Groups of participants are formed, usually 4-6 people. Each person makes a center block and passes it to the next person in the group. That person then adds to the center block. It could be borders or blocks, maybe on one side, perhaps all sides. After that round is finished, it moves to the next person and so forth until it has made it around to every one in the group.
We can specify colors or size, provide fabric, suggest a theme. Or like me...let them 'have at it'! Just have fun!
That being said, here's my center block for the Round Robin. You may recognize those blocks from my Orange and Black paper pieced quilt. I was testing block sizes for the pattern I'm attempting to write.
My center block is a rectangle measuring 12 3/4" x 15 1/4". It'll be interesting to see if it stays that way! I used pinks, corals and oranges to kick off the festivities, but left the color choice to the next in line. I hope I don't stress them out with my lack of guidelines!
Look at me! I used prints! I needed a little extra width for my block and a row of geese came to mind. A row of very tiny geese! These actually should be called 'Flying Goslings', they are just little babies! Super cute measuring in at a whopping 2" x 1".
Tomorrow we will pass our blocks to the next in line and I have to say, I'm excited to see what I get to work on!! Suspense!
I'll keep you posted on how this all plays out! Have you done a Round Robin before? Did you recommend colors, themes or fabrics?
