    Judy - your blocks are really pretty! I can't wait to see your finished row!

    Amanda - thanks for the idea! I think I definitely want to preserve everyone's original "signature." I just like the look of an embroidered label. I guess I've got a little time to figure it out.

    Regarding our name, the only things I can think of are really corny, like using the word "Prime" since 11 is a prime number. "USQA Prime" (US "Quilters" Assn) Or, since we don't have an international component to our group, using the word "Domestic." "Domestic Divas" (don't really like that). The number 11 just isn't speaking to me! :lol: The best suggestion may be the one Judy sent us in the email!

    One more baby blanket to quilt tonight, and then I get to start piecing together all those little scraps I cut out for my row! I can't wait!

We have a variety of themes in our group and they should keep all of us on our toes and excited each time we get a new quilt to work on.

    Our themes are:
    Judy G: Something Southwestern
    Boop56: Anything in Purples, Blues and Creams
    Obsessed: Mardi Gras (Purple, Green and Gold)
    Kehoeta: Jewels
    AmandaB: Garden/Spring (flowers, birds & butterflies)

    We need a name – Hopefully, one of you will have a brilliant idea as I really don’t at this time.

    Please be sure to post pictures here and on the Original site before you mail your row. Now it’s time to get busy and start making beautiful rows.
    I think it should be something llike desert surprise. Kinda like all the colors of a desert sunset with wild flowers scattered around. I sure hope the blockes I make you are okkay. Yours looke beautiful so far.

    Okay, ladies, we need to figure out a name for our group. Are we going to go with "Making Friends Row by Row" or do one of you have another suggestion?

    Making Friends Row by Row is definitely better than anything I can think of! I have name-block. I vote for your suggestion Judy!

    I don't have any ideas on this one. Your suggestions sounds good to me. :)

    What about 5:11 Quilters? Referring to: Thessalonians 5:11

    “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”

    I'm actually OK with the other suggestion. I just thought we could try and get the 11 in there somewhere. 11 is a hard one to do anything with.

    Eleven **is** really tough! I've just spent a good part of my lunch hour surfing the web looking up synonyms and rhyming words, puns - anything! I have zero clever ideas. Eleven rhymes with seven and heaven - there are eleven members of a football team (even though there are only 5 of us) - "Team 11: Passing rows and scoring friends"?

    This is what we're doing, isn't it - encouraging one another - and there are 5 of us. I like this as well as "Making Friends Row by Row" - because I hope that is what we are doing as well! I'd be happy with either name.

    Boop - Never in a million years would I want this activity to bring you pain. If 5:11 is a bad reference for you - lets not do it.

    Lets' go with "Making Friends Row by Row" for our group name.

    I cut all my pieces out last night ans will be sewing this weekend. I'm so excited and happy to be finally working on this project. I'll post my pictures Tuesday probably because my PC up north doesn't have the software for my camera.

    Everyone have a HAPPY, HAPPY New Year!!! Lets have fun in 2011.

    So do we have a name? I am in agreement!

    Kehoeta, please do post some pictures - I'm dying to see what everyone else has planned for us! :wink: I am going to start piecing my row together this weekend too. Hopefully I'll have some pictures to share soon as well.

    Have a very happy new year everyone! Happy sewing! :-D :-D
