    FQ Stash Queen -- Wow, you had a terrible year. I am so sorry for your losses. And your injuries. I hope that 2011 proves to be a great improvement over 2010.

    Our mailing order is: Me to FQ Stash Queen
    FQ Stash Queen to Qbee
    Qbee to TF Quilter
    TF Quilter to pamesue
    Pamesue to me

    Reminder of due dates: Row 1 -- Feb 15
    Row 2 -- April 15
    Row 3 -- June 15
    Row 4 -- Aug 15
    Row 5 -- Oct 15

    ---------------------------------------

    TF Quilter -- Your row is beautiful!!!! Are you sure you are in the right group -- like maybe you belong with the advanced group???? Wow -- I don't know how I can add to that. Where did you get your pattern? Are you looking for applique for the rest of the rows? I assume you want to maintain a Victorian "feel" to the rest of the quilt. I can't imagine mixing anything that beautiful with mod images are cartoon types. Would vintage Sunbonnet Sue qualify? Pamesue -- you have a tough act to follow. Can't wait to see what you do.

    Does the tone of brown or pink matter to you? Do you want everything light and/or muted rather than vivid? These are the kinds of questions I think we need to ask when we get ready to swap with the next person.
    My shades of pinks/browns are more muted, soft...not bright. But I will enjoy whichever shades you use.


    I think I will wait till I get everyones row before I start working on them. I would like to eyeball the fabrics because pictures do not ever do the object justice. Looking forward to seeing everyones blocks. I still have to do the lablels and the journal. My goal will be to mail to Nancy by feb 1.

    By the way FQ Stash Queen -- my soon-to-be SIL is a finance major from LSU (also MBA), recently attained his CPA, and is also employed by Price Waterhouse in Houston. Both my daughters live in Fall Creek, in Humble, just outside Houston on Beltway 8. Small world.

Between that a breaking my left wrist all the way through tripping at the carnival (just settled lawsuit), totalling my car and having my 3 day old $500 Android phone stolen, it's been a bit rough lately.

    I am 51 years old. I have one child, a 29 year old son who was married in April to a lovely, caring social worker named Erin. Two hours before the pix from their reception is when I was told my FIL had passed. My son, Brandon, is a TEXAS A&M graduate. So, I guess we have a major rivalry going in the group already. His major Christmas present was a pewter A&M door knocker with their last name engraved on it. His is a CPA/MBA and supervisor at Price Waterhouse in Houston. They just sold their townhouse (2 miles from downtown), and are planning to move to a gated community near The Woodlands (north Houston). Finally got a commitment that I would have grandchildren "within" 5 years.

    I heard some concern about the fact that I live on the road. Should not be a problem. My friend Rajean (HisPatchwork on the Board) sends my meds, etc. to me about twice a month. I'll send her a priority mail stamp and she'll get an address to send it out to me the day after receiving it, or if you would rather send it priority yourself, just let me know, and I'll give you the address where I'll be. Been doing this for years, and haven't had but one or two problems, and none with priority mail.

    I am terribly excited and this is not my first swap on the road. Somehow it all manages to fall into place.
    I am sorry about your MIL, FIL, and dad's deaths...you have had more than your share for sure...and hopefully this year will be better. I look forward to working on everyone's row in our group...this is exciting...I'm not sure what we have decided as far as a label etc...I guess I have to read back, but I am going to include a label for everyone to sign and a journal..I would like a picture of everyone (if possible in my journal too) so I can put a face with a name. Glad to be part of this group..

    What a fantastic way to think out of the box. Can't wait to see it. Already have two fabrics I want to use for yours. One of them, believe it or not, is by McCall's.

    The idea of adding a pic of each of us is fantastic. What a beautiful tribute to out group. If we each do a block for the back, as I believe someone suggested, we could have the pic put right on the fabric and then the info we decide we want included along with it. I would like to suggest that if we do that (a block for the back), that we include our quote from from the Board along with our Board name. I look forward to "meeting" each of you and working on your precious quilts. Sounds as if we all intend to keep them. I know I won't be able to part with mine, and given the level of skill in this group, expect mine to be your least favorite! :wink:

    My "kitchen" theme does not mean I expect spoons, mixers, toasters, etc. appliqued on it. I am simply using kitchen fabrics in the Debbie Mumm line. Feel free to applique onto it if you choose, but I am using different blocks with the fabrics in it. I would also like a border, and had intended to ask about it, so is there anyone who isn't doing one? What size are most of you doing? I was thinking 1-1/2" done.

    Are we going to agree to send everything priority with confirmation? Sorry, but I have a lot of trouble with the P.O. and that's the only way I seem to be guaranteed to get things. If it's a problem, I will enclose the postage for each person in with the original package and you can pass it on. Frankly, don't think it will cost a lot more than regular mail until we get to the last one or two. If you'd rather, I can just pay you back.

    Thanks for the dates and mailing order, but what are the themes to go with the mailing order? Kinda like to think ahead. Not plan, cuz it never quite works out that way, but have some idea of what is coming up next.

    Thankyou...Yes, I am sure I am in the right group & I do not consider myself "advanced"...the pattern came from a book called Bonnet Girls - Patterns from the Past by Helen R. Scott...I used a machine buttonhole stitch on the larger areas of skirts etc and embroidered the rest by hand.. vintage Sunbonnet Sue would work..there's also a book called Ladies of Leisure..Vintage Quilts..Linens and More by Suzanne McNeill..also, I could copy some of these various patterns & include these with my row if this would help..or you could do 3 pieced blks in 30's fabrics and 2 ladies/girls of some sort... cartoon types would not go..I do not want to make this difficult for anybody...I think a challenge is good, so let me know your thoughts okay...also on the back of this one book there are vintage patterns of women/girls..it is thru Design Originals..www.d-originals.com..#5202 Vintage Home; #5152 Vintage linens...just passing on info..

    Definitely send with receipt confirmation. I think we agreed to include a 12 1/2" extra block, using scraps from the blocks we used for our added row. Our name and date etc. should be somewhere on that one. Or maybe just our name and date. The 5th block we need to make a complete row across the back can be the "signature" block we all add our names to. I plan on sending that one along with my row. Think of it as a big quilt label. It doesn't necessarily need to be 12 1/2" square, but I want to fit it in between the 4 extra blocks. Clear as mud? I'll try to make an example of what I mean and post it later on. Let me know if y'all t hink this is too much work and I'm overdoing it. I just thought it would be fun to have unique backs.

    Oh yeah, don't forget the journal.

    We do fireworks not far from Humble twice a year. What is your almost SIL's name? I'll have to ask Brandon if he knows him, although in a company that big, kinda doubt it. My son is Brandon Bingham, he's been there 4 years and is in oil and gas audit. Another major rivalry here between A&M and LSU. Both of my Mom's neighbors in Montgomery, Tx (on the golf course) are LSU alumni and are always pulling pranks on her since she and my Daddy were diehard University of Michigan alumni. Even went to Rose Bowl in 2007.

    SIL's name is Jason Welch, and I think he's also in auditing. I'll have to ask him. He's only been there about 18 months or so. Geaux Tigers!

    Thanks for all the references, TF -- that helps a lot.
    ------------------------------------------

    Stash Queen: here is a quick recap of themes:

    Me: (slight change due to thinking too hard) bright solid stars on a black background. Full block size or combinations of smaller blocks for a scrappier look.

    FQ Stash Queen: brown/turq blue, kitchen theme (fabrics or motifs as theme)

    Qbee: Spring

    TF Quilter: ladies/girls (see her post on top of this page)

    Pamesue: pink and brown sampler blocks

    I need to understand this..we make an extra block using scraps from each row we do..ie I would make a blk using scraps from your row, pamesue's etc...and then the 5th blk would be the signature blk..is this right?

    TF -- Still up for discussion and opinions, but here is what I thought

    1. Original row w/your row attached (plus any sashing originator included)

    2. Journal with picture, if possible. (Can be printed out on regular printer paper if you don't have time or access to regular photo print)

    3. Extra "leftover" block for back with your screen name. Not necessarily with theme, but fabrics so you connect who did which row on front.

    4. Quilt label or signature block for swap title, screen name, real name, date, location

    Did I get that right? Do you all agree? If we all include a picture of us working on each row, the owner can use that to make her own collage for the back.

    Comments?
