Round Robin Round 1

Round Robin (Medium)

Four of us decided to do a Round Robin this year. We each made a center block of our choice, gathered the fabrics we wanted to be part of the quilt and then pass it on to the next person who then adds a row of their own design around the block. Three things that I love about this Round Robin: #1- The other 3 quilters in this group have amazing talent (a bit intimidating actually). #2 – There are no deadlines; it is a very loose schedule. #3 – Each of us will only have to do three rounds. I would not want to do this with a larger group. (following pics were taken in a restaurant without the greatest lighting.)

Here are the original blocks:

Here is round one for each block:

When I was working on round 1 and began pinning it to the center block, it hit me: “I’m working on someone else’s quilt!” (I did the round with the polka dot fabrics above.) A bit intimidating but I did like the results. I haven’t a clue what I’ll be doing for round two. Time is not my friend right now, so I haven’t even pulled out the fabrics and quilt to begin to get ideas. Best of all, I know they will be patient. I also know that whatever is sewn onto my quilt will be amazing!

  1. I love your original block. These different styles make me realize where I haven’t gone and don’t know about quilting. Great centers and rounds from everyone.

    Thanks for fitting Janet into Fall retreat. I know she will love it and learn a lot.

    All the centers and borders look great.

  3. How fun for you and your Robin friends! I would like to join one of these sometime, or organize one here in my neck of the woods. Yours are going to be AMAZING!

  4. Seems that each first round was certainly worthy of the original block. Each round added to the original designs in a synergistic manner. I look forward to seeing the progress of these works.
