row10

I'm in a virtual quilting bee with 9 other fabulous quilters. Each month we make a row 60" long for one of the members. Each member gets to choose their theme/colors when it is their month.

The first month was my month, and I haven't made my row yet. hee hee. I asked for a Christmas theme in red and lime with hints of pink, green and white. The rows that everyone made are amazing. I need to lay them all out and take a picture.

The second month was Calamity Kim's month. She asked for a gnome/forest theme. Here is the row that I made for her:

row10 - kim


The third month was for Tia. She asked for red and white cross blocks with tiny hints of aqua.

row10 - tia


Next up is Upstatelisa's month, and she has requested Gee's Bend inspired rows in muted solids. I'm looking forward to it!

and just because I'm a curious bird (anyone read the pigeon books by
mo
Mo Willems?), how many bees/block swaps/swaps are you in? I'm in two - row10 and placemat quilt swap. Some of you are in a lot!

I am not in any yet (I hope to be someday!), but I have signed up for a vintage sheet swap. My first swap of anything! I love love love each of these rows, what a brilliant idea to exchange rows of a quilt! Both of the ones you pictured were just awesome.

You know, I've joined two, sent off my block and waited...and waited...and never got anything. So, I don't try it anymore. On the other hand, I sometimes find blocks that I don't exactly remember making, so it's sort of a swap!

Oh my goodness - I love the little mushrooms and gnomes! Also, I can very much identify the homeschool mom trying to balance school with personal (quilting) time. If only there were more ways to work school into a sewing machine.
