I am part of a round robin group made up of quilters from the Plum and June New Blogger Hop last summer. We are on our 3rd round of this round robin, and I’m having a lot of fun and being challenged to continue to come up with something good enough for each of these amazing quilts!
This round I have the center from Chelsea at Patch the Giraffe. She started us off with four paper pieced stars from solids and a low volume background. She didn’t specify how the additions had to be made, just requested that they be solids with low volume backgrounds. Her original center can be found here.
Next, it went to Christina (WiPs and Tuts) who added the two side borders.
Kim from Ties that Bind Quilting added the row along the bottom, or rather the top now that I notice Chelsea’s original orientation.
Then it was my turn… You can tell I was working late on this and how dark and stormy it was so far in January by my complete and total inability to get good in-process photos.
First, I pulled my solids and realized I needed to buy more because I had used up my stash. I like using solids, but don’t have a huge stash of them, but was still surprised by how little I had.
Luckily these are colors that I personally enjoy, so I had no problem adding a few to the stash.
I used the “Goosing Borders” pattern from Jeli Quilts on Craftsy. I printed out 3 pages, which is 6 sections and got started! Once each section was done, I alternated them to create the wave you see below.
Chelsea, I hope you like it because I love how your quilt is turning out! I enjoyed getting to work in this color palette, and if you decide you don’t want this – I will totally take it off your hands for you!
