I Am The Best Round Adder In The World!

Well, at least my world!

It is quite amazing, if I say so myself.  I have no idea who owns this little block, but you will be so in love with it.  You will be amazed....just amazed at what a great designer/artist/quilter I am!

The person who passed it to me gave me the most perfect base on which to to work. (Thank you, Laurina!!!!)  Now I don't want to send it on.   I think it needs to stay with me forever!

Yes, I had to work on it, I am leaving for the Caribbean soon an wanted it to be ready to send upon my return.

OMG! Do I love it.  Yes, it is.......(I need a new and exciting adjective).......incredible!

glen:  now I can't wait to send it on......


Received and sent

I received Sandra's block in the mail.  I also sent my block with first round to Helen.  And yes I took a picture lol.

Sandra's round will be challenging to follow...

Reporting

Got the center with 1st border from Helen. A very unique border. Definitely not boring and I really like it!!!
And what do I do now? Hang it up on the design wall and hope I get an inspiration. I will have lots of time to "play" when my husband is gone in 3 days on a 500 miles pilgrimage in Spain. No excuse then!

Mailed & Received!

Just to say I received my new centre with first round to work on, on Wednesday. Thanks, Nan!  Looking forward to doing something with it, though what, I don't yet know.

Also, I am tardy in saying I mailed my centre-with-first-round out to Elizabeth on Monday - right down to the wire, I know.  But it was on time, just...  It's been very busy here lately. (Like always; not sure what my excuse is!)

Great job Cathy!

O.M.G - it's here

I went to the post office this afternoon and picked up the package from Christa. Her round is phenomenal ... and is going to be a tough act to follow.

Ironically, I had been thinking that the second round is usually the easiest for me because the big design decisions have been made and all you have to do is follow the lead of those that preceded you and pull it all together ...  that's definitely not the case this year :-)

Communication!

PLEASE don't forget to let me know when you send and when you receive!  The only thing I don't like about this round robin is having to chase people down to find out what's going on...

Elizabeth, Kate and Liz -- have you mailed out your packages?

Cathy, Kate, Liz, Nan, Sandra and Sophie -- have you received your next package yet?  

Thanks,

Julie

(apologies, of course, if you DID tell me and I spaced it out...)

Oh! Laurina!

It is gorgeous!  And a perfect touch of color!  And that stamp with the Queen is gorgeous.

I have several ideas, but we shall see which one wins out!

On it's Way!!

The center I received with the first row added is on it's way to Julie!

Also, I received my next project from Sophie, Love - Love - Love!! What she did to it!!!
Can't wait to get started...

I received my block for the second border last week, but I didn't want to look at it until I finished the one I was working on.  I finally finished my first border and sent it out yesterday, but it will take about 3 weeks to get to Laurina.  Now to think about the next border!!!

Round Two! Or is it Three?

I received my next piece in the mail yesterday from Glen.  She wrote a love note on it to Ray but none to me!  TSK! I looked at the little gem and an idea popped into my head.  I texted my idea to Glen and she gave her seal of approval so now off to dig in the stash!

Having fun!

In the mail

A center with the first border is on the way to Sophie. What a learning experience this was. Mixed feelings about "is it good enough" and "happy about it".

Suzette!

I mailed my block and first round off to Suzette this morning.

I don't know why this happens, I am either at the post office WITHOUT the block package, or have the block package and AM NOT at the post office.......don't you just hate that?

In the Mail

I mailed a bordered center off for the next round to Sandra today.  I had fun with it!

Cathy

It's nearly spring!

And that means it's time to finish up your first border and get your project in the mail to the next quilter...     

I've heard from a few of you that your packages have been mailed; please be sure to let me know when you send and receive.  My envelope will go to the post office tomorrow.

Another robin is ready to fly ...

Before Swooze posted a couple days ago, I had been thinking I ought to finish my round–it has been sitting on my design wall in a half-finished state for a while–and it would be a good idea to check the deadline for mailing (and stop living in blissful ignorance).  So ... thanks for the nudge.

As I was finishing up my round today, I was thinking about the signs that your quilt may have passed through my hands:

  • It will be scrappy (unless you said you explicitly said you wanted something otherwise)
  • An organic shape may find it's way onto your quilt 
  • Letters are a definite possibility

Alphabet Soup

It will be going in the mail to Marie in the next day or so.  I'll email you, Marie, with the tracking number when it's on it's way.

First border complete and ready to go

I think I had this finished 2 days after it arrived. Not trying to sound like an overachiever, but life has been a bit demanding lately and I'm happy if I get anything done ahead of its due date.

It's all packaged up and ready to put in the mail. Should have plenty of time to find its way to its destination.

Here's a peek at the first border - the colors have been (significantly) changed to protect the innocent.

Ready to Send

I had it in my head that I was to have my block with border ready this week.  It is all ready and looks like I'm within the 2 week window for sending so will be posting it off today.

How is everyone else doing?
