Here is Janet's Round Robin. (Note: I neglected to take a picture of just her center square, or if I did, it's probably on the laptop and I'm too lazy to turn it on and hunt for it.)
Her main fabric was a companion floral to the fabric I used in the corner squares. I used a floral stripe from the line to make the four patch posey squares. I worked on this shortly after receiving it in March and then put it away while pondering what to do with mine.
This is mine. I sent Janet the center square, out to the green. She added the flying geese. After a lot of wavering, I happened on a link to some really cool foundation pieced blocks. Sorry, I don't have the link handy right now.
After procrastinating way longer than I should have , and a few false starts due to not having enough fabric for my first few attempts, I finally ended up with this.
So, when I pulled Janet's back out to send off to her, I didn't like it. I think it needs something more, maybe some appliqué or something. But, time was against me so I sent it off anyway. When it comes back to me in March I will probably add some appliqué to those big gold areas.
Meanwhile, I have some serious catching up to do on the Farmer's Wife. Unfortunately it isn't going to be happening anytime soon. I've been doing some non-fun sewing in prep for our big, upcoming camping trip. Things like window screens for the bus. Door screen for the slider, porta-potty cover and an insulated cooler cover. I'd much rather have been quilting.
Happy Birthday Janet.
