    One lone very tall and narrow house finnished.It measures about 5 1/2 by 12 1/2 inches. I think I will make another unti with somethng esle and just sew that onto it and keep doing that till I have 60 inches, one row. I might then still add some applique so the seams and units do not stand out. I used a lot of muted Moda fabrics and whatever I had on hand.

    Right now I am busy ironing fabric that DH bought from another quilter and I washed. It is a little older but I overal like the quality and the patterns. Some of it will be great for the row blocks I am making for Village Square.

    My doggie had her weekly bath. The kids did most of their home work and the weekend is here. Life is good! Now if there are squishies in the mail today or tomorrow life is perfect. LOL

    Does anyone else get overwhelmed with all the possibilities, or is it just me? :-(

    Isn't that the fun of this is to encompass all the possibilities and then just create.

    I love that. Would be fun to add to. I have some wonderful homespuns that would keep the theme. So, you going to do some of those? At least we have a good idea of what we can do to add to the fun of your quilt.

    I would like to. My homes are different but I don't think that should matter. I think I will make one more home and then see.
    Kind of going by the seat of my pants but I am having fun. I hope to post a picture soon.

    Deb and Beth, I think it would be great if you added home and trees like that to my rows. I might not change my direction but I definitely think those cute houses and trees fit with it, buttons and all. I just want to be sure I am not to restrictive if I go that route. So I think I will stick with a slighly more general approach so other things can be included too like-

    My theme Country Village Square
    think- country colors, checks, stripes, small prints, calicoes, salt box homes, quilts on laundry lines, chickens, trees, pineapples, sheep, stars, hearts, patriotic, flag, baskets, vegetable gardens, sunflowers, traditional quilt blocks and crows.
    This has some ideas.

    And the home spun houses with button trees. Love the home spuns and buttons.

    It will also give Peggyzo and Babeyruth some insight also. This would be great to put on the note when your quilt goes traveling. Will be fun to see all the labels on our boxes when we keep using the same to send on.

    Also on packing our quilts, a friend of mine said she stuffs the quilt in the box in a bag, then she uses the vacuum to suck out the air and ties it shut and quickly seals the box. This way it is air tight, less chance of damage and you can fit a pretty big quilt in a little box. Anna, I am sure your DH will do a fine job packing up the quilts to be mailed. My friend said she ships to the Netherlands all the time for her customers and one time customs opened the box and POOF out popped the quilts and he could not get them back in. I bet that was so funny and he had to have been a bit embarrased not being able to pack it up again. The lady had to go to the customs office to pick it up because they could not close it.

    Cool Some pictures of Village Square homes

    I just finnished two homes and made two mini quilts to hang onto a laundry line. I am researching crows and flowers to fill the space above the two little quilts on the laundry lines. I took pictures of the little quilts but some how they were not on the camera. So next time.

    Cool More row house pictures

    Here are some more pictures with the mini quilts and laundry line idea. I am not sure of the layout yet but it gives you an idea. I also made a flag but no pole yet. It is going way to slow and I need to just lock down and start making it. I am wasting way too much time in the pkanning and research stage. Too much fun!

    Whigrose, I am itching to see everyones rows. I really like this swap, the size group, themes, the liberal time lines and the wonderful people. Thank you for your enthusiasm and encouragements. I can't wait to see what everyone adds to my row and I am looking forward to adding to your row.

    Those are awesome Anna. Love them. I have a book that has a bunch of little houses on them. I want to do a quilt shop for yours. THat would be cool, and maybe a couple other business for your row houses, does that work? If that is not something that would be an option, let me know.

    So glad you checked in peggiszo, good to know you are having fun on retreat. I know the one I went to in July, a longarm quilt retreat, was so much fun. Truly is good to get away and do what you love.

    Now for those photos, we are tapping our fingers and toes for them.

    Hello ladies! What has everyone been up to? I just made a tree and a church to add to my starter row. I also realized I have a whole extra month. For some reason I thought I had to have my row done and out by Nov. 1 instead of Dec. 12. Not that I am in danger of being done within the next week. It is good to find that extra month. Does anyone have pictures of what they are working on for the row robin? I need to start thinking Christmas presents.

    I am so guilty at not haven even started it. I have ideas running thru my head, but nothing on paper yet to see how it will look. Figure it will be next weeks project. I am trying to finish up the wall hanging swap so I can focus on this one. Glad I am not signing up for many the next couple of months because I want to do a good job on this swap.
