Post image for Improvi-Robin Season 2 signups open!

Last year’s Improvi-Robin group quilting adventure was so much fun, I’m eager to start again! And with our Season 1 trial-run a success, the Improvi-Robin is now open to everyone.

Will you come play with us?

Sign up for SEASON 2 through January 14th

CLICK HERE for details.

We’ll be forming circles of 5-7 people, with one month to complete each round. That means we’ll be piecing and swapping until mid-summer, then you’ll have the rest of the year to add to and finish the top you get back from your round robin partners. Details and guidelines are here, and you can see Season 1 pictures in the flickr group here.

I’m delighted to show off my completed Season 1 IR wall-hanging as my first finish of 2013! Thanks to Abby, Jackie, Miki, and Willa for your contributions!

Improvi-Robin wallhanging

The large blue rose print on the back is by Valorie Wells. I’ve had it in the “backing fabrics” stash for a while, and am so happy to have found such a good use for it here. The hanging sleeve used up the last of my Brandon Mably “Waves” also used for the front inner border and binding.

Improvi-Robin #1 back

Between a lot of improv piecing and my varied quilting density, this isn’t the flattest final product to come out of the studio. I’m about to put it through the wash, which will either even it out or make it worse… whatever happens, I’ll enjoy having this in my home for a long while to come.

Remember, Season 2 signups are open through January 14th, so click here for details. I look forward to playing with you!

I luv your quilt! I luv this blog!
The improvi- Robin looks amazing and I followed your progress last round! All the quilts were fabulous! I would luv to join but I just sent out my block for another robin which is more structured cuz I came upon it accidentally and the moment was right! I belong to a few bees as well so this would really be stretching myself too thin and I do not want to disappoint, be late or not do my best work because of rushing! I cannot this time but I will definitely be keeping my eyes peeled for the next round! I will be following your progress for sure!
ps your scrappy quilt is also gorgeous and I love the advice you gave on how to organize(somewhat) the fabrics!
