At the beginning of the year Julie (aka Floribunda) hosted a round robin. This was my third year of participation. This year there were 16 Round Robineers. Every round robineer starts out with a small block and mails it to Julie by the end of January.
This was my center block.
Next in the mail we received a center block and our instructions were to add a border.
I added a beach and an ocean and sent it off to the next person.
Then I received this block that had a second border added to the center block - the flying geese on neutral background. I was instructed to add a second border. I had a difficult time with this one because the block seemed lopsided to me because the border didn't go all the way around. So I had to ponder long and hard what to add for a second border. My first inclination was to "unlopside" it and continue the flying geese around. But how creative is that?
So, this is what it looked like after I added a second border. I was not completely happy with it because I wanted to even it all out but I tried. And off to the next destination it went.
Then I received this block in the mail with the first and second borders added and I was instructed to quilt and bind it.
So I did a lot of hand quilting. And sent it off home to the maker of the original center block.
Then I received my center block back with first and second borders added and some awesome quilting added. I love my little quilt.
It joins my little quilts from years one and two.
This round robin stuff involves a lot of improv thinking.
So I'm going to do some improv linking:
