Row swap

I think I'll leave you today with a much nicer photo than the ones I shared in my last post. LOL! These are the rows I've received so far in my row swap. I have 3 more rows to make and hopefully I'll get them done today so I can mail tomorrow. I'm home with an ear infection which is making me dizzy enough I don't think I should drive but hopefully I'll be able to sew without any problem.

The top row are the Square in a Square blocks I made. Row 2 was made my Marilyn. I think she said the blocks are called Tea Leaf. Row 3 are Grandmothers Fans made by Barbara. Row 4 Flying Geese from Colette. Row 5 Jacob's Ladder from Barb. And Row 6 are Bear's Paws made by Trish. The Bear's Paw is the "official" block of our group so I'm glad Trish made these single paws for this swap.

I have 3 more rows still to come and then I'll set them with 2" black sashing between the rows followed by a 2" black border all around and a 6" piano keys border with Square-in-a-Square blocks in the corner. It will end up about 64X86 so it will be a nice nap size to curl up under while napping in my chair.

That really popped out at me when I opened up your blog - pinks and purples have got to be my favourite colours. I know this because it's the section I always open up first when I visit 'Thousands of Bolts'.

Hi Nancy
That is a great row quilt. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the progress. Thanks for visiting my blog

Your quilt is looking lovely - and it's so heartening to know someone else makes as much mayhem while creating as I do :o)
