Hi everyone, I've finally got around to sorting out out row by row idea. The winning theme was 4 seasons, so if anyone would like to join in with this years ROQ (Row of Quarter rather than Block of Month!) here are the details.
We are going to make a quilt. or set of 4 wallhangings for ourselves, there's no swapping involved in this one. Each quarter, you make one section of the quilt corresponding to the current season. We're still in winter here, so you can start with winter now, or start with spring in March if you prefer.
Each season row should be 6 x 24in finished size. You can choose any design or technique for this panel, you can piece it with blocks or just use one large block, and just have fun. Just make something you like, and that you can carry on with for the other three rows.
There will be three spacer rows which are 3 x 24in, and again you can do whatever you like in those. I am planning to put 3in pieced blocks in mine, but it is up to you.
You can use your rows to build a quilt, or to make a set of seasonal wall hangings if you prefer.
I've made a rough design as an EXAMPLE, this is not what you have to make!

Oh, I get it now...... that explains my query about landscape and portrait from last year!
I offered to try to design a row / season for you.....
My business was called Four Seasons Accountancy but has changed to All Seasons Accountancy since my Mum died - and also to make the time-period covered obvious to myself or any others people who may-be interested in why there is a gap of about 13-18months with no "work" - It's hard to care full time and work full time!
I've sent a PM and FB messages to you too - I'll reflect on this (the 4 seasons row by row) [4srbr] - if we were knitters that might work? ... and draw my initial ideas soon - I don't have EQ.... of any number! Pencil crayons or felt-tips on paper for me.
I suppose I should "do" All Seasons rather than 4 seasons or a block and "filler" rows for the quarter - but I don't want an impossible task!
Must submit MY Self Assessment return........ fairly soon!

That's a lovely idea. It's going to be hard to think of my own idea now!

I like your sample quilt. It is a good idea and the theme can be interpreted lots of different ways to suit all tastes.
I am hoping to take part in this ROQ, I really enjoyed the UR block of the month (mind you I haven't put my blocks together yet ). I need to sort out space and time yet but the nice thing about this is I can work at my own pace.
I may even do it as 4 separate wallhangings, lots of thoughts going round in my head now - no wonder DH thinks I am in a world of my own half the time - I am, it's called Quilter's World
Thanks for organising the idea
