    Wildyard, Yes, there was a pre-determined max size your center block is. We have 2 months to work on each others centers. We will not get them back till next year. Now, the begining rounds won't take that long. But, as the quilt "grows", you will need a bit of extra time to construct and attach your round. Sometimes a plain border is appropriate and it's fine to use it.

    And, thank you. I am really starting to like the 30's reproduction prints. I like that color a lot also. (giggle)

    Wow, ladies - your centers are amazing. Mine seems so plain compared to yours. I can see the challenge is on! I can hardly wait.

    Tam...moo, you are onto blue, too!! It's beautiful! I always love florals, but haven't worked a lot with them. Don't know why, either! Now, I'll have a chance with this lovely blue and yellow print!
    What size is it? It looks like a rectangle.

    Yes, that is exactly what I meant. I will be the last one in this robin to work on her quilt so I thought I would make the offer.

    Tam...moo Your block is very creative. I love the floral center. It amazes me that all 6 of us have some shade of blue as a main color and we never had a clue what anybody's looked like until they were posted. This is going to be one great round robin. I will be adding the final border to yours tam...moo so I've got quite a while to think about it.
    Happy Quilting,

    Oh Tam..moo that is stunning!

    Well, that makes it official - all used some shade of blue. Should we call ourselves The Blue Robins ? {{{groan}}}

    Sorry, I just couldn't help myself.

    copied each from here, put them each into a Powerpoint slide and saved the whole group as a new picture.
    Glad you like it.

    I would love to have one of each of your centers. They are all beautiful. I will be watching to see how each one is finished.

    All are lovely. Five have blue and/or turquoise in the block. It will be interesting to see how each of you adds to the blocks. I enjoyed learning how the Round Robin works; I was not sure about the procedure.

    I was just thinking last night how I wish they were all together in one place to look at. You must have been reading my mind. lol Thanks for doing this. I love it!

    Even though they all have some shade of blue (which amazes me) they are still very unique it will be so much fun to see what we decide to add to them as they get to us.
    Happy Quilting,

    I love the blue turquoise as well but I changed my mind at the last minute to use the colors that my sister loved she just passed away in December so I wanted to have something just to remember her by.

    Tammy, I was wondering if you created that block? I would want to do just the same if I had a loved one who had passed away. I'm sure you still miss her a lot. Did your sister quilt? Are you a cattle rancher? Or a cotton grower? Most every cow I see in my area is a dairy cow!

    I had not heard of this ... but it sounds like a really fun thing to do... look forward to seeing everyones' creativity. So far the centers are great.. ..

    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.

    OOo, pretty. LOL, we all went with some type of blue. Tam Moo, I love the florals you used. It should really be fun to work on. I'm so sorry about your sister.

    No, that was just a coincidence. We had no clue what anyone was making until we posted them here,and I couldn't believe that all 6 of us had some color of blue as a big part of each block.
    Happy Quilting,
