    Hi Ladies,

    Just a quick note. I'm up to my eyeballs getting ready for vacation, leaving friday morning for the coast of Maine and will be back on the 22nd. I'm taking the laptop so I will get caught up on the thread. I'm so excited to join your group. Thank you so much for having me. My 1st row robin! Thinking about sampler blocks in Civil War reproduction fabrics. How's that sound to all of you? Do you think that's something doable? I know some swappers work from their stash so I don't want anyone to feel they have to go buy fabric.

    Yea! another Buckeye

    Dogs and Puppies for me. I will be on Vacation this upcoming week, I am still shopping for fabric for my row robin. I seen it in a shop and now need to go purchase,if it is not there any more I will start shopping again. There is so much dog and puppy fabrics, tough decision. I have civil war fabrics, need to gather a bit more, will need to gather roses/blue roses, and scrap blocks I have plentiful. and Cheryl W, I need to know your theme,so I can begin collecting and sorting your fabrics, themes can come from your hobbies, favorite colors, things you like to collect ,or your passion. Can hardly wait to find out...

    I'm loving my vacation in Maine. I have stopped at 2 fabric stores so far. Loaded up on lighthouses/shells/seashore/starfish/sailboats. Lovely fabric from Marcus Brothers/Timeless Treasures/Elizabeth's Studio(which I love!) and a few others.

    Thanks for the welcomes!

    Hi to all!

    I have finally decided on my theme - batiks. I bought enough fabric to send everyone a fat quarter to use to keep a little consistancy throughout the rows. I will also be including some sashing to go between rows.

    My question for everyone is this: do you want me to send you the fat quarter now or do you want to get it with the row? Majority will be the method! I hope to get a square or two done next week and will post a picture when I do.

    Hope everyone is doing well. oldcatlady your fabrics sound great, should make into a beautiful quilt.

    Scrapper and cuppy would love to see pictures if you have started on your rows. Shana hope your computer problems are short lived.

    Take care all!

    do we make whatever blocks we want as long as they go with the theme if not specifically mentioned?

    I like the idea of seeing the blocks early so we can get an idea of what we want to do or to get fabric.

    CherylW - are you leaning toward a specific color of batiks? I have a lot in my stash already. I'm OK with whatever you decide about the fat quarters.

    CherylW, I would rather have the fat quarter come with the top...if it comes seperate I'm afraid I'll put it "some where safe" and never find it!

    Cat Lady - My understanding was that we could do what ever we wanted as long as it fit the theme of the quilt...someone tell me now if that isn't right!!

    Unfortunately my laptop sleeps with the fishes lol borrowing/sharing with my sister until I'm able to get a new one sometime around Christmas...maybe if I'm lucky a bit earlier. When I get my center finished I'll post pictures of it, but it probably won't be until close to Thanksgiving!

    All right everyone - 1 month until your 1st row needs to be mailed. I will send a PM to everyone with the list of addresses and where you need to be sending your row. I should have pics this weekend of my squares.

    Hope everyone is doing well and weathered the storms ok. Lots of wind here but I missed it by being in Las Vegas visiting my brother. 80's and sunny the whole time. Oh well, now back to real life - 30's and overcast!

    If anyone is having any problems - be sure to let me know and I will see what I can do to help.

    Have fun!

    Well I sent the PM and have now realized that it was not up-to-date. Getting a current address list from QBee - or if you all want to PM me your addresses that would be great!!! (Think Tony the Tiger). Sunny and warm Sunday afternoon in Central Ohio. Laundry and sewing on the schedule this afternoon if I ever get off the computer. I work tomorrow so hope to send the new address list on Tuesday.

    Thanks!

    Hi everyone,

    I thought I would be done before the PO closes at noon today but I'm going to need the rest of the WE to finish and will mail out on Monday via priority. I will post pics when done and I am going to include some fabric scraps that I have left over and some fabric from one of the main fabrics I used so if you want to use any or none feel free to.

    I will include sashing that I would like between the blocks and I'd like the rows to stay unattached if you wouldn't mind. That way I don't have to send the sashing that goes between the rows and I can play around w/ row placement when it comes back to me.

    I am doing sampler blocks. I picked blocks that would have been around during the civil war era (old patterns that seem to have been around forever). This is my 1st row robin so it will be a learn as you go experience for me

    I am going to send a small journal that you can write in if you wish. I'm going to put the block names in there.

    I'm not sure what to do about a label yet. Have any of you decided? Can you either post a pic or explain what you are using to give me an idea?

    I'm so excited but a little nervous to work on your quilts!

    I would love to see any pics you have of your rows so I can start thinking ahead

    Hello Ladies,
    here are some pics of my row. I'm not crazy about a few of the blocks. I may end up ripping them out when I get the rows back.

    I just need to figure out what I'm doing for a label and write in my journal (after I dig one out). I'm hoping to get that done tonight so I can mail it tomorrow.

    Am I the last one to get mine out?
