    Finished row 1a today and it will be off to Marie tomorrow. Oddly, my row is going to Raleigh and my swap block this month is going to Cary--and both would have a much shorter journey if we were back in NC.

    Tomorrow, starting on Deb's row. And hooray for me, the flooring in the condo is done.

    I have Charlottemarie's SBS all fused and ready to applique.

    Krisb, when I get these sewn down, may I send them on to you or do you prefer I hang on to them until the due date of 2/1? No extra pressure for you to do them, just moving them down the line.

    Deb,

    Go ahead and send them early if you want to them to move on down the road. I am ready for them any time. Anything to keep from doing more pp units for my dizzy geese quilt.

    Hi Kris,
    I send them in tomorrow's mail (Monday). Please let me know when you receive them.

    PP? as in paper pieceing? I love paper pieceing. It's slow and uses fabric, but I love doing. Just finished a New York Beauty top. Waiting to get the quilting done on it.

    best,

    Yep--paper piecing. When I read the pattern and it said "sew with a very scant 1/4" seam allowance" on only some of the units and then easing those units into the centers, paper piecing seemed like much less annoyance. And I have tons of scraps, so I am just using any shape and trimming later. Somehow it seems OK to trim off and throw away a piece of fabric when just tossing it would have seemed wasteful LOL.

    Hey ladies,
    How is everyone doing? Are you on schedule with your row?

    Remember, the next mailing date is February 1.

    Please check in occasionally and give a progress update - photos highly appreciated, too.

    Just a reminder ladies that the due date for mailing the rows onto the next person is February 1. If you need to adjust that date for any reason please let the person you are to mail your rows onto know when they can expect to receive them - and remember to also let me know.

    Anyone up to posting progress photos?

    Best,

    Maria and Whigrose, I received Kris' blocks today. They are beautiful! I have been down for a couple of days, an antibiotic backfired and affected my tendons in my legs, I almost literally cannot walk it is so painful. Anyway that is why the late maildate on Group 3. All for this group is done and went out on the 1st of Feb.

    Charlottemarie,
    Thanks so much for letting us know about the rows.

    Take care of yourself first and foremost.

    Hi all,
    just popping in to say that I received Mhobbs rows today from Charlottemarie and they look like they will be a blast to work on.

    Anyone else have an update? Photos?

    Hey ladies,
    How we doing? Anyone want to check in with the group? Krisb, Mhobbs, or Charlottemarie? Everyone busy sewing. Shoveling? ;-)

    Can I just complain for a just minute here?

    So, I find the PP pattern I want to use, pull the fabrics, cut them and stack them into piles for each of the five blocks.

    Commence sewing - This is going great! Or so I thought. When I place the block segments into a block formation, things aren't lining up. What? Huh? Ugh.

    Human- check everything again - your copy of the pattern, follow the pattern - opps, turns out I wasn't doing section 6 right. Start next two segments. Still, not fitting together the way it should. Now I could almost understand this if I was a junior paper-piecer, but I have done more than a few quilts with the pp method.

    I have decided not to become frustrated and waste my time. I'm ditching the whole thing and moving on to Plan B.

    Grumble~

    Just letting you know that I am still here and actually slightly ahead of schedule on Row 3. Want it out before we go home on March 27. These SB Sue blocks are fun and am trying out a new applique method.

    I've just finished MHobbs row and am ready to ship anytime. Krisb has asked me to hold off until she gets settled back home around the first of April. (Personally, I wouldn't mind if we all finished early. May and June tend to be very busy months for folks.

    How do you folks feel about finishing early? Would your schedule allow for it? No pressure, just asking in the event others might be thinking the same thing. I only have Krisb's row to work on then I'm done with this Group's commitment. The other group I belong is also ahead of schedule.

    I spoke with MHobbs the other day and she is on track.

    Maria, do you want to see pictures of all your rows to date, or do you wan to be surprised.

    I would like to see any photos of my rows to date if Krisb or MHobbs has any.

    thanks ladies,
    best,

    I can do charlottemarie's rows to date before I mail them on, but Deb, sorry, didn't take pics of yours before they were mailed. Will take pics tomorrow when the sun is out--like the quality of photography on my phone and iPad is so good that good light really makes any difference. Charlottemarie, let me know if you don't want to see and it will remain secret. Marie, the SB Sues will be flying your way shortly.

    I could be done early if everyone wants to. Will be in Gatlinburg playing bridge one week in April, but that's only one week.
