A bit of a wash up

In the post before last I showed you the Spring Fling Round Robin 2 quilt I received from this swap.

Looking at the SFRR2 blog it occurred to me that, because we weren't allowed to show anything other than a hint of what we'd added each time in case the final recipient managed to guess which quilt was hers, I hadn't shared with you the works in progress

So here we are:

The SFRR2 consisted of four rounds: a centre, two borders amd finally the quilting & binding

These are my contributions pictured in the finished quilts:

My centre which I thought was a little Delft like - it's just the white area with the applique.

My first round - more applique plus some triangles and a little butterfly

My second round - a saw-tooth star in the corner to echo its predecessors and some celtic knotwork applique. I rather enjoyed working on this as an off-set border which gave me lots more width to play with and fit in the knotwork.

Finally, one you've seen already - the piece I got to quilt and bind - this one was quilted to within an inch of its life

And last but not least the quilt I received after all the hard work and love and attention of four other stitchers.

My favourite is the second to last that you quilted - I clicked for a close up. Did you quilt the stamens on the flowers and the butterfly antenna too? They are really effective.

The applique is lovely. They are all so different.

What lovely quilts! I love the way they are mostly offset! It lends such interest. I'm involved in a Round Robin too right now and I'll have to remember some of the clever touches you gals have made on these sweet quilts.
