Round Robin Baby Quilts

My church quilt group makes baby quilts for the newborns of members. When the number of ready quilts is low we start a round robin. Each person selects several fabrics from our donated stash. The first person makes a square and passes it on to the next. (The square I made appeared here) I was totally excited about adding to the first but the second just didn't thrill me.
Sue started with these 9 fussy cut framed sea creatures. I seamed them together and added the zigzag border. The easy funky zigzag comes from Collaborative Quilting by Moran and Marston.

I was given the rail fence center. I added the pinwheels and fussy cut teddy bears. Clink on the picture for a close up and try to figure out what turned me off. Maybe its a generational thing.

What a lovely idea to give newborns a new quilt, I love it! Beautiful quilts, thanks for sharing, and yes, I did spy Spongebob in there!! xo

That zig zag border is fun.

I could never see what everybody saw in Spongebob. I guess I don't have a sense of humor or something.

That's a great idea for the quilts, I'm sure a baby doesn't know about spongebob, lol.

I love the Zig Zag border that was inspired by Collaborative quilting.... a terrific book! Ahh, Spongebob!

I'm a Spongebob fan but he does not equate into good quilting fabric, especially with teddy bears. The child will probably love it though.

Great quilts, Janet. I was having a hard time figuring out what you were talking about until I read the comments. I don't know much about SpongeBob since my granddaughters are all grown up. Blue's Clues was one thing I watched with Hannah! I'm out of the loop - LOL! Carol

A round robin is a good -- and fun -- idea for baby quilts.

I'm guessing you're not a fan of Sponge Bob Square Pants ;)
