My first entry is my Round Robin quilt. It was difficult to decide which category to pick to enter it in, but I finally chose the small quilt category.
The Round Robin quilt was a project between me and my best quilty friend (BQF), Heather. I made the center string pieced block, then I mailed it to Heather. She added a border and then mailed it back. I added the next border, and mailed it back to her. We did four rounds before calling it finished. You can look back on the process by seeing my blog posts along the way.
I absolutely loved the process behind this quilt! I loved the suspense of seeing what Heather added each time, but I also loved the challenge of coming up with what to add.
I quilted it on my own sewing machine (a vintage Bernina 930 Record). I actually surprised myself with how well the quilting turned out! It's amazing what a little practice can do!
The finished quilt is 48" square. It is a mix of fabric brands, but is made with quilting cottons. It is various reds, aquas, grays, and solid white. I used a low-loft polyester batting. The back is pieced with some aqua scraps and a red and white dot that I also used for the binding.
