Round Robin Fun!!!

Four bloggers have conspired to have some fun with a round robin mini. The bloggers in question are Julie of Pink Doxies, Sandra of mmmquilts, Tish of  Tish's Adventures in Wonderland and little ole me.
It is a simple round robin were we each start with a 6 1/2'' centre block, which is then mailed to the next person to work on they add either  3'' to all four sides or maybe even 6 inches to two adjoining sides. With a maximum of 6 inches added to the quilt size.  And then off to the next person till it gets back to the original owner. By the time we get it back it will have grown to a maximum of 24''. Oh yeah and anything goes, paper piecing, improve, fabric, even shape. I admit to being a little apprehensive, but then I think of who is adding to it and have no hesitation at all. I know whatever they add will be fine. It will be better than fine it will be fantastic!

Without further ado here is my centre block. You can read about the creation of this block here.

Tish said she didn't think I could call it an oops block anymore. I've been trying to come up with a name for it with little success. So it will stay as oops for awhile longer, maybe till she has finished growing.

This is going to be so much FUN! And all of you get to see what we add to each other's quilt along the way. So please go take a look at the blocks of my fellow participants. Julie, Tish and Sandra. Want to have some fun of your own grab some friends and start your own round robin.

This is going to be fun to watch progress. I am so miffed that I have been missing your blog posts, hopefully I have rectified that, Cindy! I hope you are well.

Your Oops is a great center block for the round robin Cindy! I'm also looking forward to how you develop it as a pattern the sneak peaks were wonderful!

I am really looking forward to working on this one, and hope I can keep the feel of it going. I keep seeing a star through the window. OTOH, I think it would be fabulous to work it on point, too. As I say, can't wait!

I did a happy dance when I saw that you chose the oops block! I was secretly hoping it would be this block :)
