I am so glad I FINALLY finished my row. I think it was sometime around midnite last nite that I sewed the last divider strip on. I did mail it out today though, but I forgot to insert some paper for my groups' thoughts and comments on the rows they created for it. oh well.

Here is the finished product:

Irish - I will be on the lookout. Thx

LaceAngel - love it! How did you applique the words on?

The words Chocolate are machine applique with a blanket stitch and the saying is hand embroidered. It is a pattern I had for quite some time and I enlarged it to make a 12" block. It took more time than I had allowed, but I am happy with the results.

This was one of those projects that the 'fabric spoke to me'.

I love seeing what everyone has come up with. So creative!
I received RN55's row today! What a treat. So different from what I was seeing here on the post. For some reason it was looking like primary colors to me, but its not, more like "jewels", very pretty! And Annette, the fabric you have chosen as your border is beautiful!
I have the border piece and your row pinned to my design wall now.

Thank you ladies for your thoughts and prayers. Been a rough week ... I know, with time it'll get better. Just have to keep repeating those words I've heard so oftern "This too shall pass"

Looks like we are all on target to begin our first round. For the month of February we will ALL be making 8" blocks (6 of them) for the row.

Here is my first row... note: the white background fabric is actually red polka dots. Have I said I hate how posting pictures has become such a hassell here - no matter how I size them they are either too big or too small for HGTV!

Should we be posting here, or on PM for "important" stuff, like when we receive?

I'll do both.....

I have the row from Irish. Gorgeous!

I spent some quality time at my LQS today picking out fabrics to go with Annette's row. I am ready to get started too. I have a pattern, fabrics washed, now to find some time...
It is so nice to be a part of the excitement of this robin.

No photos posted, as RN55 wants it kept secret, but I started the blocks for her row last night. I think it will compliment her first row nicely. Keep telling myself I need to get moving on this and stay moving as it is a short month.

Here is the row I made for you, Kathi. It was much harder to find a free NewYork Beauty pattern that I had expected. I put my mindgrapes to work and made my own. I wanted a thicker band to show off the gorgeous fabric you chose. The pix do not do it justice - your row/fabric is beautiful. Here is what I added to it.....

The fabric is a bit tricky, J. The pix make it look bluish, but it's actually a sea-greenish-bluish-prettyish-vintageish, but the pink batik makes it modernish. Hope that helps.
I'll try to mail it out in the next few days.

Love the pictures!

Wanted to report that I received bluesnail's row from warm buns--she needed to send it on to me early. Still need to do the row on bunsie's row and send it on to Evelyn, then I'll think about what to do on bluesnail's row.

I love your description of my fabric Tonya...it's exactly that!
I just sent a pic of your row with mine, to my DIL. She's an art teacher. She loved what you did too, especially the tip of the 1 block.
I just picked out fabrics for Nicki's row. I need to resize a paper piece pattern to 8" first.

Did you hear the thunder and see the lightning??? Finally inspiration struck! I opened a drawer while hunting for something else and discovered some fabric squares that are perfect for Lisa's 8" block! I'm really excited now to finish it. But tomorrow I'm at a workshop until 4pm, then teach two night classes, then have a birthday lunch Thursday. So it may be Thursday evening before I get it done but I've got the perfect pattern and the perfect fabrics for Lisa's row. I leave these row robins sitting in sight until ideas come. It takes me time to decide on what I want to make. I'm dancing and singing a song of happiness!

I agree about the frustration of so much being said on PM's instead of here. I can't keep it straight. I have no idea who wants to keep from seeing their rows. To me the best part of doing these robins is seeing the progress and being inspired by other rows. Who wouldn't be inspired by the awesome New York Beauty? Makes me want to try them too. Since it's such a short row it's a great time to challenge myself. Gorgeous, gorgeous!

Yea, Evelyn Smile, looking forward to seeing what you come up with. You always do such lovely work!

I am fine with seeing pictures of mine as it moves along. It will still be exciting to see it all in person when it comes home.

I have an idea about what to do for warm buns. I have it out for inspiration, just in case I change my mimnd.

This was so far back! How is everyone coming along? This month will be over before we know it. I am almost finished with RN55's row. Have a little "something-something" to add to each block then I will sew the blocks together and get in mail.
How are the rest of you fairing?

Hows' everyone doing? Seems like the fabrics are flying around my house.... right now I'm on Ekbuckeye's 8" round (due in the mail by March 1st).

Yesteday I received Fleur's red and black rows -what a fun quilt this one is going to be! Have my fabrics pulled for this round and now need to come up with a fun design.

I finished Lisa_Tx's row and will mail on to Gonesewin tomorrow. We're going out of town Friday so don't want it sitting here until the end of the month. I also thought Lori might like to start thinking about this now. Lisa's row looks like Oriental fabric with metallic gold on it. So I used some of my Oriental fabrics to make lamps. When I finished it I laid it out with the original row to photograph it. That's when I discovered Lisa's row is the wrong size. It's 51" in length. I'm not changing my row since 51 is only divisible by 3 and 17. I will, however, put some extra sashing fabric so you can make mine wider if you wish, Lisa.

Nickilee,
My address is still listed wrong on the PM. I live on 74th St and NOT 7th St. Don't want a robin to go missing.
Thanks,

JLu - did you already mail your March Row out to Fleur? You need to come to my house and help me out with all my projects - I promise you - you won't be bored! Between dyeing and packaging lace, Crazy Quilting, the RR and some custom work I barely have time to pee! Yikes!

Ladies, I know some of you are really fast at getting your rows done - if you do get ahead of the game please be sure to let the persoin you are sending to know whihc month that particular row is due. When you do receive a package you should stick a note to it noting which month it is due and what size blocks are to be made for that month.

Finished RN55's blocks last night. Pressing them now before I head to work. Tomorrow I hope to get them sewn together in a row. I anticipate mailing to Quiltaholic on Monday, not a holiday? Is it? I got to get some photos made.

Nicki, we're ok and on time. I just got ahead of myself. I'm going to slow my roll.i know everything is going to come crashing down on me sooner or later. I only have about 5 projects going right now. I'd love to come help you up there but, it's really to cold for me. I'm crying for summer already.
