    Beautiful! I've known lots of people who restored and built cars but never anyone who did buggies. Interesting hobby.

    By the way, Roda, the list I got from Qbee didn't have your address on it. Eventually, I will need it because I'm sending rows to you. PM it when you get the chance.

    Hi all. Am I not getting any messages OR have there not been any? Is everyone working very hard and not sending messages? I know what I wanted to make but I can't seem to make it happen. This is my first RR and I don't want to let anyone down . I may have to change my theme... I can't wait to see what we all do..
    Happy Sewing all

    Our thread has been very quiet, Pat. I have my row finished -- just need sashing for it. As soon as I get some sashing, I will post a picture.

    I hope everyone is sewing away!

    Everyone has checked in at least once. I think most of us are working on our rows. We are still missing one address, but I'm sure it will show up in time. I'm anxious to get someone's row and get started!

    OK, I believe all four of you should have the address of the person you will sending rows to now. I still need a town from Roda. For some reason I have a PO Box and a state but no town.

    I hope everyone is working on their row or at least getting good ideas. There is still plenty of time on the deadline, but I'm getting excited. I hope someone posts a picture soon!

    Ok I will post a picture. I kept the theme i was thinking of using. Home(s) This is all I have done so far. I have never designed a block so its not great but it's mine and I am not worried that someone else wont like it. I hope to get better by the time I might have to do somones block.

    Great block, Pat. I've been thinking of ideas for "homes". I've got a few if no one steals them before your quilt gets to me.

    I like that block! When you are saying "homes", do you mean people homes? Or bird houses? Or does the inhabitant matter?

    So for themes I think we have

    Lisa - black, white, grey traditional blocks -- any style, any combo that fills up your row
    I love Sun Bonnet Sues, embroider (think redwork only grey or black maybe), Dresden plates of
    all sizes, pretty much every sampler block I've ever seen. I'm easy. In fact, I'm so easy I won't
    even know if it's not technically "traditonal". Stick to the colors, fill up the row and I'm a happy
    camper. Try out something you have been meaning to do.

    Pat - homes of any kind -- people, animal

    Roda -- "Yes, I'm a Diva!" in blacks, white and lavendar (My diva daughter has LOTS of ideas for this!)

    MamaHauser -- ??

    Jude -- maybe Asian but still thinking

    I have a row finished but needed to do practice blocks for another quilt so I'm doing them in my colors, too. If I like both rows, I'll pick one to send and save the other to add on the the quilt when it comes back home. It'll just be longer than originally planned.

    I was considering sending along a zip lock bag of scraps anyone could use to add to their fabric when they work on my row. You would in no way be obligated to use them, but if you just needed a little piece you wouldn't have to go shopping. What do you all think? It would make the box a bit heavier so if the group doesn't like the idea, I can skip it. Just want to make this as easy and fun as possible for everyone.

    GD explained it as high heel shoes, fancy purses, crowns or you can do blocks in black, white(she wants pure white) and purples. Her room is zebra print and lavender

    Roda, that's exactly my daughter's diva ideas, too. Sparkle of any kind. Slinky dresses. Some how zebra print is always included in the "diva" theme. Kids are funny creatures.

    You might think of it as all the things from a "princess" quilt for girls who are starting to think they are too old for the Disney princesses.

    My row is finished and ready to send. I have another row that will stay here at home and be added when the quilt comes home.

    Thanks, Qbee. I'm getting pretty excited to see what everyone else is doing, too.

    Oh Lisa it is beautiful! I have never done the half circle thing...it is great, very nice. I have washed my fabric yesterday and will start attempting my blocks today, they may be boring compared to yours but what fun this is. I will admit I am nervous about this but jumping in and doing something like this is good for me. Oh yeah I have looked everywhere and I don't have Pats address, did you get it? Are you sending the sashing along with your row? I was planning on using sashing and mailing it to all of you. I like your idea of adding another rod after the quilt comes home!

    Sorry about the Doyle posting, I must have hit something. Lisa maybe the envelopes would be good the first row but later as the rows come in go to the boxes. However, I will probably have sashing to go along so until I get my row done I won't know for sure. I think as long as the fabrics is protected any way would work for me but you folks with experience at this sort of stuff would know better! OK off to my studio, have fun quilting!

    I am sending sashing along with my row. I'm also considering sending along a few scraps that anyone can use if they just need a little bit of fabric for some block they want to make.

    I think my first row will go out to Roda in a flat rate envelope. It seems like it will fit OK. It may be wrinkled when it gets there, but I think it would be in the bigger box, too. I'm sure by the second row, we will have to go with boxes.

    My row is not all that hard to make. It's Eleanor Burns' method of the double wedding ring. There is a video on her website showing how to make it. These are practice blocks for a larger quilt I'm thinking of making.
