Below (in blue type) is the copy written by Jennifer Keltner to introduce these two lovely contestants.

Everything old is new again with our next entrant who loves bringing 19th century fabric prints and blocks into the 21st century---please welcome the often imitated, but never replicated Betsy Chutchian wearing her row Bitty Baskets—Appliqued Baskets large and small are interspersed with traditional pieced Duck and Duckling blocks (Also known as Pine Burr –but how much cuter is the image of baby ducklings)you'll want to follow along like little ducklings in a row (get it?) to re-create your own Bitty Baskets row in your quilt.

Ducks in a Row.

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oy Oy Oy—that's the yell that invites in the one, the only Jen Kingwell  wearing her row Meadow Rose row. She was the longest distance contributor for the book and the first to submit her row. You can't keep a good woman who is  passionate about hand-piecing and hand quilting down—she's done both on this garden of patchwork flowers row. When asked if there were any circumstances under which she could not start a new project Jen answered—it's never happened. I start new things all the time. I'm the queen of unfinished projects, I am. Well watch out Jen, I'm betting there's some other royal subjects in the audience vying for that crown too!
