A huge thank you to all of the ladies who worked so hard on my quilt: Michele, Caroline, Carol, Samantha, and Renae!
This was my first time participating in a round robin and I underestimated the stress that I would have in trying to figure out the perfect border to add. I will admit that I wasn't crazy about my fabric choices for my center block or with my piecing. In a way it made it easier because I wasn't worried that I wouldn't like the quilt in the end since I didn't even like it in the beginning. With that being said, here is my PERFECT Round Robin Quilt.
I decided to quilt it using dense, straight lines in a square starting from the center and working my way out. This is the first time I've quilted using this closely spaced lines and I love the texture (although, it isn't the softest).
I seem to have a problem with square quilts so when I got it back I added a 2.5" border to the top and to the bottom using a Lizzy House Pearl Bracelet fabric from my LQS. I know the rules stated that we were supposed to steer away from using too many plain/unpieced borders, I'm so glad that some of the ladies did it anyway. This quilt has the perfect balance of pieced and non-pieced (or minimally pieced) borders!
The center block was made using a Kate Spain Honey Honey Charm Pack and there is more from that line scattered throughout. It measures approximately 42" w x 48" l.
The backing and binding are also by Kate Spain (her Terrain line, I think). A wonderful job all around ladies. I'm so happy to have had a chance to work with all of you on these quilts and hope your as happy with your finished product as I am.
