    Ooops....I forgot to give my theme. My husband and I just got a travel trailer that we are LOVING. We take it to the lake to camp as often as we possibly can and desperately need a quilt for our queen bed in the trailer
    The colors in the trailer are browns, creams, bronze and black. Here is a picture of the colors.

    Hooray, I was in a swap with Quiltermomma and WandaLou, if you don't know them already, trust me, they are both VERY talented ladies!

    I am excited, haven't settled on my theme yet, I'm thinking about my row consisting of blocks representing places I've lived (my father and ex were both in the Navy, so I've traveled --- a LOT!) Then have everyone add blocks representing where they have lived or visited or dreamed of going to see - so when it's done, it'll represent a lot of different places ... and sending a journal along with the blocks so that everyone can tell me the names of the blocks they chose and what they represent. I think it would be like a flying carpet of sorts. And since I want to sash it when I get all the rows back, I'd ask everyone to baste their blocks together and also baste to the previous row, so nothing gets lost but I can easily finish it without overworking Jack the Ripper - I think my sashing will be based on what everyone does, I'm not ready to commit to a color yet, I want everyone to let their imagination fly on this one.

    As for our group's name, what about a riff on Ocean's Eleven? I'll have to think on that tonight and come back tomorrow.

    Would anyone in this group be willing to switch into another group? It's a long story but I need to make one switch.

    Howdy Groupies! LOL until we have a new official name. This is my first triple R and I can't wait for the fun to begin. I love the ideas of camping (we hv an RV we just love) and places visited (like a postcard theme)- those should be fun!

    For me, I like the idea of adding the sashing when it comes home - so I guess the strips wouldn't have to be attached to each other just pinned together so they don't get lost in the shuffle.

    Drum roll........here's me theme: Home Sweet Home. My section would be the one with the words Home Sweet Home. Each subsequent section would reflect a season: spring summer autumn winter. The only quirk would be that the last person would have to do whatever season is left - no choice unless they coordinate w the others and they arrange amongst themselves if they prefer a specific season. Wow that was a long-winded explanation LOL

    I can't advise a color theme yet as I am still in the design mode but would include a note w it when it starts it's journey. Since this is my first time as a GROUPIE LOL, guess I'll be posting questions etc as they pop into my head.
    Please bear with me

    Wandalou how about Row Ragers (LOL)

    I can go out there once in awhile.

    I am thinking for this row robin to do a crazy quilt theme. There would be no need for sashing and each row can build upon the next. This will bust some of your ladies stash of scraps, and help you use all those wonderful stitches your machines have or do some fun handwork with buttons, ribbons, beads, or whatever you have in your stash. I would like to use just muslin foundation. Nothing fancy or that real ugly fabric you do not want to keep around that you would not mind covering up. The fun part is that it should not cost you anything except using up stash.

    I do say, adding a note to what you have for your theme and what you are doing is a great idea and this way we all could add in as we go so we get some well versed row robins. I will be adding in my note.

    You may embelish all you want. I do not know how to do quilt as you go so I will put under the machine and quilt it. But by all means, embellish away when you get it.

    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
