    I love everyone's centers--they are so beautiful!!

    Weather has been nice-sunny and warm daytime and cool first night--but we have a lot of smoke and ash in the air because of a big fire not too close, but close enough so the smell and ash is no fun-plus the smoke is ruining the normally beautiful blue and the view of Mt Lassen is covered by smoke!!

    Well, this is a first for me. I've never done a RR. These are great so far. I too hope we will see the ongoing progress of these quilts.

    Been looking at your lovely center!! Tell us about how you made it-is it PP? I bet you took an idea and enlarged it! How is the circle set in the square? I'm curious!

    Patti; This is a first for me, too! The "unknown" is so exciting to me. I wonder about my ability to choose the right thing for a round, it's going to be a challenge. I have a couple books that teach about borders and I keep looking at quilts that are made with centers and several borders!

    I Love seeing all your centers. You will have so much fun working on each other's quilts and will learn a ton. Can't wait to see the progress.

    I agree, this will be fun to watch as you all progress. I have often wanted to do such a round robin but I have been to shy because I fear my skills will not be up to par with others. I know my confidence problem.

    For those of you who have asked about my center: It is made by sewing two strips together and then cutting "wedges" with a 12 degree ruler placed on an angle across the strip set. You sew the wedges together like you would a Dresden Plate. Then you applique on a center. Adding the corner pieces was a bit tricky for me as I hate to sew curves - but I got it done.
    Check out Phillips Fiber Arts - it is a free pattern from them. http://phillipsfiberart.danemcoweb.c...gree-freebies/

    My first time too! I understand what you mean about wondering about my abilities and looking around at other quilts for ideas. I don't want to mess up anyone's hard work.

    For those of us who are new to the concept, can you explain exactly what a Round Robin is and how it works?

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Hi Linda - Sure it goes like this: Say you have 6 players, identified as A, B, C, D, E, and F.
    Each player makes a "center" and mails it to the next player in line: A mails to B, B mails to C, etc.
    B them adds a border or "round" to what was received from A
    B then mails the whole thing to C
    C adds a round and mails it to D
    And so on through the list to F, each player adding a round to the whole that was received.
    F then mails it for the last time back to its owner A as a completed quilt top.

    The size for each "round" is determined before the robin begins. So for the first round each player might add a 3" round to what they receive. The second round each player would add the next stated size - say a 5" round.

    The end size of each quilt is determined by the creator based on the size of the center initially sent

    Hope that helps.

    Ok Robinettes, this is the center I picked. It's called 1930's square from QuiltersCache.com. It's still a bit overcast here for pictures. But, hopefully this will do the job. It's 14 1/2" square.

    Judith, it's perfect!! I totally love that turquoise fabric and the pattern! I have used that fabric in that color and maybe another color! My center is packaged and ready to deliver to you. Probably get it to the PO tomorrow.

    I will get to put the finishing round on your center!! Whee-hoo!

    Can I add a me 3 on this also. This is my first round robin also. And also wonder if my skill are up to these beauties. But, knowing I'm not the only one to feel this way, makes me feel better. But, I just know they are all going to be great. And I will feel more confident after pushing myself to try something new.

    I'm so ready to get started. I can't wait to see the color of yours up close and personal before I pull fabric. And, I can't wait to see what mine will look like next year after all of you have worked on it. I will be mailing mine next week. I going to try to have it ready on Monday.

    Judith1005, love your center, the colors are so pretty. I will be adding the second round to yours can't wait to see what Paula (dragonfly nana) adds to it. And now that makes 5 of us with blue in our center. That's so cool. Ok we only need one more picture from tam...moo to finish out the pictures of our centers.

    This is my 2nd round robin, and I promise you all you will enjoy it, and learn lots from it. The main thing is to have fun. I can't wait to get started. I'm mailing mine out Monday it goes to tam...moo.
    Happy Quilting,
    Gena

    Judith that is darling and as Gena said - another shade of blue! A fabric I have immediately sprang into my head that should go perfectly with what you have shown, but like you said I will wait until it arrives just to make sure.
    I am looking forward to being the first to add to it.

    Now, if Tam...moo also chose blue for her Christmas style - it is really going to be funny.

    Paula, thanks for the explanation, I get it now. So each quilt will be square unless you make your original center rectangular. Each person adds a pieced border of the predetermined size but of their own creation in both color and design, then passes it on to the next person in line. Would anyone ever add a regular strip border, either narrow or wide, at any point, if they felt it was appropriate to the design?
    Would it be considered inappropriate to start with a, say, 36" center if you wanted to end up with a larger quilt at the end???? Or do you also pre-determine acceptable ranges for the starting square sizes too?
    What is the usual turnover time that each person keeps the quilt piece they have between times to pass it on? I am leary of deadlines. LOL
    Thanks for educating us on this process. Maybe one day I, too, will be brave enough to join one. LOL

    Judith, I am sooooo in love with the turquoise color in your block!! I love all your blocks but that color is one of my favorites.

    PS: What does the hint about having the white background fabric in your stash mean? Would you share it if someone wanted to use it in their section of your quilt?
