    Judy - your row is great! I love how it looks all together. I have some really great ideas for your quilt top... I can't wait to get my hands on it!

    (Maybe I should worry about finishing my own first... :oops: )

    Thanks, gals, I am glad everyone likes it. I am so looking forward to seeing what gets done with it.

    Now I'm ready to see what you all are coming up with so I can get my mind in gear towards doing rows. But it is hard to try to plan ahead because other than the quilt I'll get when we send them out, they change so much by each row that's added and what you think might work good now, won't. But it's fun to think about them.

    Feb. 15 seems a long way off. Hope I don't lose it in the mess that's my sewing room before then.

    Thanks for making it 'Making freinds row by row.' I joined the board to make freinds and am really excited. I was just at a New Years Eve party and my neighbor told me you had a pic of your row up. I convinced her to join and we share a lot back and forth. Peggy

    I'm also posting a picture of my label. I haven't actually printed it on fabric yet, but unless something spectacular strikes me (which I doubt), this is what it will be. Not too Southwestern, but I like the colors and think it's pretty.

    Regarding labels, have you looked at the free labels on Connecting Threads? That's where this one came from. They have some cute ones.
    Thanks for the info and your row is fantastic. I hope I make you proud.

    I should have something to post by tonight. I started sewing my row this weekend when I needed a break from the table runner I was making for my mom's birthday. The table runner is done, and I plan to really work on my row today and tomorrow when the kids are napping/sleeping. So far I've made one 6.5 inch block... only 19 more to go!

The blocks with the pots is included to introduce lots of colors into the quilt so you have lots to work with when you are working on it. My intention for this quilt is that it be what are considered Southwestern colors (seems to be most anything if you look at that pot block) or blocks with Southwestern names. I just want everyone to have fun when they're working on it.
    I am peeking from group 3. What beautiful blocks.

    I know. I am so excited and I thought we had to have it out by Jan. 15th until the neighbor came down and corrected me. LOL

    Ok, here is block 1 for my first row. Just finished it a little while ago. I am doing a duplicate block like this that will finish the row and then applique in the middle of the row. That is the plan anyway! :-)

    Take care of yourself and get well. You have lots of time to get the blocks done. I have been hearing about a lot of people who have really been sick lately, so behave yourself and get well.

    Was going through my stash and have some fabric pulled. I am getting blocks picked so I will be ready soon to start. I did a doll quilt today. Thanks amanda d for posting a pick of your block. Now I know which way to go for you. {I hope.}

    Ooohh! Those mardi gras fabrics look great!

    I was hoping to have something to post today, but I didn't get as much done as I planned - hopefully once we are all back to our post-holiday routine, I will be able to crank this out in the first part of January.

    OK, I finally have a block to share. This is one of my "pastel" blocks. I also have brights to play with. What I'm not sure about is whether to break up the spiderweb pattern with a block of applique. I found some coloring book pages of mardi gras masks that I could use to make some applique... Still trying to decide that.

    Anyway, the idea behind my row is to just use the fun mardi gras colors in fun patterns - blocks could be music/jazz themed, beads themed, mask themed, etc. or simply pretty blocks in the mardi gras colors. I'm looking forward to everyone's ideas! I hope that helps to give you all an idea of what to expect. More blocks coming soon!

    If you go to the pictures - you can see my WIP. Not for the row robin - but one I was trying to finish.
