    Round Robin top

    My friend went on vacation so she gave me her round robin to do the second border. The rules said it had to have a triangle. By not making the whole border, flying geese, I didn't have to do math to figure how big each flying goose had to be. Plus I thought it had patchwork in the center and the first round was patchwork so I wanted someplace for the eye to rest. The photo looks brighter than it is.

    The light orange fabric is dyed with Ritt dye in the microwave

    Don't see a photo, just a box with a paper clip and the words "attached images". This is the second thread in a row that I have had that problem. In the other thread it seems that some people could see the picture. Ooops, your picture is trying to come in--must be an issue with the size of the file or something. It's really pretty!

    I really like the way this design is going. Did she tell you how many are participating in the rr. Also another thing, how did your photo turn out with such a soft glow to it. I really like the picture as well.

    Pretty quilt!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Lovely work. I would be pleased to receive it were it mine. I like the way you used the geese to set off the corners.

    Cheers, K

    Looks like a fun RR. I do not envy the next person or whenever the round comes up that has to do a row with circles. I do like your idea of just doing a few FG (triangles). Love the colors and I never heard of doing Rit dye in M/W. But I am behind on much of technology nowdays.

    Beautiful fall colors. Such a clever idea to sew the FG in the corners only! I love it when I can get out of doing all that math!

    Wonderful; love it. Never heard of dying fabric in the microwave. So much I still don't know.
