    When I found out that KLue had dropped out of the IRR, I felt bad for her. So I got together with a few friends here on the board, and we offered to Round Robin her center so she would have a completed quilt, and she graciously accepted our offer.

    I did the first round. I've titled it "I'm ready for my closeup Mr. DeMille!"

    I deliberately chose FRIENDSHIP stars, instead of the regular 5 pointed ones. I had to experiment, and revise several times, because the glittery fabric is very stretchy, like swimsuit fabric. I tried stabilizing it and piecing the stars, but that was too bulky, so I ended up appliqueing them. Sigh. I'm really NOT an applique-er! LOL

    I hope you like it, KLue. I'll mail out on December 1st for the next one.
