    Yes cīmon where are you. We need one more and you get plenty of time to do your piece, think she said 8 weeks. Loads of time.

    I recruited one more on the chat room last night.
    So I think we are 5, which is good. If there is more interest, that's OK too, but we can go with 5.

    I was dreaming about my center block last night, didnt get much sleep

    Cool! 5 will work!

    Now, just post all directions/instructions and we can get started. I think maybe starting in Sept would work for everyone. That way, people can get their center block done.

    gorgeous gorgeous quilts!!! I love Round Robins! I did a few of them a few years ago, but its been a while since I was involved in another. Maybe next year I will look into trying another one. I got too much on my plate right now . I have to be smart about it as there are time limits to get these beautiful pieces of work off to the next person.

    OK, 5 is great! I'm thinking about my center block also...Don't have a CLUE! I'll be surfing tonight looking at quilts and searching for patterns. Can you recommend a good size for the center? What size did your 2 quilts you've shown here end up being?

    Got to get back busy...working on the challenge block swap blocks. I'm almost done...yea! Early too! With that one done, I'll have more time to devote to the round robin. I just can't wait to get started!

    I know you all are excited to get started on this, and I am sorry to delay the process, but I am scheduled to be out of town for a few days and I just didnt get it done today...Too many calls.

    So, I promise Ill have it posted by the weekend.

    To get you started thinking,,,
    Your center can be any size using 24 or 30 inches, done in any colors and any technique.

    Example:
    24 x 24 is OK, 24 x 30 is OK 30 x 30 is OK

    28 x 30 is not.....

    My reasoning is this,,, multiples of 6 " are easier to build the next round on to, and if we want a bed size quilt when done anything smaller that 24 wont get you there.

    We will start by having the first due date to ship your project on as Nov 1, 2008. That's 2 months for working and shipping.

    Talk to you soon....

    I will work up the rules and post. So far we are three, so I think if we have two more, we are good to go.

    We dont have to do a quilt this large. Let me know your preference on that topic. We started with a 30" center. We can start smaller or just let people do what they like and see what happens. Let me know what you think.

    We do need some guidelines and Ill work on that today.

    does the round robin have to be applique??!! If not, then I will be glad to represent Minneapolis suburb #1! :)

    No, it doesn't have to be applique, you choose the technique you like to work in.

    Yippee!! We're excited to have you, Tisha. Glad you got in Steph!

    Judy, thanks for the info. Nov. sounds fine to me. No need to get in any hurry...I'm kinda a slow quilter anyway (and with the price of fabric...who can afford to be fast??) I may not get any sleep for awhile dreaming about what to do for my center. This is sooo exciting! I'll be driving my poor DH crazy with this. He already thinks I'm nuts to be doing the block swap..."Just why are you sending off perfectly good blocks??" :lol: :lol: He'll be wanting me to keep everyone else's quilts! :roll:

    I'm off to surf now for ideas..

    Speachless! Gourgous quilts!

    I didn't keep up with the forum enough to get in on this, maybe next time. :wink:
    Sort of new to quilting and committed to some classes right now. So that will keep me busy.

    Hope you will all post pictures!!!!!!

    Great Steph, welcome aboard, this is great. I thought we were starting in September and not November as Patti said, maybe I didnīt read it right.
    Can you put me right please.

    Why not leave the invites open until Sept 1. If we don't have to have the centers out until Nov 1, that gives others the rest of this month to decide if they want to join in and then the entire months of Sep and Oct to work on this.

    So, should we start a new sort of sign up thread??
