This Month''s Round Robin Border is Done!


Here is the finished border I added to Gerda's lovely oriental Round Robin. I love the way this one looks! I hope her daughter, for whom she started this round, likes it as much as I enjoyed working on my border for her. This one still has two more borders to be added before it makes its way home to Canada. It will be a bed-size quilt by then. This was the first time I have worked on a rectangular medallion, with a clear up and down.


My own Round Robin is growing, too ... but I have not seen it yet. I like to be surprised in the end so I had the swap hostesses on the Quilt & Needle place the photos of mine in the non-peekers album. It is difficult sometimes not to look but I know how much I will enjoy seeing the completed top when it arrives home, so I will resist.


I am planning to working on a project for me next ... a quilt kit I bought at a local quilt shop. Usually I do not buy kits but this one was so colorful and bright and the fabrics are so gorgeous that I could not improve on the design. Pictures of these fabrics coming soon ... to be followed soon thereafter, I hope, by the actual top and quilt!
