No, that is not a typo, I've done lost my mind and have joined two Round Robins. Basically, we had too many people that wanted to participate in our first Round Robin, so Robyn made a second one.
What happens is, each person makes an 18" square center for our own quilt. We send it along with a little fabric and a note listing our likes and dislikes. Each month, we trade blocks and each person adds a border to the block that they've received. We don't see our block again until the end, when we've received a full quilt back that all of our friends have worked on. Make sense?
Here is an example...Here is Natalie's original block, I don't think she has my blog address. Natalie, if you do...look away now!!!
This is what I did with it:
I just love it! I actually wanted to keep this one, but I passed it on to the next person. My center was a (boring) Dresden plate, and believe it or not, I didn't take a picture of it. It was grays and yellows on a white background. With the pressure on, I couldn't figure out what to make and I was afraid of sending something out there that I was really attached to. When we all met to exchange, everyone was saying that they had the same problem. It is a good exercise in giving up creative control :)
For Robyn's Round Robin, I went with the Ghastly's. This fabric has been laying around just waiting for me to figure out what to do with.
