Stay at Home Round Robin

 I was unable to join the SAHRR this year.  This is a stay at home round robin hosted by Quilting Gail (See this years parade here). The non-blogger quilts are shown. If you'd like to see all of the others click on the link that says Click here to enter, and you will go to the Inlinkz party.  You don't have to enter, but you can see all of the quilts. So fun!

Although, I didn't have time to make the 2023 version, I started my own SAHRR.  It will take a longer time because of my limited time for quilting now - I'm good to even get 15 minutes in some days.

So here's my start:

Center block - ,measures 21" by 23". A print by John

Yep, I'm Ambitious.

Round 1:

That's as far as I've gotten. Starting on round 2 - making friendship stars. Have 14 to make of 18. Hope to make one a day. I want to make a twin bed size quilt from it.

Barbara Brackman did a BOW in 2015 doing sawtooth stars made out of Civil War fabrics each week. Barbara Black made a fabulous quilt out of these stars and a John Hewson medallion - see quilt here .  

That's all for now. What are you up to? Would love to hear. Blessings,

Quilt Finish for 2023

Here's my first finish for 2023.  It was my leader and ender project for 2022. I made it smaller than  the pattern called for. It was with 5"squares. I used 3" squares making it 37" square. All fabric was scraps except the background. Used a medium gray Superior Bottom Line for the quilting except for a black  quilting foot line.  This is an Amy Smart pattern called Sugarhouse Star. Amy's was 78" square.

This was easy and fun to make. And I found a darling flannel for the backing.

What are you up to?  I'd love to go to your blog and check your progress out.  Leave me a message and I'll do the same. I'm linking to Oh Scrap! and Peacock Party .  See you there.  Blessings!

2022 In Review

Got through 2022 with a few UFO and a few scrap quilts - some tiny; some big.  Here goes:


 Made this mug rug for the Table Scrap challenge - 6.5 x 6.5


Table Scrap Challenge #2

This table mat I did finish. 


Another Table Scrap Challenge - had two sets of out of state visitors so didn't finish all the way, but it's a flimsy.

April - sadly very little quilting done this month


Used parts of a panel and 5 orphan blocks for this flimsy that was handed off to a St. Anne's quilter to finish.


Another raid in my orphan blocks pile - this time 8 orphan blocks and one from panel


Another Table Scrap Challenge piece - 12" square.

Here's a top I quilted - my part of the process:

This was a fun Table Scrap Challenge project: 4" x6"

September - another Table Scrap Challenge project  - 12" sqiare

October  A UFO finish - 36" square
November - a scrappy Trip Around the World I finished from a UFO.

Second UFO done this month - Redwork and Irish Chain blocks. Redwork done by my mom.

December - things got hectic again - no finishes for this month.

Happy New Year!
