Round 4 - Karen's Row for Pat

karen for pat row robin 089

We're off to a great start, ladies! Karen has already finished Pat's row, but she noticed the background fabric is running a bit low so she's going to acquire more before sending it off to me in Washington.

Just as well, as all I've done so far this round is make some empty baskets for Colene, LOL! Two of the 4 are sewn down, the other 2 are glue basted. I've signed up for a Quilt University class that started this week to learn Hawaiian Applique from none other than Nancy Lee Chong herself, and hope to put her tips to work on appliqueing flowers into these baskets in the near future.

Hope all y'all are doing well, and feel free to post progress pictures if you wish. You don't have to wait for the entire row to be completed to give us a peek! This round has a mailing deadline of September 22nd, so there's plenty of time left :)

Pat's Rows - Round 3 is Complete!!

Colene's at the top, Pat's in the middle and mine at the bottom.  Planning to dash by the PO this week before DD and I leave on our trip. -Dee

I found this post sitting in the hopper from a few days ago. I know Blogger has been acting up and I'm sure Dee meant to post it. I'm stealing it to use as the announcement that this round is officially complete! Everyone has the start of what will be the Round 4 rows now. Way to go ladies!!! -Misha

Misha's Row for Dee

Well, it was a long time coming but here they are! The mailing deadline for this round is next weekend. I know some have already mailed and others are very close to mailing (like me!)

I had a really hard time making a decision about both the block, and later about the center fabric.

I finally decided that Morning Star from Quilter's Cache would offer the best opportunity to use most of the fabrics Dee included in her kit. I have to say "most" because in the end I didn't use the 2nd neutral.

I was so on the fence about it that I posted it on my MishaMichele blog and put it to a vote. Between the comments on the blog and also comments on FaceBook the final tally was 11 for Fabric A, vs 6 for Fabric B. Dee declined to vote, LOL.

Here's a peek at all 3 rows now, which will be on their way to Rebecca in the next few days!
