    What will you be using it for when it's completed....to hang on the wall?...to use? How much washing will it get?

    Yvonne, these are great!! So much detail--thank you for working on this with so much creativity! I like both the white and orange, but think I agree with your opinion. And I love the crab!

    Jane, this is the first time I've seen the entire row you made for mine. You did a wonderful job --love those blocks and colors--those in the middle look pretty complicated. Thanks for your work!

    Yvonne, after seeing all three rows, I like the orange, too. So use whichever you prefer.

    We're going back to the islands in May, and these pictures really make me want to start packing.

    I won't be hanging my quilt on the wall. No space.

    Sherry, package all wrapped and ready to go...will try to get it to the post office tomorrow before noon and, if so, it should be to you by Friday at the latest. Again, don't laugh at the packaging...my son picked up another new pizza box but it was kind of a challenge getting it in because it keeps getting bigger and bigger! HE, HE

    For some reason, I can't post pictures on this site. (maybe the pic was too big??) So I sent a picture of Marys' rows via email to the group.

    I pretty well knew what I was going to do for my row for you but after seeing all the applique that others have done, I'm not so sure. I'm not an applique-er (another new word?) so my row may be the only pieced row in your quilt. Gotta tell you, I'm a bit concerned. Any thoughts?? Suggestions??

    Would whoever has Yvonnes' rows (when you receive them in the mail, that is) please post a picture of her original row? I would appreciate it.

    Thanks,

    Jane

    Jane, I LOVE my row! I had to go looking for it. After Barbara replied I found it in my junk mail. It is perfect. I can't believe how beautiful everyone's work is. I have yours now, Jane. Just have to pick out which 30s fabrics to use. I have a couple of blocks in mind already.

    As for Yvonne's row, there is a picture on here. Not sure which page yet.

    Jane...the row you did for Mary is absolutely perfect!

    I feel really bad that my row has caused so much trouble for everyone. It wasn't intended to be that way. In the rules it said you could use pieced, paper pieced, appliqued blocks and so when that design popped out of my head the only way I could do it was to do my row was by applique. If you go back and follow the thread think you'll see that I said whatever you wanted to do was just fine as long as it was in the colors I mentioned and there were suggestions along the way as to making a row of 5 quilt block trees or houses, etc. which were free on the web and did say that I truly wanted this to be fun for everyone.. to relax...do what you're comfortable with and as far as I was concerned it wasn't a competition. This was my first Round Robin Row and I truly am sorry. Barbara, if you would rather have just quilt blocks in beachy colors I would be happy to redo yours.

    Yvonne

    Yvonne, I am so looking forward to whatever you do for mine. Your work is exquisite. I think we are all nervous about disappointing you. You are such a gracious person.

    I chose to follow your lead with your rows it was a stretch for me and that is the point for me. I totallt agree that a row of blocks in those colors would look great. That was my plan if mine didn't turn out

    I have started Barbara's and theyvare embroidered. My block sizes differed from Sherry and Barbara. That is part of the beauty of these. The individualality of the row.

    Thank you for your kind words Mary but I look at my work and think things like, "Oh, why did I do that", or " That curve doesn't look very round" or " Those posts aren't straight" or " That's just not the right shade"...never completely satisfied. I felt the same way you did about all of the rows I've done so far and will feel about the rows yet to be done...wanting not to disappoint. Still and all, it's been fun and I will do the best I can with your row. Looking forward to it!

    Do have a question...have a Baby Lock but does not have embroidery capabilities but have thought a time or two about trading it in for one that does. Does it take a lot of thread to do a design, say 4" x 4"? It seems like you would have to have a whole lot of colors and isn't the thread rather expensive?

    Yvonne, yours is not trouble--it's awesome! I think it's fun to try new things and learn more techniques. I've learned something on all 3 rows I've done. My seam ripper and I are very close friends. You are all such creative and inspiring ladies. I'm so much a newbie and I've just been hoping what I do will please each of you.

    I want my quilt to be fun to work on and fun to look at. And I absolutely love what I've seen--so carry on, Perfect 10's!

    Hey, I do not think anyone needs to apologize for the rows that are being done. They are all turning out just great. In fact, I think they are amazing and each one is so different and we are all learning and doing our best. I even learned some hand stitching on my own row. The first row robin that I was in, I had just finished taking a class on applique and put it on the first row that came my way. I know that what I have seen each person do, whether it has been piecing, applique, paper piecing or embroider, etc. shows each person's individuality. I can't do everything everyone else has done and I am not expecting any of us to be able to do it all. We are all either trying new things or sticking with things we are comfortable with. We are all doing a great job. We should be patting ourselves on our backs. So, keep up the great work!!!! The best part of all of this is that we are all contributing to each other's quilts and becoming good friends and hopefully we are enjoying the process and learning as we go. I am proud of each one of us. That is why we are "The perfect 10's". Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Boy, posting from my phone when I am in desperate need of sleep is probably not a good idea. I only slept two hours yesterday.

    I admit, I am a fretter. I worry about everything I do and whether it will please the intended recipient. That is not their fault. It is MINE! I think everyone is doing such gorgeous work and the individuality is part of the charm. I had never seen a row quilt until I signed up for this and now I have a million ideas. Mine may end up 10 feet long by the time I get it all together! I know that I am OCD. Part of why I didn't want my rows joined was because I wanted to put sashing and it will probably be some smaller blocks. But the other part is I want to hang this on the wall and I need it to be balanced for my odd little mind.

    I think we all project our own idiosyncracies onto others. The thing about projects like this is giving up control and going with the flow.

    These are all beautiful, ladies. Everyone should do what works for them. My friends and family love seeing them. I know that my skills are not equal to others in various areas. I just have to let go and hope that is part of the charm.

    Happy Stitchin', y'all! And, Yvonne, you do whatever you want to my row. A landscape instead of blocks is perfect. But blocks are wonderful, too. I am just amazed at everyone's work so far.

    Jane, I tried to make a copy and upload your picture and it wouldn't work for me, either. Don't know what the problem is. I love all the detail you put in. I am so touched that you and Barbara both made a Jacob's Ladder. It continues to astound me the level of work you all do. All of the ladies in my BOM class agreed that they couldn't send them on!

    Thank you all for your work.

    Mary

    You know, when these quilts are all completed I'll really miss you all. I chalk this up as one fantastic experience and I'm SO happy I jumped right in and tried it. Don't think it could ever be the same with another group of people because, human nature being what it is, would probably always be comparing it to you all and would be disappointed.

    No apologies necessary. It was more of a concern on my part. Certainly didn't mean to make you feel badly either. I'm looking forward to working on your quilt.

    Goodness Jane, it wasn't you. My row just came so easily to me and I never gave it a second thought that it might not be so easy for others. Just felt badly because it seemed like it was such a challenge for everyone and I just wanted everyone to have fun with the theme and do their own thing . The 1930's theme is easy for some but it was difficult for me because I'm usually just a 2 or 3 color gal and one of those colors is usually white and mixing different colored prints was a real challenge. But during the trial and error process I learned to love the 30's prints and blocks so I thank you. Really, I'm not hard to please. Whatever you decide to do I'll love it!

    Barbara, Yvonne's is on its way to you. I switched machines to put the rows together and add the sashing because I was having tension problems with the Babylock. All of the sudden I was having tension woes on the other machine. It was operator error! Having multiple machines means they all thread differently and I threaded this one wrong!

    It has been a rough week. I was on nights and done on Tuesday morning. About 1:30 they called and asked me to come back in that night. No sleep and probably not going to get any then but I tried forgoing all I had planned. Call at 5:00 to tell me I don't have to come.

    Wednesday get a call that my FIL is driving my MIL to the ER because they think she is having a heart attack. I say, "Why didn't they call me????" I live next door. Off to the hospital for the day. She did not have a heart attack but is in the hospital now until at least Saturday.

    I just am glad I got Yvonne's row mostly done last week. Yvonne, please feel free to add any detail you think it needs. My husband wanted a haymow and I wanted birds but I am just out of time and back to work tomorrow.

    You are all such talented women. It humbles me to work on your rows. Kind of sad I only receive one more.

    Mary

    I know what you mean, Mary! For all the tension of "trying to get it right" and all the sewing AND RIPPING and all the apprehension of, "will they like it or not," I will truly, truly miss it and all of you. I wanted a challenge and got it and in the process learned so much. Sorry for all your miseries this week and wish everything is okay with your MIL. I graduated from Miami Valley School of Nursing in 1958 as an R.N. so, believe me!!!!, I know whereof you speak!!!!!
