PostSubject: SPRING Row by Row Swap   Tue May 01, 2018 10:36 am

Anybody still on board? We have Spring and Fall left so I started with Spring because , well, you know, it's Spring! lol!
I designed two rows. They will get additional detailing after I applique them down. I did already paint in a few details. I have the patterns uploaded and ready to share whenever someone else get a row designed.

Here are my two rows:


Hope y'all like them.

If y'all want a deadline how about until the end of May? Roughly a month, is that good?

I feel totally lost TxM. Is this something that's been discussed on here, if so I must have missed it. Does everyone have to design a row? I would like to participate but design skills are pitiful.

Jill each person designs a row, then shares their design. Its to encourage us to stretch our wings and create our own designs and look at the pretties TxMary has created. You dont have to do applique, you could do a pieced row, its just some fun and we get to make a quilt with designs our friends created, simple, fancy - it doesnt matter. Its about friendship and memories and fun Very Happy

Here is the basic info from the first one which was easter themed

"Ok, so what we are planning is that each person will design a row for a quilt, doesnt matter how high it is as long as its 30 1/2" long. It can be applique, pieced, I guess even embroidered (?). Then we will share the designs with the others who have joined in and each person will make their own rows for their own quilt. Its going to mean gluing or taping some paper together to get the length depending what style you choose to use when designing your row and then we will have to post the pattern for our rows to each other, others like Marynel who use software I guess would be able to email their design?  

Once you have designed your row, you will need to make it and photograph it, post the photo in the topic so everyone can see your row and have fun seeing the designs being created. Its not hard, grab a pencil, draw some eastery things, trace stuff out of colouring books or online sources if you need some help to get your shapes how you want it, piece a row, just have fun, get creative and help design our very own quilt!  Why not design your own row, you dont need to be a graphic artist to participate, you just need some Easter ideas and be willing to have some fun."


All you need to remember is the width being 30 1/2"  the rest is up to you. There are lots of applique shapes and colouring pages you could use to help you create your design if you dont want to draw, pieced patterns, embroidery - let your imagination run wild, what does spring mean to you?  Once we draw out our design (I tape printer paper together to get the right width) then we scan them and share the scans. Its quick and cost free, just email your scanned design or row instructions to each other person who is swapping.  Each person uses whatever colours and fabrics they personally like, they embellish if they want, add things, omit things etc. You dont have to use the rows you get exactly as they are, we often combine row ideas into one. Sometimes someone might get a run and design 3 or 4 rows they share, you are not expected to use them all

Here are pics of some of the ones we have done so far, I cant find the winter one, perhaps TxMary has a pic she could share as these are all TxMarys quilts.

I must have this swap confused with the Christmas one we did and the summertime one a few years back. I can't commit to doing this one. Maybe next time.

I'll do something springish some other time. I'm feeling swamped. I have 3 of my own quilts started and a bunch using my gifted materials.
