    Update on each theme and sashing issue:
    Annaquilts: Country Village Square, no sashing and no joining rows
    Whigrose: Sewing room, no sashing and no joining rows with variable sizes on rows possible
    Babeyruth: My Sewing Room, no sashing and no joining rows
    Peggiszo: Lets go to the Beach, _________
    QuilterMomma: Safari/Jungle, sashing and can join rows.

    Now it seems I am the only one with sashing and joining rows, I can do it when I get it, but was cheating the process because assembly seems to be my slow point on things so thought I could pass the buck a little. But if you wish to not, that is fine as well.

    Also, please include a LABEL with your quilt package. That would be great for all of us to sign it as we finish each row. Now that may seem silly when the rows won't be joined, but could always label the dates of mailing or something like that. You decide on your label. Thought was a great idea.

    Mailing will happen when we are all ready to send on and no later than deadlines. since I have not even started mine, I am already behind. No pressure for anyone. When my canning and garden work are done, will have a bit more time to work on this. I have it on my list of to dos for October. Customer quilts first.

    I love all the themes and will gladly sew rows together and add sashing for you Beth. Anyone make labels and want to make me one for this swap and trade me for something for it? My labels are just a piece of fabric, often a heart, that I write on and then set with an iron.

    I can do an embroidery label for you if you want. I will snap shot it and then post so you can see. Give me a few though. So excited about this, but have to be patient to wait because I really need to stick to my plan for the rest of September to accomplish what needs done first. After I am done sewing on bindings, I can put the embroidery machine on and then do that while hand stitching or longarming. Yep, us women on the multitask thing.

    If anyone else or all of you want me to do the labels, we can decide together and I can stitch them all up at once and mail them out. Just let me know. That is for Lucky 7 group or the Hevenly Seven and I would add Stars (barring no other name offered). Which name would you ladies like?

    Well if you are sure. I know you are busy. No rush. We have plenty of time. Let me know what I can trade with. I like the Heavenly Seven or lucky Seven, either way.

    Oh girl, no trade, my treat. I think what I may do is put down the date, the person who is to do that row by then their name and do a line so you may sign it that way.

    Working away, ah, er, um, scratch that, playing with fabric. Just stitched forty miles of flying geese together that I might use in my row. Next up - see if I can't find a couple or three blocks to piece together. I really have no idea where this row is going in terms of compostition. Just flying by the seat of my pants and fabrics that appeal to me.

    QM- you know I won't have any issues at all playing with sashing for you. So, send the puppies along and enough about it ;-)

    Anna, have you started your row yet? Any pics?

    Maybe I'll take a couple of pics tomorrow just to show what's been happening here. And feedback is appreciated.

    best,

    hey Whigrose, while cleaning up the office, my mind went wandering and you could do a machine applique with the machine stitching up a block or a crazy quilt or something like that. Or I can add that to your quilt when it comes around. Thought that sounded cool. Now there are spool blocks and you could add lines of colored theread around it, or use blank sashing between your blocks and applique little wooden spools of thread around and hand embroidery pins and needles as well. just the outlining stitches, Not sure where you were going with yours, but those would be nice.
    Maybe Babeyruth would like some of those ideas as well, she is doing her sewing room theme as well.

    Back to cleaning office. Got tired of paperwork now for some physical.

    Too funny. Yesterday I actually pulled a couple pieces of fabric out with the idea of a mini quilt being 'stitched' on one of the applique machines.

    Great minds....

    No nothing happenng here yet. I have too many ideas and then I can't lock in. I am putting it aside for a moment and focussing on a CW side swap I am doing.

    Also remember that puppy some one was going to send me but I never got? Well I found one myself, a 4 1/2 lb 6 month old little girl. She is settling in an learning how to run my household.

    Pictures won't post right now but here is a link to a post on the board with pictures of Nina. Scroll down about mid way.

    Under Nina's pictures is also a picture of my quilt buddies that use the treadle machines at the house.

    I am trying to decide between applique and piecing. I do have the fabrics standing out and a stack of possible ideas/patterns. I want to get this going soon.

    Since I know you love to paper piece, wouldn't that be a starting place and then you can add on sky and lawn then do the applique as well? Just a thought if that helps for ideas.

    Annaquilts,
    Why do you have to decide between the two techniques? Can't you do both, or don't you like blending them?

    I am actually considering adding some applique (sewing-related items) to my pieced blocks. I am totally struggling with 'What am I going to do with my row?". I keep seeing pieced blocks I like but I'm one of those that second, third and sixteen times guesses myself. There are just so many possiblities, right? Right! :-)

    best,
    d

    There are lots of possibilities Whigrose, that is the fun of it all, but alas, we do have to make those decisions and go with it. On those pieced blocks you see, is there a way to make them smaller and then do all of them? This way you don't have to decide on just one or two, you can have nine or 18 for that matter.

    That sounds good, rest is a must for all of us. I am personally trying to get some but so much to do with canning and of course trying to get quilting done along with family issues that I have not got to focus on this one yet. While driving to and from work, I am mulling ideas of how I want this to go. I am kind of leaning towards making the blocks smaller then putting a border around the blocks then having the sashing row to divide the rows up. This way, I could have different sizes of blocks. I am thinking from the safari block swap, I got some pretty blocks from that that I could incorporate into this row robin quilt by adding a pieced border on the blocks. Could be fun, have to lay it out and see how it could come together. I would be with Whigrose and have hundres of flying gees or HSTs running around.

    Something is happening in village square

    I like the idea of different size blocks Beth. It adds visual interest. I finaly got to making something. I say something because I started following a pattern and now I am add libbing. My 15 yr old DD, a quilter too, says she likes it. I think it will be a pieced and appliqued combo like quiltermomma suggested. I might also just have houses and other things running across the row instead of neatly staying inside the 12 inch block.
    Sofar it does not look perfect or straight but I have no one to please but myself, right?

    Yep, you go girl. Show a progress photo or just an idea of what you are doing. Would be fun to watch the row grow.

    Hi Girls, It doesn't matter with me what we call ourselves Group 7 is fine. I would like to keep the Dec. 1 mail out and to stay on schedule so there is no pressure if one sends out early and then are to many months in between for others waiting. It's already going to be Oct 1 soon so that is only a month.
    My theme is going to be a beach theme. I will include in my mailing what I would like and the colors I chose. I have been in other row robins and it's nice to have all the info in the packet instead of finding it on the website.
    Everyone has some great ideas for their rows and can't wait to get started.

    Thanks Quilter Momma. Yes I am busy with working and all. I am going on a 3 day retreat Oct 4 and plan on getting all my ducks in a row for our row robin. I've been looking at patterns and colors. Could we please have everyone put their directions for their row robin in the packet. I don't want to rely on the website for directions and worry I will miss something and make a mistake. Easier on paper for me! He he he! Thanks!

    i believe it is a consenses on that topic of notes to go with row robins. Whigrose also suggested the same thing which I confirm is a great idea.
