We had the Reveal of the Round Robin Challenge quilts in February 2015. Here are the quilts, starting with Dianne McLendon's. Thanks to Dianne for organizing this challenge that really caused us to stretch and grow! Click on any image to enlarge.
Susie Jackson, 1st place
Ellen Cox, 2nd place
Debbie Davis, 3rd place
Finished after the deadline:
Gloria Green omitted the 8" Round 6; her quilt looks complete without it!
Below are the instructions and fabrics we were to use (adding any of our own).
We started a Mystery Round Robin Challenge in February 2014. What is unique about this Round Robin Challenge is that each participant will complete his or her own project, rather than passing it to another quilter for future rounds. Dianne McLendon planned the challenge and purchased fabric. The participants paid a fee and received fabrics for the first round.
There will be six rounds, with new fabric being given every other month (February, April, June, August, October, December) and a Round Robin Quilt Show at the February 18, 2015 meeting. Monetary prizes will be awarded by Viewers' Choice.
Round 1: Using the two fabrics given plus any others you choose, make a block 18-1/2" x 24-1/2" (including seam allowances).
Round 2: Add Round 2, using this fabric plus any others you choose. Unfinished size now should be 26-1/2" x 32-1/2" (including seam allowances).
Important Note: If you have trouble working with the 4" Round 2 border, you may make it 3" (plus seam allowance). We will make an adjustment in Round 3 so that we will all be back to the same size.
Round 1 Unfinished size 18-1/2" x 24-1/2"
Round 2 Unfinished size 4-1/2"
Round 3: Using this new fabric plus any others you choose, add another border. Instructions:
If you made a 3-1/2" unfinished Round 2, you will make a 4-1/2" unfinished Round 3.
If you made a 4-1/2" unfinished Round 2, you will make a 3-1/2" unfinished Round 3.
Round 4: Using this new fabric plus any others you choose, add another border.
Round 3 Unfinished size 3-1/2" OR 4-1/2"
Round 4 Unfinished size 3-1/2"
Round 5: Using this new fabric plus any others you choose, add another border. Unfinished size 6-1/2".
