A sneak peak of what I contributed to the RRs I received

Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh - don't tell anyone or go linking this post to your blog, but I have decided to share with you here a "Sneak Peak" of what I contributed to the RRs I received in the RR I participated in all last year. It is amazing how each of the quilts took on their own personalities and are so unque. The sky was the limmit on what to do with what you got.

Here is the 1st RR I received from Missmikol. I added the flying geese boarder. I did also add another thin red boarder but forgot to take a photo before mailing.Next in the RR rotation I received this RR from mylifesabeach in Hawaii. I added a pink lattice like boarder because her theme was "flowers in the garden." Before it came time to mail to her - I found out that she was the 1st to receive my RR square and had never done a thing to it and also had antoher RR waiting to be worked on so the cordinator removed her from the swap and I had to hold off sending her hers until mine and the other gals were mailed off to people who helped out and gout ours caught up. (this was a major part of the delay in the RR year)

Then sometime in the summer I recveived this RR quilt that belongs to Sueluvs2quilt. She also had a garden them but much different than the one I had just worked on. To me it said "I need a fence" ;c)
Following that one, came Terri911's RR top - which had a flowers theme - noticing a pattern here - just about all of us did flowers of some sort but each different! ;c) Terri's also listed scrappy so - scrappy is what I did. I posted about my progress when I worked on this one back in 2006.and the last one I received to work on is shown in my previous post. :c)

Hope you enjoyed the sneak peak - when I get photos of these RR's finished I will be sure and share those with you too - and all the other RR quilts in the other quilts too! Happy Weekend ~Bonnie


  1. *giggles* Yup, I enjoyed the sneak peak! I really like your color choice for your center square and I hope you get it back soon!

    RR in general... are better off in person, or at least that's how I feel. And nope, I haven't joined one, heard too many horror stories.

  2. I participated in a RR about ten years ago, what fun! I was thrilled beyond belief with mine and thoroughly enjoyed working on the others', too! You do beautiful work. When will all the rotations be completed and you get yours back?

  3. Bonnie, Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your comment. Once my friend has her blog ready for "launching" I'll add her to my list. She hasn't started posting yet but is doing some adjustments to get it the way she likes it.

    Your quilts are beautiful. I see I have a lot of catch-up reading to do here on your blog.

  4. I am so with you on the RR thing. I was in one with my group within a year of starting quilting and while it was the best possible thing I could have done for myself skill wise, it was incredibly hard to work on someone else's quilt and they got so big!!
    We have just started another one 6 years later and were making miniatures on the same premise, that should be interesting. Cheers, Tracey
