Our "Round Robin" projects travel far

I love this photo of my "Round Robin" quilt top on Eileen's gorgeous wingback chair.
A few years ago about 11 members of our club made these quilt tops, each secretly adding a border to every quilt in the circle.
I chose a Christmas theme for mine and was thrilled at the final presentation to see all the lovely Seasonal fabrics and cheery colours the girls had used in it.
Well of course I put it away planning to quilt it in time for Christmas....didn't happen.
Then I won a PIF gift from Eileen at Robin Hill Quilts  and she offered to quilt a top for me. I was blown away by such a generous offer. So into a postbag and off to USA where Eileen photographed and posted it's arrival on her blog. It looks so at home on her lovely red and white plaid chair. I'm so excited about this, Eileen is a magnificent quilter. How lucky am I?

I agree Sue your Quilt looks quiet at home on Eileen's chair. Can't wait to see the quilt on it's return when it will have been beautifully quilted.
