    'Quilty Pleasures' RR

    hello ladies, i'm sharing with you my center for the up and coming RR, i'm calling this 'summer garden'.
    i wish i could take credit for the design, but i can't... i actually saw the picture on line and decided 'now there is a lovely idea for a center'! i can certainly use that idea!!

    (btw, please don't look TOO closely at the flying geese! they wouldn't stay still while i was squaring them up! lol... what a mess!!! rofl!!! good job i don't take life too seriously!! )

    i tend to go with autumn colours, so this is me breaking away from my comfort zone with these bold and beautiful colours, there should be something for everyone in this center, so go with your creative thoughts and juices!!

    i'm looking forwards to sending it off in january!

    now you've seen mine, lets see yours!! lol...

    What fun, Jacquie! I makes me smile and that is the best a quilt can do as far as I'm concerned. Great job!

    Love your center, Jacquie. Can't wait to get my hands on it. This will be so much fun.

    Valleyquiltermo, an RR is a "round robin." This one is a private group of friends who have decided to post our pictures of our quilts on the board for others to see. Each person in the group makes a center and every other person in the group adds a border. By the time we are done, we will have a fairly large quilt, depending on the size of the starting center. Our group consists of 7 quilters, so there will be six rounds added to each center, and according to the sizes of borders we have decided on, each side of the quilt will have borders totaling 33", so if the center started at 18" x 24" (which I believe is the size of mine), I should end up with a quilt 84" x 90.

    jacquie, your center is fabulous! It looks like a lot of fun is in store.

    Here's what I'm thinking of. I'd like something that starts with a traditional pattern and takes off from there, but my DH says this makes his eyes vibrate. I don't want to hurt any eyes out there.

    I love it. Don't see a thing wrong with your flying geese. You should have seen mine - Let's just say, their wings were clipped. Yours are beautiful.
