    Hi ladies,
    Wow, I am so excited to watch all the rows develop over the next several months.

    Please send me your contact information by PM. Include your full name, mailing address, email address and a phone number. Please, do NOT put your contact information on this board. Only send it to me and other swappers by PM- this is for your protection.

    If at any time, for any reason, you believe you will no longer be able to particpate, please let me know. Life happens, for the good and not-so- good, and we understand that. If you think you might hold up the group for some unseen reason, let us know and we will work out how to keep the rows moving and get back to you when timing is better. We have two months to complete each round.


    A few things to know:
    always send the row your make/complete to the person listed after you.

    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?

    Shall we declare our themes now? I'll start a new thread titled 'Themes'. Add your name and your theme.

    I do have some questions, since I have never one either a row or a round robin before. Do I need to name my theme, or is it "evident" from the first row that I send? I don't want to put too many restrictions on what others can do, send Sashing along? I don't think I can pick my Sashing style or fabric until I see all the rows. My general theme is the beauty of nature (including people) however anyone chooses to interpret that, whether stylistically in blocks like wild goose chase, scenery panels, or appliqué --or anything else--songbirds, big birds in flight, mountains, lakes, trees. Anything that includes those elements. Or how we have made nature yet more beautiful. With pretty barns, old outhouses, barns, and sheds. A field under plow, ready to harvest or being harvester. Water in any of it's forms--waterfalls, lakes, rivers, clouds, ice. Or water from a hand pump. Or a tap.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    CharlotteMarie, do you have a particular version of Sunbonnet Sue that you particularly like? And is there a pattern available for Sue's house or do we pick our own?

    Hi Krisb, Any Sue you want to do is fine. I haven't done my houses yet, but it is because I can't decide on one thing. I just love both things and want to incorporate them into a quilt. As far as any specifics, I want a light blue background. It can be tone on tone or just plain light blue fabric. I have seen lots of both patterns on this board and the only thing I don't want is wonky. Plain houses and plain sues I guess. Sue can be scrappy and houses can be scrappy. Just colorful is what I want. Does that make sense?

    Hi Krisb;
    No one is required to name their theme - it more or less is for the sake of fun and to get everyone excited and start conversations among the group members.

    I love how 'open-ended' you are about your possible theme. Makes me want to put my thinking cap on and start mulling over all the endless possibilities.

    Still trying to connect with a couple of group members who seems to be missing. :-( Let's keep our fingers crossed they show up soon.

    best,
    d

    Krisb, I did not make any reason for wanting blue fabric. It is outdoors, that's what I want. Sue doing something outdoors at her house. Gardening, checking mail, sunbathing, walking dog, etc.

    I am not sure what I am going to do. I have many ideas. I am thinking about doing a floral bouquet theme. Not sure yet. I have lots of ideas running around. I loved the row robin I did with snowmen a few years ago, so I am thinking I would like to do somthing along those lines... but for my daughter, so whimsical, silly, and fun flowers. My mom painted "Magdalena's Flower Garden" on her wall in her bedroom and all sorts of daisies and fun flowers, so I am thinking that following that theme would be a blast. However, I might decide on something else. I still need to finish up two round robin quilts before I start this row.

    Hey MistyMarie,
    Good to hear from you!

    We have time yet to work on our rows for sure and I'll be the first to step up and say I've changed my mind about my theme more times than there are days in a week. I'm pretty sure we aren't the only ones struggling with a theme.

    Well, I went out and bought the background fabric for my row today. Didn't get to work on it though. Still working on a customers quilts. Should have them completed by the end of the week if all goes well and I can start my rows.

    Maria's theme- Vibrant color with lots of movement with base fabric in Kaffe Fassett. I've only done one Kaffe quilt and it was a mysters. Had no idea how it would turn out but, I love it. It lives in my guest bedroom. Now I'd like one for me. I love pinks, reds, greens..... Don't particularly like matchy matchy so I integrate batiks with the Kaffe. I don't want to box anyone in on my rows... use your imagination and best judgement. I will love and treasure it.

    Ah, all is good for Group 6 - everyone has 'signed on' so to say.

    So, what have you all been up to? I have been playing with a little 18" x24" 12-block applique sampler a quilting friend, unknowingly and innocently, sent my way by way of a link to another project she was asking input on. Right, you've all been there, right? Please tell me you get railroaded once in a while; it will make me feel less uncommitted.

    Sooooo, I've been a bit distracted from working, or even thinking, about my row. And I need to pump out two blocks for my October partner over on the Quilting Bee Block of the Month swap. But no fear ladies, dh is off to camp for a few days and I plan on spending my time between tucking the gardens to bed for winter and the sewing room :-) Yes sa! :-) Fun for me. And time to commit to locking in what my theme for the Row by Row will be.

    This wouldn't be a problem you see if there just weren't so many options :-) ;-)

    best,

    Whigrose I'm with you. Need to do my Oct swap blocks, my Sept BOM PP block, sandwich, quilt and bind Princess Inas's castles. My row is just going to have to wait until after we relocate to Florida.

    Hi everyone,
    Anyone started their row yet? Thinking about starting your row? Anyone have photos yet they are willing to share with the group?

    Our line-up is:
    Whigrose
    Krisb
    Mistymarie
    Mhobbs
    Charlottemarie

    When the time comes to mail your first row you will be sending it to the person on the list that immediately follows your name. You may either PM that person or me for the mailing address.

    When you do send off your first row, please email both the person you are sending it to and myself to let us know.

    First rows are due in the mail by Saturday, December 1.

    Thanks everyone. Have fun.

    best,
    d
