Shabby Chic Round Robin

This is the week for Round Robins to return home I guess….I had 2 come in at the same time. IMG_8954

This one is from my local group. So it’s all my own fabric..they use my fabric and just add rounds to the center that I produced.

The center actually came from my friend Robert. he embroidered it for me to show me what the design looked like and I fell in love. I didn’t want this one block to be wasted…I thought it could stand alone as a quilt center. IMG_8957 IMG_8956

So I gathered a bunch of my fabrics that “matched” the theme and let my quilting friends build me a quilt. IMG_8955

I have to say I am totally in love with it. All I could do is stare at it when they revealed it to me. That’s the other thing about this group…you don’t get to see your own quilt each month. You only get to know the size….and when it’s a size you think is ok…you can take it out of the pot and put a new center & kit in. So I got to see it for the first time last night. I really think it’s beautiful. IMG_8958 IMG_8959

So I will have to think about how I am going to quilt this. But I did use leftover fabrics and sewed my back & cut my binding. All of the fabric I put in my kit is pretty much gone. So that was a great way to use stash! I can’t wait to see what they do with my vintage Halloween center next.
