Crazy Birds

I have been busy paper piecing my row for the Round Robin that Barb has organized. I have finally decided on my theme. It will be 'Seascapes'. I am still debating how wide to make the starting row. The length of this row will dictate every other row in the quilt. I don't want it to be too wide because I think I will make a wall hanging when all the rows are done. I was thinking that 40 inches would be a good width. But that makes it difficult for others who might want to do a 9 or 12 inch block. I am still thinking. Got any ideas?

Are you making a round robin or a row robin? My Wacky quilting group is doing a row robin. I am making mine 48" wide. I will be anxious to watch the progress of yours. I like what you have done already!

Those are adorable! No ideas but I can't wait to see it finished.

NICE job on the birds. Make your starting row the way YOU want it and the others have to make their blocks fit....same way you have to make blocks fit on THEIRS when you get their rows. Don't change the width you want just because you worry they may find it a bit of a challenge!!!

wow....I love them....you did a fantastic job. I gave you permission to add to the ends of my rows with blue if you needed to.

Adorable birds. I think you should do it the size you want, because otherwise you will be unhappy with the end result. I don't think people will have a hard time following your lead.
