Another Row

This is my latest round in the Row Robin I am participating in. The way these row robins work is that in our group (we have seven people) each person makes a row of a specified length. Our group decided on a 48 inch width for each row. Then we pass the row to the next person and they add a new row. Then to the third person who adds a row and so forth. The rows then go back to the first person who arranges them in whatever order they like and finishes up their quilt. These are Ellen's rows. She is defiantly an overachiever. The three top feathered stars are her inspiration row.The next row was done by Hilda and added a wonderful compliment to Ellen's stars. Then the bottom row is the one I made. I love these stars and love to use them in lots of different quilts. Well I hope that Ellen likes them when this comes back home to her. Now I have to figure out what I am going to do for Pat's Row Robin which is already here waiting for my row.

Hi...I just stumbled on to your blog and HAD to forward it on to my Mom and Sister. I am not a quilter, but, having family that quilt, I do appreciate this art form. In fact, I went to the big quilting show in Sisters, Oregon. Wow!
I have added a link to your blog from my blog.
I have a hair shear and surgical instrument sharpening service - 28 years. In fact, last weekend I visited my Mom and sharpened and polished her Gingher shears. I put the original edge on the top blade and then polish both blades so that it will slide right through the fabric. It really helps with fabric that snags easily.
Keep posting your beautiful work and tips.

The quilt is going to be gorgeous. I love the idea of a "row robin!"
