It's A Challenge! Hooray!

My quiilt buddies came today and we showed our center blocks and then drew numbers to begin the "round robin" challenge exchange.  Each one of us in the round robin exchange will *secretly* add a border to each block and then pass it on to the next person.  We won't see our blocks until each of our buddies has added a border to it and then we'll get it back - as a total surprise.  Should be fun!  So here's our blocks:

 This beautiful block was made by Ellen.
 And this beauty was created by Drin.
 This "welcome" pineapple was made by Joan.
And this is my contribution to the challenge.  I made this block about 20 years ago (!) and have been saving it for something really special.  This is it!

The interesting thing about our blocks is that they are all applique and they are all "on point."  We plan to take about a month per rotation (skipping December, of course) so we'll be back with our finished blocks for show and tell in a few months!  Stay tuned!  Should be exciting.
