This week I made a border for the June assignment of the Vancouver MQG Round Robin project. There are 11 of us participating. We each brought our own starting block to the February meeting, and we each left with someone else’s project. Each month, we receive instructions for the next step – adding one to four borders, with a specific theme. We take the project back to the next meeting, and pick up another person’s project for that month. At the January 2016 meeting, our quilt tops will have been added to by each participant, and we will get our own quilt top back. Until then, the projects are stored in plain paper bags, so that the progress on each quilt top will be a big surprise at the end.
In order to maintain the secrecy, I generally can’t show photos of the border I am working on, because I often include some of the original fabrics, or the color palette is very specific, and a photo would spoil the secret.
The theme this month is Stars, and our assignment is to add one border. As it happens, this month I’m using all fabrics from my stash and the colors are not specific to the project, so I don’t think anyone will be able to guess whose project this belongs to. I used a paper-pieced pattern for a wonky star that I designed several years ago.
