Design Wall--Round Robin Finish! (repost)

I'm reposting this entry to Judy's DWM which I failed to do last week. . . .

Have you ever been in a Round Robin? As I told you a few weeks ago in this post I was in one with 7 other ladies at a quilt shop, Thimble Creek, in Concord Calif. We each made a center block and 4 borders would be added by 4 other quilters in the group. We actually chose the quilt we wanted to work on each month rather than everyone working on everyone else's quilt which is normally how Round Robins work.

I am absolutely ecstatic with my finished top! My center block was inspired by the wonderful Freddy Moran who I saw speak at a nearby quilt guild recently. I told the other quilters that I wanted a small quilt with bright colors and black and white, just like Freddy does it! This quilt measures 38" square which is perfect for the spot I have earmarked for it in our foyer.

These quilters really know what they're doing don't they?! See that final border? I actually wanted to stop after the white polka dot border just before it because I didn't think anyone could add anything to enhance the quilt. Boy was I wrong! And you know who pieced the last border? Sandy Klop of American Jane fame! She's a delightful lady, so cheerful and friendly!

Take a look at this other quilt, the one I finished for another member of the group. Like it?
