I've gotten some questions about the email I sent last night (let me know if you did not receive yours) so here's how to interpret the instructions:
Mail your center block by January 15 to:
>>> Julie Waldman
(I will photograph your block and send it out to the person who's going to add the first border)
Mail block with 1 border by March 10 to:
>>> John Doe
>>> all fabrics must be purple
(these are the preferences for the center block you received, not the person you'll be mailing the first border to; you did not receive John Doe's center block!)
Mail block with 2 borders (flimsy) by April 20 to:
>>> Suzie Sunshine
>>> loves all those 30's fabrics and Sunbonnet Sue!
(these are the preferences for the center block with one border that you received, not the person you'll be mailing the second border to; you did not receive Suzie's project!)
Mail finished quilt by May 31 to:
>>> Jane Jetson
>>> The wilder the better, but it needs to be washable
(these ARE Jane's preferences, because you'll be mailing her finished quilt home to her)
Kristin had the great idea that I should include a copy of the preferences with each center block I send out, so that the preferences will accompany each center through its rounds -- I'll do that.
To sum up, four people will work on each quilt -- the center, the two borders, and the finishing. (I know I originally said five, but that was wrong)
Any other questions, just let me know!
