Row by Row

This UFO/WIP is a couple of years old now. It is the result of a round robin project. Each person chose a theme or color palette and length and made a row for their quilt. I chose neutrals with a bit of maroon (I included the maroon). The row was sent to the next person and they made a row following the theme and then it was sent on, etc. In the end I had 13 rows to put together into a quilt. The quilters ages ranged from 12 to 60ish. Photos some of the others are on flickr.

I got mine put together fairly quickly but then it went in the closet awaiting quilting. I pulled it out a couple of weeks ago and got started on that. I did the quilting in the borders and sashing on my machine and I will be hand quilting the rows using maroon thread. I think it will end up very nicely sometime soon.

If you haven't done a round robin before, try it. Get a group of quilting friends together, set it up and have fun.

I am sure you will do wonderfully. It is exciting to have new people check out my blog. Up until I joined the doll quilt swap it was mostly family and a few friends. And now that we have a joint family blog only a few family members read this blog.
