VMQG Round-Robin Quilt Swap 2015

Leave a comment


The Ventura Modern Quilt Guild hosted a ‘Round Robin’ earlier this year. In a round robin, several people create a center “medallion” block. Each block is passed to the next person on the list. They must add a “border” and pass it on to the next person, to add another border, until everyone has added something to the quilt. I was familiar with how a round robin worked, but I had never participated one. It was actually a lot of fun. Many people joined and we were assigned groups of four, with each person adding a border. At VMQGs recent meeting, we had the final “reveal” (no one could see their quilt until it was finished.) Everyone brought a different creative touch to each of their rows and all the quilts were incredible. I could not be more pleased with the results of my quilt that the other quilters made. I love that there was plenty of negative space in the rows of my quilt. Now, my creative process begins to decide how I want to quilt my top.
