Anna, thanks so much for being willing to take on what will most definately be a challenge. I am really looking forward to picking up the pace now that I hit on something that really excites me.
I can help out working in the sewing machine if the other two gals, peggy and babeyruth do not wish to.
LOVE IT WHIGROSE!!!! Love it when inspiration finally hits us literally. It is looking good. Love the variety. I think that is the part that appeals to me the most.
I think I have something I can live with now for my starter row. Mind you, none of the components are sewn together yet because I have to applique the three little sampler blocks so it all looks quite ragged. Today didn't see much time in my sewing room because dh and I were busy with winter preparations outside but tomorrow dh is helping our neighbor again and I anticipate being able to complete this row once and for all. Yea me.
Let me know if you think I should consider changing anything around or doing something different.
I love those gorgeous colors..really beautiful. If I had to move something around, I would consider flipping the second line of flying geese to point towards the center, then it will lead the eyes back to the inside of your quilt and the beautiful sewing machine featured!
Looking forward to working on it!
I know I am up to working on whatever someone is willing to let me try. lol
I know I plan on sending some fabric scraps of the matching fabric in case someone wants to incorporate it into their row, I thought it may just help, but very optional.
That definitely works, when I did my applique for the dresden plates I thought of cutting the background into smaller sizes because they would be easier to work with than the whole row, but I decided not too since one long row with just one seam in the center was faster!
Great comments, thank you. I do intend to flip the FG on the right side. What you don't see is it is all one long strip that is partially hidden under the sewing machine block. I have to wait to see how everything lines up after I do my applique stitching on the three little blocks and join their components together before I cut into it.
Last night I flipped the HST over that are above the machine. Amazing how much color it put into the row.
I am another that plans on sending along some fabric with my row. I may also send the drawings for the remaining sampler blocks should anyone want to do anything with those.
What I don't want to do is stiffle anyone's creativity so no one is expected to use anything that comes in the packet.
I am so looking forward for the opportunity to work on a 'modern' quilt. Such clean colors and lines. I'm stoked waiting for it to come my way. Love what you've done.
Sure, I am doing my craft show and you get to have all the fun. Craft show went alright, sold one quilt, a runner, and possibly one of my more expensive ones. Yeah....
So now I get to start on my rr. I am thrilled.
Whigrose, I just love it and agree with babeyruth on her suggestions. What does it look if it is put on the top on that side? Just curious. So all of us are in agreement of working you machines in so we will enjoy it. Well, I have to get some things done at home here and get on the lonarm so will talk soon.
Can you stand one more picture?
I have finally completed my R X R for this group. Everything is sewn, appliqued, trimmed and ready for packaging. Wahoo! Doing the happy dance here.
Now, to clean up what looks like a volcanic fabric eruption.
Oh yeah!!!! love this for sure. Going to have some fun here now. You did good girl. It is amazing how things come together sometimes.
