    This is fun knowing it is going across the US to the other side. From west to east to south then north, going all directions.

    Ok, tapping foot, what to do what to do what to do. Now daughter is making a quilt for boyfriend and is making me take down my rows so she can put her blocks up to arrange so she can get her quilt done so I can do the binding? What? Me binding? She knows I do not like and of course it needs to be done before January 26. Geez, and I thought I was done with pressure. Now to put my ideas to the fusible and get them done. Going quilting over at a freinds house on Saturday, yep a sewing day, will take along so I can get my rows done.

    I am sure glad Whigrose was my quilt swapper last year, I learned a special thing about fusible applique, cut the extra out of the middle. So now the wonderful beach items will be softer. I have decided on a sail boat, star fish, an ocean fish with sea weed, a palm tree, an umbrella drink, a clam, and shovels and bucket to build that sandcastle. Can't seem to find a sand castle so will leave that to someone else. Not real good at drawing, it would end up looking as bad as when I make them. LOL

    How are you doing peggy and baberuth? Just checking on everyone. I know Whigrose is busy on Anna's and has mine waiting, Anna has nothing better to do at the moment, waiting on the next tround, babeyruth is loving the pressure she is on finishing two row robins, and peggy? The mailing deadline is actually February 1 and if ok with the person you send to, mail away when you are done. I am ok with you sending to me peggy when you are ready. I will be mailing mine out next week, yeah ahead of the game for Anna. Just touching base with everyone. Being the prodder I guess.

    Anyone want to join a paper piece swap? Lot of fun! Ronda is a great host. I have done two paper piecing swaps with her.

    Hmm true but it is great because the end result is so nice and I am also able to use up scraps. They let you use different fabrics as long as the pattern is the same. Yeah on not having to buy more fabric or running out and then having to remake a set to have them all the same fabric.

    Hi Quiltermomma, it is a great tip, one of my instructors said to just make sure it doesn't change the color without the fusing underneath. I recently am working on a self portrait and my it would of added more shadows, which can always turn out to be a plus!

    I am really enjoying this swap. Can't wait to see what everyone is adding and I am also looking forward to working on my next row.

    I'm almost done with the row. Still have to sew some of the components together and figure out some piecing make the height for one section. I 'borrowed' one element from your row but with a twist.

    Ha ha ha I know the rest of it. I got a peek, na na na na na na na.

    You will be getting Peggizo's by the end of the week I hope. Have all the designs traced I want, also the backgrounds are picked, just have to press, cut, press, and stitch. Just not sure on the sashing on what I am going to find to go with what she has, any further info would be helpful. I need to go to the chiropractor so will stop at the one store up that way I know may have something.

    Whigrose I am loving it! The sheepies and fabric are adorable. Like the little scrappy strip too.

    Can't wait to see the rest. If I am good girl will you post a picture of the whole row or do I have to wait till they fly home?

    Beth, "Ha ha ha I know the rest of it. I got a peek, na na na na na na na." Rub it in girl!

    Well, isn't Quiltermomma being a big tease to you - saying she knows the rest of it? I have to tell ya, the sheep are even cuter than the pic shows.

    It was pretty funny here for a moment because I needed two little crows. I had thought to just trace yours when I looked up and saw my little wall mural right in front of me that has lots of little crows to borrow from. :-)

    I would be happy to post (or send, which ever you prefer) a photo of your rows when I get mine completed. Hopefully it won't be too long now. I have another little project I want to do before I start on QM's rows.

    best,

    Omgosh, I am so close to being done with Anna's row that I am giddy. Only thing is, I have to stop for now. Dh just invited me for a hot toddy and to play Super Mario. I know, I know. At our age... :-) ~giggle~

    Anna, I have just taken a picture of my progress up to now. Do you want to see it as it is now or wait for the last piece to be made up then added? I am going to do a panel piece with a vine/flowers. The row calls for something 'soft' and this will be a an opportunity for some color, too.

    I have learned two things working on your row- doing 'Country' is tough for me. It really has been a chore not to get primitive mixed in; second, I now prefer a zig zag stitch for appliqueing. I was studying your row and how you applied your applique pieces and decided to give zig zag a second chance - and I am so happy I did. It's way quicker and far less stressful for me. You inspired me to step out of my box. Thank you.

    best,
    d

    I love to see any pictures. yes, zig zag is a great way to go. I have to do zig zag as my machine doesn't do satin but it works great. Some primitive if fine too. I just kind of mixed it all including old fabrics and primitives as well as other stuff. Whatever looks good. Just relax and have fun. Can't wait to see in progress pictures if it is not too much effort. I will check later to see if you decided to post.

    Anna's row so far. I have one more component to add - know what I want to do. Hoping to have it completed tomorrow. Oh, ignore the little block in the empty space- it isn't staying.

    Hope this will work for you Anna.


    There's a livery and what was intended to be a bank but is dubbed 'Quilter Cache' :-)

    Ok ladies, I need your input please.

    I have pretty much completed Annaquilts row but I find myself wondering how I should address the space around/above the livery, or if I even need to. What are you thoughts about it and do you have any suggestions for what could go into that space?

    Here's the latest pic as of this evening. I did cut out a tie-down and horse for outside the livery but when I added the rabbit/flower section I thought maybe it was too much. (I may pop them into an envelope for you Anna in case you might like to add them when your rows come home to you.)

    Looking forward to hearing your opinions.
    best,
    d
