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.

OR we could do another row row or something this is so much fun. Love to see how the quilts evolve from that one row. The one you have now, I REALLY wanted to keep for me. Loved that 1st row.

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)

The package with timecard's rows arrived while I was out of town. Just opened it up and had a quick peek. Will come up with a plan soon. This is the 4" row--that scares me a little!

4" row is hard so I decided to use my embroidery machine to make some centers. I finished this one early. It's due to Lori by May 1st. Here are Bluesnail's rows.

I added 8 little mice to the cat row, using my hand dyed fabrics from a class last year.
Fun quilt!

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!

It was a day late, but I did manage to get the package in the mail yesterday. Linda (warmbuns) my PO ticket says you should get it on Thursday. I have a tracking number if we need it.

I already got my next package from timecard.

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.

go ahead Rondi.. I will be doing my 4" row next Wednesday when Marie comes over.. Might just get them both done up.

My daughter is having surgery so I have to go to Bama for a week anyway... Better to get them done and be ahead of the game.

I thought of something for future reference...

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.

I'm loving the suggestions about the labels. Why is it we always think about things in the middle of a project. Now you got me thinking.

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.

We are happy to report that the package I sent to Ely has been found!! yippeeee!!

It was delivered to City Hall for some strange reason... 2 blocks down from the offices where Ely actually works.

She called me just a bit ago with the happy news... but the post office isnt going to be so happy this evening... She said she is taking the package down there and complain... haha!

Let em have it Ely!

She said "Q, you wrote my name and address so big, there should have been no reason why the sorter put it in the wrong bin".

I agree!
