    The stars you put around the center are perfect -

    I noticed that KLue has sent the Friendship Star block several times to use in "group quilts" - so it seemed like a good choice on a couple of levels.

    Very dramatic looking.

    Hi love your centre. It is great. I also saw the one with the friendship stars. What a difference a border can make to the centre. your quilts will look so different and yet so beautiful when finished. ciao

    I can't get over how fantastic the border is here Gai!! When I first saw it, I sent a PM to KLue because I didn't realize this was going on...I'd love to be a layer (or a 'rouge robin') if anyone has to drop out for any reason!! I love KLue, and was really sad to see she dropped out of the IRR with her beautiful centers and all that hard work. She is certainly one of our most talented quilters and her absence just sucks!!! (to be blunt)

    Keep on posting, these are awesome!

    you're making me blush - you're far too kind.

    Hi. Guys, only just catching up on this thread, because I kind of lost it, not getting any reminders. Gai, what on earth did you mean with your comment. I might LIKE applique, but it doesn't necessarily follow that I am good at it. For all you know, my stitches might look as if I chewed them! (I hope they don't, but you never know, LOL). Anyway, I look forward to getting your parcel soonish, as I now have an idea what to do next, providing I can make it work. Please remind me, am I to put a 5in border on?

    HEADLINE NEWSFLASH!!!
    Today in County Sligo, Ireland, a local woman's nose began to grow like Pinocchio's. "It's really quite remarkable" noted a neighbor. "Evidently it began when she made a disparaging comment about her applique ability. She's really exceptionally good at it, you know!"

    ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am splitting my sides here - thankfully, that pic doesn't resemble me at all. OK, I give in, yes, I like applique, and it doesn't look too bad - as long as it doesn't fray, then I am happy.

    the IRR is a round robin quilt project where a bunch of people form a group and they mail their quilt centers around and the other people add borders.

    i was supposed to be a part of a group but i had to drop out.

    when some of the people on the forum heard they started this small group to work on my center.

    they're absolutely wonderful people.

    Sheree, you might want to either do a search for IRR group 1 through group 10....or watch the recent topics in the next few days. You will find that there are threads for 10 different groups doing a Round Robin this year. Its the 2nd year for board members to do this. Each group has 6 people and the quilt centers are flying around the world. Its tons of fun...It lasts for approximately a year, so you have plenty of time to watch...maybe you can join us next year! :-D

    Last year there were 3 full groups and a 4th group that had only 5 people, so the quilts finished a bit smaller. Unfortunately, the person who organized the groups is no longer a member of this board, so there aren't pictures of all the finished groups on here. There are a lot of them shown here though http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-26814-1.htm It was amazing how it grew this year :lol:

    Thanks Patti. It is too bad that all of the pictures of all of the hard work are not available, but the ones I saw are beautiful.
