My projects are shown below this list. I hope they inspire you.

This Row Along was a most exciting adventure for me. 
It was the 3rd time I participated in any type of blog hop.
It was the first time I have designed more than "just a block" to share with others.

While I met only one of the 20 designers in person (Reeze Hanson when I took 3 classes from her during the AQS show in August) I feel like I did meet each of them. Via the internet, we shared many ideas, questions and answers, and a good deal of very useful information that got us unstuck a few times. 

Marian Pena did so much to organize this Row Along. She had the help of Amy and Bea. The sponsors that promoted this wonderful event need to be thanked beyond measure. 

Be sure to read past my project post
to find out about the wonderful giveaways 
we have for our visitors during this last week 
of the Row Along
They are fantastic!

Here, now, are the projects I designed using various blocks and rows. 

My Welcome Spring banner
is 44" wide by 46" long.
I paper pieced the airplane from Carla at Creatin' in the Sticks
and added my own cloud design.
Carol at FunThreads Designs designed the butterfly.
Darlene at Quilt Shop Gal had a cute bird to sit on my fence.
After a long winter, the squirrel is a bit skinnier than Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts
had designed, but he fits nicely in the space on my fence.
The chicks and grass paper piecing are from Jennifer at Sew Hooked.

 I designed the birdhouse in EQ7 as a paper pieced block.



My vine is wide rick-rack, glued down with permanent fabric glue.
I used "silk" flowers from the craft store which I took apart 
so I had single layers of petals. 
I glued them down on top of the leaves that came with the flowers. 
I glued some beads in the center for a bit of glitz.
I had some pebble fabric for the chicks to walk scratch in. 
I finished the quilt with mitered borders and blue binding.

I want to thank my longarm quilter, Michelle Fialek, 
who does such a wonderful job of making my quilts look spectacular. 

I  made a bed runner for the queen bed in our guest room. 
It measures 60" long x 23" wide.


Again, I used the butterfly from Carol at FunThreads Designs
I searched EQ7 using the notecards to find other butterfly patterns
that I appliqued with fusible web. 
I used my fence block pattern with appliqued flowers and leaves on the vines
and yo-yo flowers on the fence posts centers.
The grassy area was made after reading about the filler rows 
The binding was a fun multi-colored flower fabric that had all the
 colors from the bed runner in it.
Below is a photo taken straight on so you can see the design better. 


I have more projects in the works and will post them as I finish them.
You have until October 31 to get my block free HERE.

  5. Your quilt turned out so cute by using several different pieces of the rows. Using your row as a bed runner is a great idea! I love how beautiful it looks! What a perfect way to use some of those other rows, too.

  10. I really like how you used blocks to make a picture rather than sewing up rows. Both of your quilts turned out so nice!
