It's time for the 2022 edition of the Stay at Home Round Robin, and I've decided to participate! For all the scoop about how this fun QAL works, check out Quilting Gail, right here!
This first week, our job is to choose our center block, and I've done that. I'm going to start with a Kathy Schmitz embroidery design that I finished up last year, but haven't done anything with yet. To go with it, I pulled these interesting prints from a bag of scraps that a friend gave me recently. These measure about 11 x 21. I'll need some kind of background fabric, too - still deciding on that.
My goal is to turn the embroidered block into a
wall-hanging for our living room!
And since this is a Tuesday post, I'll add my to-do list on and share with Linda and friends at Texas Quilt Gal.
I did accomplish all I set out to do last week and you can read about those things in my weekend posts - Rainbow Scrap Challenge and Finished Frosty.
In my RSC post, I listed the Easy Breezy blocks as a project I would like to finish up, and so that's going to be the main thing on my list this week. It didn't take too long to sew up the blocks into a small quilt top - it's 36.5 inches square - just the size for Jack's Basket!
Next step is to finish piecing the backing and get the layers basted for quilting. Hoping to accomplish that this week!
That is a perfect little gem of a quilt for Jack's Basket. It will be loved, I am sure.
I agree with Preeti. It's the perfect quilt for Jack's Basket. Good luck with the SAHRR. That is a perfect center block.
Pretty stitching! This makes a nice center.
Sweet embroidery, Diann! And, yay! Another JB quilt!!!
that should be a good quilt for some straight line quilting looks good
I love that you're using your embroidery! Such a pretty piece to start with, and I'll bet it will look wonderful when finished. The Easy Breezy turned out great and makes a happy quilt for a child, too. It's so cheerful.
Oooh, yes!!! I love the embroidery project/block, fabrics and all. Beautiful! Anxiously awaiting progress on that one for sure! Guess I'm just a spectator again for the RR--different plans on the plate this year!
Great idea for the SAHRR,
Tour embroidery will be gorgeous on the center of the quilt, Diann.
You made me remember I have a embroidery waiting to be something, a pillow, a quilt or a panel. But I am not sure I will join the SAHRR...maybe.
Your Easy & Breazy quilt will make some child very happy.
What a great block to start your RR!!! I love the coordinates you are planning to use.
Hands2Help will be here before we know it, Diann, and you are going to be ready with your first donation. This Easy Breezy will be SEW perfect for Jack's Basket!!
Pretty little JB quilt, and I'm so happy you are sewing along with us for the SAHRR. That little embroidered block is so fun for a center, too!
Some lovely projects and the embroidery will be beautiful.Love that scrappy quilt. I will be watching all the SAHRR quilts as they develop, sounds fun.
Your rainbow scrap project is so pretty, and your center block and coordinating fabrics are going to make a wonderful round robin quilt.
Such a darling stitchery, Diann. And your Easy Breezy quilt looks amazing. Happy stitching.
I think your idea is very clever, Diann!! It’s going to be cute!!
Ooooo I love that bit of embroidery with those fabrics! Your SAHRR is going to be a fun one to watch. Easy Breezy turned out so cute.
Thanks for linking up with To Do Tuesday!
I LOVE your embroidery block for the centre of the SAHRR!!! It promises to be a beautiful quilt! I look forward to seeing your SAHRR grow week by week!
