I love to applique, so my starting row was an applique row with bees and flowers. You can see my row in the picture below. It is the center one. Each person then was to provide a row that went along with my stated theme. I did tell them they did not have to do applique, as some expressed concern in doing an applique row. In fact I didn't want all applique. I wanted piecing to offset the applique.
Well you can see I got my wish. I love what each of the ladies came up with. I was so excited to put it all together and love how it came out.
One lady did a row of honey jars. She was so nervous about doing applique, but they turned out very cute. Some button bees were added to sit on or near the jars and then I put the bear trying to get into the jars.
If you have a chance to participate in a row quilt with a group, take that chance. You just don't know what you will come up with.
Keep on Quilting
