Round Robin Extraordinaire!

That's the only way I can describe the Round Robin quilts that I was lucky enough to see at the Clear Lake Quilt Guild. I promised I'd share more of the many different designs that the members made and here they are. Just a bit of background first, though. The project started with my friend, Sue, who found the idea on-line. It started with a 12 1/2" center square then directions were given for what must be used for the subsequent borders. Each participant received this little book of instructions and made notes in it as the quilt progressed. I just think this is a really neat idea. It would be fun to do this but I'm no longer in a guild. I guess I'll have to make one and do the Round Robin with myself!

To see a larger view of these pictures, just double click on the photo and it should enlarge. I had a front row seat at the meeting and took as many photos as I could. Not all turned out "in focus" so there are some I would have liked to share but my picture taking abilities keep me from doing that.






















































This Round Robin quilt top is the one that belongs to my friend, Sue. She started it with a colorful center and others in her group kept that theme going. It just says "cheerful", don't you think?


That's all, Folks, for the Round Robin photos. I also had a front row seat for their Show 'n Tell but again, my picture-taking skills were lacking. This one below turned out the best..........
It's a Country Threads pattern and it is a perfect quilt for this time of year. Tonight in Minnesota, there is going to be a lot of frost on those pumpkins out there. Freeze warnings are in effect across much of the state. Old Man Winter is trying to drop in too soon!!
Busy day ahead. Hope it's a good one for all of you!

Thanks for sharing, Sandi. I love Round robin quilts. My sister and I did some together a couple of years ago. Mine is still waiting to be quilted - but I love it!

Thanks for sharing these quilts, Sandi. (I think I recognize the liver-spotted hands holding the little red book :-)
Sue found a great set of instructions. Such fun.
