Pat's Row for Rebecca

Trying this from my iPhone. Pat has not been able to post yet so she sent me this pic.

Basket Ideas for Colene...and New Labels!

Found the coolest picture of a basket sampler quilt on Pinterest today...

Photo is from the 2007 Tokyo International Quilt Festival, and the description reads "One of eighty "partnership quilts" in the charity raffle"

Also, I added Labels to the posts. The labels are based on the quilt owner, so when I made rows for Karen, the label says Karen (not Misha). The one at the top says "All" and that's where you'll be able to quickly access things that apply to everyone like the Current Round Progress. Check it out and let me know if you have any questions.

Side note to Karen: I see a draft of a post that you started but never I know you got on at least once as a contributor! If you were to go to the Design link (top right menu) and went back to that post, you could potentially Publish it. Try a new one, it won't hurt. I promise!

Trees for Mishas Row

Here are 6 trees I just finished for Mishas Row. I really like the little quilt you are inspired from for this session, I think I will have to make one like it myself. I hope like them! :)

Karen's First Two Rows

Ok, I finally picked two blocks to piece and Karen's Row is now ready to go to Rebecca! Sadly my camera has been dropped a few too many times and does not like to take very sharp pictures, but I did the best I could.

I did not sew my blocks into a full row, so Karen can reposition them later if she wishes. I also only added bars to the sides of the redwork blocks, not the tops or bottoms. I figure this will be an easy modification for her to make later, if she thinks they need them once she works out her final layout.

I also know that Rebecca's original row did make it to Pat recently, so I'll go and modify that post.

Karen's blocks for Dee's row

I just realized Karen has not posted the picture of her blocks for my row here, so thought I'd find it from the forum and post it here for reference.

Two More Blocks for Karen

I did one more redwork block and the first of two pieced blocks for Karen's row. I still need to add trim to both of the redwork blocks, as well.

flower power

Colene, hope this is something like what you had in mind. Once you told me it didn't have to be baskets but that vases were ok, that seemed t0 break my mental block. I tried doing a bit of machine applique but it just didn't work and really I wanted to do some hand work anyway. These are all glued and two are finished, the other two won't take too long. Hopefully I can send them on to Karen by next weekend, mostly on time.
and in the meantime I remember why I love applique so much, having a wonderful time playing with needle and thread and all these lovely colors and "crisp" shapes.

Current Round Progress

Well ladies, how is everything coming along? I know that Karen completed Dee's row and I've received it. I've got the first redwork done for Karen's row, and hope to get started on a 2nd one today. I think I'll only have time to stitch 2, so the rest of the row will be pieced blocks.

Row robin for Karen

I will continue to update this post as the Round 1 (starter) rows make their way to the next quilter. The "Round" number will be how many completed rows it has. I think that makes sense?

Updated May 3rd...future updates will be in a different post.

Colene received Rebecca's Round 2 row AND Misha's Round 3 row!!! (5/3)
Dee received Pat's Round 2 row (4/30)
Karen has received Colene's Round 2 row
Misha has Dee's Round 2 row
Rebecca has and Karen's Round 2 row
Pat is empty handed now (5/3)

If there are any updates, please add them to comments!
