Row Round Robin

Tonight is the start of my Monday night quilt group's round robin. This year we're doing row quilts. It's the same round robin that Amy is in, but there are so many of us participating (12, I think), that we split into two groups. We swap every other month, so, the first group had their first swap in May. This way everyone gets to see some new progress every month. We do our round robins as surprises, so the owner (the person who did the first row) won't see it until the end. This means that I won't be able to post very many details about them for the next year or so. You'll have to wait until the very end!

Aaaaaanyway, I enjoyed the curved piecing so much, I decided to go with it some more. I managed to break the shaft part of my Curve Master foot, but that's okay. I also discovered that I don't actually need the adapter they give you. This design was similar to what I have had in mind for this row quilt all along; it's just executed a little differently. Here is my row. It's nearly width of fabric:

It's supposed to look like water. So people can add sky, fish, plants, whatever they want. Here's a closeup:
Goodbye, sweet little row! See you at the end of next summer!

  3. Hi, I found your blog through Crazy Mom Quilts. I love the fabric you used in this and you make the curves look so easy. My oldest is a student at U of R Law School .... she loves it down there and I doubt she will be returning to PA.

    Hugs,
