    Is there an open round robin going on somewhere?

    Folks have recently been posting photos of a round robin they're engaged in, then with links to old round robins. I'd never heard of them before, but when I saw the results (both centers and finished quilt tops), I thought: oh THAT would be fun to participate in. I'd like to join (but not organize) a round robin!!! How do I find one?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the link to the Row Robin, but that one is not calling to me. I'm drawn to the Round Robin.

    I, too, would love to do a round robin. We really need only 4 or 5 to participate. Anyone else interested?

    Don't do to others what you do NOT want done to yourself

    Round robin, everyone makes a center square (or rectangle). Next person adds a 3 inch border all around, next person a 5inch then next a 6 inch, then a 7 then final 8 inch border all around. (sizes of borders can be altered as agreed upon) Be creative! expand on the center originals theme and colors! Dont just add a strip of fabric. here is one I had the pleasure of working on. you can see the center (she included the plain purple frame), the next persons border added the light green diamonds and pinky purple diamonds, almost like entwined ribbons, I did the next border by building upon the last border by expanding the lite purple and adding the Dark green lines shooting off the dk green units and adding the blue/green batik into the mix and used the "crowns" for my cornerstones. (I paper pieced.) The last border Julie built on what I had done. Using Angle play blocks she stayed with triangle theme and pulled off the darker purple from the previous to make the whole center just expand into a glorious huge work of art!
    It still has a couple of more rounds to go. But you should be able to see how each additional border builds on the last..
    This to me is an awesome example of a Round Robin.

    Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.

    Everyone also ends up with their original center back. Some have specific rules for each round, and some are just no rules except the plain fabric rule.

    I SO want to do one of these. Maybe it's just a matter of getting enough people interested? How many people do you need?

    You would only need 4 or 5 for one group. But, we do need someone to host (organize and followup with everyone to keep all on track).
