Round Robin 2013 Schedule and Designers- Winter Wonderland

It’s time everyone!! Time for Round Robin 2013– Winter Wonderland!

round robin quilt finished

This year the Round Robin is going to be the best yet! I have rounded up a few past designers, plus some new…super duper talented ones!   Everyone has designed in their own taste and talent a row for us to sew.  We are responsible for picking fabric, sewing the rows with our own machine {no swapping or trading with this round robin}, and keeping up with everyone else! lol

This is technically the 5th Round Robin that I have hosted here on the blog. They have each turned out —wonderful! I have loved each one.  Because the rows are designed by someone new, there is a great variety of technique, challenge, and ideas or patterns.  I personally know what I have designed and only a handful of the others….so it is sort of a Mystery….even to me!  {i do like a good surprise though and I am totally excited to see what they will come up with}  I look forward to this quilt along every year, hope you do too!

Theme: 

Winter Wonderland — each designer will be interpreting this theme in their pattern for the row they are designing.

Sponsors for the Round Robin–

quiltmyphone    BWVintageFloralNeoprene

Welcome Quilt My Phone!! They are giving a 10″ neoprene zippered case that can hold an iPad or any other 10″ tablet, a Kindle or e-reader plus adapter cord, OR can be used to hold piecework for travel. The image on the case is from a vintage whole-cloth quilt from the 1880s. The case retails for $25.95.

Designers and Post Dates :

You will find all the links to posts and patterns here on the main page- kind of a quick list {updated as they are posted}

Click on the Images to go to the page with the pattern or download the whole pattern:

Schedule:

Rows will be posted on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month. Posts will be here on this blog- not on the designers blog {you are welcome to visit them though, as their links will be included in the post} First row will be up January 28th, with the last row July 9th.

At the very end I will share an additional post to help you figure out how to sew this row quilt together!  The rows will be for the most part the same width, though they can vary in height.  I will also give you some hints on adding sashing between the rows, maybe a border or too– and more.  You will not be left hanging with a pile of rows…. you will get this finished!

Along with the posts here, you will find a little interview of the designer on spotlight.  Including a few of their photos, designs and links so you can find out who they are and what they are all about.  I love getting to know someone new…don’t you?!

Connect:

Photo Gallery~

So we can all keep track of what we have sewn, there is a Flickr Photo Gallery set up for the Round Robin.  This is a great place to post photos of your progress– from fabric choice to final finish.  We want to see it all!  {this truly is the only way we can share since we don’t live by each other- think of it as our spot for show and tell}  I check it often and comment, so please share!

Spread the Word:

I would love for you to share the Round Robin Winter Wonderland with everyone!  Take a moment and post it to twitter, facebook like it….. pin it.  Whatever your social media specialty is.  The more the merrier!  I am setting up some sponsors, so a giveaway at the end will of course be included!

    this one is a row quilt– a different designer comes up with the pattern that you sew with your own fabric. Fun to sew up what someone else designs…kind of a surprise too!

    Hi..I am planning on joining in the fun. I noticed that the first row was to be posted on the 27th which was yesterday, but in your instructions, you said they will be posted on the 2nd and 4th Monday. Since nothing was posted yesterday (the 27th) will you be posting the first row today (the 4th Monday)? Can’t wait to get started!

    OK, I think I’ll do this one!!! I tried to grab a button, but it didn’t seem to want to cooperate. Anyone else have trouble or have advice? Fun!!

    This looks fun and interesting. I would like to participate and am wondering how much fabric is required to complete the project? I have looked but don’t see the recommended amount. Please let me know so I am not behind- limited local resources, I rely on online fabric sources.
    Thanks- Michelle

    michelle- because this isn’t a pattern that is finished already {each designer coming up with their own pattern and supplies} there isn’t a materials list. I am using though 2 1/2 yards of background + a fat quarter pack that i had. Hope that helps. These are great to use scraps with….just keep adding fabric and it fits right in. 🙂

    I was wondering if this quilt is going to be really long and narrow or are some of the next additions going to go onto the sides? I am really liking the quiltalong and nearly ready to post a picture of the row of trees. Thanks.

    I just discovered your Winter Wonderland Round Robin and absolutely love it. How long will you leave the directions up? Around here, printed pages tend to meet an early demise unless I print them as I need them, LOL.

    Thanks for a great pattern
