2013 RRRR - Party has started
I am really looking forward to working on all these rows!
Rockin...yours is awesome! I love the colors and theme. Fun.
Nicki, I was pleased to see red!! How weird, I'm doing blue!
I need to get my PP block printed at 200% and I can start.

Yea! fabric all cut and some sewn. Had an outside appointment today, just got postponed to next week
. I get to go back to my project! Watch for pic

Rockin! Love the cake and the "party". Reminds me of Mary Lou Weidman's fun quilts.
Jan 09, 2013, 07:32 PMirish62
I bought the Modern Quilt Block book at joann, with a coupon of course.
I had the PP pattern printed and am ready to go. I am doing a Union Jack block. I just love the X graphics of it.

The party is move'n on, I just received J Lu's row. What beautiful Christmas panels! I have an idea just need to make sure I have the correct colors.
Still a bit more work on mine and I will get in in the mail, hopefully before the postage rates go up
Jan 10, 2013, 10:07 PMFleur55
Just finished my row
. I am happy with the way it turned out. The red really pops! May use the birdie fabric for borders, not sure about the sashing yet. Will get it to the post office soon.

Very striking, Fleur.
Jan 13, 2013, 02:05 AMrondiquilts
Yes! Have my plate clean and have gotten started on this. You all have been so creative, so much eye candy and inspiration.
Here is a start on mine...
Jan 13, 2013, 07:32 AMGonesewin
I showed mine on the PM's but I'll show it here too.
Bluesnail, are you ready for it or shall I hold onto it a little longer?

Fleur55 glad the big guy made it safe. I love your row. I am putting on my thinking cap with all I have seen already. Please don't over think about the colors, it's Christmas I think Santa loves them all.
Jan 15, 2013, 08:17 AMRockinBobbin
JLu - I sent my row out yesterday, so be on the lookout.
(sent conf. # to Nicki)
The Happy Birthday fabric is full of color, so go off that. Whatever you think looks good. I would prefer tone-on-tone kind of fabrics so it doesn't become too overwhelming.
Jan 15, 2013, 08:26 AMJ Lu
Yeah I've been looking at your row all week. I have my idea already just waiting for your fabric. Can't wait to get started.
Jan 15, 2013, 08:55 AMQuiltaholic
Ely is leaving for vacation today so I won't be mailing to her. I will mail mine to who Ely mails to when it is time to mail again for March 1.
Ely will receive mine at the very end of the robin to create her row for me so it doesn't hold the robin up.
Jan 15, 2013, 11:54 PMFleur55
J Lu, I have been working on your row
, having a great time playing with Christmas fabrics.
Jan 16, 2013, 04:37 PMJ Lu
RockinBobbin I received your row today. Wow! It is so much prettier in person. I've already stated my row for you I was waiting for your fabric to come in. Love it. It's going to be a great Birthday for everyone. Now I want to make my grandchildren one.
Jan 16, 2013, 04:39 PMJ Lu
Awesome Fleur can't wait to see it. Now are we posting our rows from us? I would like to keep some of this a surprise from myself.
Jan 16, 2013, 06:24 PMirish62
I PP'd my first block.
Part of next started.
Loving the blocks/rows so far!
Jan 16, 2013, 06:49 PMalexemmarose
Watching with great interest! Wonderful!
Jan 16, 2013, 07:52 PMFleur55
Very striking block Irish
, love the use of the two colors together.
J Lu, I will not post your row, would you like to see the fabric? I'm with you I think I would like to be surpised. Either way we will have a wonderful quilt when the rows are all put together
Jan 17, 2013, 07:47 AMRockinBobbin
Irish.... that is sooooo cool. Will all of your blocks be sewn in that design? I'd like to start thinking about a block that would look nice with that (just ideas for now). You do not have a "theme", correct?
JLu - glad you rec'd it. I don't mind if you post pix of mine. But, for yours, we should keep it a secret from you - is that right? (I just looked it up; I don't get your row 'til last anyhow.)
Have a good day.
Jan 17, 2013, 08:42 AMJ Lu
Yeah I don't want to see my rows! I want it to be a surprise. I don't want to see the fabric either ok.
Irish I Love your block. I really love to paper piece your points are so pointy right. the teal fabric is stunning..
the bad weather is heading in so I guess I'll have to sew all weekend. Bummer huh!
Jan 17, 2013, 09:39 AMRockinBobbin
JLu - are you some kind of Willpower Superwoman?
There's a pan of brownies sitting on the kitchen countertop. They are warm and gooey and chocolatety.......you: ?.......
Jan 17, 2013, 11:27 AMJ Lu
Oooooo chocolate I love it. Well yes you could say that RockinBobbin I am a sort of wonder women. At least my husband and kids think I am. Lol!
Jan 17, 2013, 11:29 AMJ Lu
I'm working on your row right now little girl and I ain't showing ya. I like to share the pain.
Jan 17, 2013, 01:24 PMRockinBobbin
Oh -no way?!? Not even a little peek? No fair.
You have no idea what this does to me.
I am the girl that sees that pan of brownies and dives right in. I don't even care if it ruins my appetite, or my self-confidence! Zero willpower. Period.
Jan 17, 2013, 07:25 PMJ Lu
Ttttteeeeee!!! I'm almost done.
Jan 18, 2013, 11:02 PMrondiquilts
My blocks are done. Going to get them sewn together and I'll be ready to mail.
Jan 19, 2013, 11:10 AMrondiquilts
Done! I won't get to the post office today but I hope to get to there Tuesday. Will let you know Thearica!
Jan 19, 2013, 11:14 AMalexemmarose
Ooooh...what fun rows I am seeing!!
Jan 20, 2013, 07:00 PMirish62
Rockin, all 4 of my blocks are the same pattern.
I have no theme. Do whatever moves you!
I have one more to PP.
They take a bit of time.
I am initiating a RRRR in my guild!
Jan 21, 2013, 07:58 AMRockinBobbin
I'll be on the lookout.
It's certainly more challenging without a theme. I'm noot quite sure what I'm going to do yet.
Jan 22, 2013, 07:45 AMrondiquilts
Quiltaholic, be on the lookout for my package. Have it sitting at door to go to PO today.
Jan 22, 2013, 11:34 AMrondiquilts
Jan 22, 2013, 12:48 PMFleur55
ekbuckeye, rows just sent
Will PM confirmation number.
Jan 24, 2013, 10:39 AMrondiquilts
I have idle hands, need something to do... RN55, are you close to being ready to send? I can't wait to see a package in my mailbox.
Q~anxious to see if mine is in your mailbox today!
Jan 24, 2013, 11:32 AMNickilee
Looks like we are all on target for a February 1st start date.... yea!
Irish - I will have mine out to you in Monday's mail. Have a feeling with the weather being so dang cold a lot of us will be spending a lot of time inside sewing!
Jan 24, 2013, 11:59 AMtimecard24
Warm buns, I will have mine in the mail no later than Monday.
Jan 25, 2013, 12:31 PMQuiltaholic
I received Rondiquilts package!! I haven't had time to open it yet but wanted to let her know it came yesterday!
Jan 25, 2013, 02:18 PMrondiquilts
Thanks! Good to know. Although I have plenty I need to be doing here I am anxious to get my next row and start working on it. Course, no rush, RN55, I realize we have till the beginning of the month to get in mail. Just hard to sit on my hands...
Jan 26, 2013, 08:46 AMQuiltaholic
Actually to keep everyone on the same time schedule as best as possible, Nicki's instructions were to mail so it is received by the first of each month... not to mail by the 1st.
Mail Date: Mail your 12” Blocks to be received by February 1st.
Jan 26, 2013, 02:57 PMirish62
I spent the morning finishing my row up.
I will mail out to you Rockin, on Monday
I will be on lookout for yours Nicki.
Jan 26, 2013, 05:42 PMpandibear
My row was mailed today to Lace Angel. DC 03121430000266980326
Jan 27, 2013, 08:12 AMRockinBobbin
Irish - that's beautiful, but I can't wait to see it in person.
I sent you a PM about my row idea.
Jan 27, 2013, 09:46 AMalexemmarose
Irish...wonderful colors together! Love it!
Jan 27, 2013, 04:38 PMQuiltaholic
This is a photo of RN55's row..She could not get her photo size down small enough to post so she emailed it to me so I could help her... She has had the flu for a week and needs our good wishes to feel better soon. She will be mailing tomorrow.
Jan 27, 2013, 04:56 PMJ Lu
Very pretty and colorful RN55. Thank you for sharing.
Jan 27, 2013, 07:00 PMrondiquilts
I like that. Thanks for sharing, now I kinda get an idea of what I maybe able to do to add to it.
Jan 27, 2013, 07:23 PMRN55
quiltaholic thank you so much for posting my row. rhondi cannot wait to see what you do. the fabric I am sending along is the background the white print.
