Julia McLeod’s Lone Robin challenge is part mystery quilt, part round robin—except that you’ll be working solo. You’ll find a new prompt on this page every month, from February through July 2021. August is for catch-up, and September is the Big Reveal.
You can interpret the prompts in any way you like. Use any colors, any fabrics, any techniques, any scale. Use a pattern or work improvisationally. There’s just one rule: Whatever you make in one month must connect to your work from the month before.
Prompt #1 for February 2021
Create a starting block or section that features any kind of pointy motif. You could make star, a windmill, pinwheels, zigzags, thorns … they all fit this theme. Any pointy motif or pattern could be your starting point.
