ROW SWAP STARTS THE ROUNDS
I managed to get the first row of the row swap I'm in mailed this week. I wasn't going to join the swap (who me? LOL!) until I realized I could make it one of the quilts I want to make this year anyway.
A dinosaur quilt for a DGS was on my list and I decided to go with it. The first row is the black background part. I used Sindy's Dino Rawr pattern on fatcats. The fabric behind it will be the borders on this bunk sized quilt. The seven rows will be the center of the quilt.
We each chose our theme and made our starter row. Then we included some fabric, and sent it on. We will make one row for each of the seven swappers. It's all a secret after the first row, so I won't know what gals come up with until next January, when it comes back to me.
The dino footprint fabric is what I included, as well as scraps from my dinosaurs. The teeth (or is that spine?) fabric will be narrow border or binding, and the large dinosaurs print is for border.
I really enjoy coming up with something for the other gals. The first quilt I will be making a row for is chocolate themed. The next is a garden. And so on. We have 6 weeks to make a row and send it on. Fun! But I won't be able to post about what I made for each quilt, because it's a secret for the owner, when she gets them all back.
