I'm On Board

26 comments
Since I finished the London 2012 quilt I have been planning a new quilt for my daughter Tracey.  But I haven't picked out the fabric yet and I'm giving the design some thought.  I really should be not be working on an interim project because I have previously started projects I would really like to fit back in my groove.  However....
All the cool girls are working on Lori's new row by row project.  So of course I want to get on board.  You can see the first row instructions here.  I worked on it this weekend using my favorite colors and some mini prints.
Lori always has great ideas about time saving tips and she looks at projects in a different way.  Her method did work out perfectly just like Pam said it worked for her.  I mean come on.  If Lori, Pam and Tricia (among other friends) are doing it, how could I pass it by?
But really, I've been mostly not sewing and doing lots of this.  Sweet, huh.

I've been trying to think how I can possibly fit in another project, so I may be joining Lori late. Kissing on grandbabies absolutely comes first!

Hi, Baby Eliza - you're getting so big and how can you possibly be getting cuter????

Extremely sweet, and I don't blame you! But those rows are mighty cute, too.

Very sweet indeed!
I don't blame you for joining in the row quilt fun. Looks like lost of fun.

Karen H said...

Love your row by row. Such pretty colors. I think maybe I should join in, too. And that granddaughter is just the sweetest! :)

Thimbleanna said...

VERY sweet! How can you possibly get much quilting done with an adorable baby hanging around???

Bev said...

What a gorgeous baby! Just ADORABLE!

I love your colors! I'm doing the Row Along too! I also like your background fabric! I'm using polka dots. I'm having a blog giveaway and as I was putting pictures of the giveaway fabrics on the blog, I thought I might use those and do a second Row Along quilt. With two weeks between rows, it might be possible...hummmm...

Thanks for sharing! I love seeing what everyone is doing!

Hi love that butterfly quilt how fun I especially like because it's scrappy good job

pratima said...

Nanette, this seems like a carefree, enjoy the stash kind of quilt-along which is totally fun! I like the colors of your squares and also the butterflies are cute! They have their own personality even if they look different than the original :)
Happy quilting!
