The Last Round

Hello Everyone,

This month wrapped up the Improvi-Robin!  I had to put the last round onto Miki's quilt which was sent to me from Stephanie.

This is how I received the quilt.  Stephanie had added the larger borders and the appliqué  leaves.  It was gorgeous!

As soon as I opened it up, I had just the perfect colors of fabrics to go with it on my ironing board!!  Do you believe it?  I couldn't, but was thrilled.  So what to do?  

I decided to add four patches and triangles to the right side and the top.  I didn't feel that it needed four more borders.

Here is a peek at the right side.  Aren't the colors just right? I couldn't be happier!

I even mitered the corner, it really called for this to be done.

Here is the finished piece.  I sure hope Miki is happy with it, even though I was a little late in getting it off to her.  I sent it back yesterday via priority mail so she should have it in no time flat.

If you want to see the progression of this top, check out our Flickr group.  You will also see the other quilts in progress.

It was fun being in this round robin, it helps you to stretch your creativity a bit. The next blog post, I will share with you my block that I received back from Stephanie.

PS.  Don't forget to enter my fabric and pattern giveaway going on... here.

Until Next Time...
