    A little peek of my addition for Peggizo. I think the colors are a bit more muted in this pic than in real.

    Those are perfect whigrose. I was thinking of those also but those rows fill up fast so I am glad you are adding them. Very pretty!

    Well ladies, you are playing with the village idiot here :-(

    Got pretty cranked up late yesterday afternoon trying to get a few of the blocks stitched for Peggizo's row before going dancing. Started one block, got just about 1/2 through and realized I was doing the pattern wrong. Tossed that one aside; no big deal.

    Started the next two blocks. Ooooh, so pretty :-) Trimmed them both up and went to show them to dh and it hits me.

    Wait for it.

    I found the pp pattern on-line and popped it into Publisher bringing it to the size I wanted. Got all ten of them traced out onto my super thin - chiropractor-gave-to-me-roll-of-table-face-paper- paper. That takes a spot of time.

    Cut out all my fabric pieces. Successfully stitched two blocks together, trimmed them out, stepped back to admire them and then slapped my head.

    When I put the pattern into Publisher, apparently I was one sandwich short of a picnic. In my mind because I made the pattern X" plus 1/2", I had allotted for the seam allowance to join all the blocks. And when did I realize the error of my ways? Yes. Right. As I was trimming the second of the two completed blocks and as my rotary cutter passed over the seam of a point and not 1/4" away.

    Today, I get to play with more paper and pencil :-( Fortunately I can still use the remaining cut fabric pieces.

    Lesson learned.

    Dancing was fun:-) But how did I end up with laryngitis today?

    best,

    Unhappy

    Oh no wighrose! Bleh I hate when that hapenes. I faithfully cut 5 WOW 2 1/2 inch strips into 2 1/2 inch blocks for an entire quilt top only to find out they needed to be 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 in. We need more chocolate and sweet red wine I think.2 You should have seen my face. I kept on checking the pattern to see where in the world I was using all those 2 1/2 inch squares. No where ofcourse.

    Peeking in from groups 8 and 10. All the rows look great. Keep up the great jobs. Come over and take a peek at our rows. Everyone has such different rows. Isn't this fun?

    Red face Pics! For Annaquilts and Whigrose

    Hi Ladies,

    First of all this is fun and makes you think outside your own box on what someone else may like or want. I won't feel bad if you feel the need to just use certain blocks or add to what I made. I want you to love your rows and make it your own when all is said and done!

    The colors are much more beautiful than in the pic. I did not attach my rows so that you can decide where it will go best in the end.

    Whigrose, my patterns was spools, which I thought would be great for achoring the sewing theme, but after posting I now see it could look like fishes! I did put a large flying geese at each end to complete the length, and pick up your pattern above, but I think it gave it a fish look! I do remeber that this row length was 50" vie 60" so ladies make sure you measure your blocks before starting since it may come out short or too long!

    I spy my rows. I love it. Everything fits right in the house on the hill, the star block, the barn and it is fun how both you and whigrose decided to repeat the funky tree. Is that an out house on the right. How fitting! The bee hives are adorable. Thank you babruth!

    baberuth the colors of your spools are spot on. I did not see the fish but it took me a moment to see the spools. On the picture the black pops but it is definitely spools.

    So do both those rows go to Peggizo? Just curious because I have no rows to work on. Of course, I have lots of other projects going. I think I may start on Annaquilts row and Whigrose's so that way I can get them drafted so when the rows come in I can get busy fast.

    Beautiful work Babeyruth.

    Glad to see the photos also. Be ready Peggy, they are coming your way. Yep, you can send them together or one at a time, doesn't matter. Now that babeyruth gave some photos, I can work from there. I have some time to ponder the ideas. Oh so many for annaquilts, a few for Whigrose. I know I have the colors for both.

    To date, I have received and completed two rows, QM and Annaquilts. I have a Peggizo's here, too - that was due to me on the April 1st mailing, so that puts me on track.

    Should Peggizo have mine and be mailing to you QM? I'm thinking maybe because some of the rows were finished early and mailed on, that may be throwing you off a bit. You'll get one soon, I'm sure. In the meantime, sit back, relax and work on some of your UFO's :-)

    Think I've changed horses on Peggizo's row. Can't get away from applique to save my soul. I hope to have them tied up pretty soon.

    It wouldn't work for either of the rows I have here to be sent to you QM because one of them is your row and the other is the beach row and you've worked on that.

    My goal is to mail both row on Friday to Babeyruth but I'll confirm with her and QM when they do go out.

    Two months seems like a long time to have these row to work on- I"m just saying :-)

    best,

    i know, hold on to my horses. See what happens when i don't do other swaps. LOL

    I have plenty to do. And as for those UFOS, remember, I have several done and so not that many are laying around. I did see yesterday when i was longarm quilting, that I have seven of my own to get quilted. That is a shocker. I need to get on those then and finish them up. I did sew on the borders of two scrap quilts (one a mystery quilt) so they are ready to be quilted. I think i am going to try my hand at baptist fans with my Circle Lord, that ought to keep me entertained for some time.

    Hmmmm yes and no. I am good with the one I have right now. I am waiting on a pattern book Beth is sending on to help me with the row I have here. These next 2 1/2 months will be busier then Christmas for me so I am good. Sorry I am a slow poke I guess.

    You no slow poke, that row is due June 1, so you are on time. Some of us are overachievers and we love to get them done. We get so excited and can't put it down till done. I was slow in mailing a couple rows so as you said Anna, it is good and bad.

    I am very happy how everyone is working with each other and giving feed back and input. I am really enjoying this swap. It is the first of such I have done. Has anyone done a round robin before? What is your thought on that versus a row robin? It always seemed a bit more intimidating to me then a row robin. I am not sure why.

    I have done a round robin. It is nearly the same. What my group did is we made a formula of six rounds, then you made a 12" block for the center. From there we turned the box over and the next person added a round like a 3" border, then we turned on point and did a log cabin type of border, then we had to put a zinger on and do a 6" applique border, then we did a zinger and then did another 6" border. If I think about it, will dig mine out a post a photo. they new I liked to quilt so I have some open space on mine. Now the one I showed that is orange and is Shekenah's, that was part of a round robin but I added two more borders to it to make it large enough for Shekenah's bed. That is one I did to help instruct with the class. One spot we all learned is that we need to learn how to measure the diagonal. The log cabin round made it hard for some of us to do. Had to fix it a couple of times. They turned out really nice.

    Sounds great! Can't wait to see the pictures. Thanks for sharing your experience. I always struggle with the diagonal too.

    Row by Row vs Round Robin is basically the same idea, only ending up in a different shape -rows vs square or rectangle.

    And Anna, with your skills, you have nothing to be concerned about. Jump in there if there is a row robin going on that looks good to you - or form your own Row Robin group off line of QB. ;-) just saying...

    Phew, it's been a very productive day on this part of the east coast. I have all but one block left to make for Peggiszo's row, then a bit of appliqueing to do.

    Just don't know how I am going to take a photo of the rows- the thing is a monster.

    Hi all,
    I had to fight the urge to set this row differently from the rest. Peggiszo asked for all blocks and these are what I came up with.

    None of the appliqueing is yet done, and the second of the nine patch/pp block isn't quite finished -3/4. I will be embroidering legs for the birds.

    I'm not sure if I will be adding applique pieces to the two nine patch/pp blocks or not - it would be an opportunity to add a spot of color . I want to see what the tops looks when I have all the blocks laid out. I feel this top needs a place for the eyes to rest and maybe leaving the two side blocks plain, without applique, may help with that.

    I'll post all the rows together when I complete mine.

    best,
    d

    Beautiful! I really like the piecing and applique. The combo of both in one block is very nice.

    I love those birds. Great idea to put the applique on pieced blocks. I may borrow that one for the future.
