Just finished the first round of my ostrich round robin last evening. As I mentioned yesterday those little half square triangle units looked too wonky--curving away, seams anything but 1/4 inch. I hated it!! If there is anything I have learned from doing medallion styled quilts--you got to be reasonably accurate.
So I drew up the 18 inch completed bands in EQ, printed 4 to the page and taped the 3 pages together. Oh, so much better now.
I should have taken the feathered star that was hanging behind it down first, LOL but for her closeup this was okay. It looks a little plain in the large triangle areas and I would like to put a little appliqued flower in that spot but I think I better see what the next round instructions are before I do that. It would be a nice spot for some hand quilting if I don't put a little pansy or something there.
I am still debating what to do with Aline's round robin though---but basically I am alternating between 3 choices. When I was stuck in bed on Sunday and looking at quilt books, there was a 4th possible choice, LOL. Until I dig out that tape measure there is no need even saying definitely what my final solution will be. Matches and removal of the previous round are not allowed, LOL.
I have a bunch of fall leaf colored fabrics gathered for a block that I will show the Belles today for a BOM--it looks tesselated but is basically squares with something like a prairie point that makes it LOOK that way. Maybe for a fall wallhanging........... and it just occured to me that it would make a fantastic border on my own circulating round robin.
As usual I am going to be late if I don't hit the shower soon--
