Round Robin


Good Morning everyone!


I have never participated in a Round Robin before this year.  If you don't know in a round robin each participant makes a beginning block.  Each group probably has it's own rules for the size of the block etc.  There are a set number of people in your group.  We started with five but due to health issues of one participant ended up with four.  You mail your finished block to one person on the list and they add a border to the block.  They mail your block to the next person on the list and so on until it gets back to you again.  Since there were four of us, I worked on the blocks of three other people.  Here is the block I used for my starting point.  I made this to try Susan Cleveland's Piping Hot Curves technique.  I am so happy with the quilt that came back to me.  I would never have come up with this on my own.  These woman are so talented I am in awe of the work they have done.  This group was through Shirley Patterson's learningfa yahoo group.  It was a little frightening for me to add to someone else's quilt but I am so glad I allowed myself this opportunity to grow.
