    A person is not signing the center block, we are just labeling it? Just want to be sure if I can find time.

    In the center strip please include - your real name, board name, year and State or Country

    I want in on this too. It looks so nice and I love the pattern. this is my first time doing this and I too was confused on how many to make but the way I understand it is that we make 64 4 1/2 inch squares.

    Ok added Nurse Bonnie and urgodschild2

    urgodschild2- correct you are making 64 of the 4 1/2 inch blocks

    QuilterMomma- you sign/print your name with a fabric pen or pigma pen ( If you use a pigma pen remember to heat set it ) in the white area- some use a fine grit sand paper to hold the fabric in place , I just used my hands to hold in place and not a smooth surface ( a card table that has some give to it, if that makes sense)

    I have been thinking of joining but got word that I need to babysit my 20 month old granddaughter in Iowa who just had ear surgery. I will be tied up until the first part of June without a sewing machine so I will go and have fun being a grandma. I'm sure when I get home I will be ready to sew up a storm. Hopefully next time I can join.

    Got the first package already from Moonrise- haven't even opened it yet was gone all day and too tired to tonight but wanted to let Moonrise know it was here

    Can't believe how slow sign ups have been - is the time too short ? Any suggestions to get more involved ?

    Sharon, Maybe add it to your signature and that way when you comment or post to any other thread, it will "advertise" it. I hope we get a full group, as I would like to have enough to make a lapsize quilt after adding borders, so I can snuggle under it. Also, it seems like the common thread so far is time. Summertime seams to be a busy time for people, so maybe move the date out just a little bit ?

    I think it wouldhelp me to join in only because I can't cut fabric yet. I found some white I bought on sale last weeek just in case I could join but by June 1 was going to be hard and I see Jannie posted she was babysitting so could not. And yes, summer is busy especially right now for gardening and graduations and weddings. A couple of weeks would help me at least. I like this one because I get to use up some of htose scraps and get them moving out and circulated. Lord knows I have enough of those so will be able to do some here and this pattern is cool so will be able to make some more for myself to get a quilt out of this. So two to four weeks works for me then my hand will be healed enough to whip out some of these pretties. I am working on a graduation quilt and a couple of other swaps that I need to finish up this month and my UFOs so busy right now but will have more time in June when can cut.

    Thanks for letting me know they arrived.

    Feel free to post a photo if you like, but if you could, please edit out my last name in the picture. I'd prefer not to have my name floating around on the internet any more than possible. One never knows, these days. I didn't think to snap a photo before I sent them.
    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.

    Since the time frame has been moved out, I am adding my name to the list. I will be able to use some scraps that are piling up! Sharon you did a good job. I like your squares.
