Quilt Reveal Part 2

I've been participating in a Round Robin quilt with five of my friends. We brought our quilt centers to a meeting in September and have been swapping quilts every 6-8 weeks.  This was a very wide open, no rules, kind of swap. We each made our own center, included fabrics in a bag, and sent our merry block on its way to grow up into a wall hanging or quilt. We never saw our quilt again until the reveal! I've had a lot of fun with this Round Robin, but don't think I'll be participating in another for a while. This was a bit more challenging than I may be willing to admit.  :) However, the quilts are all beautiful!  I'll try to get pictures of everyone else's quilts, but for now you'll have to settle for several pictures of mine. The quilt is 82" square (!) so it doesn't even fit on my design wall.

I made the center block with stars and poppies based on a Bonnie Sullivan design.

Cheryl added the next border, which she stitched BY HAND while on a trip to Alabama.

Annette added the next border -- a unit we affectionately call wings.

Lynn was known for going over the top on all of our quilts. She added the Churn Dash Stars border.

Donna knew exactly what she wanted to do as soon as she saw my quilt and this fun border was added next.

Betsy had the final border and decided to incorporate an element from my Confetti pattern into the borders. She also included Lynn's Churn Dash blocks in the corners. (Check out my blog header for the Confetti pattern to see the cobblestone border.)

I love, love, love my quilt and have a backing already picked out for it. Not sure what I'll bind it in, but that can wait for another day.
