A small group of us from the 2014 New Quilt Blogger's Blog Hop got together about starting a round robin style bee. Many of us are new to this format so it's exciting to be taking on a new challenge.
We came up with the name Round Trip Quilts for our little adventure. It works by creating a center block (mine is below), and sending it to then next person on my mailing list.
Eventually, the quilt will return to it's original owner completely finished. Hence, the round trip part! If you're interested in following along check out the tab above or on instagram #roundtripquilts (pictures are already starting to show up!)
*Let me just give another little shout out to Jennifer who came up with this snazzy logo for our group and created the format for our page tab ... it's all awesome, right?!
Coming up with an idea for the center block was brutal, I couldn't lock down just one idea. I had a million ideas roaming my head. Time was running short, finally I had to settle on one idea.
The block is comprised of four paper pieced stars using solids in a blue, yellow, peach, and a deep magenta color pallet. The background is all in low volume fabric to add some pizzaz to the solids. The theme is low volumes as a background and solids for the pattern. As to what my counter-parts do with that theme, I cannot wait to see what they create!
I am excited to send this one off!
