Welcome to this six month Quilt project!

This 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 it….

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 month.
4. Be willing to share ideas and fabrics. Always use best quality fabrics.
5. Don't whinge, whine or wince and expect to own a beautiful quilt.
6. Last, but possibly most important…. work on another's quilt as you would want them to work on yours.

GENERAL INFORMATION
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 easier.
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 month installment.

Thank you to Cheryl Denny for her wonderful work and sharing her love for the Round Robin Quilt and offering this project to our visitors.
