Our round robin is progressing nicely, This is Rosemary,s original block, which I now have to follow on from Margaret. This is now getting more difficult to decide on the next fabrics and piecing method. I have an idea and hope it will work.
This is what Rosemary did to Margaret's original block. The colour choice is beautiful, Shirley now has this block, good luck Shirl! This is what I did to Kate's original block last week, I used some hand dyed fabric and squared the block off. I now know my geometry skills are very poor. Rosemary now has this block.

Kate added the beautiful border to Pats original block. I think you will agree that this is stunning.

Pat added this lovely green border to Shirley's original block, this frames it really nicely.

And look what has happened to my original block. Shirley has used my most favourite fabrics in the border, and believe me those hexes are teeny tiny. I think I am going to love having my original block back when we have finished, yum yum.

Happy stitching everyone

Today was our second week exchange, for our round robin blocks. This is what I had done to Shirley's original block. They are 1" squares, and I have set the block on point. Pat now has this block. These were the other blocks. Shirley added a lovely mauve border to Pats, Pat added the lovely pastel stripes to Margaret's hexagon block, Margaret added the triangles and diamonds to Kate's block.
Rosemary added the lovely sashing to my block.
In this photo you can see the flying geese that Kate added to Rosemary's block
This really is proving to be fun, but it will be hard work as the quilt gets bigger!!

Watch this space.

I want to reassure anyone who checked out my last post, that this was Honey enjoying the sun, and snoozing in my sewing room a few days ago, and not after she had been put to sleep. I did not think of how it looked when I put it on the blog, until my hubby pointed it out. I hope I did not offend anyone.

My little Honeybunch had to be put to sleep last night. She was suffering so much RIP my little angel. You were my best friend.
