I like my rows. Lots of green, my 2nd favorite color next to red. My border fabric coordinates with all this fabric but it has chickens on it. This is looking more African to me. I think I'm going to rethink my border. Dorothea used real leaves for the patterns of the leave row from a trip Char made to Ohio when her 1st grandchild was born. If you click on any pic it will enlarge and you can see the rows better. Go to Barbara Winder's and look at the appliqued bird row. Thanks again to all the ladies that worked so hard on everyone's quilt. And thanks again to the Jerome Idaho Spudettes for this idea of a Round Robin Row Quilt. If anyone is thinking of doing this as a group activity I would suggest this over a round robin medallion quilt top. Rows are easier to get the measurements correct for a group.

Char paper pieced her flower row. This is a great quilt, so many things that are perfect for Char and great work by each quilter. Her 2nd row is baskets with a yo-yo and button in the middle by Cyndi Natzke, the next row is bright and beautiful stars by Dorothea Knight, the animal row by Barbara Winder ( I hope I got that right) is little appliqued squirrels and snails. Each has a charm hanging from their neck. Next is Sandra Hadley's appliqued cabin in the woods for the house row. Then is Janet Dyk's leaves, Pat Kilpatrick's trees with a little red bird on one tree, next I made canning jars, and two jars are canned frogs, because Char likes frogs. and last Dianah Pfiefle did hearts with Char's favorite fabric. I can't wait to see this one done.
