Here is the end result...Isn't it just fabulous!! Lesley added the first round..a wonky star shape with lots of negative space..she knows how much I love that! The arrow border was added by Sheila. She mentioned that she added it just before I published my arrow pattern. How in sync are we??? The final border was added by Karen. Just fabulous! pik-up-stik.. a favourite of mine. She said that she was low on text prints (another fave of mine) so she made up her own. Such a sweet touch!
I am so impressed with all the personal touches. My friends have certainly captured me in fabric. I can't wait to get this quilted up.
Here is Lesley's end result:...
Karen made the first round...all those sweet little pieced scrappy spools and a pieced section as well and I made the next border, an intertwined addition. Sheila made the fabulous outer border of hand stitched quilty sayings with pertinent appliques. I love the four corners with friendship stars. Her work is so amazing. Lesley was over the moon with her result. Suited her to a "T"
Next up....our wonderful hostess for the day - Sheila - who provided us with the best lunch imaginable and who shared her lovely home for the unveiling of our quilt tops.
I added the first star border in the hopes of Sheila doing some of her amazing hand quilting and the next border, the flying geese in graduating sizes with cornerstones was added by Karen. And finally, a sawtooth star border in all its scrappy glory was added by Lesley. So pretty! So Sheila!
And lastly but not leastly, we have Karen's end result in the Round Robin. The first border of meticulously hand appliqued hexie flowers was added by Sheila and next up, a border of colourful nine patches with black and whites was Lesley's contribution and finally, I added a raspberry kiss border in black prints with a background of a fabric with crosses that Karen had gifted to me. Karen is all about colour!
