Lisa's Modern Mini Mystery Round Robin quilt

Hi! I'm Lisa Cox. I live outside a very small town in rural North Central Missouri.
I'm rather new to quilting. In fact, last month I finished my second quilt. I'm a total
newbie to round robins. This was my first.
I started out with a block called the Amish Twist. It was supposed to be a paper pieced
block, but I hate dealing with paper, so I put it on thin white fabric. I think someone told
me once that is called foundation piecing? This is a picture of my center block after the
borders have been put on. It never occurred to me to take a picture of it before I sent it
off. LOL

When I received my little block back, tears came to my eyes. You guys ROCK!!! It is so
beautiful! And so many different borders. I was trying to figure out how I was going to
turn it into a wall hanging when my husband saw it. He immediately said how cool it was and
how he thought that it would be great as the center of a quilt for our bed! It is the right colors.
Now, my husband is not into quilts at all. He can't visualize what anything will look like just
by looking at colors or patterns. He has to see the finished product. So for him to say that it
was cool! And that he wanted it for a quilt is amazing.
So, I'll say again. YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!

This is a picture of my block with all the neat borders. Sorry for the horrid pictures, but I didn't
have time to iron it after I got off work. I wanted to make sure Michele got this in plenty of time.

This one was one of the ones I had a challenge trying to think of what to add. I LOVE the final product. So are you going to keep adding 2-3 inch borders until it is bed sized? :D
