This is my Round Robin quilt so far. I put round three on it yesterday. This is aa great project that the Carol Doak yahoo group is doing. We call it a round robin, but it does not get sent around. Every three weeks or so, Carol posts guidelines for the next round and everyone designs it based on those guidelines using Carol Doak patterns of course! It's a challenge and fun too. This time the round was to design a border using rectangular shaped blocks. I used blocks from the 9-patch stars book and the ones on the sides, I enlarged to 5" by 8", then put two together mirror image. This created those great diamond shapes.
I also finished my Grateful Heart Sampler, but did not take a picture yet! I cut a backing and batting, so I will hopefully quilt it soon. I'm getting an awful big pile needing quilting! That's to go with my awful big pile of tops waiting! I am going to start sacrificing quilt tops that I don't like so much to be backings to whittle it down some!
