    Quiltermomma,
    Your row looks great! I have been tucking away images of animals for potential use in your quilt.

    Are you able to tell me the name of the quilt block which is green, purple and white print? Are the middle blocks around each edge paper pieced?

    best,

    You have to wait till I get home to tell you which one it is. I got them all out of the book I have, Voices of the Past II.

    None of them are paper pieced, all cut and pieced. They went together pretty good. had to rip the one you asked about and redo to get my center points right. THen the rhino is done by my machine and the elephant by hand. I have the lions sketched out, just not done. I may add one more row of my own when I get it back. We will see. Merry Christmas All!!!!!

    The block is called Madame CJ Walker. For the four sides, I used Eleanor Burns ruler to make those. It works so cool. I sewed two strips of fabric together then cut it down with her star point rulers. Was easier than following the measurements for me.

    Beth all your wild animals and stars made it safely to my house. What an adorable row! Thank you for the ornaments. They are so pretty and are already up in our tree. I really appreciate the printed animal coloring pages. They are very helpful.

    You do not have to use them, just for assist. Do as you please using what you want. They just happen to be designs she liked as well.

    I am well underway with Beth's animal safari and star row. How is everyone else doing? Any pictures yet or did we decide to keep it all hush hush till it is done? There is one more smal item I want to add to quiltermomma's row and I will be ready to send it on to wighrose.

    Anna,
    Send on Beth's row whenever you are ready.

    I just finished my commitment for my other RxR group - easy peasy since the participant wanted something specific and wanted it in blocks. (Not sure everyone understands the concept of a RxR :-( It's all good though. I had fun doing up my 'blocks' for her-hope she is happy with them.

    Tomorrow I am working on my monthly block swap commitment (fabrics are in the washer now). Should be done with those and have them in the mail on Wednesday at the latest. Then, it's on to your row which I am really looking forward to playing with.

    best,
    d

    Hey girls, I have my two rows on the board looking at them. Now to decide what to do. Doing the beach scene is making me want away from Washington and in the tropics. At least it is giving me warm thoughts. We are in the middle of a snow storm right now. Even got stuck in the driveway getting out. Think I need some new tires. The knob is broke on the 4 wheel drive so have to use a wrench to crank it over if it will go. Oh my, the trials of winter living. Hey Whigrose? I have finally finished or nearly finished, with some other committments so I can get these done on time and in the mail. I certainly hope you do add your flare to mine. I am so looking forward to seeing the variety I get back.

    Question Peggy, on your beach theme row, does machine embroidery sound ok? I have some designs that would stitch out nice for the beach. Also, was wondering about splitting into four squares for the 12" block theme or am I able to do a 6" square and then a pieced block, sashed, then someitng else? The sashing thru me off from the idea I had to begin with.

    Yes the machine embroidery sounds nice. You can do what ever you like with the squares. I guess I would just like to have the sashing between the rows maybe not so much between the blocks. I hope this helps. Be looking in the mail for Ruths row. I finished early cause I'm leaving for Florida for 3 weeks.

    Three weeks, sunshine and fun, you taking me? The cold and snow is not any fun.

    Ok, will do some fun stuff then. I wish I could draw it out like Whigrose so I can have a better plan, just can't seem to make myself do that.

    Anna, I am sure it is wonderful and looks awesome. You do nice work and it is much appreciated.

    Just a double check on everyone, how are your rows coming along? I know Anna is done and moving to the next, how about everyone else? Our mailing deadline is coming up.

    Ah, um, right, the row. Gotta scared, don't I? ;-)

    Finished one row (another group) and sent it off earlier this week. Finishing up my blocks now for the monthly block swap so those can get into the mail on Saturday. Then it's 2+ weeks to play with Anna's wonderful little row. I did play with some ideas a while back but when I drew it out I was horribly disappointed - so I may go to plan B. Still hoping to make my idea work; being Irish, I'm as stubborn as my eyes are green and tenacious is my middle name so I'm not giving up just yet.

    How's everyone else doing?

    best,

    I am running into so many ideas of what to do that I can't decide. How do you draw it all out. For some reason it won't jump onto the paper. How do you take the idea in head and get it on the paper? I am muddling thru. Pulling patterns and such to see what I may want to do. Wanted to do one way then thought about it and not sure is perfect enough. Found some nice sandy fabric for the beach but then had to let daughter use if for her quilt. Then had some other fabric, not sure is blue water enough. Oh the decisions, I am in anguish over it. I still have the other one to do as well.

    Don't over think it. I am sure it was fine and i will love it. Have fun!

    As for how I am doing. I need DH still to take a picture of Beth's row but then I hope to have it out to you.

    Woohoo! Just finished up the other quilting commitment and have it all packaged and ready for tomorrow's mail.

    You know what that means? It's Annaquilts TIME!! Putting on my thinking cap, making a list of all the possibilities then to narrow it down and draw it out - or, or...

    :-)

    Picture time QuilterMomma

    Here they are! I hope you like it Beth. I opted for making a small spacer block in the middle and giving these long bodied animals a more rectangle block. It looked better to me then trying to stuff them in a 12 in. square. I also used some batiks like you had with your blocks.I did break away from the stars by making one drunkards patch block as it really called for that block. Atleast in my opinion.
