SAHRR 2024 – Round One

by | Jan 22, 2024 | 13 comments

Welcome to the first of six rounds of the Stay at Home Round Robin – 2024! This round is prompted by Wendy of Pieceful Thoughts of My Quilting Life, and is the signature block. This is one of my favorite blocks. Here are my blocks for this round. These measure four inches each.

And here they are added to my center block!

Now it’s time for you to make your signature blocks and link up with Wendy at Pieceful Thoughts of My Quilting Life, as she is hosting this round!! Remember you interpret each prompt and it’s placement as YOU see fit! There are no quilting/designing police in this SAHRR!! Some of my blocks will be four inches and some will be other sizes. It’s all up to you! Make one block or make a row, or even a border!

If you don’t have a blog you can send a photo to me via email and I will post it on my blog as well as on the linkup at Wendy’s. You can link up with an Instagram photo also!! Use this form and I will email you for your photo.

Visit each of the co-hosts and take a look at their interpretations of this round.

We will make a list and use a random number generator to choose the winners for each prize! So, if you link up to 3 Linky parties, you will have 3 opportunities to win! If you don’t have a blog or Instagram account, contact me, or one of the other co-hosts and we will post your SAHRR on our blog. This way you still have an opportunity to win!

    I’ll be learningsomething from each quilter every round. This is wonderful. Your robin on a spool is so cute.

  2. Janine @ Rainbow Hare

    This looks great. I love the fabrics you are using ???? Sorry I mistook your contact form for a comment box!

  3. Helen Bowie

    Love your block…will you be making a pattern for your block in the future?

    Hi Brenda! Ooh, those are cute little signature blocks. What size is your center block? Don’t they kind of look like a worm for your sweet birdie? I can’t wait to see what comes next. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. quiltinggail

    I love how you added the signature blocks to just the top and bottom of your block! I can tell you’re aiming for a rectangle quilt! 🙂

  6. Karrin Hurd

    Your piece is looking beautiful!

  7. Bernie

    Very nice Brenda! I noticed you added coping strips on both sides to balance things out for the signature blocks. Looks great!

  8. Connie Kresin Campbell

    The border looks great with your center design Brenda! I’m a little late but think this might be fun to do. So for the center block it can be any block I choose?

  9. Kathleen McCormick

    I love the way you did your blocks. Fabulous fabric choices too!

  10. Sara F

    Ooh – I like how you reversed the light/dark in the signature blocks. Very clever!

  11. piecefulwendy

    Oh! I love how this looks with your little robin! Nice!

  12. texasquiltgal

    It’s so fun to see the different “takes” on the signature block – I love yours!
