Patchwork Round Robin Center Block 2010

Share the love!

I know everyone has been waiting anxiously all weekend for the reveal of the Patchwork Round Robin Center Block!! ha ha   Whatever, I know you were all watching the Super Bowl Game….or sewing while others were watching the game. I know how it is.

So I wanted the center to be something for everyone…..a bright, crazy fabric girl,  a dirty Kansas City Troubles girl,….a wooly girl…whatever else kind of girl you can think of.   Plus I was looking for something a little on the Springie side too.  Too much of this winter weather can wear the soul down. So what do you think of this is for the center block:

Edit–I added the stems:

Block Size: 16 1/2 X 16 1/2 inch square

Finished size: 16 X 16 inch square

Materials list:

1 fat quarter for you background —{Cut to size of block, AFTER you have placed and sewn everything down. Sometimes things shift you know.}

1 fat eight for you basket.

Various little scraps of greens, golds, reds  5″ squares are perfect for these!

Ric-rac:  for the bottom trim of the basket, and green for the stems.

White wool or wool felt for the small dot flowers


Let’s do a quick run-down of the instructions shall we?

1) Print off the picture—click on the picture of the templates–then print picture.

2) Cut out templates & pin on fabric choices.

3) Cut out pieces & Place on block background fabric

4) Pin, glue or use iron on fusable web to keep those pieces in their place.

5) Cut and tuck the ric-rac into place.

6) Zig-zag,  button hole or raw edge stitch the outside edges of the pieces.

I know what your thinking….that picture up there doesn’t have any stems.  Well,  I do know that!  However, I was finishing up this block yesterday and didn’t have the right green of ric-rac.

yes, this is where i looked and no, there wasn’t any green. Can you believe? I can’t either.

Next Patchwork Round Robin Date—– February 22nd—

Come back for the next two sides…..hint…they are how the basket is made. {not hard, easy pattern for beginners :)}

    This is the most fun web site for Quiters! Lotsa ideas! I have been quilting for a couple years now and really enjoy it. I know my husband wishes I didn't like it so much but he has his tractor etc!! I have made quilts for all my kids and their kids and now just quilting for enjoyment. I have downloaded the BOM “There's No Place Like Home Quilt” I plan on quilting until I use my stash and that will be a while! haha.
    Thanks for sharing your ideas etc. I have bookmarked your site and will visit often.
