Still Rowing...

I completed row 12 - little sewing baskets - I love them!  We're nearing the end of this row along and I truly cannot wait to see the finished quilt!

In between, I've been participating in Moda's Friendship Quilt Along.  I've completed 12 blocks so far!  I'm using two rolie polies (Verona and Avignon) supplemented by a few half yard cuts of Verona that I purchased along with the rolie polie.  I haven't decided if I'm going to do all of the blocks yet or just pick and choose. 
I've also been doing the Scrappy Trip Around the World!


Some more finishes for 2012...

I never had a chance to take a picture of this one:

 Pieced backing...

This chair belonged to my grandmother and I'm pretty sure it belonged to her mother.

I have a few more, but haven't gotten any pics yet.

So I ordered some fabric from Missouri Star Quilt Company.  Like most companies, they send emails to confirm the order, and then let you know they've shipped the order.  This is their shipping notification:

"Thanks for your order at the Missouri Star Quilt Company!
We just want to let you know that your quilting supplies have been meticulously gathered, placed on a red velvet pillow, and delicately escorted by 25 of our finest employees to our shipping department.
Our master shipper has dutifully performed his craft, lovingly packing your order in the finest materials known to man.
Our team gathered to give your package the proper send-off it deserved. Tears of joy were shed, speeches were given, and there was even a farewell cake. Following the festivities, the whole group, led by our local high school marching band playing the song Leaving on a Jet Plane, ushered your order through downtown Hamilton, Missouri. No, we don't own a Jet Plane, but your package was placed in the care of a roguishly handsome man who is riding in a majestic horse-drawn carriage which is on its way to your home as you read this.
Although the products you've ordered will be sorely missed here at MSQC, we are overjoyed that they have found a good home. Take care of them, treasure them, and when you make something beautiful with them, make sure you share it with us on facebook / twitter or just send us an email, we love to see what you make!."

How cute is that?!  Made me laugh out loud!

Just Rowing-Along



I just had to lay out all the rows -this is just too cute! 

 I'm also having a blast with the Scrappy Trip Around the World!

I need to make way more blocks!
