    You guys scared me. It's been a hard month for me to get my things done everything's got off track. Had a barn collapse do to snow lost my spotted colt and started calving. Closed today on another piece of land and straighted the sewing room. What do you think about these colors. The greens are lime green

    Oh gosh I am sorry to have stressed anyone out about getting your rows mailed out. Somehow I thought it was March first it had to be mailed out the I saw Pat mail hers out and I then assumed I was right and hurriedly finished and put mine in the mail! No need to stress Roda you have plenty of time. Roda I am so sorry about the spotted colt! What happened, was it the snow and cold? I thought that was such a beautiful colt. I guess living on a ranch you have had losses but it can ever be easy. This morning I was browsing the net and found some videos of koko the mountain gorilla. He is so awesome. He bonded with a kitten who later died and when koko.'s trainer used sign language to tell koko the kitten died. Koko signed back to her he was sad and was crying! Even telling you about this gets me all weepy eyed ! I have always loved animals. Any way I also wanted to add you ladies whose already worked on my Asian row have really pulled it off, I love how its turning out, thank you.

    What makes me the maddest is the colts death was probably my fault. These little colts are tiny he was about 15 pounds and I had moved them in to a smaller pen with a barn so they could stay warm and I had some heifers in there to and put out a round bale of hay for them to eat. I think baby got stepped on while sleeping in the hay

    Oh, Roda, how very sad. I knew your horses were little but didn't realize they are that little! Wow. Almost like a puppy.

    I love the colors of the fabric in the picture.

    This little mare is 28 inchs tall and the baby was about 14 inches tall. I have one that was born last year that still likes to sit on my lap and she weighs about 100 pounds. This top kind of made me go out of my normal peicing which is why I like doing this swap to learn new things. I hope I can do it justice

    I have to laugh at the thought of a 100 pound lap horse. I'll bet that looks pretty funny when she tries it!

    You are so right about this exchange forcing us outside our normal parameters. I really appreciate that part of it. I tend to get in a rut and go, so this is good for me.

    OMG Roda 28 " and 14" I can't believe how small they really are. I really thought the spotted one was large. Do you and your family raise them and show them or what? How many do you have? Do you have larger ones that pull the buggys? I agree with this row robin making us think outside of our own boxes! Fun though huh?

    I have 7 little ones and 6 bigger one and 2 mules. The grandkids ride the little ones and their broke to wagons. I have the mules because we use them for hunting and packing. The others are broke are being broke to ride and pull except for the big paint mare who was given to me because of problems with her leg

    Excellent, Kelly. The LQS is having a sale next week and I happen to know she has some cool Asian fabrics.

    The Asian rows are safely at my house. I really like what has been done to it so far. After seeing it, I'm thinking my original idea of appliqueing some Asian themed things really won't work. I think it would break up the more traditional blocks oddly. Now I'm thinking more traditional blocks in goregous prints. I have quite a few 2.5 inch squares of Asian prints I'd love to use. Time to play!

    HI Judy. Sorry I didn't let u know sooner. It did arrive on Monday. After sending mine out a month early I was surprised I got one that early too... I love your colors and rows.. I promise not to send this one a month early.
    Happy Sewing
    Pat

    I am zoom-zooming along on the Asian quilt. Three blocks down; two to go. It has 42 different prints in it, but I promise it doesn't look like a fabric store explosion.

    I saw some amazing koi fish fabric today in the remnant bin at my favorite LQS. I *almost* bought it and forwarded it to Lisa for whomever else still gets to work on the row. But then I saw the price tag and thought to myself, "No one needs $30 of koi fish fabric."

    Here are a few shots of Judy's quilt row. I couldn't get far enough to show the whole row at once and still show the fabric prints. I hope this is what she had in mind.

    Thanks Pat I am glad you got the rows. I also got confused about sending off the blocks so I sent out early as well! Don't know what happened but I will try not to do that on the next rows! Lisa your fabrics for the Asian rows are absolutely beautiful! I can't wait till I getto see it I person!

    I'm glad you are pleased, Judy. Asian prints were a totally new thing for me. I've never even really looked at them before you requested them. There really are some pretty ones out there.

    I've shipped off the row that is due April 1 and the Asian row to Roda since I already have it done. I thought it would save a bit of postage that way. They are in two bags and clearly marked so she will know which on to work on first.

    Can I get a mail-by date for this row I have now (the DIVA one)? I know everything got kind of shifted and confused and now I'm not quite sure what my time frame is. I bought fabrics and now I'm debating a block (or blocks) in my head.

    Row 4 is due June 1.

    I just mailed mine to Roda early along with Row 3 since the mix up meant I had it done and ready. You have TONS of time for the Diva quilt. Take your time, but also, feel free to send it on to me whenever you finish.
