How ours works is that each individual player designs her own background out of wool and in the crazy quilt style. It can be any shape but the size in this instance is limited to 8”. I am also taking part in another RR and showed you how I constructed my base for that one HERE.
Each of us decides upon a theme and then appliqués their design in wool on the base. Once that is done, it is sent on to the next player who adds their design and then forwards it on. The round robin is complete when all four players have appliquéd something on each of the four pincushion bases.
Here is mine which will be sent on to Karen and she will add her magic touch to it.
And a little closer up…
My theme will be determined by Karen because she can continue with the Fall theme or add another season, bird, etc. When the pincushion finally reaches home after making the rounds, it is up to the ‘owner’ to decide whether to add anything or to leave it as is before turning it into a pincushion.
I’m also taking part in a pincushion exchange on the Jo Morton Stitchers yahoo group. I completed my pincushion yesterday morning and am working on a couple of other goodies to include in the package before sending it off. It is an original design and I’ve been asked by one of the gals to offer it as one of my FFF’s (First Friday Freebie).
What do you think?
