Ok--I'm finished with Mary's row! Jane-do you want me to send it on soon or hold until Feb 11?
Mary--wanna see it? Hope you like it...
Barbara, that looks great. The mailing date is by Feb. 1 rather than Feb. 11.
Oh, WOW!!! That is stunning. It surpasses all of my expectations. I had to stop and count to see when I get it back! You really nailed my idea of a color scheme. I have to ask, are those buttons in the jars? I tried enlarging but still wasn't sure. I think that looks like chocolate chip cookies on the bottom left and buttons in the others. But I am just not sure.
Thank you so much for all the effort you put into this. I am humbled by your efforts and talent.
LOL...I am not a fan of mending myself. I keep explaining that it is not sewing but they just don't believe me. We farm and raised three sons. It seems that something always needed mending for a long time AND my sons would volunteer me for projects at school. You would not believe the things I have made for our small school. So, a couple of times a year is okay now.
My LQS picks a couple of patterns and does two different BOM. One is always a Moda collection of fabric. The group I am with is the Civil War. I think the fabric is Julie Rothermal but I am not sure. Last year was my first year and I did it because I liked the quilt. They offered it in feed sack (30s repro) fabrics and CW. I did the feed sack but I enjoyed the ladies so much I decided to do it again this year. I am not very excited about the quilt, though.
I can't wait until I get the 30s RR. I love 30s myself and have lots of ideas but want to see what everyone else is doing. I took the BOM and am doing this RR to force myself to try new things. it is easy to do what I have always done. But challenges are good.

You're right about the jars--and I think someone's been sneaking cookies! I explained my choice of blocks/colors in your little book.
You girls are SOOOOO talented!!! Absolutely love what you did Barbara on Mary's row and the way you tied in the colors she chose is perfect!

Please hang onto it til 2/1. Still working on yours! Your row for Marys' quilt looks great.
Okay, Barbara. Here's a sneak peak. 'Ocean waves' for your seashore and 'escargot' as a bonus!! Now back to my sewing machine. . . .
Love the batiks, Jane---you did a great job!
My hubby likes escargot--I can't stomach the little suckers though. The snail trail looks difficult and I've never had the nerve to try it. Looks like you've got it mastered. Thanks for your hard work...it looks great!
I'll send Mary's in a couple of weeks.
