Here is the picture of my row by row quilt top. I think some of the middle rows were a little bit smaller, but I think I have managed to "fudge it" OK.

I took this to work to show my friends there and they were all very impressed with the beautiful work everyone has done.

I must say I am too, thank you to everyone who has worked a row for my quilt it will be lovely, and Linda also provided me with a cushion to match her row ( the final one) .

As we were swap partners in the Garden Swap that was her gift to me. She should receive her gift in a couple of days :)

Ted's last row.

Finally Ted, I have your row finished and almost ready for posting.

When I read that you would like Thimbleberries fabric if possible, I knew I had only one piece of Thimbleberries fabric , Pansy Park. (A border print ) I checked out the colour preferences you had included and thought that this would fit with the fabric. I then went shopping and bought some toning fabrics.

The patterns for the 5 birdhouses were from the Quilter's Cache website BUT they were all 4" blocks - not to worry, I used the Pansy Park fabric and interspersed trees and pansy swags with the birdhouses to give the feeling that the birdhouses were, hidden among the trees. The row feels busy and leafy. You could be forgiven for thinking that a bird will pop into view.

Hope you like what I have done.

Jane and Sharyn's Rows arrived together :o)

Thank you both so much, aren't I lucky to get two together? And aren't they great? Everything is looking very Christmassy around here, and I am decking the halls with boughs of holly and wishing you a merry little christmas now. okay I'll stop singing now :o) The design wall hangs in my living room so although I wont be able to complete the quilt in time for Christmas I will be able to ebjoy all the rows so far.

I am feeling very smug today, thank you both, thank you all :o)

Farmgirl's Leaves Row

I really enjoyed this row. The leaf design is from Compuquilt BUT the instructions were for making with templates (Who has time for that!!!) Soooo I have drawn up an 8" square and then cut all squares and half square triangles and pieced MOST of the block that way, the large point is paper-pieced (Just the 3 pieces) and then the squares were stitched by the quick piecing method. By doing it that way I found that I was able to cut fabric more efficiently and piece more time efficiently. For me the effect is probably better than if I had cut and pieced using the template patterns.

Including Jane's fabric, I also used 3 reds and a white on white in every block. I wanted the red on white print to make the leaves look as if they are in the process of skeletonising. (That Idea came because I had been thinking about working out in the garden, and I often find skeletonised or partially skeletonised leaves in the front garden.)

Hope you like the row Jane.

Linda, finally finished! Phew! I am pleased with how it turned out although you may wish to adjust the top row slightly, I'll leave it to you as it will depend on the length of the next row you are attaching to it.

Several of my rows are slightly different lengths so I'll be easing them together :o)

Pink tulips as requested :o) I hope you like them.

Now my next row id for Belle, hmmm, time to put my thinking cap on again.

Lyndas Flower Row by Menindee


DiT's Row

Finally here is Di's row. The pattern is Carnival from the Quilter's Cache. It is all paper pieced, BUT somehow I seem to have made 2 of the blocks twirl in the opposite direction. Do you want me to redo them Di and post them on later? There were quite a few pieces in each block but the pattern goes really well with the other blocks in Di's row. I chose this pattern because it was exhibition time when I received the Diary to start the row. The dark blue I chose to represent the night sky and the twirling wheels, represent the Ferris wheel and other whirling rides at the show AND the fireworks that are so much a part of the evening entertainmet there.

Hope you like the row DI.

Jam-Mam's Aussie Christmas row

Jam-mam's Aussie Christmas Row
Finally I have finished the work on Jam-mam's row. (Jammy don't read any further if you want to be surprised when your parcel arrives)I chose to do an Australian Christmas theme with native flowers - (most flowering about Christmas time) for the first and last blocks. Then, a "Carols by Candlelight" block, a surfing Santa block, a decorated Queenslander is the final choice for block 4. In all I used over 30 different Christmas fabrics to 'paint' my blocks. Most of the applique is buttonhole applique, with the exception of the centre block. I have used embroidery, and beads to embellish the blocks just a little. Hope you like it Jacqui.

Hi all :o)

Here is Hope's row. Magnolia Buds pattern from Quilter's Cache, but I did them in yellows so I hope they look like rose buds too. I saw someone else has used the same pattern so I nearly changed (again) at the last minute, but they were nearly finished so i decided to carry on, they are far from quilting perfection if you look closely, so Hope, don't look too closely :o)

Menindee's Rows

Row x Row Group 1

Have just finished Kates Pieced row. She mentioned in her book that she loved red roses, so I decided to make her some. I chose the Magnolia Bud block, but lets pretend its a rose! :D
I absolutely love Kates rows so far- they are so beautiful! I would never have chosen those particular colours myself, but now I see them all together- its great! :D
I hope you like your row Kate :)

Ronnies Pieced Row 6

Well I was having trouble coming up with things for quilters then I read an article by a quilter whose cat was her "Quilt Inspector". I spent several hours perusing cat blocks before chancing on Ronnies row and finding out she is a dog owner. Luckily I had a great material which jumped immediately to mind as poodle fur. I don't know how well it shows in the pic but it is black on black swirls.

Hope's Row 5

This is Hope's Row 5. The photograph isn't brilliant and doesn't show the true colours. I should have also highlighted the buttons (bees, butterflies and flowers) but forgot!! I'm glad Hope likes it.
