    Thank you Judy, you answered the next question that I was going to ask. Also, is there any specified suggestion of the next round, or is each person totally free to add any design of their choice?

    In addition to what she said, and to answer the questions someone asked a bit back, each person in the group makes a center and every person in the group puts a border on each center.

    No, there is no specification for any of the border except for the dimension. The fun is that everyone adds their own "touch" to the quilt...probably not what you would do on your own.

    For those of you who are interested in IRR quilts, here is a link to some of the quilts that were made in IRR II - 2010:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-54909-11.htm

    They are so gorgeous and when you think that most of the people in the groups that worked on the quilts have never met each other, it's amazing how beautiful the quilts turn out.

    I am too impressed by your quilting to believe your'e still learning. I think youv'e got it! I only quilt in the ditch. Fmq baffles and frustrates me.

    This is such an inspiration for those of us just finishing up the current IRR- our tops will be coming back home to us in the next few weeks. I hope I can get mine finished a little faster ;)

    I sure do hope you all finish them quicker than I did...but I sure lacked the confidence to quilt something that was so wonderfully done by those ladies!

    oh i love your leaves on the braided border; they really tie in well with the appliqued leaves in the preceding border. And as for the rest of the quilting...WoW...and just look at those quilted baskets in the corners of the white border! Gorgeous!
