    Dragonfly I received your priority envelope today. Now I have two! I am half way done with yours. I fixed the little side issue and have the length put in.. now to come up with something a tad more exciting on the bottom and top. I lost it when I couldnt mathematically do 1/8th inch solutions. then it all went emotionally down for me so I am sorry its not running out the door. I have two borders I made to go on.. a saw tooth and a braid neither worked and by the time I realized why they didnt fit right it was too late. I had cut them to heck .. so new day new idea. now its all the correct size. phew! bet it will look good though lol..

    Brat - I am sure whatever you come up with will be stunning. I must admit I am a little stuck on Kelly's. Measurements are weird at 29 1/2 inches square.

    Kelly - would you be opposed to a fabric that is white with a tiny red leaf on it?

    Dragonfly Nana, I was too, so just put the border on it thinking the next person could "chop" a little if they needed to for the design they wanted to do. I wasn't able to divide by 3 so just added my "quota" to it. Sorry if that messed you up, thought I was doing a favor on Kelly's. So much easier if it is divisible by 3's. As far as I am concerned, feel free to cut some of my border off. Think I measured mine to go by increments of three's for that reason, or I hope so. Kelly , just wondering if you have Melinda's yet?

    Jan, No I haven't mailed yet but Kelly is ok with that she knows with the death of my uncle things have been insane for me. I will get it out in the next day or two. Hopefully the healing will begin.

    I was just curious Melinda, trying to pre-plan a little. Hadn't heard about your uncle, so sorry for the loss of your family member. Healing will begin, it just takes time.

    Jaba, thank you. Yeah he had been struggling with ALS for the past three years. We all knew it was coming eventually we were all just hoping for a little more time. It is such a HORRIBLE disease. When I am in a better mental state I want to get involved with our local ALS chapter. The week I was at my parents house is when it happened. Fortunately I got to see him on Tuesday when I got there and then on Friday late night my cousin called me and told us. We rushed in to town to be there for my aunt (my mothers sister) and cousins. It has hit me harder than I anticipated. Like to the point sometimes it is hard to get out of bed and want to wake up. My kids, hubby and family have been my savings grace. Thanks for your wonderful words.

    Brat, perfect addition to Dragonfly's top, really enhances it!
    Dragonfly I didn't notice until now the background you chose....that is really cool!...it's all the little insects in the marsh and the dragonflies are flitting about happily catching them! Hope that's not a disturbing visual....I think it's awesome.

    I just saw this and can't wait to see how all the centers turn out. They are all so beautiful, so are all the additions.
    Brat I really love what you have done with the dragonflies.

    Brat - I love it! The thin goldish yellow gives it a rich touch and the blue and green two are perfect additions to keep the "nature" feel.
    Cognito - I had not thought of by background quite that way but I like the your description.

    I am going to ponder Jaba's center today. I have the raspberry/green edged quilt now to work with for those not playing. I am thinking of extending that green line out to finish at a point but then I end up with just doing a strip around the quilt in the rest of the areas. What say you to this everyone please feel free to kibitz. I need to figure how to do that too btw. its not a magic act for me its tough work doing angles and math. 45 degree angle cut surely. my row is 6.5 inches adding on so its a bit wider. my other thought was to turn that green line in the opposite direction and have it turn into a square on each side... instead of the center green square that I first thought.. oh ideas ideas...

    Sorry Elisabrat, I'm not part of the group and am totally lost on what you will be doing. But it sure sounds interesting. I will be watching to see which direction you go in.

    Pretty first rounds ladies. You all started with some pretty and diverse centers. Should be an exciting journey!
