ROUND ROBIN AND CHALLENGE 2018 “A PLACE CALLED HOME”
- This year (2018) the Waterford Quilters Guild is combining the Round Robin and the Challenge into one project called A Place Called Home. We encourage group participation, however, if you prefer to work on your own project please feel free to do so. Even if you are going to work on your own, please still add your name to the signup sheet with a notation that you will be working on your own so we won’t place your name on a team.
- As in the past, there is a $1.00 fee to participate. This money will be used for awards.
- Signup is open through the January 2018 Guild meeting.
- If you are working on your own, you may begin anytime.
- The teams (four members to a team) will be assigned and announced at the February Guild meeting. You will pass your completed owner’s row to the next Guild member on your team in March. All of the completed rows will be returned to the owner at the June Guild meeting.
- The owner can then complete the quilt as she wishes. The quilt can be embellished with borders, sashing, beads, crystals, threads, etc.
- A row can be any height, no shorter than 24”, and no longer than 42”.
- The challenge quilts will be judged by viewer’s choice at the November 2018 Guild meeting.
- Any questions or concerns please contact Brenda Ashley (email@example.com or 240-490-7242) or Ceil Karvellas (firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-777-5588).
Brief Description of a Round Robin
A quilt that is made by a group of quilters. To begin, everyone makes a center block/row, then it is passed to the next quilter for the subsequent addition. After the second piece is completed it is passed to the next quilter until each quilter on your team has added her row. Finally, it is returned to the original owner. The 2018 Round Robin will be made in rows.
ENJOY! This can be a creative, stretching, learning experience.
The owner will not see her quilt top until July after all five rows are completed.
When you sign up to participate you are committed to meeting the deadlines and finishing the project. Your team is depending on you!
Work on another quilter’s project as you want her to work on yours. Measure, measure, measure! Make sure your measurements are accurate. Make sure your addition and finished rows are square. If you don’t know how to do something, ASK! There are lots of help videos, and other Guild members with a wealth of information and experience.
