Be My Neighbor

There is one more project I worked on during my productive weekend. Obviously, it wasn’t folding my laundry.

I got the rows sewn together w/sashing…

and the borders added to the Be My Neighbor quilt.

This was my pattern of choice for the Row by Row Round Robin project we started back in November at Quilters Anonymous. I also pieced the backing for this!

I made one row and then passed  it around to the other gals in my small group and they each made a row for me. In return, I did the same for each of them w/a pattern of their choosing.

Here are the rows I made for them. This one is called Painted Ladies.

This one is called Cat City.

The instructions for this was 10.5″ flower blocks. This pattern is called Simple Pansy and is FREE on Craftsy!

And these sweet thangs are from a pattern called A Day to Celebrate.

That’s all Folks!

Be My Neighbor – A “Side” Project

I decided to participate in a RBR activity at QA this year.

QA is Quilters Anonymous, which is a West Valley Chapter of the Arizona’s Quilters Guild, and the chapter I’m a member of.

Our RBR activity shares the same premise as a Round Robin, which is a small group activity where each person in the group contributes a round/row of a quilt for each other person in the group, and in the end, each member ends up w/a finished quilt top.

Our groups consist of 5 members. We each picked the “Row” pattern of our choice and made the first row. We then handed off our pattern, along w/fabric and special instruction to the next person on the list for them to make the next row. Each month we hand off to the next person on the list, and so on and so forth until everyone has done a row for each member, and we all have a completed quilt top.

I chose the Be My Neighbor pattern by Moda.

I’m primarily using Andover, Art Gallery, and Cotton & Steel fabrics.

Here are the blocks I made.

And here they are all sewn together to make my first row.

And here’s my first row w/my dog Moe in the pic.

This is not a complete row as I had to count my trees as separate blocks in order that everyone in my group would have 4 blocks to make. The last person will make the missing blocks from each row and then they’ll all be sewn together.

What a bright and cheerful neighborhood it will be!

If you can help your neighbor now, don’t say, “Come back tomorrow, and then I’ll help you.” Don’t plot harm against your neighbor, for those who live nearby trust you. – Prov‬ ‭3:28-29‬ ‭NLT‬‬
