2020 Lone Robin

A typical round robin quilt challenge is full of surprises. After the originator creates the center block, it is passed from quilter to quilter, each one adding a new "surprise" to the quilt top until the originator receives the ultimate surprise—a finished quilt top.

In 2020 Julia McLeod developed a Lone Robin challenge, where a quilter works alone, and each month gets a new design element to incorporate into their quilt top. After creating a center block using the first element, the quilter adds elements month by month to create a quilt top. Never knowing what element lies ahead provides a Lone Robin with continuous surprises and challenges to integrate each element into their design.

The 2020 Lone Robin design elements are listed below in order of release. Quilt tops could be constructed in Traditional Medallion style adding each new element to all sides, or Improvisational style, adding the new element anywhere, as long as it touched the previous element.
