Last year I participated in a cross stitch round robin featuring the designer Mirabilia.  I designed the layout, but the stitchers got to pick out their favorite designs. It's finally finished so I thought I'd share.  (It's much sparklier in person)

I modified the border and lettering from a design I found in some UK xstitch magazine to fit the layout i wanted.   It took a bit of math to get it to work out propperly.  The way the border is layed out to fit the large and small squares is the only thing I actually designed myself. 

Each large square is 70 x 70 stitches, over 2 on 32 ct linen.  All the designs themselves were created by Nora Corbett of Mirabilia.  The participants got to chose a design from their own stash.  The premise was that we all had a lot of her designs that we loved but didn't have the time/space to stitch/display them all. 

I stitched the border, the small squares, the bottom left large square.I also attached the beads on the bottom middle and top right large squares.  The stitchers were from US, Canada, New Zealand and Australia.

what a fantastic idea for a round robin. I love mirabilia too. The whole piece looks gorgeous but that border really sets it off. Very fitting for the fairies.
