Round Robin top is complete!

With the motivation of my Q1 Finish A Long Goals list, I have been a busy quilter, especially now that my MQG Swap minis are done and have been received by their recipients.

I finally (FINALLY!) finished the quilt top from the 2015 Round Robin activity I did with my guild, the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild.

It looked more or less like this when I got it back at the end of the round (I had to perform a bit of surgery on it to take out a couple of rows that just didn't work for me):

I got out my yarn-dyed scraps along with my other scrap bins and set to work. First up, I added some larger-scale flying geese.

Then came a row with improv quarter-circles:

The top still needed something to widen it. Arrows to the rescue!

And finally a scrappy monochromatic slab for the top and we are all set.

I had wanted to get it quilted right away, but I'm setting the top aside to tend to some more pressing projects.


  1. Looks great, love the bottom row!

  2. Love this quilt! I'm intrigued by what you may have taken out but I'll get over it! It looks like a fun project!

  3. Love how you rescued it. The negative space really enhances the wildness of the quilt. wonderful

  4. I just love this ..... what a great feeling it must be to have the top done. Can't wait to see how you quilt it.

  5. I love the additions to it! I too am curious as to what you took out. 😍


I *love* comments, and I try to respond to every one by email (but I can't if you're a no-reply blogger!). So go on, don't be shy - leave one to let me know you've stopped by!
