    I better get this schedule in before I forget it. This is the mailing schedule for the rows.
    We will always mail to the next person in the group.

    You will always ship to the same person no matter whose row you finished.
    Order of rows to ship:

    1. Charlottemarie

    2. Tam...Moo

    3. Buslady

    4. MisMelly

    5. RaineydayQuilter

    Example for first row shipment:

    For December 1, 2012

    Charlottemarie will mail her row to Tam...Moo
    Tam...Moo will mail her row to Buslady
    Buslady will mail her row to MizMelly
    MizMelly will mail her row to RaineydayQuilter
    Raineyday Quilter will mail her row to Charlottemarie

    I will always ship to Tam Moo, she will always ship to Buslady, Buslady will always ship to MizMelly, MizMelly will always ship to RaineydayQuilter, and Raineyday Quilter will always ship to Charlottemarie.

    Hope I didn't confuse you guys too much!

    I am changing my mind now. I think I like the idea of just basting the rows together, now I would like to use a paw print fabric for sashing on mine!
    ANd I don't mind seeing photos in progress either, it just whets the appetite for what will eventually come.

    MizMelly,
    For your scrappy kitties are you envisioning traditional quilt blocks using kitty fabrics, or more of a pieced block of sitting/laying cats? Or just a truly scrappy anything that works goes? Because I have a pattern around here somewhere that encorporates different cat shapes in the blocks. Hmmmmm.

    I didn't want to limit the creativity of other quilters, so to be truely scrappy, I would say anything goes. I already have kitty blocks from a previous swap (many years ago on a different quilting website), and all the blocks were in kitty shapes. This time I am interested in seeing how different quilters interpret the theme of kitties - is it a traditional block with cat fabrics, or a block pieced into a cat shape? I'm easy! How I sash and border it will be the tie that pulls it all together in the end!
    I haven't done much with my blocks yet, thinking of block designs and still working on that memory quilt (groan). It's turning out to be way more more than what I charged for it. Live and learn, I'll be revising my price list after this one is done!

    This sounds like it is going to be a great group. I like the idea of posting pictures as we go, I for one cannot wait a year to see what is going on. LOL I would like to have a mailing "window" if it is up to me. Let me see if I can splain my self and make sense. We have 2 months for each row, TamMoo sends right out, but i am busy and cant get mine out til closer to deadline. The potential is that 2 projects sit at my house for 2cycles. I am perfectly within my mailing schedule, but the pressure is still there. Does that make sense? What i think i would like to see happen is that unless there werespecial circumstances, we not mail more than z2 or even 3 weeks before the deadline. Giving us a 2 or 3! Week window. Just my thoughts. Am sew very open to all opinions! All that really matters is that we all have fun.

    I believe we need the opinion of Tam...Moo. She will be along shortly and then I will compile the opinions into an
    email so we can go from there with everyones agreement.

    Hi Buslady and others!

    Sorry to be gone so long but I have had a little virus or something this week. All better now, I just didn't feel like talking. (Sometimes I chatter too much!) I am going to go with the compilation of what I think we want for our group.

    1. Do not mail out a finished row until 1 to 2 weeks early. This creates pressure on the other members who may not be finished on the row they are working on.

    2. Mail a letter with your row, the first one we work on and be detailed. Tell us what you want in your row and be specific as you can be because we can't read each other's minds.

    3. You may show pictures of what you have completed and we must also be tactful if we don't like what we see. Your letter should prevent that from happening so I think this is a mute issue.

    4. Ask lots of questions about the other person's row you are working on. You can't make a good block if you don't know what to make.

    Please let me know if this meets your feelings. If not we can revise this. I don't write in stone, so chime in girls.

    Round Robin Hugs,

    Charlottemarie

    Charlottemarie,
    That sounds good to me. I think the key is if you're not sure about the row you're working on to ask the owner questions so you can get it right. So far it seems like we have a very good group.

    Agreed with everything posted! Right now I'm looking at patterns for kitties. Think I have way more than 5 blocks worth of designs, so now I get to decide which ones I really want!!

    MizMelly, that's the way! I almost want to change mine to kitties too. That's okay, I can work on your row when I get it. And if you see a pattern you want someone to do, either shoot a book title to us or tell us where to find that pattern. I have gobs of kitty patterns, been collecting for years! I'm glad you think we are a good group Rainyday, we really are! Where's our buslady? and Tam...Moo?

    Alright! Looking forward to getting started. I must tell you I had to delete my bookmarks or subscriptions as they are called. I got a virus message and it was when I clicked on the link it sent me. I deleted them, but that computer crashed. I don't know why, so pm me if you need to reach me. I will also check the links everyday to our group.

    Hey there CharlotteMarie! I figure that everyone is going to have different kitty patterns and such. I'm not too concerned about different patterns, cause I'm going to mix it up for my 5 blocks too! I spent several frusterating hours looking for a knitting pattern that I know I purchased, which has disappeared into the black hole. In the course of that search, I found about 5 different books of kitty designs, and I haven't even cracked the bins of quilt patterns yet! I have a feeling that it's going to be damned hard to just settle on 5!
    And I'm about to breathe a big sigh of relief, the commission quilt I've been hung up on is now going to my machine quilter tonight, and when I get it back, it's just a quick binding and it's out of my hair. Which means I have time to start working on this swap and the other swap I've committed to!! Yeah!! Fun times a'comin!

    It's funny how we work. First, we see the opportunity for a swap and are elated, can't wait to join. Then you start planning and gathering and having fun with it. Then you start to panic, what made me think I could do this? Where did I think I was going to find the time, what if they don't like it? Then you finish it and you experience the anticipation of their reaction, at this time you feel so excited and nervous at the same time. Then your partner sees it, likes it, and this wave of relief comes over you. Then you go surfing for another project, if you haven't already!! LOL

    I'm just a "watcher" but just wanted to say I kept getting the virus message when I looked at your group's email notice. I'm watching all of the groups but it's always been #3 so maybe it will be clear now. I hope so I wanna watch.

    Yes, Qbee everyone is checked in on onboard. We have one person that said she would settle on her theme by next week and then we are getting started. We've set up some guidelines and are almost ready to go!
