    Anna, thanks so much for being willing to take on what will most definately be a challenge. I am really looking forward to picking up the pace now that I hit on something that really excites me.

    Best,

    I can help out working in the sewing machine if the other two gals, peggy and babeyruth do not wish to.

    LOVE IT WHIGROSE!!!! Love it when inspiration finally hits us literally. It is looking good. Love the variety. I think that is the part that appeals to me the most.

    I think I have something I can live with now for my starter row. Mind you, none of the components are sewn together yet because I have to applique the three little sampler blocks so it all looks quite ragged. Today didn't see much time in my sewing room because dh and I were busy with winter preparations outside but tomorrow dh is helping our neighbor again and I anticipate being able to complete this row once and for all. Yea me.

    Let me know if you think I should consider changing anything around or doing something different.

    Hi whigrose!
    I love those gorgeous colors..really beautiful. If I had to move something around, I would consider flipping the second line of flying geese to point towards the center, then it will lead the eyes back to the inside of your quilt and the beautiful sewing machine featured!
    Looking forward to working on it!

    Hi Whigrose,
    I know I am up to working on whatever someone is willing to let me try. lol
    I know I plan on sending some fabric scraps of the matching fabric in case someone wants to incorporate it into their row, I thought it may just help, but very optional.

    You see, I got the machines appliqued to their backgrounds and was auditioning options with fabrics, blocks, etc. I thought I wouldn't use the churn dash block so I stuck it up on my design board with some little sampler blocks I'm in the middle of. Then I was fussing with my Flying Geese strip that I really want to use because it adds so much color. The was hinting I needed his attention :-) and a breath of air so I slapped the FG strip on the board under all the little blocks. When I came back into the room it was an epiphany - Right! This is so right for me.

    Now mind you, this is just a picture of what started my new direction and is far from thought out.

    So, Ms Anna, would you still be interested in the challenge of working in one of the other two machines? Any one else maybe up to the task of working in the third machine? No hard feelings if you want to pass - and it definately would be one of those 'wait to see how it would work out' things. One thing I would ask is that the machines not be lined up under one another. I really prefer the sampler look vs linear.

    So, what do you think? One too many candy corns or am I onto something?

    best,
    deb

    Quiltermomma,

    That definitely works, when I did my applique for the dresden plates I thought of cutting the background into smaller sizes because they would be easier to work with than the whole row, but I decided not too since one long row with just one seam in the center was faster!

    babeyruth,
    Great comments, thank you. I do intend to flip the FG on the right side. What you don't see is it is all one long strip that is partially hidden under the sewing machine block. I have to wait to see how everything lines up after I do my applique stitching on the three little blocks and join their components together before I cut into it.

    Last night I flipped the HST over that are above the machine. Amazing how much color it put into the row.

    I am another that plans on sending along some fabric with my row. I may also send the drawings for the remaining sampler blocks should anyone want to do anything with those.

    What I don't want to do is stiffle anyone's creativity so no one is expected to use anything that comes in the packet.

    I am so looking forward for the opportunity to work on a 'modern' quilt. Such clean colors and lines. I'm stoked waiting for it to come my way. Love what you've done.

    best,

    Sure, I am doing my craft show and you get to have all the fun. Craft show went alright, sold one quilt, a runner, and possibly one of my more expensive ones. Yeah....
    So now I get to start on my rr. I am thrilled.
    Whigrose, I just love it and agree with babeyruth on her suggestions. What does it look if it is put on the top on that side? Just curious. So all of us are in agreement of working you machines in so we will enjoy it. Well, I have to get some things done at home here and get on the lonarm so will talk soon.

    Can you stand one more picture?

    I have finally completed my R X R for this group. Everything is sewn, appliqued, trimmed and ready for packaging. Wahoo! Doing the happy dance here.

    Now, to clean up what looks like a volcanic fabric eruption.

    PM the person below your name, in your case will be Whigrose, and get their address. This is the same person you will send to through all the rows. Each person needs to do this. We all want to be ready for the big mail date coming up at the end of the month.

    No you are not, if you don't ship all the time, then you don't know the ins and outs. I generally ship Flat Rate Priority Mail. Praise God I have not had any issues with it and delivery confirmation is included. Is cheaper if you set up an account online with the USPS.Com and print your labels which can be on paper if needed but would be sure is protected if using ink jet so no damage to ink on paper. You can also get the boxes, bubble bags, and any other supply for free, you just have to order it. This is what I do at the office since I do not get out to the post office at all. Plus is cheaper by nickels and dimes if you use the internet vs going into the post office. Yes, we want our local postal offices open, but we can save some money by getting postage online then deliver to post office or you can schedule a pick up if needed when you get your shipping labels ordered online. It works for me since the post office is three miles all directions from our office and I can't leave during the day most times.
    I think it will be cheapest to do it this way and the bubble envelopes from the post office are real sturdy and water proof, best of all free.

    How you doing ladies? Just thought I would check on progress, we have 12 more days to mailing. Nope, I am not ready, but will be on time for sure. Did everyone get the person who they are mailing to and their addresses? Just check to be sure we are communicating with the deadline near. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone in case I can't post on here because of internet access issues. Going to my mom's house so will be gone. Iphone is my only way of keeping in touch.

    I am ready to ship or better I made myself ready. It seems with the village scene there is always something I would like to add by applique but I am stopping for now. If I want to I can add more applique when the rows come back in. My problems is that my camera is broke. I want to take pictures before I ship it out. My cell phone is broke too. I will see if DH can take some pictures with his phone before I ship the row out. Can't wait to work on my first row that comes in.

    Oh you little stinker, already done. I will be in a bit. Just have to get focused on it. Still thinking of ideas of what to do. I don't have time before I leave town to take it along with me, maybe pencil and paper would be on the agenda first.

    I believe you are talking about Whigrose's row robin. I am anxious to see some progress photos here gals. I will post next week as it is progressing. Wish I had an idea so I could take it with me to work on if I was doing applique. Will most definitely be taking the tablet to draw with.

    Another reminder, be sure to include any notes regarding your row robin swap. We all want to make something nice for each other and any notes is always helpful. Be sure you have the person you are sending to's address. Need anything, let me know so I can assist. Be sure to report that you received it as well so there are no worries here.
