Round Robin 2011

I wrote this post earlier and then didn't publish.  I was in a round robin in 2011. Here are the photos of the round robin quilts for 2011 that I worked on in the order that I worked on them.  I know the ladies in this round robin through Dear Jane groups either locally or at the retreat up in Shipshewana.

We had until February 1 to make a center, gather our fabrics, and mail to the next person on the list.  As the year progressed and the rounds became larger, we had more time to work on the rounds.  Then we exchanged our quilts at the Dear Jane retreat at Shipshewana in November.

This one belongs to Nancy Z.  Her center is a likeness of the five of us that  worked on her quilt.  I'm the one dressed in green.  :-)


Next is Claire's quilt.  I really like the snail's trail blocks as an outside border.


This one belongs to Edith.  She used the Marie Webster fabrics. 

This one is Nancy K's.  I love the dresden center, so I put the smaller dresdens in my round.

This one is Vicki's.  She is known as the Cheddar Queen and loves cheddar and red together.


This one is mine.  I used mostly Moda's Fresh Flowers line with a few other fabrics from my stash mixed in. 


Here's a closer photo of my center block. 


I am sitting out for this year, but I have really enjoyed the last couple of years sewing with these talented ladies.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

I hope you are stitching today!

Those are some amazing quilts, LuAnn. I love the hexagon flowers in the center of yours. How do you have time to get so much done when you have these going on through the year? Some of those rounds are very labor intensive. Beautiful finishes!

They're all beautiful! Were all of the rounds free-form? I don't see any similarities, which is different than what Im used to seeing in a RR. They're all very unique!

Those are really amazing...hard to say which one I like the best...I WANT THEM ALL!!! I was thinking about doing a round robin with myself this year...start with a center block with absolutely no quilt plan and just see what happens...

In stitches,
