It’s a party! Back in April a group of us signed up for this Round Robin hosted by Michele at Quilts from my Crayon Box. Well it is time for us to show our finished pieces!
When I got home from my big trip two days ago my piece was here waiting for me. I hadn’t seen even a glimpse of it since I made it at the April quilt retreat and mailed it off to Leslie so she could add to it.
Since then seven people have added to it and it has come back to me looking like this.
I think it is fantastic! The ladies all wrote me a little note letting me know what they contributed.
So let’s have a closer look… Leslie added the pink and black borders. Margaret (no blog) added the multi-coloured stripe. Doris added the fantastic saw-tooth border. I love how it frames two corners but not the other two. Sharon added the green and yellow border; again I love the creative way she put it together. Tiffany added the skinny pink border. Ann added the blue with the darker corner and centre blocks. Then Sam, bless her keenness, added the checkerboard and the solid.
I’m really not sure what I am going to do with it now. I had thought it would be a table topper but it is quite large and wouldn’t compliment my oval table at all. I’m still considering options – please feel free to make suggestions.
Don’t forget the Canadian Blog Hop that starts on Monday. You can locate the posts by clicking on the Sew Sisters Quilt Shop button or the Blogathon Canada button on my sidebar.

so cute, such a lot of work went into your borders, gorgeousReplyDelete
That is magnificent! What a great concept for a Round Robin! The things people come up with never cease to amaze me!ReplyDelete
ooh! love it xReplyDelete
Really turned out fantastic. I think a wall hanging, where you can see and admire it each day, would be a great idea. That is what I'm going to do at least. Thanks for playing and please link up to the party on my blog.ReplyDelete
Your RR looks great. It is sew nice receiving projects made by many talented ladies..ReplyDelete
I love my goat that traveled around the world and was stitched by many...
I love the combinations that you ended with a very eye catching pieceReplyDelete
Thank you for working on my mini! I love what you all added to mine so much. I was hoping you'd like me pulling the pink back out the edge but it didn't seem right to finish with a checkerboard border for some reason. :DReplyDelete
Love this one!ReplyDelete
This turned out terrific, Janet! Each border is unique and just what was needed. Wasn't this a fun journey?ReplyDelete
