Roosting Robin Round One

>> Monday, January 19, 2015

Round one directions were given out on January 15th. This is through a group of quilters that I chat/hang out with/love! at Pat Sloan's Quilt Mashup.

We needed to use some scraps from the block and could set our block on point or add a plain border that could be big enough for embroidery and/or applique.

On point wasn't going to look right with this block!
I added a really wide border - 6.5 inches wide - not necessarily for some big applique but simply to grow this quilt. There will only be 6 rounds. Now, I could add both border options each round, but that might not happen. I also had quite a chunk of the green fabric so I decided to use it up now - I still have a little bit left.

Ideas are stewing - to add applique or not?

We'll see. I've had a few ideas pop in my head when I glance up at this on my design wall.

Report cards are calling my name! Gotta go do some more teacher stuff.
My reward will be a weekend where I can really focus on my quilting list.

With Joy,

Sarah V

Love the green fabric and the scrappy churn dash. I'd wait to appliqué until after the next round and you know what colours you're going to use - but that's just me. Can't wait to see what you do each round with this project.

The green dots are great. I need to get my borders on. I can't turn on point either. I am thinking on some options for the border.
