Modern Row Robin Quilt Along

Modern Row Robin Quilt Along

Hooray Hooray! I can finally tell you a bit about the blog-land quilt along! It started with one simple concept: “Take something very traditional and put a modern spin on it.”? I think that is the concept behind many modern quilts/quilters. This concept was a Row Robin. Do you know what a Row Robin is? It is a quilt made in, usually, horizontal rows and each row is a different style or type. Many times ladies would pass the quilt along to the next person in the group and add a row. The quilt would continue to be passed around until it arrived back to the original owner- with all sorts of surprises- from fabric, to design, to technique. It is really a neat idea. Round Robin quilts are done this way, around a center medallion quilt. So using this idea as the jumping off point I thought- Let’s make sure the rows are modern and hip. Let’s have the quilter be able to customize the row or quilt size. Let’s do our own sewing, so we’re certain the pieces/colors will be pleasing at the end. Then I was stumped- How can I make a Row Robin look sampled and varied while still stitching the thing myself??? A-HA! I contacted 4 other modern sewing bloggers with the idea. Each blogger designed one row and wrote a tutorial for it. Very cool, right?? Each week, the 5 Row Robin bloggers will show you their own stitched row design and link you to the blog tutorial for that row. We want to keep each new row a surprise, just like a traditional Row Robin, so hold on to your hats! So once the idea was literally ironed out, we needed a fun funky name for our quilt-along. We opted to go with Rockin’ Robin, since this quilt will ROCK! The row sizes given will yield a 48″ x 60″ baby quilt. Of course, as with most modern, some-what improvised designs, you can easily make this quilt larger, simply by making the rows longer or making some rows twice. (That will affect your fabric requirements, you know.) Wanna meet the bloggers?? (These links will go to the row construction tutorials on each?...
