    Hope everyone is well. I have added a topic in pictures for us to post our rows and medallions.

    Although we are not sewing the rows together can you take a picture of all the rows when you get yours completed for the quilt you are working on. (that sounds odd, don't it? :)

    What I mean is I have sent my row off so when the next row is complete to go with it the picture should include both rows and when the third person works on it, then it should include all 3 rows.

    This doesn't seem to be such an issue with the medallion as they will be attached as they go around.

    I hope I haven't lost anyone.

    Here are my two, in their infancy.

    All my medallion partners ignore my glue fiasco on the hearts. I will fix when I get the quilt back next year :)

    are you talking about the pink/burgundy one? It is primarily a broderie perse....so a real simple way to put a medallion together.

    I was wondering about how you made the green and navy medallions. They look a little like OBW or kalidiscope.

    debe, I know what you mean about the stack and whack. I am not a perfectionist either so am afraid to try this block and of course I think it is the most beautiful block there is. Thanks for the info.

    tealfalcon, your medallion is beautiful, hard to believe it is your first paper piece. And the colors look so very rich.

    Tisha: Oh my God that is amazing...once you get use to paperpiecing you'll love it!!!!!!!!

    Everything I have read about round robins has the centre at 24" minimmum so go ahead and add some flying geese if you want....but I think it would be nice to be a couple of rows in from the medallion and something else around it.

    The fabrics are wonderful, no wonder you wanted them. Now what do I have in my stash that will match (:idea: hmmmmmmm)

    PS nice pattern. who's design? (not that i need another project) :-P

    Here's my center for the group in the medallion round robin. My theme is Christmas, and as you can see, it is rather large, the fabrics & pattern are Christmas themed, but the fabrics aren't. Since this is for me...yes, I'm being selfish...I plan to have this one on my king-sized bed. My only request is that each border is at least 1" wider than the one preceeding it. I can hardly wait to see all your talents shine forth as I know they will - quilters are the BEST!

    Not all the picture came through...I'll try again.

    Joyce: you did a great job; I think it is lovely and I can't wait to work on it...hope the first couple rounds of borders are too wide or it is going to be a challenge for me who is near the end to have an idea :)....lots of time to think though.

    I finally finished my row. I know I said, I would hope to have them done last week, but this tax season is kicking my butt! I work for a CPA (certified public accountant) and with new laws that just passed, clients are having a difficult time with their taxes. I've been going in early and staying late to get things caught back up.

    So here is my row. It was hard to see the blocks when I took a pic of the entire row, so I took pics of portions as well.

    Kelly - I love the row and the colors. This gets my mind a thinking about how I can add to it.

    Here is my row, I changed it up a little by adding sashing between blocks. I decided that I needed a bit of a rest between each blocks. I definitely like it better with the solid sash. I'll be including the solid blue for sashing if you chose to use sashing in your row. I was doing some calculating, 3 or 4 of you can feel free to do only a 6" wide row when working on mine. If they are all 12" it will be too long for what I want since I'll be adding a sash between the rows as well. Hope you like it.

    The colors in the first picture are most accurate. The other two look alot washed out.
