Round Robin BIG REVEAL

About 18 months ago, twelve of my quilty friends and I started an adventure. We decided to do a round robin, medallion style. ;-)

Annette Rawlinson
Each of us made a center and then passed it from friend to friend over the last year and a half.

Most of us never saw ours until the BIG REVEAL yesterday at our monthly Epic Sew Day.

Each quilt top was SPECTACULAR!!!

The detail and time spent was phenomenal!

Everyone was so happy with their top.

Having something so special, from all of your sewing buddies is hard to describe!

For the BIG REVEAL, a few of the quilters daughters helped us out with the quilt holding  ;-)

Katie Gardner
Each medallion has such a unique personality and feel. 

Katie is thrilled!
I am astounded that so many creative minds can make such a unified piece of art. 

April Mazzoleni
Each quilt is so special. 

April's quilt is HUGE!!! 109" square
Each quilt is so different. 

Konda Luckau
Each quilt represents 100's of hours.

Four of the ladies were not able to be there for the BIG REVEAL.  So we didn't get to see four of the quilts either :(. Hopefully we will all get to see them soon!

This beauty is mine!  I LOVE IT!!!  I never could have imagined this GORGEOUS top when I made my little Matryoshka center!  I can't wait to get it quilted!!!

So much was learned by by us all during this whole process. Lots of growth on my part alone. I am so happy to have been able to participate with these amazing ladies!!!
