Hi Girls! Thanks for all the nice comments.
A Round Robin starts with everyone who is participating making a block, in whatever size you'd like. Mine was the darker, 6 inch pinwheel in the centre of the runner, but some in my group made 12 inch blocks, one lady had a beautiful floral fabric and cut a rectangle about 12 x 18 inches to start hers.
Then your block is passed around the group so everyone can take a turn adding a border - some do pieced work, some do plain colours - what ever the quilt needs at the stage you get your turn to work on it. While your block is growing, you are taking a turn on everyone else's block, helping those grow.
Everyone uses their own fabric to add on, following the colour story and theme, and occasionally it means a trip to the quilt shop for just the right touch!
It's a challenge to figure out measurements for the pieced borders, to keep things laying flat with all those people working on it, and to be creative in design and colour sense to make the quilt grow harmoniously with the work done before you get it. Great fun though, and we all stretch our skills to make each one beautiful!
