R1, R2 & R3: Annette

Annette talked about joining up before, but didn't have a chance to work on her blocks until now. So here they are all at once - and aren't they great?

R3: Sarah

Sarah has now completed her third round - and lovely it is! My apologies to Sarah for listing her as having no blog - she does have one, and it's here.

R1 & R2: Cheryll

A new player has joined us - Cheryll, who blogs here - she has done round 1 & 2, but not 3 yet, I think (at any rate, I didn't see it on her blog). It's such fun seeing the different directions everyone is taking!

R3: Toni

Here's Toni's block after round 3 - she has blogged about it a little here. As she says, it's a very simple addition this month - which is fine, as there will be months later where what you are asked to do will be applique or embellish, and you may need some not very busy space to work with. Toni took part in the travelling round robin I did (the one which inspired this stay-at-home robin) so she knows better than many folks what type of thing to expect - though I have altered it somewhat to fit in the 12 month scheme...

R3: Amo

Look at that lovely velvet texture!

R3: Narelle

I like how Narelle's two projects are similar, but different.

Round 3: Virtual Robin

Finally got my big laptop back from the laptop doctor (the little one doesn't have EQ installed, as it has no disk drive) , so I can show the progress on the virtual robin, including the spacing, relative to the entire finished quilt size...

R3: Julie

Here's Julie's next round - great colours in this one - can't wait to see where it goes!

R3: Benta

Here's Benta's round 3 - love that flange in the top piece... She has blogged about it over here.

Its own blog...

Decided that the Stay at Home Robin really needed its own blog, as it was getting hard to follow over on mine. So from now on, updates to the project will appear over here, rather than on my own blog - though of course I will show my own blocks over there - and no doubt remind people from time to time that everything has moved here.

And just to confuse things, I'm going to add all the work we've done to date - but backdate it so it appears in the month people did the work - I think that over time, I'd rather have it that way, even if it seems strange for the moment!

R3: Lisa

Lisa has finished her round 3 blocks - and has blogged about them as well.

Something she said to me in an email reminded me to remind all of you that if you are a little unsure about a single block in your piece, remember that there is still a lot more to come, and compared to the overall size of the piece (which won't be huge, I know) what we have made so far is actually quite a small section. So for instance, an addition which seems a little busy or a little bright, won't appear nearly so dominant once we add three or four more rounds as it might at the moment, if it's your round three piece.

R1 & R2 & R3: Christina

Christina has decided to join us, and has made these two separate sets of blocks.

R2: Gene

R3: Janet

Janet has blogged about her third round over here.

R1 & R2: Cherie

Cherie has decided to join us, and has blogged about her first two blocks here.

Round Three!

Here's what you all may have been waiting for (or not!) - step 3. This month's instruction is to add a strip, 10x3" (finished size) to the top of the two previous blocks. Alternatively, you could add it to the bottom. I can't show a photo of my virtual quilt because my big laptop is off being repaired (again, grrr.) and although I have the actual EQ file on a flash drive, my little laptop doesn't have EQ installed on it, so I can't get at it to take the snapshots (no CD drive on the little laptop - it's a netbook). So instead, I've just done my actual quilt a little earlier. I'm going to change the squished, wonky green circle - partly, it needs another colour in that spot, and partly, it's squished and wonky, but essentially, here's what I'm doing. Ta da!
