Diane's Round Robin is finished

I finished Diane's round robin this weekend. I really wanted to try something new. So I thought I would use some bias tape and try a celtic knot. I practiced on one piece and it was a little too challenging, so I decided to tone it down by using one of my quilting templates and modified it a bit to come up with what you see here.

I went to Bakersfield to meet up with Darlene, Deb & Trisha. I took a picture of all of us with this round robin top but I accidentally deleted it before I downloaded it on to my computer. YIKES!
Trisha, Deb & I all worked on this round. Diane will have to send me a picture from here camera that has one of the photos of us all with her top. It turned out so nicely. I hope you like it Diane!!

Sharon's row almost ready to mail off!!

This is Sharon's Row finally!!! I ran out of time yesterday to actually sew it on the existing row. I will get to it this week and at the latest, mail on to Kathy on Friday. This was so much fun to do. I love the Mariner's Compass.
This picture is from the camera that has no flash, so it isn't the best quality. I still have not found the cord for the good digital camera. Erich (DS#1) said he can get the pictures off the card if I need to. So After I sew this row onto the existing rows, I will take a decent picture and upload it for Sharon to see!!

Inspiration for quilts

Last night, I got Sharon's row robin out and spread it out  for
inspiration. I had a light go off when I looked at the row again....
Oh you are gonna like what I am planning. I then searched my
stash for the perfect fabric...HA I could not find the color I want. So
I sheepishly told/asked my DH "I might need to go get more fabric for
this row, if that is alright"....Do you know what his comment was? At
first he said ok fine, then he said, "What about the ton of fabric you
already have?" HA HA LOL I just smiled and said I have been a good
girl for about 6 months now and I NEED
(if you don't understand the NEED then you aren't a quilter)
to buy more fabric that is perfect for this row!

Thanks Sharon for the excuse to buy fabric!!

So I am going to go buy some more fabric in the next few days

Sharon's row as I received it

This is a picture of Sharon's row from my Yahoo! group, Stashbuilders' ROW ROBIN. ( She has not seen it since it left her pretty little hands. I received this in the mail the day before we started moving so I had to put it on hold. It will be late mailing on to the next person. Isn't it adorable?
I kept telling her I would post a picture. First I could not find the camera. Today I found the camera and took some pictures for Sharon. When it came time to download the pictures I could not find the cable. UGH! I looked high and low. I found it...or so I thought. I found a cable to another camera. HHmmm. I know I saw that other camera around here....Found it! So now all I have to do is take more pictures with a camera that has no flash!! This is the best I can do for now. I will get another better picture once my row is complete and ready to mail off!!.
