    I have sent out e-mail to the ladies of group 12 in the round robin. I asked for ideas of names for our group. I received only one name suggestion and heard from only two ladies. I haven't heard from you. The name suggested for our group is Quilters 12. What does everyone in the group think? I hope to hear from all of you, soon.

    Thanks
    Joyce L

    Ladies, my theme was left off the list - so this is it
    The Underground Railroad (URR) Blocks in Civil War fabrics.

    URR blocks are: monkey wrench, bear's paw, log cabin (w/red center, w/black center), hour glass, dunkard's path, wagon wheel, north star, crossroads, shoofly, flying gesse, tumbling blocks, basket, nine patch, sailboat, jacob's ladder, broken dishes. I did crossroads, nine patch, jacob's ladder, and basket for my starting row. Please, if you don't have civil war era fabric, don't go out and buy any, check your stash for something that could past and is close to it. Although I did four different blocks don't feel you need to do the same, you can do one of the blocks in different colors. Be creative, and most of all let's have fun.

    Gail, thought I was mailing the row out to you but received a PM reminding me that blocks were not due until Feb 15th??????? So, I guess I just hold onto it till then, and of course, run the risk of forgetting to mail it. Not a happy trouper

    Not enough light in the room, sorry

    That looks wonderful - I have never done any underground railroad or civil war blocks / themes. I have been doing some research - - SO GLAD to see your row. It gives me a heads up for ideas and colors....

    I just found this thread today. I will post pictures as soon as I get a chance. I did a spider web block today and it didn't turn out so well. I might have to find a different one to use. As for preview, I'm a scrappy quilter. Like it says I like all blocks and all colors. I usually do all my blocks in different fabrics that coordinate with each other. Then, if I choose to do sashing I pick a solid that goes with everything.

    Okay here's a picture of what I have so far. I'm running a little behind because I thought we were supposed to mail on the 20th. I will be done and have it in the mail by Monday or Tuesday. Off to sew another block!

    Here are pictures I have taken of the first row of blocks sent to me. They are from Barbara Shaysmema. Her theme is Civil War Scrappy. Also pictures of the two blocks I have completed to add to it. Have two more cut and and ready to sew. It has been an experience. The first block I attempted to make didn't turn out so well. Tore it out so many times, the fabric became fraied. So my friend came over to show me what I was doing wrong. Things went better after that. Hope Barbara doesn't mind posting her blocks.

    Nice job, I just love the way these are all turning out so differently, even those with the same themes. We in Gp 2 have a civil war row, which ha now grown to two rows, and it looks so different.
