    I am checking in! I have participated in a row robin before.sew much fun. We chose to do our sashing on our own,that way we could place the rows in the order we wanted. My theme is dogs/puppies. I like all dogs, puppies dog fabrics, all blocks,applique. I have chinese sharpei.
    ,embroidery . I will send a few small scraps of dog fabrics, you can use them or send them to the next robin.

    Loooking forward to finding out what your themes are.

    Hi everyone! This is my second row robin - I loved the first one I was in. Should we select a name for our group? Need some creative ideas.

    Cuppy I love your dog theme - I have a German Shepherd and have always had dogs. Have had a West Highland Terrier, Scottish Terrier, Boxer, Chihuhua (not sure about the spelling on that), 2 German Shepherds and a Shepherd/Golden mix.

    I haven't totally decided on my theme yet - several ideas rolling around in the old noggin. Will be working over the next week or so to solidfy and start working.

    I think we should post pictures as we start to work on things so that everyone can get an idea of what's coming and how their piece is growing. I know I enjoyed that the last robin I was in.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to either post your questions here - I will be on the board 4 - 5 times weekly or send me a PM. I want us to have a fun time with this.

    Happy sewing!

    Hello ladies. This my first Row Robin and I am looking forward to getting to know all of you as we go along. Like CherylW I have a few ideas going around. How would you all feel about Snow globes? They would not have to be "winter" globes, just something interesting in the globe part.
    If that doesn't work for all of you I will come up with something else.

    Well, the globes are out - they are too small and larger one would not be as cute. I will think on it today and come up with something new and let you know.

    I like the idea of adding our sashing when the rows come home. Scrapper - have you come up with a theme for yours yet?

    @cuppy I did a dog themed quilt for my niece when she graduated last year so I have a couple neat ideas for blocks for you!

    I will like what ever you choose. I had a german shepherd when I was a child,then I had 2 chihuahuas, and 2 chinese sharpeis. I adore the scottie dog(quilt dog) I like all dog and puppy fabric, dog houses, all blocks with doggy fabrics
    .My row is rather simple, I am waiting on fabric I ordered, should be here any day. I did a row robin several years ago, theme was Kentucky Derby!! Hubby is from Kentucky, What a beautiful quilt, horses and hats.. maybe will try to post a photo.

    Oooh cuppy - please post the KD quilt pics - it sound lovely.

    I have decided to do a star theme and call it Twinkle, Twinkle. There are so many ways to make star blocks that it should make for a wonderful row robin.

    I wonder where our other two members are?

    Dragonfly -

    I love your idea of a star theme. So much can be done with that. Will have to start looking for good fabrics for stars. But then again, need to firm up my theme.

    Thanks Cheryl What are you thinking about doing? Maybe we can help with ideas.

    Also, I like the idea of sharing pictures as we go. Once I have a couple of my blocks made I will post them but I have to finish a couple things before I can start on them.

    Hi Ladies

    Sorry for stealing Dragonfly Nana away from you, but VERY thankful she was willing to switch groups with me. The other group was GREAT all very nice ladies, but my sister, who I share a house with, also was in that group...to save ourselves tears, sweat & bloodshed, we stopped quilting with each other several years ago Being in the same group and one after the other was not a good combination. Poor QBee, what a great Swap leader for getting me moved so quickly. Completely my fault for not thinking to tell her we couldn't be in the same group!

    I'm good with leaving rows unattached to added sashing between each row

    My original theme was blue roses...but I'm considering a change. I'll let you know if my shopping trip next week changes the theme or not!

    Thanks again for having me!!

    Here I am!! Greetings my new found round row robin ghoul friends! This is my first round rowing' hee hee and can't wait to get started. I like the idea of adding sashing when it comes home. I'm always afraid of asking/expecting too much.

    Now for mee theme.....I am doing a scrap/leftover/sample/practice block type of quilt. I would like everyone to use those blocks/pieces you kept but often asked yourself why and then answered yourself that you just couldn't bear to toss it out. The theme is no theme LOL. Just dig out those blocks/practice pieces and create something 12 1/2 x 60 that can be attached. Doesn't hv to be pieced blocks it can be a piece of machine or hand embroidery etc. please do not stress out whether it will match etc. This will be a TRUE SCRAP quilt Made from all those precious pieces we just couldn't throw out but had no use for them.

    That's mee theme and I'm sticking to it LOL

    Shana - Welcome to the group! We are more than happy to have you.

    Scrapper - I love your theme. I will have to see what I have in my bin (the block graveyard!).

    Ladies - I do think that right before we get ready to mail our rows we should do a final post with instructions about sashing, not attaching, or whatever special needs are. I will then cut and paste all of the info into 1 PM so you can keep it separate and handy for future reference. How does that sound?

    Just finished a baby quilt today and need to do a couple of table runners and then I will figure out my theme. Batiks is running through my mind as well as holidays. Or maybe months - a block to symbolize each month with 2 - 3 months in each row. Have to think more on that.

    Sew Happy!

    Since so many of us already have completed 1st rows are will soon are we going to ship when we are ready or wait until the 'due' date? For me the piecing is the easier step and tends to go very quickly, it's the actual quilting process that I'm slow at lol

    Cuppy, Your quilt is right up my alley too! lol I do large breed dog rescue I have 11 dogs at my house at this moment. Crossing my fingers it doesn't become 12...but I think there is a boston terror headed my way today, but she is suppose to be short term ONLY. lol While my rescue is suppose to focus on large & giant breeds right now I've got everything from a 15lb. Jack Russell-Chihuahua mix to a 110 lb. Great Pyrenees-Mastiff mix Looking forward to working on your quilt lol have so many ideas!!

    I am happy everyone will enjoy doing a row with dog theme. My starter row is a bit simple but will begin the theme of the quilt.

    Scrapper, I can just go ahead and work on your row... I have plenty of orphan blocks! I think I will like your scrappy quilt.
    I should have my fabric I ordered any day and thenn I will complete my row.

    Ok Ladies..........where are we........where's our leader

    Do we have a theme for everyone in our group? Shouldn't we be communicating about something? LOL

    If you insist I can communicate :P lol I'm still wibble-wobbling a bit...my original theme is blue roses, but I'm thinking about expanding it to be "Blue Flowers" lol I've seen some BEAUTIFUL stuff lately that makes me want to expand...what do ya'll think, is blue flowers easier for you than blue roses?

    Shana - I think blue flowers is an excellent idea. A little broader and I think you will get a tremendous quilt when it is done.

    Still have not heard from debfaye yet. I PM'd her today so hope to hear from her in the next couple of days.

    I'm still undecided as to my theme too. Hope to have it decided by the end of the weekend.

    Hope everyone is doing well. Can't believe October 1st is Monday. Have a great weekend!

    Anybody ready to post pics of their beginning squares or completed row? Would love to see some!

    Sorry, I'm not being very 'vocal' on this thread! Life has been CRAZY the last few weeks, so many things to do that I'm not even sure where to start! Discovered that one of my rescue dogs is going to have puppies, and I don't have anyone to blame but myself!

    I have my row planned out in my head, just have to find the last fabric before I get started on it(after I put the sewing room back together of course lol).
