy one also for me especially if I got the fall theme, I have some wonderful fall fabrics that would be nice to use. Also, the spring theme is easy for me bcause I love flowers and have several floral fabrics that would work. Anxious to start and see the beginning rows of everyone. of course, themamahauser already has hers posted and the civil war blocks are posted. I joined the civil war swap so I am ready with fabrics if that one is in my group.

    You all have such amazing ideas! I don't care which group I am in because I have ideas for everyone's. Just have to decided upon my own. I have people "helping" me by making more suggestions. Gotta love family. LOL
