Our group is called ARRR8 (long story and even longer name!) and we have been at this since January and I think I have managed to finish first (a fluke and not really down to me). I last wrote about the group here.
This is Pam's (uberstitch) top. She made that amazing middle with the most incredibly yummy palette.
Boy, have these tops grown big! Way bigger than we anticipated I think!
I added that last border of scrappy piano keys mixed in with the black and white floral fabric (Adventures with Alice by Darlene Zimmerman). I think Pam's top is my favourite of the whole swap. Pam will be getting this back now and will see the finished top for the first time as soon as I get the photos loaded to Flickr (unless she is reading this now!)
It has been such a great challenge to work out what to do each month. I think that has been the best bit about this, getting a fat parcel in the post and taking out another half finished quilt top and deciding what you could add to it.
I have really loved taking part in the round robin even if the postage back to the States has been killing me every month! I think next time I might try to get an all UK group going! And possibly make the maximum size for the centre a little smaller!
My Frida Kahlo inspired top is looking amazing and still has 2 more rounds to go! I am going to wait till I get it back before I show you, but for those of you who can't wait, here is a link to the Flickr Group.
