6 More H2O Rows Done

I have completed 6 more Water Row by Row strips. The raindrops pattern is from Piece by Piece Quilt Shop in Eugene, Oregon. The pieced sailboats are from Aunt Sassy's Quilts in Geneva, Illinois. The "Rub-a-Dub Dub" is from Prairie Shop Quilts in Batavia, Illinois. I made changes to the tub pattern, I used a curved tub lip, instead of the straight row stitching, that made the water look like it was sitting on top of the tub. I wanted the water to sit inside the tub. I also did not use the sailboat fabric for a shower curtain on the left side, I just continued the black and white check for the tiled wall. Most of the shops are out of the sailboat fabric which was made for the challenge.
These blocks I made yesterday and today, the top row is from Something to Crow About in Springfield, Oregon. The crow is their mascot and looks great with the umbrella and Wellies. The waterwheel blocks are made with different fabric in each block. I have not sewn them together, because I might need some rows to be used vertically. The cute turtle row is from Sew Cute Quilt Shop in Dillard, Oregon. I made the larger turtles a bit larger and made 3 instead of two. I think the hills are not in the right places either and I added extra coral. The Alaska style salmon row is from The Fabric Farm in Drain, Oregon, I made 3 instead of two fish. I like the odd number better. But I really like the bold graphic quality, and contrast was important here. I am having lots of fun making these, I have saved a few more difficult ones for later. Tomorrow the big "Quilt, Knit, Stitch" show in Portland, several of our artists from Fyber Cafe are going up together.
