    What are your names and where are you from?
    The reason I have a finished row is that I was in a row robin and I did not like the way it came out before, so I took it apart and decided to start over. LOL. The rows do not have to be finished and sent until Dec. 1. Besides, I have already changed my mind once. I am doing 2 different ones.

    The row that I have finished theme is florals in blue, cream, cranberry. I will be sending a sashing with this one. I still have to wash and make the sashings. I had pictures in the original thread of this one. Then the other row will be butterflies made from hankies. I have been collecting hankies and can send some along if people want me to. The part that I do not know, is how to embroider the head and antennae of the butterflies. I have not decided which group to do which row in yet.

    What are the themes you all have picked, if you have picked a theme yet? I want us to show pictures as we progress. We will want to pick a name for our group. In the last row robin I was in, we sent a little notebook along for each of us to write in and put our name and address and any information we wanted to add about our thoughts when we were working on each quilt top. We also sent a large label that each one could sign , date and where we lived, so when the top came back home, we could put the label on the back. We can do that if we want to. This is our group and we will get to know each other and have fun together. I like to talk alot, so keep posting. If you have any questions, ask and we will try and help each other.

    OK, I'm here. My name is Amy and I live in Kansas. I'm a single mom of 5, ages 5-12, so my life is crazy-busy. Cooking, cleaning, laundry, sewing, running, blogging, and occasionally sleeping - that's my life.

    As for my "theme"....I seriously can't think of anything. I'm considering going totally scrappy and random but I haven't 100% decided yet. Maybe once I see what everyone else wants to do, I'll be able to come up with something!

    I am Diana and I live in Tennessee. Being retired, my life if full of 'what I want to do', and I am loving it! My theme is "Rustic Fall". I have some star blocks from another swap in fall colors so I will send some of them along and ask that you combined them with what you think looks right. I have some sashing so I will probably send it along...we shall see. Looking forward to working with everyone!

    AmyB-scrappy is one of my favorites, I think it is a great idea.

    AmyB , where do you live in Kansas? I live in Prairie Village. I think scrappy is great. We all have lots of that. Diana, I love rustic fall. Yours will be the last top I receive before my own. I sure hope there are some stars left that you send with your top when I get it. I would love to incorporate them into your top. My name is Sherry.
    Any suggestions on a name for our group? My suggestion is something with Grrrr-8s in it. LOL. Make suggestions and we can vote on it.
    I personally would like my rows attached. What do you all want?

    Here are some pictures of my row that I did last year and I have never finished. It measures 12 1/2" x 60", which is what all of the rows are suppose to be.
    This was my first attempt at a row robin. All of the blocks are not the same size, but I made the row come out to the size it was suppose to be. Hope this helps. I am a visual person.

    Oops, Just to clarify, the row is to be 60 1/2" by 12 1/2" not 60" x 12 1/2".
    Thank you Defergi.

    Usually everyone uses their own fabrics. If you want to send sashing for the rows in between, that helps to unify things. In row robins you never know what twists and turns will happen. Everyone has their own vision and that is what makes them fun. If you do scrappy, you could go with the traditional all colors or maybe ask for warm or cool colors. The row you send in the beginning, kind of sets the tone for the whole quilt.

    It looks like we have decided on a name. We are the Grrr-8s. Yeah! In cat attack, are they angry cats, funky cats, or whatever cats we can come up with?

    ctipton, pm me with your email and I will attach a pdf with a cat and a sunflower pattern that I have on my desktop. Of course, I might use the same pattern on your top. LOL.
