The Lone Robin

Julia McLeod of Silk & Salvage has invented a new quilting game she calls the Lone Robin! It’s part progressive quilt, part mystery quilt, and will be a whole lot of fun when we compare quilts at the end of it! 

Starting in June, we’ll do this for six months and you can register at any time. Each month we’ll complete a stage of our quilt using that month's element.  For those of you with traditional tastes, this will likely mean you make a medallion quilt, building the quilt by adding a new round each month. For the rule-bending modern/art quilters you can choose to add any kind of compositional element—one strip, one chunk—that follows that month’s brief. 

We’ll all be following the same basic recipe because we’ll all add the same components in the same sequence, but there are no rules about color choices or dimensions. You can choose how much detail you want to put into this quilt. A plain border with one single motif-of-the-month still qualifies! 

Instructions will be released June through November to registered participates by direct emails linking you to this Lone Robin web page.  December is a catch up month. We will reveal our finished tops in a Zoom Meet-up meeting on January 14th. As added incentive, every quilter who shows their finished quilt top in January will be entered in a raffle, which offers a chance to win one of four $25 gift certificates from one of our Member Affiliates.  You can register now and be part of the Lone Robins

  • EBHQ members can check out the forum discussion and can add photos of your work to the Lone Robin Gallery      
  • Julia is running the Lone Robin for the SF Quilters’ Guild, but as she is a member of both guilds, she is allowing Claire Sherman to run it for EBHQ. All questions should be directed to Claire Sherman at Workshops.
