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

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


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"

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.

This is really lovely--so scrappy and pretty. The black border was an inspired choice...hugs, Julierose
