Join a Stay-at-Home Round Robin

If you have followed QuiltFabrication over the past year, you've probably discovered I love to participate in Round Robins. You know, that quilting activity which starts with a center made by the quilt's owner, then the quilt is passed to the next quilter for each round or border addition, and so on, until the top is done. 

Being stuck at home but not letting that get me down, Gail of Quilting Gail has started a Stay at Home Round Robin - I am sooo in!!

My last experience with a round robin produced two quilts made with the same rules - the Round Robin Rooster, made by my fellow guild members,

and Who Rules the Roost?, my own round robin.

Though I'm a bit late in sharing this activity, there's still time to join. Each Friday she'll give the theme for the next round, and host a linky party to share our progress. I've gotten my center done, using leftover blocks,

adding other leftovers and scraps to the center to make a focal point.

Then making sure I had enough scraps for the piano keys border idea,

with corners finished with a fun frog print because it coordinated nicely.

Not sure if frogs will become this quilt's theme, but I do envision the center as a pond with a spraying water feature. Am I stretching the imagination?

Now I need to figure the pinwheels - what size, how many, where, etc, etc. I'm challenging myself to stick with scraps, though there may come a time when yardage is needed. It's going to be interesting to see where this goes! 

I hope you join Gail and the rest of us for a fun project to keep you occupied while staying at home - the resulting quilt will certainly have quite the story to go with it!

Happy Quilting!
