Default Third of my Row by Rows...

It was love at first sight when I saw this row! It's an exact replica of the Mississippi Delta at sunset... so beautiful. The "cotton" is made with cotton chenille. The shop that created this row is the Cotton Blossom shop in Madison MS.

I like the sunset colors. And the cotton balls. I see the changes in the rows according to where people live around the country.

A real beauty of a row. I spent Christmas and some time before and after last year, a first time for me. Many beautiful sights, even if I did almost freeze to death as my DD told me to bring capris, a light jacket and short sleeves. It was in the low 40's when I got there and it didn't get any better. But, I still had a great time. Lots of nice fabric stores too.

Thanks, no I didn't. That's down near the coast, isn't it?

Ibex, if you are going to make the Cotton Blossom's row, I need to tell you some things about it. The instructions are very incomplete. They only give the length of the pieces, not the width.
1) All sky strips are 2.5" wide by 36.5" long... then you wavy cut them, all but the very top one.
2) The ground piece (brown) needs to be 4" x 36.5" long. If you got the kit, you need to trim the brown 5" wide strip they give you down to 4". Don't waste your time covering 5" with cotton bolls and then have to cut it down when you realize it's too wide, like I did.
3) No help is given in determining how much to overlap your sky strips or how wide the sky should end up. With your ground 4" wide, then the 1/2" black strip at the horizon, that leaves you only 5.5" for sky, for everything to end up 9.5" wide when sewn together.

Good luck! Are you posting your rows as you get them done?

I haven't started on the rows yet. Too many UFOs, lol, so I am in accumulation mode. I will post in your thread if I manage to get any of them done in the near future. I haven't made it to Gautier yet but have plans to head to the coast before the month is out. Thank you for the heads up on the instructions... Did you mention these problems to the folks at the shop? They are likely to change up the instructions to make it easier on folks.
