    I'd like to do a Black/White Round Robin or Row Robin in 2009. Any other ideas for the coming year?

    Maybe a theme? Where each person's quilt starts with a theme? I guess they sort of do anyway.

    Gee we're having so much fun with our little Studly story, perhaps each quilt should start with the beginning of a story, and as each person adds a bit of the tale as they add to the quilt?

    How about red/white and black.
    That is one of the main projects on my list for 2009. Next to the URR.

    I also like the red/white/black idea. It's on my "someday to do" list.

    I think mama is gonna start us on a chicken quilt in spring 09..at least I am counting on that!

    I'd have to think about the black/white/red RR..I'm already in 2 and I'm not sure what I'd do with it when I finished it. Oh, who am I kidding...I'd figure out something :roll: :lol:

    I like the black/white/red and I'd like a "Christmas" or Holiday themed one...we could buy all the fabrics in January on the Super Clearance! :D

    I vote for a Row Robin, Christmas theme...but I can't chair. I'm too ill right now to take that responsibility, as I don't know when/if I will be hospitalized, etc.

    I like the Row thought because it just seems simpler...the original owner can add the borders to showcase the prints, colors, and make the quilt whatever size (s)he wants. Say 72" long by 12" (12 1/2" unfinished) and to 6 people (including the original). That will make the quilt 72 x 72.

    Yes???
    :D :D :D :D

    I can chair. How about...

    Christmas Row Robin
    International opt.
    Sign up now through Jan.
    First row due out at the end of Jan.
    One Row per month
    6 people per group, all the tops should be done at the end of July with plenty of time left to quilt them up before next Christmas?

    If others like it, I'll start a thread for it.

    I'm in...

    How about listing theme...
    for example
    kids-red/green
    pets-blue/white
    assorted
    elegant-red/green
    snowflake-blue/white/silver

    or is this getting too complicated and everyone goes for assorted?
    I'm just trying to figure out how to buy the fabric in the least expensive way...

    How about we all declare our theme-desires (keeping with Christmas) by the sign up date - how about December 24, 2008?

    I'll have a list of who and what is going on with your other group members out by the 26th of December, so everyone can shop as soon as they want?

    And don't forget there is nothing wrong with fabrics that aren't Christmas, being used in a Christmas quilt.

    I'd like to try a Row Robin! And a Christmas theme sounds good too. I'd be willing to exchange internationally too. :D

    I moved the Row Christmas Robin to it's own post, switching it from an idea to a plan. You can see it here http://www.quiltingboard.com/posts/list/13162.page It's really what we talked about already. Anyone interested PM me.

    We make a row a month of a xmas design and send it on. Do we sew them or just keep them in a set. Everyone in this six makes just the christmas...I'm a bit confused. but I might be able to do this one

    I would very much like to do a row robin, clever title zyxquilts!, but am not interested in doing Christmas themes. Would anyone else like to do a row robin mini quilt with me?

    Ideas:
    Cool colors (purple, green, teal, bluee, etc)
    Triangle, use of triangles in country colors
