Round Robin

Well, I think I finally figured out how to get a picture onto the blog! Although, the real trick will be if I can do it again! :0)
This is a picture of one of my bee members with her "Show and Tell". My group as a whole decieded to use her quilt pattern as our next project. Each member of the group is to make a beginning block, which will be a 9 patch. Then, the block will be handed to another member who will add on a row to that first block. It will be passed around to each member until the quilt has nine rows around. There are 12 members in my group. I am not sure yet if everyone will be participating or not.
We will start with a 4 patch of 2" squares (finished size). That 4 patch will become the center square of the 9 patch which is made up of 4" squares. Then around that the 2" squares, and around the next row will be the 4" squares again, etc.....Until we have gone around 9 times. Very easy sewing. We are doing it as a lesson in color values as each row goes from light to dark.
We are actually going to make two 9 patch blocks that are the same. One to pass around in the group project, the other we are to finish on our own. It should be a lot of fun to see how different the two quilts end up! We are still talking about the possibility of donating the finished quilts to some sort of charity. That will remain for a future discussion, once we see how well the project goes, and how many of us are going to do it. I am planning on participating in this project. We have not done a group project for quite a while.
Happy Valentines Day!!!!!


  1. I wish you a lot of fun with the project! I have not participated in a Round Robin, I'm curious to see how it works!

  2. This should be a great project for donation...unless of course you just can't part with it. Welcome to blogland!
