Okay, dunce of the class here. Do I add more fabrics around the initial block and embellish those, or do I simply embellish a "round" of the original block?

And on the same line of being a confused Newbie do you just receive one block each month to work on?

I have never participated in a RR. Would you say this RR is for a more experienced crazy quilter.

I am thinking about this Smile. Have been wanting to do more CQ work for a while and have lots of supplies stored up. Just need to make sure that I won't over-commit myself by jumping in.

Then there is the big decision on what color to go with . . .

I'm in. Finished the block I am going to send out.

Me! I will send you a pm.

Edited to say - I am a newbie as well, have joined several RR and have learned so much each time. Especially when the blocks come around and you can see what others have created. Practice, practice, practice

I can't wait to see all of your beautiful work when this is done. Looking forward to retirement so I can sit down and maybe use some of the tons of CQ stuff I have accumulated. Please post lots of pictures Smile

I'm thinking about it. I already have a block I made a year ago and never started it. Let me get my garden plowed first and then I'll feel like I have the time to put into each block.

I have made it far enough to select my fabrics. They are on the cutting board, and I'm hoping to get a block pieced today or tomorrow!

Colleen,

Why don't you start marking who has mailed...and when we all get them done...you can give us our group info and we can mail within say...three days.

Mine got finished today! I added a bit of lace...now, just have to do a little "booklet" so y'all can write about your ideas and such in completing your portions of the block.

Are Needlecrazy, Califgal, LisaTX, and TerryOH going to participate in this CQ? I didn't see their names added to the top...

Holee, said she might after she gets her garden plowed.

TerryOH might have been offering samples.

I was just offering samples to help others to decide. Crazy is just not my style.

I would like to join in this . . . I love the monochromatic idea, just don't know what color I'm going to do. I'll just have to go and play in my sewing room and see what inspires me.

Please add me to your list.
Apr 03, 2013, 09:20 PM
Lisa - TX
I would LOVE to join in, but after thinking about my current commitments, I just can not do it Frown. My color would have been sepia, using some of the Wizard of Oz fabric that I have in the sepia colors. I'll have to save that idea for another time. I'm in the middle of a quilt for DD#1 and I need to make it a priority to finish.

Will be watching the progress and drooling over everyone's pictures!

I sent you a PM with my information for this - did you get it?
Apr 07, 2013, 08:05 PM

Thanks . . .I got my block all done and ready to mail. I'll try to post a picture of it later - not very good at that and will need some help.

I have a terrible time getting photos posted... so you may not see my block. I pulled fabric today...found lots of greens so the block will be various shades/textures in green. And I will have the block ready to go by the mailing date.

May 1st is good for me. I am still looking for a couple of kits I bought a long time ago. One was in Whites and the other was greens. If I don't find it by tomorrow or get overpowered by my stash I will have to get into the fat quarter stash and choose a color on my own. Smile I have found more UFO's while looking so I have a lot of work to take to the sewing meets once a week.
