    Just another case of "great minds think alike"

    Judith - I know what I am going to do with your center when it arrives! Just want to make sure the colors match.
    Gena - Mine will be in tomorrow's mail to you. Good luck. Actually, I have no clue what I would do next with my center.

    Paula, I've actually been looking at some things today for yours, have a few ideas but won't really know until I see it in person. After looking at it for a few days I'm sure it will come to me. I'll probably change my mind several times before I decide anyway. lol I can't wait to see it!!
    Happy Quilting,
    Gena

    Paula, I'm going to try to get mine out to you tomorrow. But, I will let you know for sure. My cocker spaniel had surgery a couple of days ago. She's doing well. But, her bandage change is tomorrow. And I will take my mom to run errands tomorrow. So, I will try to incorporate a trip to the P.O. also.

    I get to work on Nancy's first. And I don't have a clue what I'm going to do yet. I like to look and feel before I decide what direction I want to head in. I'm getting excited tho. I always get such inspiration from the fabrics and style used also.

    I can be patient as I have a DQ to finish first so no rush if you don't make the PO tomorrow. I hope your fur baby will get a good report when the bandage is removed.

    I am a graph paper gal - I have already drawn out the centers that Judith and Nancy posted. I copy them and then play on paper until I get a feel for what I want to do. When I decide - most of the math is already done because of the graph paper. :-)

    I love playing on graph paper too, and I think it will be a fun exercise to take your centers and see what I come up with to add. It will be fun to compare my ideas to what you all do.

    I wish I knew how to use graph paper. I hear alot of people talking about using it. Is it easy to use? I'm not very good with the math part of sewing Sounds like graph paper would help me out alot. If you get a chance maybe you could email me and explain how it works if it's not to much trouble. Give me a little tutorial on using graph paper.
    Happy Quilting,

    So, show us a picture of what you come up with!! I'm not a graph paper person, but I should be, as I can see how helpful it would be. I might try my hand at it yet!

    Jillnjo, I got your beautiful center. I think I know what I'm going to do. I am going to place an order for fabric today that I think will compliment your pretty center.

    Dragonfly Nana, I mailed off my center to you today. Coco's bandage change went well. We go back again in a couple of days for another one.

    Very beautiful centers. I'd love to join a round robin someday, but I am new to quilting and get nervous about my border not doing the quilt justice.

    I used a block design from Quilters Cache but made a few changes based on the yellow fabric I had for the border. My sister could sew any clothing item and make it fit perfectly but she was just starting to quilt. We were working together planning her first quilt and yellow and blue were the colors she chose. I am actually an HR Director but love living in a small town surrounded by cotton fields and kind hearted people.

    I'll be at the mailbox, waiting, yaya!

    I am also going to experiment with the graph paper. I need to pick up some colored pencils so I can play with color choices, too!

    My sad looking garden is needing some attention, so I'm heading outside this morning. Everyone have a great day!

    Got the email and have the centers all graphed out and ready to color and play. Thanks so much for the photo and your great directions.

    Just for general FYI, I don't think there is any WRONG size graph paper, since you assign the size to each square that you want it to represent.

    Have fun playing with this on these blocks all, and next thing you know you will be creating your own patterns! It's so much fun!!!
