When I lived in Pennsylvania I stitched with a group a ladies on the first and third Tues of the month. The Tuesday Quilters are a talented group of quilters who happen to love friendship block exchanges. I moved to Kansas in 2008 but the group has continued to include me in their assortment of exchanges. Most recently we did a row exchange. Each participant determined the theme for their quilt and made the starting row. The project rotated to a new quilter every 6 weeks or so. At each stop a new row was stitched and added to the box. The themes were varied: butterflies and blossoms, southwest, patriotic, coffee, baskets, stars, flower garden, at the beach, and from Kansas – The Wizard of Oz!
My completed rows arrived in the mail the other day (missing two rows but I am optimistic they will show up soon!)
I sent my starter row (on top in the picture) with a box of Wizard of Oz fabric and asked for whimsical. I thought it was easy! But, oh my! The complaining I heard! I even received a poem of complaint!
There once was a quilter named Roz (actually Barb E.)
Who hailed from the land of Oz
Her row theme was a scream,
Which caused us to dream (more like nightmares -JUST KIDDING, really, it’s very cool.)
Therefore, giving us pause for the cause.
They may have whined and they may have fretted but I knew my friends would come through in the end. Just look at their clever work. (click on the image to enlarge)
Thank you Tuesday Quilters! I love my rows!
