Crazy Quilt Round Robin 4

I have finished the next round in the Southern Cross Crazies Round Robin. Six of us from the group are participating in the current round robin. What is a round robin?  Well the rules are slightly different with each one but with this one we had to make up some 6" square base blocks and send them on to the next person on the list of participants.

When you receive the blocks you pick one and decorate it with crazy quilting stitches and then post them off to the next person. Eventually all the blocks get embroidered and you receive your own blocks back. It's up to you what you do with them after that.

This round I received Maureen B's blocks. She wanted us to only sew on the seam lines in neutral colours and no motifs, beads or lace.

Here is what some of the others had already done for her. I noticed that they couldn't help themselves and added some heart motifs.

It was actually hard at first to only sew on the seam lines and not add any motifs, but I got away with it by sewing some wide seam embroidery and it went very quickly.

This is what it looked like when I had finished.

Only one more round to go, I wonder what the last lot of blocks will look like? I enjoy getting the parcel in the mail and see what the others have done.

Bye for now,

Thanks Robbie, I liked working on it, I was surprised because I usually use a lot of colour
