Housekeeping

I've sent an email to all the participants with information about mailing your center block to me -- if you think you're participating but you didn't receive an email, first check your spam folder and then shoot me an email if there's nothing there!

Also, new people will receive an email invitation from Blogger to join this blog so that you can post your own messages.  Please remember not to post photos of the center blocks!

Thanks, and we're off and running!

Last Call!

This is your last opportunity to sign up for the 2013 Cotton Robin.  If you've been on the fence, now is the time to jump!

Your center block will be due in my mailbox by January 15 -- it can be anywhere from 6.5" square to 9.5" square, or a rectangle with the longest side at 9.5"  (unfinished sizes)

I will be sending out an email to each participant with my mailing address and other instructions next week.

Thanks,

Julie

It's getting closer...

The 2013 Cotton Robin is coming together, but it's definitely still open for a few more participants!  We have a good mix of new players long with many of last year's.

Here's how it works:
The center block will be due to me by January 15.  I will mix them up and send them out, and then you'll have about 5 weeks to add the first border.

You'll send the project to the next person by the end of February, and you'll have about 6 weeks to add a second border on the one you receive.

You'll send the project to the last person by the middle of April, and then you'll have about 6 weeks to quilts and bind the one you receive before sending it "home" to its original owner.

You'll be able to list some likes/dislikes when you send in your center block, and you can choose to send a very small amount of fabric along if you want to -- no more than 1/2 yard.

Please shoot me a comment or an email if you'd like to join in, and make sure that there's an email address so I can respond to you.  (Diane in Canada -- I still need your email address if you want to play!)
