ROUND ROBIN 2015

A quilt made by fellow quilters.  

 This will be for the U.S. and Canada.  If we have players outside the U.S., we will set up a separate group so as to save on postage.

Due Date:  To be announced after we have at least 5-7 signups.  From there on, quilt tops will be due on the first of the month and you will have one month to complete your round. Hopefully, the tops will be finished within a year but do understand that things do happen that can delay it.

Guidelines:

1.  Each quilt top should start with a 12.5 square block.  It can be any style or color you would like.  It’s maker’s choice.  Please include scraps and a vision of what you see your top becoming.  You can include a journal for others to write in.   Please post photos as we go along.

2.  It is up to the person receiving the top to decide on an appropriate border to go around the center block.  Please make sure that it compliments the colors the maker has chosen and styles that will match.  There will be as many rounds as there are players so that everyone has a chance to create.

When sending the quilt top along, please make sure that it is insured and that there is tracking on the package, as we don’t want anything to happen to our creations.   Also make sure it is Flat rate shipping.   Please send on the first of each month.  When we have enough players, we will set the first month to send out.  Hopefully this will be in February.  Make sure that you post to the group your tracking number, your name and date sent.

If you find that you are having problems keeping up with the rounds, please let me know so that we can help you keep up.  If we do have problems, the date can be pushed back to help, but you have to let me know ASAP! Remember, we cannot help you unless you ask for help.

Please keep pets and smoking to a minimum as we do have members that have allergies.

Use only good quality cotton and your best sewing techniques.  Be creative and have fun with the quilt but make sure that it compliments the quilt.

You will be always sending to the same person until finished.  The list will be posted after the swap closes.

Please sign up below!   There is a database with your name, address, and email that will serve as a master list for all swaps.  That way we can find addresses quickly!  Just click on Files, go to Documents, click edit and add your information there.

Thank you for playing along!

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
