The Double Dutch group started another series of Round Robins.
I have been ‘borrowing’ most of the photo’s from our Flickr group.
Muriël started this RR, the center is an orphan block from her Sugar block quilt. I added the strips of fabric, trying to work in the same colours and trying to use a simple and quick technique – you sometimes have to 😉
Eva-Marie added the next round, the pale green border and pink/red cornerstones and a fabulous seminole border, a technique I wasn’t familiar with.
The next round was for Lotje. Muriël received the Round Robin back and made the yellow corner triangles, which I love as it brings one of the centre colours back. She’s now is working with all sorts of fabrics and ideas. Curious to see the result!
Lotje’s starter block is an Owl.
Eva-Marie added the triangles and the grey/green strips
I added a round of strips and squares, mainly from Maze and Vale from Australia. My idea was to have the owl placed out of the center.
Muriël added strips and created a log cabin. I’m not sure who is working on this Round Robin now ?
This RR is from Eva-Marie, she made the centre block, the first round was made by Lotje. She added the red/creme flower fabric, the lime green squares on point and the girly and playful fabric.
Muriël reflected the point from the center block in her round and added the plusses.
This was my initial idea for the next round, but it didn’t work out like I planned. The dark blue pieces where too heavy and I struggled with the size.
I decided to first add a 1/2″ dark blue border, so I could use the 4″ finished HST that I had in mind. The four corner blocks are Raspberry Kisses blocks. It now measures 32,5″ square unfinished.
This is my starters block, a 12″ orphan block from my Labyrinth quilt.
Muriël added the second round, that I really love! I’m a lover of orange!
Mari was the next to add a round and then Lotje. I don’t have separate pictures of these rounds. Eva-Marie was the last to work on the RR. She placed the block on point and added triangles. I love that the squares are continued into the triangles and I also love the grey triangle fabric.
It’s much more challenging to work on a quilt that’s not your own and to think about colours, prints and patterns than when the quilt will be made for yourself.
