I am a 40 something year old mother of 2. I have always been interested in crafts since my sister and I spent summer weeks with my Grandmother, who was a very crafty lady, while my mother was in college. I mostly quilt since I seem to have an obsession with owning large quantities of fabric, but at one point or another think I have tried almost every craft out there.

round five

I have been a bad, bad blogger. I haven't had time to either quilt or blog. I so want to start Judy's next hour a day quilt, but it's just not working out. I have been thinking about it. :c)

This is all I have finished in a long, long time. This is my Round 5 in my group's round robin. This months border was curves. I had a really hard time. It belongs to a good friend and I couldn't envision anything for a border with curves that I thought would compliment it. I decided that instead I would embellish the triangle border with curves. I drew up the holly vines from the print on the black fabric in the outer border. I should have taken a better picture of that fabric before I passed it along. It was due last night and I finished the handwork at about 12:30 am. Nothing like cutting it close. It is now in the hands of the next person and I have my last one to get started on. It's made from Aunt Gracie's and we are doing applique. I have so many ideas for this one that I'm not sure which one I am going to do.

I love your vines, they are perfect, and I can't think of any other way to do curves with that quilt that would work.

with such strong lines in the quilt, I think you were very creative to come up with a way to make the curves work. Congrats

oh yours are looking so much better than what I have been getting stuck with on my rounds. Good job, Tami

Your solution was perfect! The holly vine is the perfect compliment to the piecing. I think a curved border stuck outside of what's there so far would have looked really wierd. Well done!

I think it looks wonderful! That's going to turn out a very nice quilt when finished!

Aunt Gracie fabrics always inspire me too. Can't wait to see if you show that one too!

Your vines look great - and such a nice compliment to the center. This recipient should be pleased.

Your vines look terrific. I think it goes really well with the center. Great thinking to add to a border that was already there rather than just making it bigger.

I don't always like a lot of Round Robin quilts but this one looks nice.
