Row By Row Quilt Exchange

Boy, time does fly.  It seems ages since I last posted.  Well, I have been keeping very busy with one thing or another.

One of the quilt groups I belong to is doing a row by row quilt exchange.  We each picked a theme, created one row, and passed it on to the others to complete.  It is a challenge since many of us have very differing tastes, and we have to create rows we would ordinarily not choose for ourselves.  I chose the theme “houses, flowers, & blocks”.  I made my rows from blocks found in the book Applique Quilt Revival. Can you tell I’m into ’30s vintage?


And here is a row I did for my friend Donna.  Actually, I did two rows, since I wanted to incorporate the vintage Santa Panel I had.  Donna chose the theme  Vintage Christmas.  I loved how the rows came out.  I found another vintage Santa panel on Ebay, so I can make a similar quilt for myself one day – another quilt added to my long list of “want to make” quilts.
