To Rule Or Not

I was rather upset when I received this block.  It's thrice the area a round robin block in the group it's in is supposed to be.  On top of that, the owner asked for a lot of encrusting and extra embellishment.  For a smaller than usual block, that's great.  For a monsterly huge block like this, that's pretty ridiculous.  On top of that, this block is so far out of my comfort zone taste-wise that I was flummoxed as to what to put on it.  My first thought was a My Little Pony.  Instead, I embellished the unicorn and added flowery stuff around it.  I hope the owner likes this block, but I'm thinking I'm going to withdraw from any other round robin theme she signs up to that I am already part of.  Is this fair of me?

Hi Meg,

The first question I would ask is does she understand the rules? Is she doing this because she doesn't know what the rules are or is she doing this because she doesn't want to follow the rules.

I would check in with the moderator of the Round Robin and let them know what is going on.

You did a nice job on the Unicorn!

Hi Cyn-

Well, she's a long time member of the group, and her blocks have been getting progressively bigger with each round robin. I did do the notification, and the list owner is doing a bit of scolding, I think. I'm not sure. I truly believe she just thinks the rules do not apply to her.
