    This was started fall 09 and I finished handquilting it about 3 weeks ago and decided it was time to photograph and share it. For those unfamiliar with a Round Robin, it's a fun exchange quilt. Groups were set up in my quilt chapter with 4 and 5 people. There were 5 in my group. Each of us made the center square and could add in fabric if we wished and I did include some with they used here and there to tie the quilt together. After completing our squares, we exchanged with the next person on the list who added a border to enhance the quilt. Since I had no restrictions, each did their own thing and I love the end results of this quilt.
    1st. border is the tiny block border.
    2nd border is a floral hand pieced applique
    3rd border is the pretty zig zag made by our only male guild member and he is one awesome sewer.
    4th border was done by a machine embroiderer who just bought a new machine and wanted to use it on our borders so she put the pretty little flower on the corners using a bit of my included fabric. That's how it was when I got it back. Before leaving the meeting that night I knew I had to add the scalloped border to it and am glad I did as it just finishes the quilt. One of the ladies in our group was so thrilled with hers tht she's enlarging it to fit a king sized bed. A round robin gives you a good start on whatever you want to do with it from a wall hanger to a throw or enlarge it out to make it to fit a bed. The really fun thing about a round robin is that there are techniques on here that I would never have thought to add to a quilt. Initially I planned to use it as a wall hanging in one of our bedrooms but it's a bit too large so it is a throw and is on our living room sofa where in enhances the decore of the room.
