February – Frame It

How exciting — the first round of the 2020 RR begins, in the 10th anniversary year of the guild. Thanks for being a part of this project. So many feels.

The center blocks usually set the stage for the direction of the quilt, therefore decisions around how to add these first sections can really influence the next Robins. No pressure!

The assignment this month is to ‘frame’ the center block on all four sides: be that by sashing with posts or something else that you think will continue the vision initiated by the maker. Nothing wrong with some negative space either! The width of the borders is up to you.

For the first round, I find looking at medallion quilts to be inspiring:
