Round Robin

I belong to an online group called the Southern Cross Crazy Quilters. They have decided to run a Round Robin and invited people to join in the fun. I have never participated in a Round Robin before and decided to throw caution to the wind and give it a go.
Eight people have signed up and we have to make a 12' crazy block and decide on a theme. Every month the blocks get posted onto the next person to work on the block. The idea is that at the end of eight months you get a beautifully embroidered block back embroidered by all your online friends.
It is supposed to be fun and a way to get to know the others better as well.

You send off a little booklet with your block and each person writes a little note as well as explaining what they did and what threads they used as well.

Here is my block all ready to be posted on to the next lady. Won't it be exciting to see what it looks like when I receive it back?



My theme is Gardens.

Bye for now,
Linda

Can't wait to see what it looks like when you get it back. Love that you choose a "Garden" theme.

Cheers!

Hi Michelle,
It would have been great to catch up again. Oh well, next time!

Your initial blocks always look so neat! I have participated in many cross stitch round robins, and they are always fun, especially when you get your own project back home again.
I would love to go to the retreat in NSW, but as much as I keep planning to go to one, I never seem to get there, as 'life' always gets in the way (in the form of a sick husband).

Thanks Gina, do you still do cross stitch? I didn't know that cross stitchers did round robins. Sorry to hear that your husband is not well.
