Hi Everyone! Why don't we try to get a few more people to join our group and see if we can get some Round Robins started. I am going to send a blog to the Lone Star Galz, all Texas Ladies, and see if any of them are interested.

I participated in my first round robin adventure last year, The idea had been mentioned at our quilt guild but never got off the ground. So a group of 5 quilters in my area decided to do it amongst ourselves. It was fun and we all ended up with wonderful items. We did not have a lot of exact rules. We were to start out with a 12" square and include some of the fabric that you wanted to have in the quilt. [One lady instead submitted a preprinted panel about 12 x 15 inches] She ended up with a larger finished item. The others were table cloth size. We all agreed that is was lots of fun and we had some very clever border ideas that showed up. I also found that it got me 'out of my box' by having to think and work with different colors than I was used to. One rule was this: We could not see our quilt until the reveal. That day was excitting. I would do it again! If I knew how to put a picture here, I would include one. Perhaps someone can give me instructions. I am not real computer smart.

Very nice quilt top, Claudia. Marilyn, yes, I thought doing a round robin would be fun. The photo in my avatar was a round robin at our guild.We also allowed one month per round. Please don't hesitate to jump in if any of you have ideas. And please forgive me for not being more organized before starting this group. I just finished a mystery quilt and now I am taking a judging workshop this week. I will have more time after the workshop. Vicky

Hello Everyone. Has there been any thoughts by anyone to do a Round Robin with the members here yet? Did I miss anything about this? Can we do it? Does anyone know the logistics of this type of venture?

Each member set up a plastic box with a 12 1/2" in block and enough fabric to make a small throw or crib size quilt. Then it was passed to the next person in the group who added a small border and a four inch border, the next peroson added another narrow border. Then a 6" border was added, some members had a hard time getting that done and we had to add a month. Next a three inch border was added. Then a four inch strip on the top and bottom. At that point you got your box back and were to add another four inch strip to the top and bottom. This made it Kiddie Comfort size. Here is a picture of mine, but it's not quilted yet.

I've participated in and organized several round robins over the years. I enjoy the reveals and the creativity of all the participants. What kind of rules or guidlines did you use with your guild's round robin?

The night group of our Guild has always had a hard to turning in the required two "Kiddie Comforts" per year. Last year I lead two groups of five in doing these quilts Round Robin Style, it was a big hit and most of the quilts have been completed and turned in. We're going to do it again this year, infact we just started. Mine isn't quilted yet but I'll post a picture here soon.
