I thought I might show how two of the blocks I worked on for the Spring Fling Round Robin have evolved with the quilty greatness of two other partners...
This was my first; I did the dragonfly center. The middle border is by Carol, and Valerie did the outer border. It is all so cohesive and whimsical; I love it.
Here, Carol (same Carol as above actually) did the inner turquiose, Santa Fe-ish block. I did the middle border (blogged here), and Jane did the outer border. I love Jane's choice of large scale prints and corner square diamonds to carry the wild style throughout. Although this style is not for everyone, I do personally like how it all turned out.
I encourage you to come view the wonderful quilts as they enter their final stage of developement. All are at their final quilter being sandwiched & quilted & bound to send to the final recipient. One is completed, but many will post here soon. This is a phenomenal group of quilters here. The piecing and applique work is extremely good. Plus they are each challenged to create a piece that the stage was set for by a previous person - means they have to be very good at thinking outside the box (and outside of "their" comfort box). I will likely host another of these this summer -
