Some fantastic Round Robin quilts there.
I used to be tempted by the idea of a Round Robin, but as others have said, it is so dependent on everyone doing their bit, if one person fails everything falls apart. Probable a nice thing to do between a small group that knows each other well though.

I've done a couple of row swaps, both in small groups of friends. One involved buying the fabric and sending it off so the postage costs were higher. Another was just sending the rows according to specified colour scheme. Both were assembled by the originator, so only one is finished!
I also did the PP Stay at Home Round Robin a few years ago, just following the instructions each month. I actually got as far as the second last lot of instructions so that's another UFO, as is the PP Sew a Row....
Swaps are great fun but they can be ultra-stressful too, especially when things get lost in the post. Over the years, I have had a few things to me go missing and 2 items I sent never arrived either, although replacements arrived promptly enough.

Thanks for sharing your quilt Juliet, it's nice to hear you are home & starting to feel a bit better xxx I love the appliqué on your quilt & all those little squares that make up the border. They just look so tiny & fiddly!
That's s really well travelled quilt Tessa, it looks really big & lovely autumnal colours
I hadn't even thought of stuff getting lost in the post Fiona. It's quite a scary thought!
