Remember the Row Robin?

Well we finally received out rows from the other participants in May....and they have been up on my "design wall" since then. But finally I just bit the bullet and said "let's get this thing done!" For the longest time I thought I was going to applique some stems and leaves on those giant lilies, but could not get it to look right...so I made up some more 4 patch borders and rearranged the order. I think with some clever machine stitching I could zip it up a notch.


I will probably make some yo-yo centres for the pairs of flowers and embroider some tea pouring out of the spout....maybe an applique butterfly or two with the baskets...I think I will call it Garden Tea Party.

The name you gave your round robin is so appropriate. It looks great!

Me too! I'd like to come to your garden tea party. I won't have to pull weeds.....will I?
You have done a marvelous job with this. Can't wait to see it quilted. Sadly mine is still waiting for attention.
