A Mini Round Robin

Kathy Shaw hosted a round robin recently requiring each participant to send her three pieced “rectangles” (4”x6”). She then embellished one of the rectangles for each of us. I don’t know how in the world she managed to stitch all of them as there were quite a few who signed up. She did it and they’re all wonderful! My other two were sent to other participants and I received two to stitch. I showed you the Christmas one for Arlene White in an earlier post.

Here is the one I embellished for Shari Jensen. She wanted a Southwest theme so I just concentrated on the seams and tried to get the feeling of the southwest, not necessarily authentic design.

The finished ones that came back to me are beautiful. I used hand dyed fabrics by Chris Daly which I sell in color coordinated packets on my website. I’ll have to include each of them in a special project. Thank you all!!
