Yours Truely Round Robin

Project Description

What are you most proud of? That each of the rounde actually look like they all fit together. I was worried with the randomness of the process (I am sure it was not so random for Carol Doak) and the limits of having to use what you have for materials had me making choices I wouldn't have normally made. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun and let go of any preconcieved designs... just let it happen when it happens. It really showed me that I could look at things a little differently... (ok I admit... I am a control freak when it comes to planning my quilts... and this one started without the plan and turned out okay!)

What you will need

  • I chose materials that I had hunks of at home... I did need to fill in alittle with new fabrics once the project progressed.

Bonnie Wilson asked:
This is awesome! I so admire people who can do such intricate work! I'm excited when my pinwheel points and half square units match up! Congratulations for working outside the box!
Sew pieceful answered:
Thanks! Like I said above... Paper piecing with Carol Doak's method produces wonderful points and precise piecing.
Edie H. asked:
WOW! And I thought BOM was inspirational... When I grow up I want to be able to do those compass points! Very nice detail =)
Sew pieceful answered:
Compass points are....easy with Carol Doak's paper piecing! I love it because I am very busy and I sew for stress reduction. It is easy to start and stop and still know exactly where you are at!
funky block asked:
how do I find the pattern?
Sew pieceful answered:
There really wasn't instruction. Just rules as I typed in the instruction section above. I can go back through my Carol Doak's patterns and list the foundations I used. I am out of the country for a few days. I will look them up this weekend when I get back home.
