    I've washed and pressed my fabrics, well all except one. It seems to be MIA, once I find it I can get started cutting and sewing.

Have a picture Of what I want to do in my head, just cannot even think about putting sissors to anything til my sisters visit is over. She comes in Wed night and will go back on Monday. I can't wait!!! To see her, and to know that I got so much done getting ready for her visit!

    Enjoy your visit with your sister, buslady. As far as progress, I cannot understand why I can pick out fabric at the store, I feel it and it looks okay and then I get home and it's a silky fabric! I have done this 3 or 4 times now and it just gets my goat! It is pretty, but it is not what I thought I was buying!! Darn!

    Use it for a purse, bag, or in a crazy quilt! I buy the oddest fabics you could imagine. I like to make bags and the material used can make a mundane bag into something very special! I bought some very silky oriental type fabric and have a bag cut out of it. Oh, the raveling I am dealing with. Of course I couldn't find my pinking sheers at the time. Some day I will finish that bag, cause it is going to be stupendous!! Depending on the quilt, you can still use that fabric. For instance, in this row robin, I would not mind at all if some different fabrics were used. For one thing, I will be using it as a wall hanging, not a bed cover so it won't be washed much, if at all. Keep that beautiful fabric, and use it!! It must have been meant for you if it used a desguise to get you to take it home. LOL

    Thanks buslady. I will keep that in mind my collection is growing, maybe I'll make something really great with it once the inspiration comes.

    Hello.... still haven't put anything on fabric yet, but I have two blocks designed so far. I'm working on doing "holiday kitties" -- in other words, using certain print fabrics with cat blocks. I have Halloween and Christmas, and just had one pop in for the 4th of July. So there's still valentines day, easter, New years, Thanksgiving, etc, etc.... am I being crazy or just pushing the envelope?? Don't worry, if you run out of holiday ideas! There's lots and lots of yummy fabrics out there that work without having a specific theme.... Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, batiks, homespun......

    Maybe I better get back to work now.

    MizMelly that sounds great! Holiday cats are cute! I have been really collecting patterns for my snowman quilt. I'm just about ready to make my first block. I got my background blocks cut. I'm really ready to go. That sounds great with the holidays.
    Buslady if you can make 6 quilts in a week, we won't have to worry about you! Is your row still a memorial type quilt to your Mom?
    Tam...Moo I just love cows and your avator is so cute!

    Yes, so far I have not changed my mind. I have lots of ideas, but have not put any of the to fabric, nor to paper. Want to write a letter about her to send with the quilt so you might be inspired by that, since you did not know her. Sometimes those are the people that can pick something out that those really close might have overlooked. I am looking forward to this, for sure. Next hurdle I have is the Annual Quilt retreat that I host. It is Nov 16-18. After that all I have are the holidays to worry about. Lets keep the chatting up, this is fun.

    We aren't a very chatty group. I hope that once we get going that changes! LOL I have one more hurdle, my quilt retreat, then things will settle down. That is next weekend. I am excited. Second annual and I want it to be as good as the first. Plan to take care of UFO's at the retreat, even though this row is still just in my head, it is on the top of the list for UFO finishing. Still going with the memory quilt. Talk later. Onalee

    I'm on track, I have a commission that is going to the machine quilter tomorrow morning, and I have nothing else on the horizon for my holiday weekend, so I'm going to hit the sewing room and start on blocks!! Mine is kitties, any style, any design, using fun and funky and holiday fabrics on a neutral background (the neutral backgrounds can also be any color). I'm looking for crazy and wild!! As I get blocks done, I'll post some pics. I'm hoping I get all 5 done this weekend, so I'll be ready to mail before the deadline!

    Wow the mailing date is coming up soon. Please clarify for me...once we receive the first row, we make a row to go with it. Are we going to sew the rows together or leave them separate? What are your thoughts on labels...I have not been in a row robin before.

    Tam...Moo correct me if I am wrong, but I believe we all decided to leave the rows separate and just baste together, we don't add any borders or sashing. As far as labels, make whatever kind you wish and the other girls will sign your label when they work on your row. Am I right girls? I don't think any of us has been in a row robin before so we are all learning as we go. Feel free to chime in everyone.

    I am posting a recap of what we had decided on for this robin:

    Copied from previous posting:

    I am going to go with the compilation of what I think we want for our group.

    1. Do not mail out a finished row until 1 to 2 weeks early. This creates pressure on the other members who may not be finished on the row they are working on.

    2. Mail a letter with your row, the first one we work on and be detailed. Tell us what you want in your row and be specific as you can be because we can't read each other's minds.

    3. You may show pictures of what you have completed and we must also be tactful if we don't like what we see. Your letter should prevent that from happening so I think this is a mute issue.

    4. Ask lots of questions about the other person's row you are working on. You can't make a good block if you don't know what to make.

    Please let me know if this meets your feelings. If not we can revise this. I don't write in stone, so chime in girls.

    Round Robin Hugs,

    Charlottemarie

    Sounds good to me! I think we also decided that if we wanted sashing, we could, but didn't have to include it in the mailing of your initial block.
