This strip was made by Jane, who used alphabet white on white fabric to show communication and blue squares to represent the military mail - blueies, after the blue airmail paper that used to be used. Triangles show the questions and answers flowing around the world.
Marjolyn made this strip. Interlocked squares for the families, Stars of Destiny, and Delectable Mountains for lifes ups and downs.
Nerida used the purple squares in this strip to show a travelling solider, always part of a family, but not always in the same place.
Benta used a high shot of the choir members, where she says their heads seemed to tessellate - so I've got some of her fabulous hexies representing that.
So there you have it! I'm thrilled that people put so much thought into making the strips (and explaining their thoughts). I feel very lucky to have had so many talented people working on my Round Robin.
*All* I've got to do now is to decide how best to put them together, and construct the quilt!
I shall let it all mature on my design wall for the moment, whilst I consider the final purpose of the quilt (sofa throw? bed quilt? wall hanging?) which will help to determine its shape, size and the quilting that it will receive.
