    Gaigai sent me her International Round Robin II quilt top to quilt for her. She wanted something soft and even thru the quilt to go with her theme. This pantograph is called "ground cover" and is comprised of leaves. I used a free hand meandering to offset her center. The contracting thread on the back really help the design to pop.

    I didn't see this one while it was in the IRR. How did I miss it? It's absolutely gorgeous! Gaigai - did you save fabric and do the last border yourself, or did the last person find it? Amazing. Using OBW in one of the borders was a stroke of genius. Also amazing that someone had some of the original flowers for one of the other borders and appliqued a few of them. It makes the whole quilt look planned from the start! I'm well and truly blown away by the whole IRR group!

    OK, I sort of have an idea what IRR means, just from the comments, but what does it really stand for?

    International Round Robin. The gals were from several countries. They posted pictures and comments (and many of us not involved posted comments and compliments) during the many months of their exchange.

    Thanks, I had figured out that several people were part of the process, but never thought about it being international. What a neat idea.

    What a lovely quilt!! Really like the center for this and the quilting sure does set the quilt off all together. Good job on everyone's part!!

    I had this with me when I lived in France! I did the greeny grey border with the butterflies. Sandpat did the OBW border and it really WAS genius! Nice to see it quilted. I'm ashamed to say that my rooster is still only a top. :oops:
