Christy's round robin

Melissa is here! And her sister Christy. Melissa is doing a book signing for her new book and she has brought several of her beautiful quilts along. It's a hot day with a little breeze so we should have a great quilt show.

And here is Christy's Round Robin Block! When I found out she was coming for the quilt show, I got busy and got my border on so she could take it home with her today.  Long day Busy day...
Have a great weekend!

Christy's Quilt

 All done...well not entirely...I need to take out the basting stitches...but with any luck, I can do that tonight and drop this in the mail to Patty before we leave for vacation tomorrow morning.

I hope you like it Christy...when you  mentioned a 1930s feel...that always makes me think of hexagons...and it was super fun to use some of the vintage fabric I have tucked away into various boxes around my sewing room.
Thanks for a fun Round Robin ladies!

Christy I think we are quite behind on your quilt Christy, but Im working on it!!
Here is my idea...I wanted to make sure you don't hate it first!!

my warning:  I have never made hexagons before...(but Im enjoying it!!)

I dug into my vintage scraps hoping I would find fabrics you like.  Im never quite sure if it's from the 30s, 40s, 50s, etc....but Im sticking with reds, blues, and pinks....

What do you think ladies?

I think the background fabric is vintage also....again...not sure how 'vintage'...but its darling.

All Done!

I finished! The binding on my table quilt got nailed down late last night, so here are picture proof, front and back.  I really enjoyed the round robin process, so I'm going to encourage some of my local quilters to start a round robin quilt. wish me luck!  And I really like that backing - all those little bitty half square triangles, all perfectly matched, with much thanks to designers Minick and Simpson !-D
