    Your block is beautiful. I love the fabrics. Florals are my favorites. Everything matched up so well. You did an awesome job.

    Very good job. How many more blocks are you making? Will they be the same or different?

    What's a row robin? I've heard of a round robin, but not a row robin.

    I'm with you, I'm not even sure how a round robin works. My sisters have tried to explain it to me but it's not something I've been able to wrap my head around yet.

    It's where the participants each make an entire row of blocks, then all the rows submitted by all the participants will be sewn together to make the top. There is a time limit to complete each row before it is passed onto the next participant until all have made the specified number of rows.

    Whoever organizes it determines the size of the blocks that make up the rows, which of course sets the row size, as well as stating the colors, theme-if so desired, and any other requirements for the project.

    Okay, so who ends up with the top in the end? And how do you know if you're going to like what the next person does?

    each person participating ends up with a top. i don't care what mine ends up looking like, it's more the thought that someone would want to help me create a quilt.

    Ohhhh so if 10 people are making "a" row you do 10 of your rows, one for each quilt. Right?

    Yes, you could certainly do it that way. That's basically the purpose of a "robin" so everyone helps everyone out. It's somewhat of a take on a mystery quilt, you don't know until it's all put together what it looks like, beyond the basic instructions, so if you're really flexible this is a great way to get a wonderful project made with many hands.

    There are varying ways of organizing it. I just googled and read different ways it can be done.

    I was so excited about this I've already got my row finished too. Since I love blue and yellow (gold) I really like this block.

    Actually each person does 1 row and sends it to the next person, that person does a row to match , then sends it on, When it comes back to you have 12 rows complete ,each one done by someone else
