    Well yes thank you, my quilt did win. I was so disappointed in the prize that I was in shock all afternoon. Not good. I'm afraid I'm going to have to complain to the RxR organizers because they don't seem to know what they are supposed to do at that shop. But I'm happy to be done and win. I left the quilt there to go on display because I feel it deserved to. I hope others enjoy it all summer and become inspired to make one too.

    Now I want some patterns from last year to do a 'water quilt', since I didn't participate last year. Anybody have any to share?

    Sorry your prize wasn't what you expected, SBG..here we have 25 solid FQ'S waiting to be claimed...I can send you the water lily pattern from my LQS from last year...pm me your email address

    I fail at making biscuits...maybe with your recipe I won't... thanks Nina.

    We didn't get the expected storms as predicted....wish the extreme heat advisory tomorrow would be the same, but think that prediction is going to prove true....

    I pulled out a UFO to finish...a cow that was tail less...she now has a tail, grass under her feet, and 2 rows of pinwheels above her head...so now she needs some features...eyes etc...I want this done before DS#2 and family come in 2 weeks as it's for DGD...she's the first to call us Gma and Gpa Cow...

    I am still packing. I so want to sew tonight but am just way too tired. I have a table runner calling my name & it is even cut out already. Sigh.

    I received license plates from QNS today since hubby went to the post office. With things that go on we don't go every day, and out in the boonies. The license plates are so pretty. Thank you so much dear QNS.

    I also received a license plate from Givio, and it also is so so pretty. Thank you so much dear Givio. I am getting ready to mail your scraps out.

    I was going to post pictures tonight of these, but I had one more to take and batteries have to be replaced so I will post the pics tomorrow.

    SBG, congratulations on winning on your row by row quilt. It sure deserves it. I am sorry to hear they did not have the appropriate prize for the winner. I haven't been to these things as all of you, but I can appreciate hearing of everything as I am learning more of how many of these things work.

    While watching the convention works going on, I have been hand sewing on blocks for another quilt we need for our bed. I take after my grand father who always watched those type things. I watch both sides. I remember how he always stopped his work outside after he retired to watch the nightly news. That is when it was a daily certain amount of time for it, unlike today where it runs 24/7. He also watched every minute I think of when the Watergate trials were going on. He just liked to keep informed I guess. I find myself doing that now, so it's his fault. hehe....

    Have a great weekend girls.

    Nina, I think group A is fine for the 4 patch and with group B I choose the the red. Brown would make the 4 patch too drab for me..The red is a better balance IMHO.

    Either one would do but I like the red. I think it's more interesting and lively than the brown. What pretty Fall fabrics!

    The license plates are so much fun. I didn't use all mine in my quilt, so I can put them on bags later or perhaps another quilt. I've gotten comments on the "YinzHome?" from folks who have been in the Pittsburg area... and I love "SewMeMoQuilts", plus it's red. And we have Missouri Star's plate, thanks to QNS, our traveling row by rower. They are all fun. I want to get one from Bay City TX that says, "Quilt'n Psychos". That describes me! Will call and see if I can order it.

    So I thought you might want to see the pictures they took at the quilt shop where I brought my RxR in. They finally posted them on the Mississippi Row by Row FB page, but postage stamp size!

    Thanks everyone for the advice on the squares. I will take a picture tomorrow and show all what I did. And you are welcome to suggest slashing color and cornerstones. Pattern is simple and it will work with any kind of fabric. I am constructing this for a BIL that helps his brother, Jerry out when he needs any extra hand in keeping up with the yard, etc. from time to time. I have failed to finish his embroidery jeans quilt, in a speedy manor so making this for him until I can finish the embroidery work on the jeans quilt.

    sewbizgirl,

    Your quilt is spectacular. Especially love the chickens, flag and bird on a branch with flowers. You did an awesome job.

    Your finished quilt is beautiful SBG . Each row is so pretty. You did nice work on all the detail as others have said, and such nice placement of everything.

    With the loss of sight interfering with the finish of the trellis quilt, I finally finished the top border over the pillows. It is about 98 inches wide, and l06 long....DS is six foot four inches, so it had to be long. Whe, that is done, DONE.Name:  DSCN0613.JPG

Size:  140.0 KBIt will go together fast, that's what I like about it. Corner stones...or not. It will be a scrappy quilt with fall colors.

    A good feeling to get it finished isn't it, QNS? Very pretty...

    We just finished with a deluge of rain...and could get more this afternoon...spent long time in office yesterday organizing and getting rid of outdated stuff...good feeling to lighten up...seriously don't think I need to keep financial info from high school days of #2 and #3 DS now in their mid 30's....thinking of Bev when she was shredding stuff earlier this year...I will light a match...

    Just saw your start...looking good so far.....

    Love the colors of your quilt QNS. Beautiful! Hot here yesterday, in the 90's. That is hot for us here along the CA coast. We are going camping on Monday for four days, so nice to get away! Am anxious for our monthly RV club outings to start in September.

    Beautiful trellis, QNS! I love all those purples and greens.

    Second quilt is looking good too. I think I would like it with cornerstones, myself.

    We are supposed to get bunches of rain here too. Like, for days... I just hope it cools the weather off and lessens the humidity. It's dangerously hot outside.
