It's time for the Stay at Home Round Robin QAL for 2023! Check out Quilting Gail's post to get the details. Thank you, Gail, and friends, for continuing to host and sponsor this fun event!
I have participated in the SAHRR both in 2021 and 2022, and here are my finished quilts. 2021's project was made with a fat quarter bundle in pretty shades of light and dark turquoise and light and dark pink. It turned into a wheelchair quilt for my MIL.
2022's quilt is still hanging where it was put a year ago - by the fireplace in my sewing room. It started with an embroidered center block and was surrounded by scraps of Petra Prins prints gifted to me by a friend. This is one of my all-time favorite small quilt finishes!
After going back and forth about whether or not to join in again this year, I have caved in and decided on a center block. I embroidered "Welcome Winter" late in 2022 from this design at All People Quilt. The pattern has you make it into two long pincushions, but I decided to do something different. I also had made some dark blue string blocks that I cut into 3.25 inch squares and used to surround the embroidery. Right now this measures 11.5 inches square.
My plan is to make a blue and white quilt this year! I think I'll start by adding a narrow white border all the way around to bring this up to 12.5 inches square.
Maybe it will be done in time to Welcome Winter back again later this year!
Looking forward to seeing what the first border prompt will be, and that's coming next Monday from Roseanne and Sue st Home Sewn By Us.
Meanwhile, I'll be sharing my center block with Quilting Gail.
