3rd Row of Row Robin

Things are moving along nicely. Today I did the cutting for both quilts that Momma Newbie (thanks 32.5 for mom's new handle...she loves it...lol)

This is the fabric and the pattern that Momma Newbie will be working with tomorrow to add to my quilt.

And this is the fabric and the pattern that I will be working with to add to Momma Newbie's quilt.

Today was a great day. I spent some of the day working on the quilts and watching the Inauguration of Barack Obama. History in the making....one of those moments that years from now you say...I remember when......I was....... So often that sentence is said when it is something sad like 9/11. I remember I was walking into work when 32.5 met me in the hallway and said the Twin Towers have been hit by planes. It's wonderful to have a happy "I remember where I was when..." momment.

OK, have you already mastered the 7/8" measurement??...if so you need to teach me. I refuse to make any quilt that has any eighth of an inch measurement in the directions.
Yesterday was a really nice day for the American People; I hope it gives them the encourgement to make things better for us all. Ah, I remember 9/11 too well....we spent the day watching TV, looking at CNN, staring at the sky and smoking way to many cigarettes! I don't think it was a productive work day for anyone.
PS, I really like the fabric choices! Happy sewing to you and Momma Newbie today!

Oh, the Ribbon star block is one of my very favorites--so many looks depending on the placement of light and dark, but still a simple block!

Lookin' good!
