I've never participated in a round robin before, but when Bea from "BeaQuilter" posted she was hosting one, I jumped right in.
I bet your not "even" surprised that my block had a moose on it!
Moose and fusible applique. Two of my favorites.
This made it's way to 5 fabulous quilters to add their spin to my block.
Never in a million years did I expect for it to come back looking like this!
Is this just not the greatest?
I'm in awe...it's just incredible.
These gals really "get" me!
Best yet... this was supposed to take 6 months to complete.
Thanks to all, I got mine back almost 2 months early.
Whoop whoop. I guess everyone was as excited as I was,
to add their round and send it on.
Here is what I got to work on for the others.
In June I got Carol's scrappy center block.
She wanted scrappy...so I pieced a scrappy log cabin round for her.
July brought me our "fabulous" leader, Bea's quilt.
She wanted a Christmas theme quilt for her church.
Some simple piecing, picking colors from the quilt in progress,
I then appliqued the Christmas message around it.
August was Carol's second scrappy quilt.
Yes, she loves these round robins "sew" much that she had 2 quilts going! This time was scrappy hearts and she wanted some black and whites in it. I added the top and bottom hearts to her quilt.
September I had Julianne's gorgeous Christmas quilt.
It was so rich looking. The fabrics were just gorgeous.
I added the Snails Trail blocks around this one.
(Shakespeare in the Park, with all the Snail's Trail
blocks is on my to-do list)
October brought me Rebecca's, book theme quilt.
I did a little research online and came up with 68
book titles I could embroider to add to the final
round of blocks on her quilt.
I learned a good lesson on this one...
Wanna know just why it is, that writers have proofreaders?
OMG, I couldn't believe that I did this.
Glad I caught it before I stitched it in.
As for my beauty...it's not quilted yet, but when I do...
I've got this quilt label to remember these wonderful gals with!
A big thanks to all who participated.
You girls are just the greatest, and
I'm thrilled to have been a part of it all!
Rumor has it, there just might be another one after the first of the year. Wouldn't you love to join in?
