|Welcome to this six
month Quilt project!
beautifully blue quilt has lots of 'zing' with unexpected
orange, yellow and hot pink, and belongs to Jan Trackson
of Morayfield in south east Queensland. |
To complete the project you will need
a copy of the rules and general information, which
can be downloaded this month with the 'recipe' for
the first round of the quilt.
This Round Robin recipe is the basis for a beautiful
medallion quilt. Whether you build the quilt yourself
or share the next six months with a group of friends,
I'm absolutely sure that you will find it exciting,
challenging and satisfying. So, let's get on with
RULES OF A ROUND ROBIN
1. Do not show the owner her quilt at any time.
2. You may consult with any other participant or anyone
else for that matter.
3. Be committed and ready to pass on at the end of every
4. Be willing to share ideas and fabrics. Always use best
5. Don't whinge, whine or wince and expect to own a beautiful
6. Last, but possibly most important
. work on another's
quilt as you would want them to work on yours.
1. A 'floater' strip is a narrow strip/border added to the
edge of a quilt. It is always optional. Use it to adjust
the size of the quilt to make calculations for pieced borders
2. Owner should pass on, with her centre square, some of
the main fabric that she would like used throughout the
quilt. Remember that the main fabric and the centre square
sets the theme for the whole quilt.
. and if there
is something (calico, black or red etc) that you definitely
do not want in your quilt
. send a note in the parcel
with your project.
3. Consider passing on a small amount of a fabric that you
have featured in the border you've added
. it will
help the next participant to link borders.
4. It's a good idea to conduct a draw to determine the sequence
of the Round Robin. Number the names as they are drawn,
and then Number 1 always passes on to Number 2 and Number
2 on to Number 3 etc
. until the finished quilt
returns to the maker of the centre square.
5. It's great fun to organize a special get-together to
hand the quilts back to the owner/maker of the centre square.
All of the above informaiton is also included in this first
