This one came close to the wire for me. I finished adding the next border to my Feathered Star Round Robin quilt this afternoon (Sunday) and even took photos of it right away. Then I completely spaced out about writing my blog post for it until it was time to get ready for bed. Better late than never I guess!
Our assignment for Border #4 came from Roseanne and Sue at Home Sewn by Us, and their choice of border was checkerboard. I tried out several different ideas, both with my EQ program and also in fabric. They all seemed too busy until I ended up with plain borders and checkerboard (aka 9-patch) corners. My quilt currently finishes at 34" square.
If you are interested in joining in on the Stay at Home Round Robin, take a look at Gail's intro post HERE. She was the one who got this whole thing started! Check out everyone's progress for last week at Home Sewn by Us.

This is so pretty--love that feathered Star--nice work on adding borders...hugs, JulieroseReplyDelete
I think your choice of corners was perfect. It's looking good!ReplyDelete
I think your plan worked really well with your quilt to date. Sometimes less works out.ReplyDelete
Hi Julie! Your plan is certainly highlighting your beautiful center medallion. Thanks for linking up! ~smile~ RoseanneReplyDelete
Your SAHRR is coming along SEW nicely, Julie!!ReplyDelete
I like your calming down of the busyness--more focus on the pretty center that way.ReplyDelete
It's been fun to see how each person interprets the border clues for their project. The 9 patch corner stones were the way to go for your SAHRR. Beautifully done!ReplyDelete
Good decision on the latest border - The center medallion is so beautiful, and the calmer outer border draws me to the center. Well done.ReplyDelete
I like how yours is developing! I had really hoped to jump in on this but haven't been able to so far. Keep having fun with it!ReplyDelete
