Ann has an enthusiasm for novel ways to get quilters to work together, to make new friends and learn more about quilting...."to practice creativity and learn to work with varying colors and to see how each person completes the same assignment." This year she talked many in our guild into participating in a Round Robin. She formed several groups of about five each, people who live relatively close together.
At the end of the project, one is to come out with a quilt the owner initiated with a quilt block or medallion. This is to be added to or finished by the others in the group completing rounds of corners, squares and rectangles, triangles and finally, "anything goes." When a round is finished there is excitement, and while working on it, both great angst and some fun. I learned new techniques and solutions for which I am grateful, but like a hockey game, once is enough!
Monday night is Reveal Night. It will be fun to embrace one's quilt which has been worked on in secret. This handsome piece will go to Rosemary. My "anything goes" round are calming enlarged squares and rectangles.The subdued red corners and brighter reds mid-side I think worked well. After each round we add a border to make it easy for the next person to get started. OH NO! I just read that after receiving my own quilt I am to add one more round....OH!...or improve earlier borders, quilt the piece, and attach a sleeve to the back for unveiling to the membership. I can handle that. Hope Joe can :*)
