This is the first time I've done something like this, so if it doesn't make sense, or I'm leaving out something very important, please don't hesitate to ask for changes or clarification. All comments and suggestions are welcomed.
Each person should start with a 12-16" center block of their choice. Later, we will have the option of setting it on point, so keep that in mind as you make your block. I plan to do some type of floral applique for my first block. Please have your block ready to go by the first of September, when I'll post the first "assignment'. I'll do another assignment on the first of each month, with the exception of December. We'll probably go 8-10 rounds to completion. I've got ideas from research I've done online, and from friends who recently completed a round robin in our guild.
Keep in mind, this is your own quilt. If you get behind, you can always catch up later. If you are really opposed to one border, skip it! I know I'll be stretching my skills, and brushing up on my math as we go along. If you need help, ask on the flickr site, and maybe another member will be able to help you out. I should state right here and now that I am not an expert quilt maker, and I will not have all the answers. But I'm hoping we'll make new friends, learn new skills, and all end up with beautiful quilts.
In addition to posting on my blog, I'll be copying the posts into a page (see tabs under my header) and adding the info each week so that it can all be found in one place. Maybe I'll even learn how to make my own 'button' before we're finished, that you can put on your own sidebar.
Counting my blessings......Sunny
