Round Robin ... Border 3

Jennifer's request was a New Hampshire themed quilt, so it's what she got. Before you go thinking I am morbid putting die on this beautiful quilt, our state motto is, "Life Free or Die." She wanted this!


I was a little hesitant adding to this beautiful center and having to cut down one of Jenn's perfectly paper pieced quarter circle to perfectly fit the corner. I just love everything about this quilt and want to keep it for myself! Ok, I may have printed another set of papers to at least make the saying for myself, also being a NH native. 


I added these two little shinning stars because well, that is my favorite part of NH being able to see so many stars out at night :)

  1. Your addition looks great! I like how the quarter circle corner echos back to the center. :)

  2. This looks so good! Paper piecing those letters is slow going, but it is perfect! I can't wait for my turn with this quilt...

  3. As a Mass resident I immediately got it! I love this quilt. I've never done a round robin but this is the first time I've looked at a quilt and though "I've got to give a round robin a try"

    Your letters are wonderful, and the thought behind the stars is great. That's one of my favorite things about getting away from the city is the number of stars you can see on a clear night.

  4. I love how this quilt is turning out. Now I am starting to wonder if we even have a state motto here.

  5. I totally admit it; I thought you had a very morbid addition when I saw the image in my blog reader, so I looked up the phrase and decided to give you a pardon if a NH theme was involved. Now that I've gotten over my initial shock, I appreciate you addition, and think you did a great job, even if your home state is a bit over-dramatic about their free living.

  20. Had to stop and say that is a totally great, totally unique quilt. I get the impression that the recipient is a tad hair excited about it. And who can blame her. You aren't gifted with a heritage quilt everyday. I love the motto, but I wish it was in Latin. Oh well, amazing work!
