My Amazing Round Robin Quilt!

WOW - Isn't it amazing??? I passed the pink center block (now on point, and altered with a gorgeous star in the center) along to 7 friends over a year ago, and this is the quilt they made for me! What a tremendous experience working on a round robin was. All the quilts are gorgeous, and I'll post pics of the others another time. We set a "theme" for each round (triangles, curves, squares, 2" border, applique, embellish, anything goes) and passed our quilts. Please click on the photo and look at this beauty up close - there are dimensional flowers, beads and sequins and ribbon knots, and that gorgeous peacock in the corner. It is truly spectacular! It's going to be a joy to finish it. I just love it.

This is stunning!
Amazing what a group of talented people can come up with -- one idea at a time.

You are such a lucky girl!

Michelle, your quilt is so amazing. I'm sorry I missed seeing it at the Reveal on Thursday. I am intrigued at Holly's embellishments, and can't wait to see the finished quilt!

And thanks for your beautiful beading and embroidery on my Round Robin quilt!

Holly's embellishments are fantastic. Wait 'till you see it up close! She put a bead and sequin in just about every "dot" on the olive fabric in the squares row. It looks so fantastic, I'm going to do the same thing on the triangle part.
