    2 month turn around is fine. Those who want to play are Wonnie, MaryLane, Jane, Oldcatlady, and myself.

    Oldcatlady, have you done a round robin before? I have done 3 of them now. The other ladies have not done one. They are fun. And I have learned alot about making borders. Each round , I seem to learn something new. I try to figure out how the previous round was done. And we all ask lots of questions.

    I got a book on borders and sashings and used some of the borders from the book.

    MaryJane, I am working on your last block. I love the row I am making for you. It really looks nice. I just have to finish the applique and sew the blocks together. I think you will be very pleased with your top. All the rows are just beautiful. I will take a picture when I am finished. Then I will start working on setting up the round robin.

    Had to sell my truck. Lost my title, been looking for the last week, found it last night and it went bye bye today. So sad, loved the truck, but DH needs dental work so have to pay for it somehow and the truck was getting to where I could not afford to keep it up, a 1986 Nissan. My insurance bill will go down as well. thank the Lord.

    Ok, I am getting those instructions put together to pm you ssnare. The menu we followed was that we all started with the same size center, 12"block, then we added a 2" border, then turned on point with a log cabin variation 4" for next border, then had to do a 4" applique border, then another 2" border, then the finishe outer 6" border. That was what we all had to work with so would end up the same size or thereabout in the end. Hard to see that all this happened on each quilt because of the variation from the colors and creativity for each round. The fish quilt was finished like that because the owner wanted to add a bit more to it to make larger than the 60" square.

    How would that work out if you chose to have a rectangular quilt?...say 12"x 18"? For those who've done one are there any special tips?

    I do not think we are going to go by that menu. I would rather have more freedom as to what to do. So you can still have your rectangle tops. I think we are going to add 3 1/2" - 6 1/2" borders. I also think the center can be from 12 1/2" -24 1/2", square or rectangle. I will post rules soon. I am trying to finish Mary Jane's top first and I want to measure something I have first.

    It is what worked for us in our group to be sure fabric and such was all fair. We had a couple of beginners in our group and they did very well. There are so many fun ways to do them. You have fun ssnare, I am sure you will come up with a terrific plan.

    Had to think about that a moment QuilterMom but you are right. If you started out with an 18" or 24" square the last couple of people would be expending a lot for 3 1/2" - 6 1/2" borders toward the end. I do think the 2" border would probably be more appropriate for a 12" center.

    Gave it a lot of thought and, really, I'd be just fine starting with a square instead of a rectangle for the following reasons:

    1. My main purpose in joining is because I enjoy working with a group

    2. Wanted more experience working with borders and I enjoy creativity

    3. Don't have enough empty wall space for a really large quilt

    .............will do whatever pleases others.

    Jane, your blocks are finished! I'm putting a 30's quilt on my to-do list for sure.
    Do you want to see a picture?
    Are you ready for me to mail next week?
