Sheila I really like the quilting design on your bottle cover.

I have three friends I have not seen for years coming to sew with me on Thursday so have been making a real effort to sort out my Happy Room, it is already looking better makes me want to sew and mess it up again!

Sheila, your wine tote is really nice.  Do you know that a clean sewing area is a sign of  a sick mind so you are safe?!  LOL   Your friend would love to get some pillows with that design on it I'm sure.  I think next up with be the teapots.  I really need to start quilting some of these tops or I will be inundated with them again.

Oh, my! Just realized how messy that table is...

Here's the pic of our project from Saturday. It's a wine tote done with edge to edge quilting (on the embroidery machine). There are 6 repetitions of the star quilting design (I used a poly variegated thread). Then the "charm" star was done entirely in the hoop with batting & organza (reversible). What fun - even with the clueless lady.

Not sure what hit me Saturday afternoon & evening. Spent most of Sunday in & out of bed. Up & down every few hours last night and woke up with a soaked nightgown, sheet, and pillow! I hear there's another bug going around. Still not feeling great but, better.

Janet, it's kind of funny you should be working on that right now. A co-worker is getting married in Jamaica and I thought I'd use that center design on a couple of toss pillows for her.

Cute, Janet. That's the perfect fabric for the borders. Don't you love it when you have the right piece at the right time?

Diana, some of the quilt shops have last years' RXR kits or patterns available if you ask. I didn't collect many last year and still have 2015 rows to do so I don't think I'll collect any this year. I love to see what the different shops are doing though.

Thanks Diana.  Our weather has been all over the place lately.  It does turn nice in the afternoon though so I'm not complaining.

Janet your quilt top is looking good, makes we wish for nice weather, we are going through a cold spell here in the UK.

I finally got around to making a quilt top using the summer blocks some of us made a few years ago.  I had some of the blue "water" fabric left over from my beach themed row robin we did with the Piece Around the World group so I was able to use it in this top as well.  Now I just need to decide how to quilt it.  I should take it to the meeting of the new group I just joined when we get together on Wed to see what suggestions everyone there might have. 

I had originally intended for the border fabric to be used on my row robin, but after I got it in the mail I discovered it was really more like a panel so I set it aside.  It worked perfectly for this little quilt though.  I'm happy I bought enough so that all of the swimmers could be cut in such a way that none of them would be swimming "sideways".  LOL

I might pick up some of the instructions from shops close to me, but don't know how many I will actually get made.

Plans for the 2017 Row by Row have been announced and I still have not made all the designs I want to from last years. Anyone else on here taking part? I understand there were some in the USA that were EM based.. I would have loved those.
