Robins three and four

Two weeks have passed since you last saw my Round Robin quilt, and that means two more prompts.

Prompt #3 was hourglass, and like the spool prompt, it had me a little stumped. I don’t have a lot of experience with it. Though there are several ways to make it; I think the “nicest” is as a quarter-square triangle. I’m getting better at them, but they can still be tricky.

Like the spool, I decided to wait for prompt #4.

And boy, was I excited when I found out prompt #4 was geese! I knew just what to do

First, I made up a whole boatload of giant geese

These geese are 8.5″ x4.5″ – the biggest geese I’ve made yet.

Those geese got sewing into sets of four, then each set was sewn facing another set. and boom! Hourglass!

I still needed something for the corners though. So I whipped up some HSTs, and sewed them to some plain squares and boom!

Put them all together, and what do you got???

Another fabulous round on another fabulous quilt!

  2. Your interpretation of the prompts is producing an amazing quilt. I have never made flying geese that large but will remember that when I am looking for border ideas. Your colors and fabrics play together very nicely.
