This year we have been “Taking the Round Robin into the 21st Century” as a challenge at our work. In February each staff member had to bring a 6 inch starter block in a designated colour from the colour wheel. This week we took possession of ‘our’ block and now we have to feature Aurifil threads on it to make it into a mini quilt with quilting and/or embellishments.
Back in February, I had to work with the colour Violet and make a 6 inch block.
Then every two months we were to add borders of different sizes to each relevant quilt block. Round two of mine was made by Judy using a red-orange colour to create an asymmetrical border on four sides.
Then Yellow was choice of colour for Jenny, with an even size border on four sides ( no more than 3 inch wide) added.
Finally, a border on two sides, no more than 3 inches wide was added by Denise in Blue Green
Here are all the quilts (hung over some of the batting in the shop) showing the results. It will be fascinating to see what everyone chooses to do with their individual quilts.
And a closer look of them (Jenny and Judy’s):
and the other two (mine and Denise’s):
We have been given some time to finish the quilts as they will be displayed at the Melbourne Wholesale Quilt Market in November – and if we are really keen and finish them before hand, someone may even blog about them earlier!!
