MIL - Round Robin Quilt finished
Over the course of 2011 my SIL and I made a quilt for our MIL in the round robin style. I satrted the quilt with a paper pieced MAriners coompass in the centre, then she added a pinwheel border, i added a nine patch border and then she finished the quilt off with a rail fence border. It fits a queen beed and finished at 86" sq.

My round robin has come home to roost and a bonfire
Don't worry, the quilt isn't in the bonfire! I was so excited when my friend Jo brought over my round robin yesterday! I love it. Here it is in it's humble beginning. Now to decide if I will add to it, or consider it finished....hmmm...what do you think? We need to have them finished by the time we meet again in May. Two of my nieces came to visit from Des Moines yesterday, so my daughter had a cookout. We had a great time visiting, laughing and sitting around the bonfire. My daughter's…
