    2013-2014 Round Robin

    Six of us here on the board...DragonflyNana, Elisabrat, Lestrong601, Nexxus831, TheMamaHouser, and Jaba have agreed to do a round robin. This thread will be where we post pictures of our progress for everyone to see. We should be done around July 2014 and we will post our finished quilts too.

    I look forward to working with these funny and talented ladies-several of whom are already mailing their centers out for the first round!


    I will start with mine - I can't wait to see what this group does with it. I hope everyone enjoys our posts as we embark on this quilty journey.

    This is the "Storm at Sea" pattern. I used the resources (foundations and color-planning worksheets) at http://www.generations-quilt-pattern...sea-quilt.html

    The center currently measures 21 3/8" square.

    I am hoping to have an entirely red & white quilt when we're finished.

    So far they are all beautiful! I love the movement in the storm at sea! Jaba, those are my fav colors. The dragon flies remind me when our son and we were catching them a couple of years ago at a local park. Lestrong, nice strong but soft block. The butterflies make it soft and the diamonds remind me of strength!
    Go forth and sew!

    All are so pretty. I am partial to florals and pink so really like that one. Red/white is on my list to do so I really like that one, and I like birds and blue so really like that one. Shoot, they are all so pretty. Can't wait to see the rounds and maybe get some new ideas.

    We are off to a rousing start. Such lovely centers - these are going to be a treat to work on.

    I can hardly wait to see what Elisabrat and Nexxus831 are going to create.

    This will be a very entertaining thread to follow; the starts are wonderful so far. I saw several I'd love to work on if I were participating. It will be such fun to see these each round for the next year! I hope you will make the subject slap-your-face-obvious so we can ALL find it each time!!

    The only round-robin I really knew of was in tennis! I think I will learn lots of new things following your thread throughout the round-robin. Can't wait to see as all progress... exciting for a somewhat new quilter...

    It's in my head, no specific block just made it up. Kind of like flying by the seat of your pants....and I seem to do that occasionally.

    It looked more like a pineapple block around a 4 patch to me.
