Quilt a day #28

This morning I dug into that bin of strips I showed yesterday and sorted them into paper bags by type. I think I can make string quilts for forever! I do have one grouping of purple, that one will be for me! This afternoon I ran to Lewiston with Doug, first time I have ever been to town and not needed to go to a store! I was able to get the two baby quilts I pieced yesterday quilted and just have to stitch down the bindings so I will show them tomorrow.

These are two round robins I did. The first one was my center and others added the other borders around it. I love blue and white as you can tell from the second photo. It was a row robin and my original row is the second one from the bottom. One over achiever of the group did the applique in the center depicting the scene on blue willow dishes. It's fabulous! I happen to have two blue willow plates. I have these two quilts in my dining room. The row robin is draped over a chair.

Absolutely gorgeous. I used to have a huge set of Blue Willow dishes - that scene is amazing.

Holy Moly! What an over-achiever! WOW, that blue willow scene is awesome. Both RRs are pretty darn spectacular!

I LOVE the first round robin quilt. Would you mind if I copied your idea? I hope you have a Happy Easter with your family.
