    Waahoo! I'm excited. This is my first r/r robin... and I'm doing 2! For this group, I'm did a row of mostly traditional 12.5" blocks in shabby chic colors. I've got a picture around here somewhere - I'll have to find it and post tomorrow.

    What do y'alls rows look like?

    Okay I found it and this is my first Row Robin as well as new to the QB. I too am excited. I'm going to be easy to please since I will be learning about the way things work. What do we do first?

    I haven't decided but will probable stay with traditional block. The Theme is "As You Like It". No requests other than enjoy and do what makes each person happy. After I have been through this first one boy, look out! I may have lots of do's and don'ts. LOL

    Here is my row. The picture looks sideways, but that's the easiest way to see the row like it should be. I think.

    Ok, I've "borrowed" this post from Lisa_wanna_b_quilter, the team leader for #5. I guess we should be addressing these issues among ourselves before we do anything else:

    2 of our group members are up in the air (as I understand it) right now, so once that gets sorted out, I'll get the mailing addresses to the correct people. You will always send to the same person each time, so you only have to keep track of one address instead of 5 (or 4, really, because you already know your own address).

    Mailing Dates

    You have two months to get each round done.

    1st Row – mail by Dec. 1st
    Row 2 – Feb. 1st
    Row 3 – April 1st
    Row 4 – June. 1st
    Row 5 – Aug. 1st


    I have never done this before so feel free to jump in with suggestions of things that have worked in the past if you have experience or ideas.

    We need to make a few decisions.

    #1. Sashing? If someone wants sashing on their quilt, do you mind if the sashing strips are included for each person to add with their row? It could increase mailing cost a bit, but I doubt much.

    #2. How do you want to handle labels?

    #3. How should the quilt owner convey their vision of the quilt to the group? I was thinking each owner could send along letter stating their theme and what that theme means to them. Any other suggestions or ideas?

    #4. Should rows be mailed early if finished early?

    #5. How do we feel about posting the tracking number for packages as they go out? They must be insured per the R/R rules; if you purchase the postage online through USPS, the tracking is included (i.e., free). If you mail via the post office (building, not website) I believe there is a charge to add tracking (I think less than $1.00).

    Hi everyone, very exiced about doing a row robin. This is my second one hope this goes better than the last one. I havent made a whole lot of quilts. I sew surgical hats for extra money to buy my fabric for my quilts, table runners. My theme is red white and black. In the row robin I was in one of the theme was red white and black and I loved the colors togeather. I am retired and on a fixes income. I reather not do sashing but if everyone else is ok with it I will do it. In the row robin I was in I made a lable for each row I made. #3 I think whatevery way the person would like to do it. #4 Yes I think rows should be mailed when finished. #5 I like the idea about posting the tracking number. Will we have a name for our row? I cant waite to get started but I have 88 and more to be delivered by Nov. 1 I think I will take a day off from my hats and make a couple of my blocks hehehe. Happy quilting everyone. Evelyn

    Nope - I'm in school 18 credit hours this semester and when I signed up, I thought my husband was going to be deployed from Aug until May - so I worked ahead to make room for the other (inevitable) projects that were on the horizon. And then my husband got bumped due to medical stuff, so now he's home stressing me out and getting in my way instead of over there stressing me out.
