WIP Wednesday - More Round Robin Quilting.

Thanks for all the lovely comments about my Round Robin quilting. I've been working away at it. A little bit here, a bit there. I have finished the first two "rounds" as above. Pebbled all the red and white half triangle squares. I have changed threads and am using the white I purchased back here. It is a bit shinier than the cotton I was using before, but you can't really tell unless you look and the only person who will look is me! It seems to be good thread, if I go to fast though it does break but otherwise no problems.

For these ones I just echo stitched as close as I could to the edge of the top white triangle and pebble quilted just that one. The rest of the block sort of puffs out but thats okay, if I pebble everything it will be as stiff as a board!

I have started on one side of the third "round". No pebbling here, just a straight stitch either side of the seam. This is a pain to do, a lot of short sew, turn, short sew, turn the quilt around again back the other way. But it will look effective I keep telling myself. Getting there....
