Round Robin


Debra and I have been doing a round robin quilt. She gave me four machine embroidered blocks last year at IPQF, and I pieced them into this composition. The working title for this piece has been Pink Madonna.


This is how it looked after Debra did the next round. I really love the text she chose for the ribbon. We'll have to get the final title from that verse: "Oh Holy Mother, beautiful flower of our life's bountiful garden."


This is how it looks now. I'll be sending it back to Debra.

The camera went a little crazy trying to capture these bright colors, but you can click on the photos for close ups.


When I was done with my round I sat in front of my design wall, and admired my handiwork.

Well, I can see why! I love the pink and yellow colors of this piece.

Does our Madonna glow or what?

I wrote that line right out of my little head so I guess it's your turn to think of a name!

Really pretty! Who says scraps aren't pretty, eh?

Oh, and Barbara, I have been sitting here admiring your work as well! I LOVE this pink Madonna and I think the border you just added is my favorite part so far...really makes her sing in the composition...this is a fun project and I can't wait to see what the two of you do next!

That last border you added really makes it pop. I'm loving the rectangular star in the center, too.
