I just received Pandi's row from Annette. What a beautiful package to open. Spring just jumped out of that envelope. What beautiful spring colors. Love it. Now to put on my thinking cap and start designing a 4" row of blocks.
Thank you again for Nickilee for getting this RR up. I have enjoyed sharing with others on this.
Group 2... Update on progress for the April 1st mailing....
Rondi.. I just spoke with Pandibear and she would love to see her quilt .. Can you post a photo with her rows all together.. Thanks so much.

I've finished the 6" row for Nickilee. I love this block, but I had a really hard time with it! Grrr.....Nicki, you'll have to excuse my points (or lack of!). Anyway, your quilt will be very pretty (love the colors)
Well girls the rows are lookin so great. Rockin you get it here when you can now that I see it I can pout together an idea. I wasn't sure who I had next. I have so many things going I actually didn't remember to look at the calendar until today. With no kids around Easter was kind of a dumber. Talk to ya soon.
How clever! Mice that outnumber the kitties! That's so precious and will make it a great treasure. It's the unique rows that make these robins such fun. The bottom row almost looks like cheese slices! Evelyn
Group #2 is all mailed.. Just a few to be received.. We are looking good ladies!

Ya know, if my real kitties were to ever see a mouse, they'd hide for days! Can't wait to get it home and see them in person.
My 4" row for Tanya's is ready; it was hard to come up with an idea for those small blocks. NickiLee, I'll wait a couple of weeks to mail it - and might change my mind about the blocks in the meantime!

I finished April's 4" row for Pandibears Robin today. It is simple, hard to come up with something 4". It looks nice hanging with the other rows though. I will probably go ahead and mail it the first of the week Quiltaholic if you don't mind as I will be gone the last 2.5 weeks of April. Either that or it won't get mailed till after the first of May.
Ely is looking in to where the package was left... It says it was delivered yesterday morning... She was going to the post office at 3 pm today... hopefully it is there..
Henderson and Cambridge post offices aren't playing too nice! grrr

I made one extra block and instead of throwing it, or hoping to someday use it, I think I'll send it along (it's for Ellen's quilt) and it can be used for the label. Then I thought...why don't we do that more often around here? Labeling quilts is so important, yet it's the last thing I think of. I realize we can't do it this late in the game, but how cool would it be to have a label that everyone has added some of their fabric to? Even a simple log cabin block with the center large enough for info., and then everyone adds fabric around the sides. Or one person is in charge of one other members label. Anyway, like I said - too late now, but those of you who organize multiple swaps can try it next time.
Along those same thoughts, I have put all my scraps and fabrics I have used so far on each robin I have had in a basket. At some later date I may make something with them. Or maybe piece them all together for the backing of my quilt? That would be a cool rememberance of all that passed through my hands.
Hoping to hear good news from Ely today.. This is package 2 for 2 that has gone astray... although package number one was my fault.. wrong zipcode... this one is not.. Tracking shows it was delivered to her but she does not have it...
I think I will take the next one to her and hand off.... grief!!
I have my row for Pandibear for April completed. I am putting it in the mail to Quiltaholic today since I will be gone the rest of April. RN55 please do not mail the next robin to me till after May 1st. That way I won't worry about it sitting at the Post Office and possibly getting lost.
