Here we go round and round

My quilt group met today and I nearly forget that we were starting our round robin quilts today.  Everyone had to bring a 12 1/2 inch block of their choice in a shopping bag of some sort and, it they wanted to, material to go with it.  I had the block packed in but I hadn't put it in a bag and I hadn't picked out fabric.  Luckily I remembered in time to rectify that situation.  As always with anything this group does our choices were extremely diverse.  Here are the blocks we started with.....starting with my block - the centre of which was completed by my mum before she passed away in 2005..

Next we have Glenys'
 Cynthia's - she has asked for a quilt made of plain colours with geometrical patterns loosely based on the work of an indigenous group from Christmas Island - I might not be 100% correct with that but I am going off my memory now.....
 Then Andrea's - love the pink and the curving flying geese!
 the is Audrey's - this block is so Audrey!
 And Del's gorgeous needlework!
 Irene's Amish inspired
 Lyn's Kaffe if I am not mistaken
 Cynthia C's - once again - very Cynthia!
 Next is Sharon's - she LOVEEEEE's bows.
 And finally Debbie's - Kaffe Fasset cabbage bowls and this is the one I am starting with......
I am thinking a thin patterned border, maybe an inch or less and then something pieced.  I am not sure.  Any suggestions?  I think I will be mulling it over for a day or two ......
Til next time ....happy stitching!


  1. I'm not great at modern type designs, so your ideia of a thin border is good. I would keep it simple and continue to introduce solid fabrics.

  2. I'd have to audition several fabrics and let it simmer on the design wall. That's a unique block. Your block turned out lovely. Looking forward to seeing how all these different blocks turn out.


  3. What a great idea! I cant wait to see what you decide to do!!! :)

  4. The blocks are so pretty what fun. Can not wait to see how they turn out.
