Sorry for teasing you guys with my sneak peak earlier this week but now I can finally share with you the new long-term project I’m taking part in!
A small group of us from the 2014 New Quilt Blogger’s Blog Hop got together and decided to start a round robin style quilting bee. Many of us (myself included!) are new to this format so it’s exciting to be taking on a new challenge.
We decided to call our group Round Trip Quilts. It works by creating a starting block(s) and sending it to then next person on the mailing list. Each person adds a little bit to the quilt and eventually the quilt top will return to it’s original owner completely finished. Hence, the round trip part!
I debated for a while on what I wanted to do for my quilt start. We’d talked about giving each quilt a theme and I just didn’t really have a theme that was speaking to me. So I started looking through my Pinterest and was drawn to my color schemes folder and was just really loving the bright colors in this inspiration picture.
Round Trip Quilts now has a Flickr group and you can follow us on Instagram using #RoundTripQuilts!
