Stay at Home Round Robin

by | Jan 10, 2022 | 8 comments

Happy Monday everyone! I have decided to participate in this year’s Stay at Home Round Robin (SAHRR) that is hosted by Gail of QuiltingGail. There are six people who will be adding rounds for the quilt. The best thing is that you don’t have to send your quilt anywhere – just follow the posts and make the blocks for each week and add to your center block! It will be a fun time and so interesting to see everyone’s quilts as they go along! If you’d like to play along, please join us! Here are the participants. Each person will give instructions for a round and you can use your imagination and interpretation of each one. Plus there will be a link up each week hosted by the designer of the round. Here are the participants.

This week is the center block. You can choose an orphan block in your stash, a test block, or make a new block! I chose to use a test block I have been playing with. The background fabric is an Island Batik Foundation fabric called Almond from my stash. The larger blades, in the upper left corner, are from my stash of scraps and were used in last year’s quilt I designed for a blog hop for Karen Overton, the Quilt Rambler’s, signature collection of Island Batiks called Vincent’s Garden. The fabric used in the lower right corner was provided to me by Island Batik and is from one of the stash buster rolls they sent in my first ambassador box! These rolls are five inches by width of fabric and are from Claudia Pfiel’s collections, Mystery and Melody. Thank you, Island Batik! My block finishes at eight inches!

I’m looking forward to the next week’s round and I hope you will join in the fun. Today I’ll be linking up with QuiltingGail! Have a great week!

See you soon!

    Brenda, nice use of a test block for the center of your SAHRR! I’m enjoying watching everyone’s quilts come together!

    Oooh, I like it! Like little teaser Dresdens! I’ll be excited to see what this grows into!

    Orphan blocks are great for round robin quilts. It will be fun to see you add to this one!

    Brenda, your block looks amazing! I’m so happy that you are joining us in this SAHRR journey! 🙂

    What an unusual block. I’ve sat staring at it for quite a while. Since everyone seems to be doing different size center’s, it appears to me that it will get complicated with the math making things fit. I’ll be watching how you manage that!

    Nice to put a test block into a top. It’s very interesting.

    Just fyi, the fabrics in the stash builder roll were part of Claudia Pfiel’s collections, Mystery and Melody. Great block. Have fun with the RR.

    Hi Brenda! I’m so glad you’re playing along. What is the name of this block? Is it pieced or appliqué or what? Anyway, it will be a fun block to build upon with the next round. I can’t wait to see where this goes. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
