My lst round robin block

Waaaay back in August, my first block in the Spring Fling Round Robin 2 was mailed to the next person on my list and the above block is what I did.

…. and this is the finished quilt. What a delightful quilt! :o) It truly is amazing to see the difference from my first stitches to the last and the ladies after me brought my part to life. In fact, when I checked out the final version, at first I could not see my block as there was so much going on.
Go here to this post to read more about the quilt. Be sure to check back to the main blog as there are more quilts to be revealed over the next few weeks and they will be awesome.
Have a great day!

Edit: Unfortuntely, I am not the person to own this lovely quilt. It is Margaret (hostess of our swap and the Four Seasons Quilt Swap 4 and 5). For this quilt, I started the block; then another person added the 1st border; then another person added the 2nd border; then another person quilted it,added the binding and label and then mailed the finished quilt to Margaret. When you consider the number of people working on this quilt, it is so amazing that it turned out like this.

Amazing! I would never do all that applique! Did someone do the quilting as well or did everyone quilt their section?

it's true, this piece turned out amazing
and it was a real challenge for me to create that applique pattern, I had to fill all this white open space

too delighted that Margaret loves it, that's all i wanted

In answer to Joyce's comment the final stage of quilting was mine to do and at first when faced with such a busy quilt I thought whatever can I add to this - so I just quilted and quilted and quilted it to death, I think not a square inch was left unquilted - great fun and doable in such intensity on a small piece like this
