Here's the finished product being admired by Suzanne's darling dog, Chloe Rose. I just love the way it turned out. This quilt will be a great keepsake for years to come, not to mention a bright and sunny quilt to snuggle under on those cold Pennsylvania winter days and nights. Did you notice the sunflowers on the corners? So cute the way the stem extends down the side of the quilt. What a wonderful, creative group of women!!

ROUND ROBIN IV
Here we are at the halfway point with Round Robin quilt #4. this came from my friend, Suzanne. How she finds time to quilt I'll never know since she spends so much time taking care of her family and running the family farm with her hubby. Nevertheless, she does beautiful work. This quilt reflects her sunny outlook with a beautiful appliqued sunflower on pink and white blocks. The challenges increase as the quilts are now getting bigger with more additions from other participants. How to top the previous addition? Well, I decided to pick up the pink and add in some yellow to highlight the sunflower. I added two rows of squares in three shades of pink and one yellow. In the corners I added a fifth fabric in black with a small sunflower print to carry on the theme.
