    Ooopss.....I forgot to give my theme. I am turning my son's old bedroom in to a room with a patriotic theme. My husband's father was a retired Lt. Colonel pilor in the Air Force and we have his burial flag as well as many framed medals that I want to put in the room. We also have my father's burial flag and medals. So basically the room will honor both of our fathers. I figure red, white and blue traditional and star blocks. What do ya'll think?

    Qbee, the idea for your room to honor your fathers is so heart warming. Reading it gave me goosebumps. I have an uncle who died in WW2, my father fought in WW2 and Korea, my husband was in the USAF for 7 years and our son was in the Army. I am very patriotic, and when I see someone in military uniform I tear up every time. I think you have a great idea for your quilt and I will be honored to add to it.

    That sounds beautiful, Qbee! I hope I can do justice to it.

    My theme is "Patriotic Civil War Sampler", made with civil war repro fabrics in deep reds, grayish-blues, off-whites, tans, etc. Below is a photo of my blocks (not sewn together yet). I'd like to add sashing and cornerstones between the blocks, and can include them when I mail it off. Will that be okay with everyone?

    Just to make sure I understand the mailing process, I'll be mailing to Babeyruth every time, correct? Sorry if that's a dumb question. This is my first Row Robin.
    Have a wonderful day! If you need to contact me, please use the e-mail address on my profile page. Sometimes I don't get notifications that I have a PM here. Please note that I'm usually unavailable on weekends, but I'll get back to you on Monday.

    Woohoo! Really looking forward to this!
    I like the idea of your patriotic quilts, I just hope that having a Brit contribute won't be a problem. We've been having red, white and blue everywhere this summer, first for the Queens diamond jubilee, and then the Olympics. It's been great.
    I still need to finalize my theme. Are we ok doing sashing or not? Also does anyone have thoughts on prewashing or not?

    OK....I stole this from one of the other leaders but it was SO well done....LOL

    Mailing dates are:
    1st Row – mail by Dec. 1st
    Row 2 – Feb. 1st
    Row 3 – April 1st
    Row 4 – June. 1st
    Row 5 – Aug. 1st


    A few things to think about:

    Correspondence - include with your starter row. This could be a piece paper, note card or anything you choose. Consider this your opportunity to express your preferences, such as colors, techniqes, and what not to do/use. Perhaps you prefer to join your rows when they come home to you - you would state that in your correspondence.

    Labels - Send along a label with your starter row for each person to sign. This can be as simple or fancy as you want.

    Sashings - Does anyone in the group have objections if any of the swappers wants to send along sashing to be used to join the rows together? It may affect the cost of shipping.

    Mailing the rows - What is the preference of the group - do we mail according to the dates, or do we want to mail the rows as soon as they are finished?

    What are we forgetting to address?
    Suggestions?
    Comments?

    Let's get this party started

    Hi All!

    Thank you Qbee for volunteering to run our group! I love playful names, for example One-der Bunch! Sort of a play on words.

    Anyways I guess my theme is for a modern look. Not necessarily a thing, but I hope you all love my row. My vote is for the rows not to be attached since I would like the option to put them in order when they come home. I am more than happy to sew on any sashing if someone provides one, but I will wait to add my own on later since the color schemes could affect what I want to use.

    I look forward to doing this and having fun!

    I'm happy to sash, not sash or sash on return, I don't mind. I'm still between a sashed theme and a non sashed theme though. Clearly not very decisive.

    I was going to try to post early since it takes about 10 days. I'd probably avoid posting too early though, unless the person you post to is almost ready for it.

    Should I have had an email with the address I send to? I haven't seen one :s

    I am also happy to sash or not sash, whatever the person wants. One-der Bunch sounds good to me!! I haven't decided about sashing mine yet.

    Since people seem to generally not mind sashing I'll go with the bookcase theme. I have the wood fabric ready!

    Once I decide on my sashing, I'll be ready to sew my blocks together. Just trying to clear a couple of things off my plate first.

    Does anyone have an example of what should be on the label?

    OK.....a couple of things. 1st I have one person who was suppose to be able to join us and it didn't work the way I thought so she is going to take my place in this group. I honestly was only doing 2 groups since we were short anyway so this works out best for everyone. Her screen name is Lori Peercy. So...here is group #1:

    Group 1
    Lori Peercy
    SazuBMidlands
    Moonrise
    Babeyruth
    Linda58

    Now....I will still monitor this group and act as leader even though I won't be doing a row. That just makes it easier.
    Lastly....it's time to get addresses. We will mail in the order of the group names so just to make sure everyone has the correct address, please PM the person you will be mailing to in order to get the address they want the rows mailed to. For example, Lori Peercy will need to get Sazu's address and Sazu needs to get Moon's address and so on and so on.
    Let me know if you have any questions,
    Thanks so much

    Happy to be here! I had a great time on the lasr one I did. The rows were 12 1/2"x 60 1/2" Is that correct for this one? Love the name One der bunch, is that the one everyone decided on? I am the hostess for the secret pal swap each month so I am on the board all the time. What are the themes that everyone has picked out? I really like the idea of sewing the rows together after they get home so you can place the rows where you want them and you can decide if you want sashing or not after you see them all together. I have not come up with a theme yet

    I'm wanting to sash for my bookcase themed quilt, but not sure about posting all the fabric. I might just post a swatch, and sash on return, to save postage as it goes. What do you think?

    I also haven't started sewing yet, but will need to soon. I didn't realise it was so close to the end of October already!

    I've been looking at my row today. I came to the conclusion that a 60" wide bookcase is VERY wide, and so I've decided to change my theme. I've been working out a new one today, so hopefully I can have it together soon. :-)

    Hows everyone else getting on?

    Cool My rows are ready.

    Hi Everyone,
    I took a pic of the 2 rows I finished, since I'm in this and another group. I haven't decided which one will go to which group. They are both kind of modern. One has lime-green, white, black and gray colors, the other Orange, lime and white, with a few blues thrown in for the mix. Hope you like the pic.

    They both contains black with white polka dots, so that will likely be my sashing when it comes home.
