"Lorraine tell me the process of the Round Robin Quilt that you did with the Cohuna Quilter's group ?"
Round Robin wall hanging.
7people in a group.
We each supply a 6 inch by 6 inch centre,
then placed in brown paper bag with all names on.
Each month it was
passed to the next name on the list
we were given requirements for next round,
i.e. to include hand sewing;
bring in another colour;
squares or blocks.
You blacked out your name, down the list.
You could show to
other members but not the owner of the first block.
It finishes looking very together & lovely !
This picture is of your quilt design French Frolic
with that very tall girl, I added lots of lovely borders ...!
