October 17, 2011
I joined a round robin focus group with five other women in my guild at the beginning of 2010. It's a little frightening to work on someone else's quilt--especially when you don't know them well enough to know their color/fabric/design preferences. I am SO pleased with the quilt I received back and I think the other women were equally pleased. These were the rules of the challenge:
#1. Center block is to be 14 inches finished (remember that it will be put on point so consider this when choosing your center block design).
#2. Place center block on point and add a border 1 to 2 inches.
#3. This round is to be 3 to 4 inches wide and include squares or triangles.
#4. This round is to be 4 to 5 inches wide and be appliquéd. The appliqué may extend into the previous rounds if you so choose.
#5. This round is to be 3 to 4 inches wide and include squares or triangles.
#6. Your choice; let the quilt speak to you. The quilt should be a cohesive whole.

And the only one that I have seen finished is Caroline's (quilted by Janet Heins) and here it is with a ribbon on it from our quilt show!
