relaxing robin status


remember this? My relaxing robin is a little behind.....
yes I KNOW your fearless leader is not leading........
this whole "job" thing cuts into my free time

Anyway, I had added some piecing of "low volume" as a border to finish up some 
applique as I don't think I am done with that yet
I have too many pretty flowers I think I want to use

SO.........
I made gray cornerstones and have one flower at the top ready to ]
applique on
I am thinking the tulips in all 4 corners
and maybe some flowers in the low volume border and a butterfly or two
but I can applique as I go along


\
Here is the quilt inspector
he is tsk tsking my progress
(or LACK of)
there is always a smart aleck in the house



Here is a closeup of the corner where I will applique the tulip



and I need to figure out the borders as I don't think after they are sewn
that they will fit
so will need some kind of adjustment
not sure if I want something added to the previous border?
Or if I want to just have the triangles in certain places in this border with a plain border taking
up the slack
more decisions
BUT 
AM
LOVING
THE
PROGRESS
AND
PROCESS

APRIL IS-

5. using some of the fabric in the first border make another border of your choice

How is your relaxing robin coming along?
link up below and let everyone take a "peek"

  1. You're doing great! I was the leader of the Stay At Home Robin a couple of years ago, and I haven't finished my quilt yet. But I did add the last two borders a couple of weeks ago, so there is hope. I still have a couple of little touches to add to my applique border on the Relaxing Robin. And I need to try to get a jump on April since we're vacationing in Florida.
