    Mine will be in the mail in the morning. Running a couple of days behind. Sorry about that! Taking vacation over Thanksgiving really threw things off.

    Here's a (rather lousy) photo of my finished row, with the sashing and cornerstones. I had to take the photo in sections and "glue" the two pictures together, so the middle block looks weird. See page 1 of this thread for a better photo of the blocks.

    SazuBMidlands - Your row arrived safe and sound yesterday. How cute! I actually made a similar quilt for my dad's Christmas a few years ago, so I have some ideas already in mind.

    Everybody's being waaaay too quiet! When I was a kid, my mom always said that I was getting into trouble whenever I was being too quiet, and she'd have to come check on me. So ... what kind of trouble are y'all getting into?

    Fantastic!! So happy it got there safely :-)
    I'm not getting up to trouble! I'm trying to finish up 3 full size quilts for Christmas, and am finding work is really getting in the way!
    Hopefully after Christmas people will be a bit more chatty?

    Glad you're not getting into trouble! LOL! Whew ... 3 quilts for Christmas? Pics, please! I'm still working on gifts myself. It's hard to believe Christmas is less than two weeks away.

    I've got the blocks made for your row! Now to iron them, square them up, and sew them together, and then attach them to the row. And hope my measurements are right! (That part scares me! )

    I forgot to ask. Are we supposed to post pics, or is it a surprise?

    Babeyruth - Did my row arrive okay? The DC# says it was delivered, but I just wanted to make sure. With the post office, one never knows these days.

    I had to do some minor adjusting on my blocks, but the second time it went together perfectly. Yay! I went back and read the first post, and it talks about posting pictures, so here it is! I hope you like it. The blue background is actually more of a navy blue color, and it has subtle stars and metallic gold dots on it. The red fabric has stars as well. I only had a FQ of the red, and it was a smaller-than-usual FQ, but somehow it was JUST big enough. (Whew!) The sailboats are all embroidered/appliqued, and they're all a bit different from each other. I'll post a close-up of one of the blocks, too.

    Talking

    Oh wow! Thats fantastic!!! I LOVE it! And, my, aren't you fast!
    I haven't recieved anything yet. Hopefully soon...

    The quilts I'm doing are one for my fiancee (we got engaged on the 2nd Dec!!! Still very excited and prone to spontaneous smiling and telling the world - sorry!) which is a Round Robin from a different board, there's one for his sister who lives with us, which is from a layer cake, and one which was another Round Robin for a couple of years ago, which my fiancee ( ) paid for to be quilted for me. For both his and mine I have additional things to add as well as the binding. I'll post photos, probably after Christmas though.

    Everyone is very quiet on here. Is everyone too busy having a fun and festive holiday time?
    Has everyone posted their first row? I haven't recieved a row yet and am just wondering what the status is.

    Hi Lori,
    My quilt is going to be black & white or white & black print fabric blocks with a bright color added to block. NO Solid Black as I am going to use solid black between the blocks. I would like each blocks bright color to be different, or a different shade of the colors already used. I am going to have bright yellow, blue, green, red, & purple if I remember right. Sorry, I have been traveling and on vacation since November 29th, and won't be home to mail my blocks until the second week of January. They are very simple blocks so it won't take you much time to do them when they arrive to you. Any questions PM me.
