Quilting for others

In our Metro Mod guild, round robins are becoming a favorite. This was one of the first and a few others are in the works. At the February meeting, David brought this and asked if anyone wanted to add to it.


It looked like stained glass and I could envision a rose window above it. So, I took it.

After learning paper piecing for Victoria's Christmas Flower block for the bee...

...I thought I'd try paper-piecing for this too. It was a bear figuring out how to design and sew such a huge paper-pieced section, but in the end it turned out just fine!

It was declared "done" by the group and passed to Kim who wants to quilt it.

The best part was seeing the picture posted by Victoria in her guild meeting post. I was so busy showing and telling, I missed David's reaction! Sometimes, with a little luck, you just get it right. I love it when that happens!

I know! I love that picture too, his reaction is priceless. You did such a great job on that. Wouldn't you love to have that as a door?

I saw this on the Mod Guild site and liked it then. It was a very inspired round robin add. It is always a joy to work on another quilt's piece and have the result be so spectacular. You all have a great guild. Bonnie
