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.

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!
