Round Robin Four

Finished - 57" x 56"

Finished – 57″ x 56″

 

Yesterday I put the final border on my third Round Robin project. Check out the others here and here. This time we had two months and were instructed to add about 20″ to the projects.

 

 

 

 

I didn’t see Terri’s original block so I found a picture on her website. And then I checked out her fabric and the leftover scraps from the other two rounds.

Lucky for me there were lots of scraps, including two pink pinwheels. I made a few…. and a few more.

I worked in sections, starting with a bottom row.

The sections were longish (34″- 54″) so I found the center of each piece and pinned and pinned.

I originally planned on adding a section on each side but then I changed my mind.

Hmmm. This side or.....

DSCN3678I thought I was done but the next morning I decided I wanted one last border.¬†Final measurements: 57″ x 56,” an inch or two larger than expected (55″) but I was deep into the “conversation” and couldn’t stop!

 

 

Can’t wait to receive the fifth and final round robin quilt later this month at our EBMQG meeting. I will miss these quilt conversations!

I’m definitely ready to teach my class at Stonemountain Fabrics on Friday: Quilting Without a Pattern.
