    My first row robin - love how it turned out

    Five quilting friends from RiverCity Guild in Sacramento got together and did a row robin (there were supposed to be six). This is mine. I started it with the middle row. When I sent my row on, I sent the green fabric for the sashing. Each row came back with it all put together. All I had to do was put the green sashing around the outside and then the yellow border. I added the bear on the side getting into the honey jars. I love it so much, I am ready to join another row robin.

    It turned out great, and I love how it tells a story!

    It's "un-bear-ably" adorable! I just love this to pieces! Row quilts just fascinate me anyway but this one is a real beauty! Great job!!!

    Cute cute ! Love the idea of round robin, like the old round robin letters! Wish i knew enough quilt buddies to do this!

    I've never heard of a row robin, but the quilt is quite adorable. I love you bear getting into the honey pot. Nice addition.

    What a fun quilt. I love how it all "belongs" together. Thanks for sharing your story and the finished product!

    What a wonderful row robin you got! I love the honey bee theme it took on. DH keeps bees and I so want to make him a bee themed quilt.
