Round the World Round Robin

I have a thing for little red sewing machines.  I paid $5 for 6 "opportunities" at a State Quilt Festival several years back and my name was drawn to win this little sweetie...

I'm sending this little 6-1/2" darling off on a trip around the world to places like France, Australia and... Montana! Woohoo!  Eight ladies in my Modern* Mini Mystery Round Robin group will trade blocks each month, adding up to a 2" border with each trade.  By the time she returns, this little darling will be the perfect size wall hanging for my sewing studio! 

Bon Voyage, little Ruby, enjoy your travels!  Make new friends!

*Still trying to figure out my place in the "Modern" quilting world.  And what constitutes a modern quilt?  I added grey fabric... does that count? 

By the way, you can find this FREE paper-pieced pattern by Sewhooked at Craftsy.com ←

Happy Sewing!
