Round Robins

I have finally finished another Plym Piecemaker's Round Robin row. This row is for Sue's quilt. Sue's theme is 'Butterflies and Flowers'. I have completed nine blocks. Why? Instead of thirty blocks in the bag, there was thirty one. So I have rounded the number of blocks to forty. Sue, I hope you like the blocks. The butterflies are my own design. I will be using them in a future quilt that I will share with you all soon.

Who's wants to make a BAG? Part Four

Baste the two strip rectangle onto your wadding, as shown. I use 505 spray to baste. It is important to leave about five inches spare at the top and bottom. DO NOT add a backing fabric. Quilt as desired. Yes, you can quilt without a backing fabric. I quilted a quarter inch from the seam on all strips without stopping. I continue stitching on the wadding until I reached the next seam as shown on the photo below.
When you have finished quilting, press to set the stitches.
I have crop the photo above so you can see the continuous quilting. I have left my five inches both above and below the strips for the next part.
I will not leave it so long to post the next part. I am sorry that I have not posted sooner but life has been very busy here recently. See you soon.

Katipatch Sister Block Exchange

The four pattern fabrics were chosen for this year's Katipatch Sister Block Swap. This is the third year that I have taken part in the exchange. I love this challenge and look forward to it every year.
These are the blocks that I had made and I hope my fellow sister swappers like them. If you would like to join us on the next exchange, please contact Katipatch.
