Find out what happens when I join a quilt guild Round Robin challenge:
Let’s do a Round Robin! It’ll be fun…wait, that was ME saying that!
Now here I sit with the dreaded pizza box–which, by the way, makes me hungry for pizza every time I see it–and I have a feeling of dread.
What’s inside and why did I think this would be a good idea?
I’ve participated in a Round Robin before. You know how it goes, everyone starts with a certain size block and each block has borders added by a different quilter and at the next guild meeting the blocks with borders get passed on to the next quilter until you get a completed wall hanging quilt top made with your original block. It was lots of fun in 2008! So what’s the difference? Why am I so afraid of ruining each of my four other friend’s quilts?
Well, let’s see what’s different here? Nine years ago there were only three of us in our group. I didn’t know the other ladies too well, so maybe there was some safety in that.
I was fairly new in the guild. There it is…I was a newbie! I had no fear! I didn’t realize what could go wrong- I didn’t know all the “rules” and I certainly didn’t concern myself with design knowledge. If I liked it, I did it. That was it. And even though I say I like to fight the establishment and throw the rules out the window, I do respect other people’s need for rules and order.
THAT’S what scares me! Can I do creative, yet disciplined work that will pass muster with these awesome quilters?
I guess that why they call it a challenge! Time will tell and you will know in about four months!
Stay tuned. In the meantime, I think I’ll call Dominoes.
