    Our guild is doing a round robin that kind of breaks the rules. We are in charge of our own project...no swapping. Our borders can 'swoop' into other borders too! So, here's mine so far.
    The border assignments are as follows:
    1. Square
    2. Triangle
    3. Applique (allowed to swoop)
    4. Paper Piece
    5. Something gathered
    6. I'll find out on Tuesday.
    The yo-yo's aren't tacked down yet...just in case I want to 'swoop' them into border #6. :)
    Thanks for looking!

    Great job. Your borders really enhance the center. Can't wait to see next round.:)

    That is so cool. I think I'd like keeping my own quilt and having assigned borders. I wouldn't mind others doing my quilt, but I would be so nervous doing someone else's. :-D

    I love how you did the picture of your husband and child. Now how did you get it so precise. I think that would be neet to make for the children next year for Christmas.

    I LOVE that!!!!! :thumbup: I have a picture of my niece petting a miniature horse when she was about 5 years old that I want to do. :wink: I'm thinking that she will get it for either her 16th birthday or for her high school graduation. She's 11 years old now. :roll:

    Lovely quilt! You did a wonderful job. What a novel idea - to do your own round robin. We want to see it after it's completed.

    Dawn ... I just love this picture quilt. I have been wanting to try my hand at it. Did you use a book to get the method down? Yours looks very real.

    Ok. Maybe I'm just having an emotional day because my husband had to go away for a month...but when I looked at your quilt and the picture that inspired it...it made me tear up. It is absolutely beautiful. I love everything about it, and I can't wait to see the finished project.
