Stay At Home Round Robin

I didn't realize it had been so long since I posted.  This past week has really flown by.  I've visited my daughter and taken a road trip to a quilt shop I hadn't been to in several months, and I've done some sewing, too. 

 
I'm in a round robin with several gals that I see a couple of times a year at the Dear Jane retreat up in Shipshewana, Indiana.  I just finished my round on that quilt and passed it on to the next person on the list.  

I have also joined a stay at home round robin.  Sunny over at  Quilting Dreams blog is our hostess and has set up a page there with our guidelines.  She has also set up a Flickr page where we can post photos of our quilts.   


This is my center:



The round robin that I just worked on had a Dresden Plate center, and I loved it so much that I could hardly wait to work on my round.  So I chose a Dresden for my stay at home robin center, and I'm using the Bliss pieces that I have plus some other pieces from my stash.

Our centers are to be between 12" and 16".  The directions for our first border have been posted, and we are going to do a round with 3" triangles.  It can be either 3 rounds of triangles that are each an inch, or one row with 3" triangles or hourglass blocks.  We have a month to complete each round, and I'm really looking forward to being a part of this.

You can still join in because we've just started.  You can go over to Sunny's blog and join in the fun and check out our progress at the Flickr group. 

I hope you are all finding some time to stitch today.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

I love your dresden block - those fabrics pop on the white background. Look forward to following your round robin progress. Sounds like fun.

This kind of project sounds so fun, but I know myself well enough to be content to watch from the sidelines. I can't ever keep up! I will follow your project with great interest.
