Modern Mini Mystery Round Robin

I have joined a fun round robin.
It is the
Modern Mini Mystery Round Robin.

We were to design a 6 1/2 inch block. Any technique.
We are divided into groups. We sent our starter block to the first person in our group. They added a border and sent it on to the next member.  My little baby will travel the world and come back to me in October.

The mystery part...
We do not know who has our block and we do not get to see it until the end. This was such a fun idea of Michele's from Quilts from my Crayon Box that I just had to join.

This was my starter block. I have no idea where she is, but I know she is having fun!



Remember,  Do not forget to go to Sew I Quilt and enter the giveaway!
There are some amazing prizes.
If you missed some of the Table Toppers Madame Samm has a link on her blog to a board showing them all. And there are a lot!

Happy Sewing
