    That is perfect Nancy. The "extra/left over" block that we will all use on the back can be whatever you want right?? I mean 12 1/2 " but they can put pic if they want or screen name or whatever but like you said, try to include some fabric from the row we used so we can tell who did what. And then a "label" that can be any size and will say like:
    "Quilting to Know You"
    ROW ROBIN 2011
    "Spring"

    1.Gail D "Qbee"
    2.
    3.

    So excited! :D

    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.

    TFquilter:
    Eeek.....OK...I'm starting to get REALLY nervous here. I mean your block is just so stunning...seriously! I started quilting in July and I don't have an embroidery machine :( But...I thought about your row all night last night and came up with a couple of ideas while soaking in the tub! LOL...I do my best thinking there! I need you to PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tell me HONESTLY if you don't like any of them 'cause I am still thinking!! They are all applique ideas.
    1st idea - I thought about doing the "present" for your ladies past and present in silhouettes. For example, I was thinking of say doing a little girl silhouette, not in black but solid to match background, like say if it is a pink/burgandy floral background the little girl would be burgandy. Here is an example of what I mean by silhouette:
    http://karenswhimsy.com/girl-silhouette.shtm
    Then one block could be a teen with more "hip" background fabric. And have them age or something like that.
    2nd idea - Was to do a row of dresses along the same line with the "aging" process. Like the first little dress would be a baby girl dress, then the next would be a little girl, then teen, the wedding or something like that. These would be more "present" looking as well.
    3rd idea - Just ladies "stuff" like a dress shoe in one block, a evening gown in one block, a hat in one block, etc. Or say a whole row of hats that span the years from say, bonnets to 20s style to now kind of thing...that might be hard...hmm.
    OK...that's all I have but I can think of others if you don't like any of these. If you like all, which do you like best?? Also, I was thinking of the "present" ladies the whole time....if you want to keep it all victorian, I can rethink them with that theme too. I want you to LOVE your row so please feel totally free to tell me your thoughts!

    Sorry but one more question...I am trying to get my "Row Robin Area" put together with my notes, etc. Will I ALWAYS send to TF Quilter? Like I'll send my own row to her 1st round and then I'll send FQ Stash Queen's row with my row added to her the 2nd round, etc. Is that correct??

    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.

    Hey FQ Stash Queen:
    I have a couple of questions :D I noticed that you have your theme colors as brown/blue/green but we had it brown/turquoise?? Is it 3 colors like brown, blue and green or 2 colors brown and blue/green (ie: turquoise)?? Also, I was doing a search on the Debbie Mumm fabrics but duh....there are several...LOL!! Not sure what I was thinking there...too excited I guess! Could you post pic of fabric or give us a link to the fabric you are talking about? Thanks so much!!

    Quote Originally Posted by FQ Stash Queen

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.

    What is "bubble jet"?
    Bubble Jet is fluid used to treat your fabric so that your signature is permanent. I always did embroidery labels, but have done a few that have been printed off the computer or hand written and then they have washed away. so by using the bubble jet and bubble jet rinse the writing is permanent.

    Is someone going to print or have printed the labels for each of the quilts so that they will all match? I think that's a great idea, and I don't mind pitching in to pay for it.

    What exactly are we putting in the journal and what's up with the picture? Is it for us, or one for each of us?

    Nancy, I am concerned about your theme. If you want all the stars on black, are you going to provide the black fabric or do you want all different shades and patterns of black? Since I am blessed with getting it first, help me out here. Also, do you want stars are solid colors, or are batiks, etc. ok? And do you want brights, neons, lights, paisleys (just kidding, but you know what I mean)? And if I get this first and you aren't doing the black, does that mean black on black is ok? Need a little refining on this one.

    FQ Stash Queen -- don't be concerned. I'm going to send a strip of colored sashing to put between each row so the blacks won't really touch each other. Black solid, black mottle, black on black -- all ok as long as it "reads" black. At first I was thinking of using batiks, but lately the ones I've seen are softer tones. I'm looking for bright -- solids, neons; I want it to glow out from the black background. Besides, batiks are getting so darn expensive... If I find the patterns I'm looking for, I'll post a picture of kinda-sorta what I'm aiming towards. It won't be difficult, and probably the easiest row to do.

    This is going to be for me.

    I guess the journal entries would include who was working on the row, time of year, description of geographic location, maybe some small talk about what's going on at the time (eg. holiday prep, kids, grandkids, major events). Small talk, rambling thoughts, anecdotes, recipes, etc. In your case maybe where you happen to be at the time. Picture would be us working on each of the other quilts so four separate pix and then maybe a pic of each of us with our completed quilt. That way we have a face to put with each row in the journals.

    I believe the consensus was that each of us would take care of our own quilt label.

    Am I right on this, everybody????? I don't want to be a dictator -- I want everybody happy and everybody to get what they want.

    Stars are your idea of easy? Now I know I'm in the wrong place. LOL. I already ordered some beautiful black on black and some bright batik/balis which I hope are what you are looking for. Do you have favorite colors?

    Nancy, if you don't mind, could you please post a list of the order of the themes so we can "think ahead"? I can't for the life of me find my original PM. Know we have a pink/brown and a ladies/girls, which I don't quite get. Is that all of them? Thanks

    Hopefully this will help. It's all in the thread but spread out over the pages...LOL! :D

    You will be mailing to me each time. First you'll mail your own row, then you'll get, add a row and send me the following in this order:

    Nancy in Louisiana - She has the bright solid stars on a black background. Full block size or combinations of smaller blocks for a scrappier look.

    Pamesue - pink and brown sampler blocks; there is a picture of her finish row on page 2 of this thread:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-85982-2.htm

    TF Quilter - ladies/girls of past & present; there is a picture of her finished row on page 3 and she has answered a bunch of questions about it so just read after her picture and you can see where we all asked all kinds of stuff: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-88719-1.htm (scroll down about half way down page)

    Qbee - My theme is "SPRING". Think girly...LOL. I love it all....tend to prefer brights but with Spring I think pastels and brights will actually be pretty together. I'm picturing flowers, bee, butterflys, ladies in bonnets (hint for TF..LOL!), watering cans, dogwood trees, anything "Spring" :D

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

    Hopefully this will help. It's all in the thread but spread out over the pages...LOL! :D

    You will be mailing to me each time. First you'll mail your own row, then you'll get, add a row and send me the following in this order:

    Nancy in Louisiana - She has the bright solid stars on a black background. Full block size or combinations of smaller blocks for a scrappier look.

    Pamesue - pink and brown sampler blocks; there is a picture of her finish row on page 2 of this thread:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-85982-2.htm

    TF Quilter - ladies/girls of past & present; there is a picture of her finished row on page 3 and she has answered a bunch of questions about it so just read after her picture and you can see where we all asked all kinds of stuff: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-88719-1.htm (scroll down about half way down page)

    Qbee - My theme is "SPRING". Think girly...LOL. I love it all....tend to prefer brights but with Spring I think pastels and brights will actually be pretty together. I'm picturing flowers, bee, butterflys, ladies in bonnets (hint for TF..LOL!), watering cans, dogwood trees, anything "Spring" :D

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

    I hope this helps!! I'm SOOOO excited :D
    Thanks for doing this..oh, and there will be bonnet girl/s in your Spring row...

    :thumbup:

    Y'all are getting way too high tech on these labels --- sounds like a lot of work (lol).

    OK , now that everything is as clear as mud (well, maybe mud where the silt has settled and the top is somewhat clear). As far as my star blocks go, I'm just aiming towards bright mottled or solids (no dots, checks, flowers, stripes, paisleys, etc) on a mostly black background. Batiks are fine, and black-on-blacks are fine (where did you find them?). I suppose I'll start working on my blocks tonite since my DQ is done and I'm still waiting to hear confirmation from my "Qltg in the New Year" buddy. It's COLD here (not supposed to be), and I'm oh so ready to just curl up with my Kindle in my bed.
