Row Robin


A bit ago I received my rows back from the Round (Row) Robin that Barb hosted last year. While cleaning the sewing room I came across the bag that had my rows in it and realized I never posted the rows on my blog. Thanks ladies my rows are wonderful!


This is the picture that Jenn posted over on the Round Robin blog.  Her floor helps show the colors better than my white design wall does.

Now I have to decide how I want to finish this quilt. When I joined this swap I was thinking about adding strips of black between the rows. Now that the rows are at my house I'm not sure what I want to do. I'm almost tempted to separate each block from the rows and then border each block in black or put black strips in between the blocks. For now, it will sit in my to do box until I get a better idea of what I want to make.

What gorgeous Rows you received in your swap. I would seperate the rows with WHITE.

They're beautiful blocks, and I think a sashing around the block would really accent each one.

I agree with luv2quilt2. I think sashing around each block is the way to go.

What fun! The black background does show the quilt well. Have fun deciding what to do with your blocks!

The blocks are just gorgeous - I think however you put them together, it will look great!

Whatever you decide to do, white or black, sashing or no this is going to be a really lovely quilt. Reminds me of the bright colorful tropical prints you used to make my little zippered purse. Clean, clear, saturated color.

I definitely think sashing is a must and after looking at your blocks on both a dark and light background, I would go with white. The black will make the colors pop to be sure, but I think white will give it a lightness and playfulness that is more consistent with the blocks themselves.
