On July 15th, I will participate in my first round robin with the group. There are 5 of us in this round robin. We each make a block and send it on to one of the other ladies. The lady that receives our block will embellish one-fourth of the seams and spaces on the block. Then they will mail it to the next lady, and so on. In the end, we will each receive our own blocks back, with all of the work completed by the other four ladies.
There are still a few square corners, and that is fine - it will fit with my plans for the block once it returns home in November.
The block is 15-inches, though only 12 inches will be embellished. The blue basted seam indicates the edges of the block, where my seam lines will be. The block is intentionally larger so it will fit into a hoop without stretching the fabrics of the block itself. Now, I'm off to finish stitching around the edges to keep the fabrics from fraying too much. I have to admit, I cannot wait to see the magic the ladies perform on this in the upcoming months!
