I finally got around to doing my row for the start of the Row Robin group I am participating in. I decided to keep it fairly simple. I love the look of scrappy quilts and thought this would be a great Opportunity to begin one of my own. I will provide the off white ( see earlier post) to be used in the background along with my row so the team members should have lots of choice as to what they'd like to add. Simple blocks, applique.........whatever they most like to do.
I don't very often do traditional blocks and there may be a good reason for that...............me and numbers, we just don't get along. The group has been asked to keep our rows somewhere in the neighbourhood of 40 - 44 inches in length. I thought that seven of these 6" blocks would be perfect, 7 x 6" = 42" right? Well yes, except that I put them on point and totally forgot that the measurement changes ( they were now actually 8" blocks) so my 7 block row ended up measuring 57" needless to say I had to do a bit of un-sewing. This is the row that will be handed off at our guild meeting next week.
The Creative Prompt project continues with this week's word, Opportunity and when it comes knocking you might want to be quick to unlock the door so I doodled this key.
