    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.

    Eeeeeeee! I am so happy to be in this group.

    Anna, I can't wait to see what you come up with for your row. I just know I am going to enjoy working on it.

    Babeyruth & Peggiszo I look forward to 'meeting' and working with you both.

    Beth, I'm squealing so I know you are too :-)

    I have not chosen my theme for this swap but I am seriously considering Civil War print blocks.

    Sounds really good to me. I am ready with fabrics if need be. Right now I am doing several side swaps with Civil War blocks and the CW swap on the board with Deb Watkins.

    I am as excited working on your row robin as I am on mine.Can't wait to hear about the different themes and see the rows.

    Thought of another questions: Please put a preference if want just pieced blocks or if embroidery will be good. Already I have a couple of things that are embroidery which will go with Annaquilts theme. I will keep track so we can be sure everyone is happy with their end results.

    On my theme, which is easier for you gals, safari animal prints like lions tigers, giraffes, elephants, cheetahs, panthers, zebras, etc. or to do the crazy patch blocks? I am in two robins so need to decide which is which.

    Lets Plan!

    Oh I'll take the wild animals any time over the crazy patch. So I am hoping we get the aimals. Sounds like fun! Prints only and piecing or applique too? Who is it for?

    I think no sashing for me but I think I would like the row I make in the middle and then two rows above it and two rows below it. I guess it will be were ever you want to put it unless you are the last one to add the row.I am fine with embrodery, applique, paper piecing, piecing as long as the colors all kind of go. That is the only thing I have a hard time with. Not big on pink but love all kinds of scrappy. I am keeping this one for my home.

    Anna, what we can do on the sashing, if everyone is ok with it, that if we want sashing we include it and if not, we don't. I think this will be easier than all trade or not. This way it personalizes the quilt to each own and can see it progress. How is everyone with that? Need some conversation to know how you all want to do this. Also was a discussion on stitching rows together, i think if we all know what the others are doing and if we are or not attaching rows, we can keep it in conversaiton and ask each other. I will put you down for no sashing on your list Anna so I have the info.

    I am totally fine with putting sashing, provided or not, on peoples quilts. I can definitely see doing that with single blocks. Just tell me what to do.

    Hi all,
    Just checking in with our group. I am so excited to see what everyone is planning for their rows.

    To answer the questions of our Group Leader -
    • Group name - I have no preference if we are known as Group 7 or by another name.
    • Theme - My theme is 'My Sewing Room'- items found in my room (or wished I had in my room ;-)
    • Sashing - My preference is to join my rows when they come home to me. As for others, I have no objections if you want to include sashing for your rows to be joined as the top grows.


    A few years back I belong to a RxR swap. Each member included some sort of correspondence with their row. As each additional row was made, the maker jotted down how or why she added what she did to the quilt top. This was intended as a way to share your likes and dislike. For example, I don't like lavendars and pastels but adore the talent of hand appliquing. I will be including some sort of booklet with my row for each of you to write in if you so choose.

    Question - Do we want to poll the Group 7 members to see if we can send our rows early, or should we stick to the deadlines?

    best,
    d

    "Question - Do we want to poll the Group 7 members to see if we can send our rows early, or should we stick to the deadlines?"

    I do know that Peggiszo and Babeyruth do not have their themes down yet and I have not started mine as of yet. How do the rest of you feel? I am not going to get to mine till probably mid October or so because of other committments.

    I think if we are all ready early, like beginning of November, we can send out.

    There is no pressure and don't worry, if you are not set by November 1, then we will wait as such. The final deadline for first move is December and if we need to wait till then so be it. My main goal is that we get a great end result and we stay on task of the official deadlines.

    Anna, sent you an email regarding the other item we are working on.

    I agree, no pressure for anyone. If the rows are done early, if all agree, we can mail them early, otherwise we stick to the deadlines.

    Questions for the group:
    1. Would the group have any objections if I request my rows be significantly smaller than 12.5 x 60.5? Each wall in my studio, with the exception of one, is already dedicated. The available wall is exposed to bright sunlight thus making it unacceptable for a place to hang any sort of fabric; plus, it is around a corner in an alcove where whatever hangs there would never be seen.And we can;t have that, can we? ;-)
    2. I cut out appliques of three of my antique machines. Originally I had thought to use each of them in my starter row. Now I am wondering if they should be spread around the quilt top. Would two of you be willing to work one of them into your row you do for me? No worries if there is no interest in doing that, I will work them in. It was just a thought I had.


    Whisper - I may just ditch the whole theme and go with something else.

    best,
    d

    They are so pretty girl. As stated, put it in the note of what you are working toward, include it into the box for mailing and I believe we can make adjustments for it. I know I can. If you say I want this in row 3, then that person would add it, and row 5 so they are spread evenly around, then we can do that. This way we are getting a great end result as we want. Also, I believe you said you were not fond of machine embroidery? Be sure that is on your list so I do not do all the wonderful antique sewing machines I have on my embroidery designs, and put them in your quilt when you don't want them. (LOL)

    I LOVE YOUR APPLIQUES!!!!!!!!!! Great job on designing them. Wow, I personally know how awesome your work is from the quilt I have hanging on the wall that I enjoy every day which next year will go in a couple of quilt shows in your honor of course.

    I'd gladly work one of your pretty babies in. Just send one if you'd like. Also whatever size you need /want on my behalf. I'll adjust. I don't do smaller then 3 1/2 at this point though but I love 3 1/2 and 6 1/2 blocks especially for paper piecing.

      I agree, I would like the option to join the rows when they come home so I can setup the order.


    I already have my rows ready to go, I do like some direction from the owner but not too picky please! I want to have fun and not be too pressured to have it perfect or with tight directions. I am looking foward to stretching myself by working on other rows!
