Round RobinThe 2018 Round Robin quilts were revealed! Back in January six quilters each made a starter block and put it in a bag with some pieces of fabric (as much as they wanted to include). The blocks were secretly passed in rotation to the other "robins" who added on to them - sometimes using only the provided fabrics and sometimes introducing new ones - and the quilt tops grew. Every two months they rotated until everyone had contributed to all the quilts, and in December they were revealed - it was the first time the quilters who made those original starter blocks got to see what they had grown into. It's always fun to see the results, as they're all so unique! This was our second round robin - many thanks to Netta for coordinating it again this year!
Stacie's quilt and its colours were inspired by a fun lobster print fabric she included in her starter block.
Esther provided a lot of colourful Cotton & Steel fabrics, and got a lot of different blocks and shapes.
Darlene's has circles, pinwheels and interesting borders, with the Tula Pink "Freefall" bird featured a few times.
Kate's grew into a playful assortment of 'wonky' shapes and paper piecing in four Kona solids.
Michele's quilt of bright colours on black and gray was inspired by the prompt she provided: "stacked shapes"
Netta asked for pink and gray on white... and she likes medallion layouts, so that worked out well!
Here are the rest of the quilts we saw in December...
Remember all those tree blocks from the November block lotto? Natalie won them, and here's the completed quilt!
