    I Love seeing all your centers. You will have so much fun working on each other's quilts and will learn a ton. Can't wait to see the progress.

    The centers are lovely. Looking forward to see these quilts progress.

    I agree, this will be fun to watch as you all progress. I have often wanted to do such a round robin but I have been to shy because I fear my skills will not be up to par with others. I know my confidence problem.

    For those of you who have asked about my center: It is made by sewing two strips together and then cutting "wedges" with a 12 degree ruler placed on an angle across the strip set. You sew the wedges together like you would a Dresden Plate. Then you applique on a center. Adding the corner pieces was a bit tricky for me as I hate to sew curves - but I got it done.
    Check out Phillips Fiber Arts - it is a free pattern from them. http://phillipsfiberart.danemcoweb.c...gree-freebies/

    My first time too! I understand what you mean about wondering about my abilities and looking around at other quilts for ideas. I don't want to mess up anyone's hard work.

    For those of us who are new to the concept, can you explain exactly what a Round Robin is and how it works?

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Hi Linda - Sure it goes like this: Say you have 6 players, identified as A, B, C, D, E, and F.
    Each player makes a "center" and mails it to the next player in line: A mails to B, B mails to C, etc.
    B them adds a border or "round" to what was received from A
    B then mails the whole thing to C
    C adds a round and mails it to D
    And so on through the list to F, each player adding a round to the whole that was received.
    F then mails it for the last time back to its owner A as a completed quilt top.

    The size for each "round" is determined before the robin begins. So for the first round each player might add a 3" round to what they receive. The second round each player would add the next stated size - say a 5" round.

    The end size of each quilt is determined by the creator based on the size of the center initially sent

    Hope that helps.

    Ok Robinettes, this is the center I picked. It's called 1930's square from QuiltersCache.com. It's still a bit overcast here for pictures. But, hopefully this will do the job. It's 14 1/2" square.
