    Thank you wildyard, I will do just that! Thinking I may make the bowties before doing May's! I cannot believe how I have let myself fall behind as I have!

    roseOfsharon, I've fallen behind myself so don't feel bad, this isn't a race, so no rush! It will get done and look beautiful!
    Kind Regards,
    MaryAnna
    PS. Yes, I'm working on May's row tonight.

    I finished May's row late last night...real late, or early this morning! I'll post when I get the June row done.
    My question is: is anyone else running out of background fabric? I'm down to just shy of 3/4 of a yard left and had a thought. I'm thinking I'll have to do a scrappy background for my quilt; perhaps June, July & August done with another background as my background fabric will run out before we're done. Has anyone else run into this situation? Any suggestions? Thanks!
    Kind Regards,
    MaryAnna

    Yes, I am running out of fabric also. I started a new fabric. Going for the scrappy look.

    I would have MaryAnna, but I saw that Bill had said we might run short back in February (thinking),so I went straight out and bought more of the same material! So I am thinking I am ok for the duration.

    Your idea does sound interesting though!

    Sharon :)

    Yes, I was afraid earlier on that I would run short...I posted my fabric here and someone actually found it for me so I ended up with another yard or so..so I should be ok....

    Just an idea - but I have a storage box for this project alone..and any fabric that I use in any of the blocks - no matter how small..even from my scraps..it's all going back into this box - all of the balance pieces....I figure that during the quilt top experience, I may be able to use the same fabric somewhere else ..but mainly I am thinking that perhaps at the end of it all..the extra pieces may be useful to piece together a pieced or piano key border, etc....and it will bring the colors used in the quilt rows into the border and they will coordinate well with each other....

    Just an idea.... :-)

    OooOoooo cool idea Bill! I may have some of each left myself! Are we to make up our own border for this quilt top once we have finished with the rows??

    Hi Sharon,
    I don't know...but I thought that at the end of the year...perhaps we can use some of these fabrics in the border that is suggested by Claudia - or use these fabric pieces to come up with a border of our own..I am thinking that since there are so many colors, I may do a piano key border...
    It is going to be a nice sampler quilt so a multi-colored border would work well...
    Or, we can use the smaller pieces and do prairie points..that would be fun as well..... :-)

    Bill I love your ideas, yes, I too have this project and all fabric stashed away in it's own container. I was thinking of a scrappy border myself! I may solve my own 'background fabric' problem with doing a graduated background look, first 4 months will the the darker shade, then lighter for the next 4, then the lightest for the last 4 months....so I'll be 'creative' with the background fabric issue!
    Everyone, thanks for all the input!
    Kind Regards,
    MaryAnna

    Hi Barbara,
    Lots of time....there's just one 36" row per month.......the next one will be out on July 1st...
    And like MaryAnna said, there's really no race...it's a do whenever thing - just having fun as a group doing this mystery quilt together..it is a lot of fun...My favourite row to do so far was the Pinwheels in May......but they are all coming together well and is going to be a great sampler quilt....
    WELCOME!
    Bill

    It is fun. The small blocks were a trial at first but I must be getting used to them as they seem to be getting easier. That first one was the worst so far, but then I made it using Rhonda's Boston Blocks method and it was a LOT easier.

    I am liking the small blocks also. I can afford to make a couple "warm-up" blocks to practice and not feel like I am wasting too much fabric. I think you will like this project, Shaysmema. Welcome to the clan!
