Round Robin

I finally finished my Round Robin that my family did a few years ago.
I'm still tying to take better pictures.
I think I'm going to build a rack to hang them on - that might solve the problem.
This is a picture of the front.
I started it with the center square and then sent it to my sister Jeanette from Inchworm Fabrics.
She did the next row of flying geese and then sent it to my mother.
She did the row with the star appliques and then gave it to my sister Beverly from Quilter Corner.
She then sent it to my sister Barbara from Bejeweled Quilts by Barb and she did the stars. 
Here is a shot of the back.
I've held back on finishing it because I could never find a good match for the last border.
I'm really not crazy about red but that seemed to be the direction this one took.
And it turned out awesome.
 Thank you to my family for doing such an awesome job.
A closer view of the center. 
Some views of the back. 

As you can tell I still need to perfect my camera skills.
Here is a picture of how my mother's round robin turned out.
She sent this to me to quilt not long after we finished.
So we must have done this about 5 years ago. 
This was one of the first ones I machine quilted.
This was a lot of fun.
They're doing another one right now with my daughter and a few of my nieces.
I decided not to join in this time. I was always behind on the last one.
With everything that's happened this year I would probably still be on the 1st one.

How lovely that you can do a round robin with family members!
I'm pretty sure I'm the only quiltmaker in my family even if I extend the family waaaaay out!
I'm sure it's rewarding to have it finished.

You come from a talented family of quilters - so lucky! No one else in my family sews. :(
