If you haven't been to the Quiltandneedle.com and see our albums of the ongoing Round Robin, you're missing some beautiful beginnings. Rounds robins are so much fun to do. You get to see your friends work, you stretch your imagination in finding just the right material and patterns, and sometimes you have to step outside your box and buy fabrics for a medallion, that you wouldn't of thought of buying before. But that's part of the fun.
Here is a link to the albums:
This is for group #1.
Here is for group #2
And group #3
For some people, they love to look at the albums and see what border the next person on her list has added to her medallion. For me, the anticipation of seeing my Round Robin complete, without seeing it in it's different stages, is part of the fun of these. So I am NOT going to peek...it's going to be hard though... As we all discuss this project here:
And when your friends are oohing and aahhing over a new border (while still keeping it secret), it gets really hard not to look.
They are many different ways you can do Round Robins. You can make them in all sizes too. I have chosen to make ours a nice wall hanging size. That is why there are three groups. So that our quilts don't get too big. We started off with a medallion that was between 10.5 inches and 12.5 inches. Then send it to the next person on our list, and they put a border on it that is between 3.5 inches and 4.5 inches.
We are all having so much fun doing these, that I'm sure it's going to be an ongoing project. This one will be completed in late Summer. And then I'll be taking sign-ups for another one.
I, too, am a fabric lover...and proud of it! If it wasn't because of all the friendly, loving woman I've meet online ( and a few in person) I don't know if I ever would of discovered all the beautiful fabrics out there. Jess has many fabric lines in her store, and they are all gorgeous. I love the feel of quality material.
So pop over and join us thequiltandneedle.com make some new friends, discover some new fabrics, and have a good time!
