    So if each row is 12.5", that does not necessarily mean we have to make that size of block correct? Let us say we want a house row quilt, not all houses are the 12.5" square. Or a star theme row quilt, then we could make them different sizes in the row and off set them and such correct?

    QuilterMomma, as long as the row is 12 ” by 60 ” then each block can be whatever you want. You could make one long "block" if you wanted. Hope that answers your question.

    Ya'll get your buddies in on this.....we need more folks!!

    Say I want my block to be 60.5 long, I could do Sue's & their houses if I wanted my two favorites in one spot?

    Exactly....as long as the overall size is 12.5 X 60.5 you are good. Other people could then make 5 block or whatever they wanted that matched your theme.

    Watching still, that first deadline will be a tough one for me, even though for self, because of my own UFO projects I am doing. Will see.

    I know we asked not to sew rows if we want to add a border, but what if we could send along the already cut borders in with our quilt so they can be added as it goes around the country/world? It would only be three extra strips in package. Would that work? Oh I know, being difficult but can't hurt to ask, this way the quilt is all together and can be viewed easier than strips hanging in a row.

    I have finished 3 of my 5 planned blocks for this first row. I'm hoping I can finish up the other 2 and get the row sewn together before Sunday night. School starts back up on Monday... (queue sound effects) dun dun dunnnnnn.

    You are busy TheMama, I would have you in two swaps if I signed up for this one. Hmmmm, not sure if I could handle that girl. You make me laugh to much and I would be on the floor rolling instead of sewing.

    Well, I could send you a few more F8's and you can pretend that you're just doing a few extra boom blocks... and keep 'em. I promise they'd coordinate.

    Each group will decide these things among the 5 assigned to the group. Some groups may decide not to sew the rows if their is sashing, while others may decide to do just what you are suggesting and send the sashing along with the rows. Hope that helps!

    Thanks Qbee. I'll start making a row. My theme is black, white and gray traditional blocks. I'm hoping my first row will be a faux cathedral window. We'll have to see how it goes!

    I know there has been some discussion about sashings on this thread. I love the idea of leaving the rows apart so sashing can be added or sending the sashing strips along, but will happily go along with whatever my group decides. I'm in this for the fun and friendship much more than the quilt. Whatever the quilt turns out too be will be beautiful in my eyes.

    I PM'd Qbee this morning, did you get my message? I'm on the fence between making a black/off-white or batiks, certainly won't have time to keep up with two groups so will have to decide which way to go. And I'm all for not sewing the rows together, as I'll probably want to add sashing and borders when it makes its way home again. I'm looking forward to this row robin, my first!
