2021 Lone Robin

Hello, Lone Robins!


Welcome to a new year and a new Lone Robin Quilt Challenge!


This is a project you can undertake all on your lonesome - as most of us are, in these strange, pandemic times. Have fun sewing in your own creative space with no need to hand anything off to another quilter. This quilt will be all your own work.

The Lone Robin challenge is a bit like a mystery quilt. Each month Julia McLeod, the creator of Lone Robin, will issue instructions - the guidelines for what element to add to your quilt. If you do this challenge month by month, you won’t know what’s coming next, and you will be adding to whatever you made in the previous month. Some quilters may make each month’s element and add them together month by month.  Other quilters might wait until they know what all the elements are before making a quilt all in one go.  It’s up to you how you want to stretch yourself. Do what interests you and gets your creative juices flowing.

There will be 6 elements, announced February thru July 2021 in a monthly email, and on the EBHQ website. The element list is at the bottom of this page, along with some samples. August will be a catch-up month and September will be your chance to enter your quilt. Prizes and the final deadline TBA. We will be sharing our progress at the Meet-up Zoom meetings, or in the 2021 Lone Robin Gallery.  View the gallery of the 2020 Lone Robin completed quilt tops here.  


There is just one rule:

Each month’s work must connect with the last. Whatever you create in month two must - in some way - attach to what you made in month one. What you sew in month three must touch whatever you pieced in month two, etc. Sashing between the elements is permissible. Clear?


Keep sewing, Lone Robins!
