    Jane, it's fine with me to leave the blocks unsewn.

    Hey, I belong to the CRAFT club, too!

    As long as we're asking for slight adjustments, would it be okay with the group if I ask that you NOT sew your blocks together? I know this is a ROW robin. I would really prefer to set all the blocks ON POINT and cannot do so if the blocks are sewn into a row. It would also allow me more 'creative latitude'. Heck! I might even add alternate setting blocks. It just depends on how all the blocks 'play' together. What does everyone think? As Sherry said, I will abide by the groups' decision.

    Yvonne - - - I found a pattern that I think will go well with your idea. At least, I certainly hope so! I'm anxious to see your blocks!

    Jane
    I'm doing a single row, Jane, as I see it in my mind's eye at the moment ... 12 1/2" x 60" but I may get another brain storm within the next 3 months before I have to send it on. But, either way, blocks will work perfectly well because it will just continue on with the "Neighborhood at Dusk" theme....It will just look like a ... duh! neighborhood! I mean we all live on different streets, do different things, see different things, have different interests,etc. So, just enjoy yourself with it. Okay?

    Oh, yes, I forgot to answer your question ... no, I don't mind in the least if you want your blocks to be separate as opposed to joined. 'On point" sounds cool! I know you said any color would be fine as long as it was a 30's print. Is there any quilt block you absolutely do not like or do we have carte blanche?

    I think Jane means not to sew her blocks together for her top only. Yvonne, I found some nea pictures for the neighborhood. I hope it does not have to be buildings. I do landscape oil paintings and I saw some beach and mountain scenes and people scenes, I would like to try. Of course, I have never done a landscape quilt or row or block for that matter. LOL. But I can invision them at dusk. I hope I can pull this off. This will definitely be a challenge. It sounds like you want some applique in your quilt.

    Jane you sound like you might want 25 blocks going through the mail. Are you attaching the blocks in your row? Will it be hard for us to figure out what goes with what?

    I can do whatever anyone else wants. I have no preconceived notion of how things "should be".

    I am still debating my own.

    Jane, I am doing a BOM in 30s stuff right now. I have lots of ideas (and scraps!). Are there any blocks you don't like? I am not a fan of Sun Bonnet Sue, my self and am getting tired of baskets.

    Barbara, I am all set for yours. It will be the easiest for me because I am stealing ideas from myself that I had for my sister for several years.

    Wonnie, I am still a bit at a loss about yours. It will work for me once I see something. I know what colors you want and that will require some shopping (darn the luck!) but don't have any idea what to do yet.

    You are all so far ahead of me. I need a baby quilt for my first grandson in 2 1/2 weeks and just decided on the pattern yesterday. I have had the fabric for a while.

    I don't remember what I posted but I am now really leaning toward My Sewing Room with an emphasis on vintage things. I know someone on another post was doing beautiful appliques of her sewing machines. I don't have THAT talent but there are so many fabrics available now. I think blocks made with SOME sewing type fabrics would be fun. What does everyone think of that idea? Any thing sewing related - not just quilting - would be fine but I want to stick with more traditional look.

    Okay, just throwing out thoughts as they form. Someone stop me!!!

    Sewing room sounds great. I think the hardest one will be the neighborhood at dusk. It boggles my mind. I will have to wait and see what Yvonne sends me.

    Mary, hello! Vintage sounds cool ... by traditional do you mean well known quilt blocks with vintage items incorporated? You've got 3 months to decide for sure so if you feel you need to change your mind later that's fine with me. For myself, I think it is nearly impossible to figure out what to do on others rows until I see what's already been done. No, you're not behind "everybody" because if I'm included in the "everybody" I haven't even started yet! Right now I think I want to do a long row as opposed to blocks but, who knows ... when I get my "inspiration" I may end up with blocks!!!

    I lean toward 30s repro and Civil War prints. So, I am talking more about colors and prints. I don't want bright orange swirls or pink polka dots on black. I don't want people to feel obligated to go buy a bunch of fabric. So, I was thinking that if you had some sewing related item some where in a block that would be adequate. I am probably going to do the center and do some sort of single block/scene type. If someone else wants to do something similar that is great or not is fine.

    I have several sewing machines and I may use my embroidery machine for some of it.

    This line of fabric has some nice pieces I like. My LQS has some of them and I may use some of it as a base or even as a sashing.

    I love traditional blocks and would be fine with rows of those in colors that coordinate with what I finally settle upon.

    Just going with my thought process here but I am pretty sure I am going to stick with this one!

    Thanks for letting me play!

    Mary, are there some colors you want - or don't want? Or do you want to wait until you settle on a theme?

    I am leaning more toward blues, aquas, reds, green & some yellows. I don't want orange, pink, purple, etc... I am going to see if the LQS has the red tape measure fabric and maybe use that as sashing.

    Yes, Sherry, my batch of blocks will be 'floating around' amongst the group not sewn together. I just ask that each of you ID your blocks somehow. Maybe pin them together??? Yeah, I know. I'm a rebel.

    I'm not a huge fan of Sunbonnet Sue (or Sam, for that matter) either. Anything pieced (please, no embroidery) blocks will be great.

    MaryLane - your theme sounds great. I have ideas swirling around in my head already!

    Sherry - I could PM you the pattern/idea I have in mind for Yvonnes' theme. I wouldn't want to spoil the surprise - - -

    I need to clarify! I just re-read one of my posts & no wonder Sherry is confused. So sorry. I prefer that MY BLOCKS not be sewn together. Of course I will sew the blocks I make for each of you into rows, unless you want something else. My apologies for the confusion - - - -

    Jane,I read somewhere where another group had a member who was going to scatter her blocks around the quilt and, if I remember correctly, someone in the group suggested she put her initials on each of her blocks. They could be quite small and then still use a label on the back so that everyone knew which blocks were hers ... just a thought....

    How about a sticky note or similar?? Unless you want to initial on the back, in the seam allowance? Not a lot of room . . . .
    I agree that we all need to include some sort of label for us all to sign as we pass our packages along. Also a notebook as Sherry mentioned.

    Jane........Okay, set me straight ! ... this is my first time on a Round Robin and I guess my vision of what you all meant by labeling isn't the same as everyone else. I thought that the label each person made was to go on the backing when completed to indicate who did what row as opposed to a large label with everyone's info on it ... obviously wrong ... correct? If we label it on the inside of our individual blocks no one will know who did what unless the quilt is ripped apart down the road. WHAT am I'm missing ? .... obviously something very simple (it always is!) ... Hel-l-l-lpppp!

    signed: Frazzled!

    Wonnie, I understood the same you did but since someone(?) wants her blocks left loose I think they may be talking about labeling them so we know which are hers and others. But...I could be all wet. I often am.

    mimim, that is one gorgeous child. Congratulations to all of you.

    Very pretty baby. I think JC wants to know which blocks came from who, just because she does not want her blocks attached and she wants to know which blocks go together. You are right, the names will not show up if you put them on the back of the blocks you make. Just put an address label on the back of the blocks you make for JC. Does this help?
    Yvonne, there are several ways you can do a label for the back. You can send one bigger label for everyone to sign, date and put which row they worked on. You can also add your name, date, and the row you worked on.
    Another way is to send 4 smaller labels with your info on all 4 labels for the other members to keep and put on the back of each of their quilts.

    Since my name is first after Sherry's I assume I am getting her quilt blocks first. I was just looking on eBay for hankies. I found some that are new from HongKong.

    Are these okay or are you wanting strictly vintage?

    Thanks,

    Mary
