    Hi Ladies

    Sorry for stealing Dragonfly Nana away from you, but VERY thankful she was willing to switch groups with me. The other group was GREAT all very nice ladies, but my sister, who I share a house with, also was in that group...to save ourselves tears, sweat & bloodshed, we stopped quilting with each other several years ago Being in the same group and one after the other was not a good combination. Poor QBee, what a great Swap leader for getting me moved so quickly. Completely my fault for not thinking to tell her we couldn't be in the same group!

    I'm good with leaving rows unattached to added sashing between each row

    My original theme was blue roses...but I'm considering a change. I'll let you know if my shopping trip next week changes the theme or not!

    Thanks again for having me!!

    Here I am!! Greetings my new found round row robin ghoul friends! This is my first round rowing' hee hee and can't wait to get started. I like the idea of adding sashing when it comes home. I'm always afraid of asking/expecting too much.

    Now for mee theme.....I am doing a scrap/leftover/sample/practice block type of quilt. I would like everyone to use those blocks/pieces you kept but often asked yourself why and then answered yourself that you just couldn't bear to toss it out. The theme is no theme LOL. Just dig out those blocks/practice pieces and create something 12 1/2 x 60 that can be attached. Doesn't hv to be pieced blocks it can be a piece of machine or hand embroidery etc. please do not stress out whether it will match etc. This will be a TRUE SCRAP quilt Made from all those precious pieces we just couldn't throw out but had no use for them.

    That's mee theme and I'm sticking to it LOL

    Shana - Welcome to the group! We are more than happy to have you.

    Scrapper - I love your theme. I will have to see what I have in my bin (the block graveyard!).

    Ladies - I do think that right before we get ready to mail our rows we should do a final post with instructions about sashing, not attaching, or whatever special needs are. I will then cut and paste all of the info into 1 PM so you can keep it separate and handy for future reference. How does that sound?

    Just finished a baby quilt today and need to do a couple of table runners and then I will figure out my theme. Batiks is running through my mind as well as holidays. Or maybe months - a block to symbolize each month with 2 - 3 months in each row. Have to think more on that.

    Sew Happy!

    Since so many of us already have completed 1st rows are will soon are we going to ship when we are ready or wait until the 'due' date? For me the piecing is the easier step and tends to go very quickly, it's the actual quilting process that I'm slow at lol

    Cuppy, Your quilt is right up my alley too! lol I do large breed dog rescue I have 11 dogs at my house at this moment. Crossing my fingers it doesn't become 12...but I think there is a boston terror headed my way today, but she is suppose to be short term ONLY. lol While my rescue is suppose to focus on large & giant breeds right now I've got everything from a 15lb. Jack Russell-Chihuahua mix to a 110 lb. Great Pyrenees-Mastiff mix Looking forward to working on your quilt lol have so many ideas!!

    I am happy everyone will enjoy doing a row with dog theme. My starter row is a bit simple but will begin the theme of the quilt.

    Scrapper, I can just go ahead and work on your row... I have plenty of orphan blocks! I think I will like your scrappy quilt.
    I should have my fabric I ordered any day and thenn I will complete my row.

    Ok Ladies..........where are we........where's our leader

    Do we have a theme for everyone in our group? Shouldn't we be communicating about something? LOL

    If you insist I can communicate :P lol I'm still wibble-wobbling a bit...my original theme is blue roses, but I'm thinking about expanding it to be "Blue Flowers" lol I've seen some BEAUTIFUL stuff lately that makes me want to expand...what do ya'll think, is blue flowers easier for you than blue roses?
