A Crazy Quilt Round Robin Ends

It was a delightful experience to get all of my round robin blocks back from the tone on tone crazy quilt. I had a wonderful array of talented stitchers to work on these.
Thanks to Diane, Cathy, Ritva, Rita, and Candji for creating such beautiful memories for me.

Gerry Krueger of astutely says that one of the best things that crazy quilters can do to learn and become better crazy quilters is to do a round robin and I happen to agree. I want to produce my very best work that is going into someone elses hands, and while I am working to make that happen, I am also seeing the best work of others and getting inspired.

Round robins also ensure that you keep a regular stitching schedule to meet the deadlines of sending out a block. The more you crazy quilt, the better you will get.
And if you follow blogs like you will get a lot of ideas on how to improve the design look and feel of what you are doing.

My local crazy quilt group will be doing it's first round robin here. We are starting out with a 10" fan block and will do the seam treatments and then embellish.
I hope everyone will get addicted!

  1. Cheryl, this is absolutely stunning! I love the colors. So soft!

    I hope you'll post the photos of your Fan Block RR. I've never done a fan block but it's been in the back of my mind for awhile.

    Hugs, Pam
