Round Trip Quilts

A small group of bloggers from 2014 New Quilt Blogger's Blog Hop thought it would be fun to get together and form a round robin style quilting bee for the US and Canada called Round Trip Quilts.
The way this bee works is that each person makes a starting block and then mails it to the next person on the list.  With each rotation the quilt grows with a new border or section being added each time.  The quilt continues to grow as it is passed around the group and eventually makes a round trip back to the original quilter as a beautiful finished quilt top!

Our Schedule is as follows. With each new round I'll update the links below so be sure to check back often!

  1. Did you all stop making borders or just stop posting? I've been having fun following the quilts' progress but haven't seen any updates on the blog since border 5. Am I just not finding them on this site? The most recent one I found is Chelsea's quilt border 6 by Leanne.


I love hearing from you!
