Juliann at Chasing Stories shared the Stay at Home Round Robin linkup earlier this week. It sounded like fun, but to be honest – I’m not even sure what a Round Robin is! I liked the basic idea: make a center quilt block and then follow the subsequent directions to be released each Monday. Of course – there’s a ton of leeway and you can do whatever you want with your own quilt, but it’s intriguing to follow the general directions given by another group of quilters!
I decided to make a 6″ Winter Star Block from Lori Holt’s Farm Girl Vintage. I love the yellow points! Once it was finished though… it seemed so small and unsatisfying. So I tried something else:
There! That’s better. It’s the 12″ version and I love how the pastels play together. I started with only a fat quarter of that background fabric though, so I’m going to have get creative as I go along!
Since I have two center blocks, I’ll consider working on two round robins at the same time. But if one of the versions speak to me more then I’ll gladly abandon the other!
