This is my poster after I cut into six pieces.
I chose stip # 6 which was the bottom. This is what I wrote in the journal that went with the project. This is a picture of the box I sent my pieces in with candy for each person. Cute hugh!
Please take a picture of the strip you make with the disposable camera enclosed and don't forget to sign the label enclosed.
Record anything in the journal you want while working on the quilt.
Thanks for being part of the round robin---Shelia Chandler
Strip #1 was pieced by my mother and this is what she wrote in my journal.
April 2008-I finished my strip on Monday and had a good time working on it. I never thought I would be able to machine applique. Just have to learn to go SLOW. Hope you like it.--Love Betty Adams (MOM)
Strip #5 was pieced by Susan Perham and this is what she wrote in my journal.
July 2008- Hi Shelia! I'm writing in July because June was a month of vacation for our family. I chose a piece that I thought was very interesting. I struggled and FINALLY gave up after many attempts at creating a shadow for the pot on strip 5. I could NOT get it to match. I think you'll have to do it when you quilt it. However, I am quite pleased with the silk ribbon I used to tie the bamboo together. I hope you enjoy!--Susan Perham
Strip #3 was pieced by Dee Ross and this is what she wrote in my journal.
August 2008- Shelia, I enjoyed working on your poster. It was the smallest one yet! I put the shadows on with colored pencils. It was the only way I could think of doing it. It turned out o.k. Thanks for the goodies too!! Hope you like the poster. Love, Dee Ross
Strip #4 was pieced by Brandee Lewis and this is what she wrote in my journal.
Sept. 20, 2008--Shelia, I hope you are enjoying the round robin. I enjoyed making yours. It was nice to have a small strip. I found it easier to match up. I hope you love the finished product. I'm getting anxious to see mine! Enjoy--Brandee Lewis
Strip #2 was pieced by Elizabeth King and this is what she wrote in my journal.
November 2008--It's done!! I'm not artistic, but had fun with my limited skills. Have fun putting it all together! Elizabeth King
We all put a lot of hard work into designing each part of every quilt that we worked on. It was so intersting to see all of the finished pieces.
Below is a picture on the left of the poster taped back together and the finished strips on the right that I received back from all of my round robin quilters. Now it is up to me to complete the poster wallhanging. I plan on doing a lot of thread painting, this should be a great project to hone those skills.
I have been dreading the completion of this project for a long time as I was not quite sure what to do with all of the various colors of backgrounds etc., but I know think I am doing to piece it together and just have some fun thread painting! I'll blog about the progress as it goes.
Hope you have a great day quilting.....I've got to run to work now.
