Deana: a finish!



Today I will be working on a family round robin.  It is a big secret so I cannot show you until February (darn it).  I don't know who sent it to me or whose quilt it is.  We are all designing a qulit for each other - we drew names, but we must keep it all secret.  We all started with the same fabric and can add anything to it we want.  We come up with a pattern and cut out 6 kits.  We sew the first kit and then send it off to the next person.  We generally each make a whole row of blocks and assemble them.  The next person makes their row and attaches it to the first, so when we get to the end all the quilts will be completely finished tops.  It is SO MUCH FUN!

I also REALLY HOPE to get back to work on the buckskin mare TODAY!

Friday linkups include the following:

I am excited that I was able to finish quilting Sandra's quilt.  I will be delivering it to her Saturday.

I will be looking forward to seeing your family mystery quilt when you can reveal it. The mare and the quilt you quilted are both beautiful.

Your mare is now beautifully framed! As you used the same blue and orange fabrics as before, the frame makes a smooth transition, I find. I hope you didn't become fed up with those diamonds and circles appliqués as it must have taken some time to stitch them. ;-)

Your mare is looking beautiful. Sandra's quilt is beautiful too! Very nice! I love the quilting!
