Angie's wedding quilt for Jackson

Angie, owner of Pieceful Quilting, made Hanging Gardens for her son Jackson and his bride, Lisa, a few months ago.  I don't have a picture of the entire quilt, but some close ups follow:

Round Robin

I joined a round robin focus group with five other women in my guild at the beginning of 2010.  It's a little frightening to work on someone else's quilt--especially when you don't know them well enough to know their color/fabric/design preferences.  I am SO pleased with the quilt I received back and I think the other women were equally pleased.  These were the rules of the challenge:


#1.  Center block is to be 14 inches finished (remember that it will be put on point so consider this when choosing your center block design).

#2.  Place center block on point and add a border 1 to 2 inches.

#3.  This round is to be 3 to 4 inches wide and include squares or triangles.

#4.  This round is to be 4 to 5 inches wide and be appliquéd. The appliqué may extend into the previous rounds if you so choose.

#5.  This round is to be 3 to 4 inches wide and include squares or triangles.

#6.  Your choice; let the quilt speak to you.  The quilt should be a cohesive whole.

And the only one that I have seen finished is Caroline's (quilted by Janet Heins) and here it is with a ribbon on it from our quilt show!
