PostSubject: 4th of July Row by Row   Sun Jul 03, 2016 3:25 pm

I am enjoying these row by Rows so much that I would like to do a 4th of July one. It seems to be a bit of an overlooked holiday for swaps, mostly because not all of our members are I the U.S. But I talked to Helen and she doesn't mind if we do one. And I am sure our other Aussie members will understand too. Is anyone else interested? Same rules as the other RxRs.

1.) One (maybe two) rows to design and share with other RxR participants.
2.) We are swapping designs only, not finished work.

If we get any takers, I will set a cutoff date. I know it is too late to have for this 4th of July but will be great to have for next year. Let me know. Very Happy

No problem. Just thought I'd put it out there. I have enough ideas to do one for myself when I finish the Halloween one.

TXM I will design one or two for the 4th of July but since the holiday is passed now, how about if we give ourselves a little more time? I like doing the rows but the last few have been with very short completion dates. I'd like to try and get some of the ones we've done made up. What do ya think?

I am not starting it right away...same reason, I have the summer and Halloween to finish. I want them at least appliqued. Helen designed a row with Uncle Sam hats just so you know not to do that. She doesn't have 4th of July but wanted to do a pattern. Obviously, she won't be making the quilt. I have a ton of ideas so let me know what you decide on so I don't duplicate again! lol!

It's funny, but I like the shorter completion dates. Especially when all we really are doing is designing, not sewing. Sometimes I think things go on foreeeeever. I know most people prefer the longer time frames. Guess I am weird, maybe a little A.D.D. Probably a lot. azn lmao

Whats happening with this swap? Its good to give some time for everyone to participate but if its goes on too long they get lost and develop cobwebs, remember, you can just design and post you row sketch, you dont have to have a sample made up, its better if you do, more fun but a design is just fine. Here is the row I designed for ya'll, my white fabric is Aussie with eucalypt leaves, had to add an Aussie touch!!

Gimpy, that one is great.
I am not up to sewing right now, but I really want to complete the Winter one before I move on. My local quilting partner and I are planning 4 seasonal quilts. I have the Fall one "Windows on Autumn" planned. She suggested one row should be our mountains (in log cabin format) in their fall coloring. Unfortunately, I will have to force myself to buy some fabric for that.

Years ago, I designed a needlepoint pillow for Mom to make. It was flag toting Teddy bears , called "waiting for the parade" I'll probably redesign that one.

Helen Love your row! I have a few more days of cleaning and then I will try to get one put together!
This hurricane has put me behind in so many ways! Not having a sewing room has too!
