Round Robin Group
Brook Moss & Sally Siggard, co-chairs

The exchange will begin on April 12th (Guild Meeting)
Center Block: Between 10" and 12" finished size, 
(10 1/2" to 12 1/2" unfinished).
Use an orphan block from your stash or make a new one.
Enclose the block in a Zip-lock bag with your name and phone number, 
and any instructions.  
You may provide specific fabrics or color requests.
You may also want to include a square of fabric for a label
to have those in your group sign their name as they add a border.

There will be THREE ROUNDS.
May 3, June 7, and August 2nd.
The final reveal will be September 6th.
For each round, it will be your opportunity 
to add a border up to 6" to match or enhance the center square.
Each round will be returned to exchange at the following guild meeting.
If you cannot attend guild, deliver your round robin to Sally or Brooke
prior to the meeting.

Use your imagination!  Use the design, color or theme elements 
inspired by the center block.  Use any technique you desire, including
applique' or piecing.  If necessary for pieced borders, add a small border strip
to bring the block to the correct size needed.
Calculate by using the finished size measurements.
