Round Robin for Rhonda

September 12, 2011 at 9:37 pm Leave a comment

My local quilt club, The Old and New Quilters of Gallipolis, has been working on round robin quilts, with maybe 5 quilts going at once. For those who are not familiar with round robin quilts, Someone starts the project with a central block, then sends it to someone else to add a border, and it continues until the agreed upon number of borders have been added, in our case, three borders. Today I finished the outer border of a quilt top that started with a beautiful paper pieced star created by Rhonda M. And here it is!

I added everything outside the blue and black checkerboard border. The corner blocks were paper pieced and I used 14 different fabrics because I wanted a scrappy look, which Rhonda loves.

This has really been a fun project, one I would like to do again, maybe with a theme. Everyone will be returning their round robins at next week’s meeting.  I wonder what mine will look like?
