A Quilty Kind of Girl

With a little help from my friends

I have another finished quilt to share with you today! This one has been so patient. It began in Feb. 2010 as a mystery challenge for an upcoming guild retreat. Our friend, Joan E. (quilt)Smith, designed the beginning pattern, which consists of the inner four blocks. I pieced these ahead of time and added the first inner border.


The next step was to take the quilt to retreat where another quilter would add the next border, you know, round robin style. Joan added the prairie point border next. Then the quilt went to Brenda who added the block type border. Lastly, my very own Mommy, Marilyn added the outer chevron or braid type border. I love the borders these fabulous ladies put on my quilt!!

Matty totally rocked the quilting with some gorgeous teeny tiny feathers and neat block designs too. This quilt is truly one of a kind!

I had gotten the binding half ass attached in November, but gave it a final push and finished it up new years day. It is hanging in our son Tash’s room where the colors work perfectly.

I really enjoyed doing this style of quilt, with the center blocks and adding varied borders. I will certainly do something like this again. Have you participated in round robin quilt making? Let’s see some pics or blog posts! Feel free to leave a comment and share about your own round robin experience.

Quilty hugs,

  2. um…where is the photo? I did a round robin a long time ago with a group from Pat Sloan’s now defunct yahoo group. It was wonderful and I ended up with the greatest house quilt… you can read about it here…

  3. I like the idea of round robins but I lack confidence in my own ability to think of something that adds to the quilt design. I just can’t visualize complimentary components I guess. Yours turned out bright and cheerful.
