    I have my four paws done for the corners now to decide a simple strip of tone on tone OR do I try to squeeze a couple blocks or more in between them.. already framed the center with a 2" piece so now the decisions come into ply. lots of stuff.. will have pics later today after I whip up dinner for Senior Grumpo

    Love the frame on Kelly's center Jan - well done. I think I have a plan but will have to play a little more to be sure.
    I have to sew the corners on yours and then I can post pics too.

    Linda - I vote for the simple strip of tone on tone with those four paw corners. It will frame the panel and give the next round a place to add some interesting blocks with out losing your corners.

    I like the design Paula, blends well with the center. It's hard to tell on my monitor for some reason today, the green looks like the lighter shade that is in the floral but the other looks really red, like a dk. tomato red. Think you probably used a little darker pink shade. I'm sure I'll love it!!
    Think I goofed on Kelly's now that I look at my pic, forgot to trim those dog ears on the corners, sorry.

    The colors in the pic look awful - I promise they really so match. I will try to get a better one later.

    Jan you are right that the green the lighter shade in the leaves on the black fabric and the "red" is really a raspberry.

    Don't worry about any dog ears on Kelly's - I will trim them up if needed.

    I'm sure they match I have no doubt about that at all, it's going to be beautiful. Didn't give you too much choice on those "ears" unless you want to send it back to me to finish "my" job Thanks for your extra hand with that one!! The pic on facebook looks totally different on this monitor, looks great, or maybe it's just my eyes this morning you just never know.....

    Strange how different post make it look different. I posted the same pic in both places and they look different to me too.

    Jan,
    I received your package of Kelly's center today. Took care of those pesky dog ears and it is up on my design wall for inspiration (and safely)

    Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.

    Brat - that is a great center. It will be fun to see how it evolves as each of us add to it.

    Now that brings it all up front and personal, love all the pics side by side. Each one of ours is so different, this will be interesting.

    These centers are sooo interesting. When do you complete the whole project(s)? I will be watching, I'm so interested in what each of you will add.

    We are ahead of schedule right now so it is hard to tell when we will be complete - possibly before Christmas.
    Normally a round robin can take up to a year to complete.

    Such a fun idea! So you guys will received a completed top that was finished in part by 5 different people (including your own center of course)? I will have fun watching this thread to see the additions!
    I love quilting - it's cheaper than therapy!

    thank you for your vote of confidence all those who are just watching. Its heartwarming to see a following of our little venture. I loved reading all about the last one in the picture section here amazing the transformations that became of little centers!

    I am working on my first center tomorrow for Dragonfly. I am going to go blue and green for the next round in batiks and with luck it might even work. the grey outer edge is also dark blue so it blends well together. (I hope!)
