    Okay everyone ... made my final decisions... YEAH! ... still using the same theme, "Neighborhood at Dusk", still using the same colors, gray, black, white, taupe, camel and any shades thereof but, I decided on a whimsical style quilt because I wanted it to be fun, using buildings and houses and my personal row will be one long row and yes, I will be doing some applique with a touch of embroidery. When you see it you'll see how 12" blocks or 6" blocks, stacked, or any combination of those or another straight row or whether your rows are patched or pieced, whatever, will all work perfectly ...think of a spread out neighborhood. Add to it in whatever quilt form you feel comfortable with.

    Sherry, I found this set of instructions here on the board.

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/tutoria...ng-t97681.html

    Is this the same thing?

    No additional login required!

    Yvonne, I have some ideas for yours but I will have to see your part to know if they are in line with what you want.

    I am pretty clear in my own mind what I want for mine. The key is to communicate it effectively. It will be fun to see what we end up with.

    Marlee is beautiful. Congratulations!

    To clarify: Please ID the blocks you make with a sticky note, address label or similar. Please pin them together so I know who made which blocks. I will send along a label for each of you to sign, etc. to go on the BACK of my quilt when it's finished. Does that help?

    Yvonne - I have some ideas running around in my head for your theme. Looking forward to seeing what you send!

    Marylane, I do not get the pictures from your attachment on my computer. However, I clicked on the blank areas and it looks like the same hanky. I will also send instructions of how to fold with my row.
    Yvonne, does your row have to be buildings? I thought of some other scenes that are in the neighborhood at dusk.

    Sounds just fine to me, Sherry. Good luck on your surgery tomorrow! Think how much better you'll feel ... well, maybe not immediately but, down the road!

    Everyone ........... I've "fifty eleven " other things going on right now but will figure out a way to post when I get further along. Will probably use my row as the center row but not fully clear to me at the moment.

    I have been in the hospital from Thurs. through Sat. with chest pain and tests. It sure was painful. My surgery is Fri. Thank you Yvonne. I will be glad when it is all over. I can't wait to see all of your pictures as you progress on your rows. Hugs, Sherry

    Thank you Jane. I found the neatest things for your row. In fact, to my surprise, I found blocks that were already made in 30's reproduction with white backgrounds. They are in yellows, orange, green and white. They are beautiful. Each block is different, but they all have the same material in them. So, I have your blocks all done. He! He! I hope you like them.

    I am getting excited about my hanky butterflies center, I am using hankies with lace and embroidery. I have picked out fabric for my background colors. I decided on the first 5 hankies I am going to use and have been folding them into different butterfly positions. I still have to wash the hankies and fabric. It is looking so delicate, I do not know how I am going to sew them down. I know I will need a thin thread and needle. After I get them ready, I will post pictures of them laid out and maybe you all can help me figure this out. I do know how to machine applique but I may have to hand stitch the center one. I am having trouble with the internet, so I may have to take my computer into the shop. So, I may not be on this board for awhile.

    Hey Sherry ... hope your surgery went as well as mine! This is first day post-op for me ... never had an ounce of pain, just a teeny bit of tenderness at the naval but not enough to keep me from bending or stooping. Oh, the marvels of modern day medicine !!!!!

    Yvonne, I am glad you did ok with your surgery. I was in the hospital 3 days. I came home Sun. and went back Wed. They thought I had a blood clot in my leg. It turned out to be an inflammed nerve. So, in the past 2 weeks, I have been in the hospital 3 times. I am better today.
    I just got my computer out of the shop today.
    I washed my fabric and the hankies and bought fine needles and matching thread. I am finishing my row for group 8. Then I will start on my butterflies. I am using hankies that are all embroidered. I laid them out and took pictures so I know how I want to place them. They are so pretty. I can't wait to get started on them. I will post pictures.

    How is everyone else's rows coming along? I sure hope everyone posts pictures as they progress.

    How is everyone doing? Are you working on your rows? No one has commented on this thread for awhile.

    Glad you're back to normal, Sherry! Yes, I'm working on my row. Yes, I'm aware of the deadline. Just not a chatty person.

    I only posted when things were due because someone asked. I have my butterflies attached to a block. I need to hand sew the lace on all of them. I will take pictures and post my progress. Then I will have to cut down the blocks and sew them together. I will need someone else to embroider the small heads and feelers, please. They are looking beautiful though.
