Round Robin roundup

Well, I have finished the last round of the Round Robin that I started with three other gals from my guild back in the spring. We had good intentions of completing it by August but, as always, other projects, such as family, life, vacations, etc. kept us from finishing sooner. But these ladies are as laidback about quilting deadlines as I am , so no worries. We will get our tops back on Tuesday. But I thought I would share my contribution to this one with you. The last round's requirement was a border with squares and rectangles. I just did two alternating four patch blocks to make a checkerboard border using the fabrics that were used throughout the piece. I think it came out pretty good.

My DH is out with buddies tonight so I have a free evening! Yeah!! I am putting the finishing touches on my fiber, fiber fiber Postcards, working on my journal quilts which I am hopelessly behind on and hope to start my December challenge quilt this weekend.
My back is feeling a bit better. I have a great physical therapist who is really getting the kinks out and getting me mobile again but it's a lot of work! I have a problem sitting for extended periods of time so my desire to sit and sew for hours is not a good idea.
I had promised myself not to start any new projects or challenges but I got an invite to do a class with Tonya at Lazy Gal Quilting and couldn't say no! So I will be sketching some ideas for that project this weekend also. Hope everyone gets quilty this weekend. Next week, I'll post pictures of all the Round Robin tops as well as the Parade of Pigs!
