My Round Robin

I am so happy with how my round robin turned out!  The ladies in my group did an awesome job.  My block is the mariner’s compass in the middle with the striped border.

I passed it on to Susan who set my block on point and added those gorgeous corners that look just like my block.  Then Dolores added that wonderful checkerboard border.  Mary Ann was next and she did the flying geese border.  I love flying geese and was so happy to see them included in the quilt.  Ada finished it off with the colorful piano key border with the wonderful black with white polka dot fabric.

I love the look of it and haven’t decided if I want to add to it or not.  It was really fun to see all of the other round robins revealed that night too.  You might recognize the first four as they are ones I worked on and posted on here.

If you ever have the chance to do a round robin I encourage you to do so.  They are lots of fun and they stretch you to be creative.  And in the end it is so fun to see what everyone did with your quilt!

Wow! Love all the round robin quilts. That is an amazing group of participants. Each of the themes were well thought about in including the borders. RR are my favorite type of quilt and I love the challenge of determining the next border.

Thanks for sharing the process and results on your blog.
