Quilting Board International Round Robin

Rules:
1. First and foremost, do the best work you can. Others will be adding to your quilt and you want them to do their best for you.
2. Use good quality, 100% cotton fabrics
3. Prewash all your fabrics. Since we will all be adding fabric from different locales, we don’t know the shrinkage rate as compared to our own, so, whether you usually preshrink or not, please do so for this project.
4. Stay on target for mailing your work on to the next participant. If something happens in your life that impacts your ability to complete on time, contact both the person you are to mail to and the leader of the group.
5. Don’t be afraid to ask for help…If you are experiencing a mental block or a problem with your task, find help. Ask a friend, post a message, or any other way you want to get a little idea or input. If your not sure about a color match, ask for an opinion. This is supposed to be fun.
6. Use any technique that you feel competent in. ie.. machine or hand pieced, machine or hand appliqué, paper piecing, broderie perse, etc…
7. Remember, not all rounds must be complex to add to the overall look of the piece. Sometimes a plain border is what is called for.
8. Your round can be made of one or more borders as long as your finished border equals the called for measurement. Ex. If you are working on a nine inch border, it could be 7 inch pieced border surrounded by two 1 inch solid borders.

Guidelines:
1. Try to look at the work as it comes to you and determine what you can do within your abilities to add to the complete whole.
2. Try to match colors….don’t add something from your stash if it doesn’t look right in the quilt
3. Don’t try a new technique that you are not confident you can pull off. This is not the time to experiment. The complexity of the project comes from the addition of everyone’s abilities and techniques added together.
4. You may send fabric used to create your center block if you feel it will help the others to add to your quilt, but be considerate. The postage to send along your fabric from person to person will cost. Don’t send solids, marbles, etc. that can be purchased elsewhere. I am thinking of things like a floral or print that you used that might be local or no longer available to the others. Part of the charm of this project is the additions the others add that might be unique to their locale.
5. I will leave it up to you if you want to post interim pictures as well as if you want to look at them. Some might want to wait until the end to see their quilts. So I am suggesting that we all use the title of “International Round Robin Pics, xxxx round”.


All measurements are finished, so be sure to add your seam allowances to all.

One thing I forgot to add to the rules:

Include a 6 x 8 inch quilt label with your top formatted like this:

Round 1. your name, state/country, date, method
Round 2.
Round 3.
Round 4.
Round 5
Round 6


When you add a round to a quilt, dont forget to sign the label before you send it on.....

You can start any time you like, as long as you post by Nov 1. If you get yours done early, go ahead and mail it, that will give the next person a little head start on the next date. Does that make sense?

Okay that makes perfect sense and will stop me chomping at the bit. Will start washing my material tomorrow. This I have to confess I have never done before, but as they say there is a first time for everything.

Elle,

If you have trouble with pre washed fabric, you can spray it with sizing and press and put the body back into the fabric.
