Robins at home

Although I’ve previously said I’m not really fond of mystery quilt-a-longs (or knit ones), and last year’s blockhead journey made me realize I’m not that into sampler quilts.

But, there’s a 28-day Stay at Home order in our province, so it seemed like a good time to join the Stay-At-Home-Round-Robin ChrisKnitsSews shared last week. While the weekly prompts are a mystery, I like the idea that we have full control over what we do with them!

I had this fat quarter pack sitting around, just waiting to become something awesome.

The collection is called Jane Austen at Home, so it seems appropriate for a stay-at-home quilt-along! And there are so many pretty fabrics in here.

So to join in, I needed to make a centre block. While I’m no longer making the Blockhead blocks… a recent one just published seem perfect.

I up-sized it to 16 inches to make a substantial centre and I’m pretty pleased with it.

Burton is too, and we can’t wait for this week’s prompt to add to it!

    I am so envious of those of you that live in a country where leaders care about keeping you safe. All my favorite podcasters in the UK make me sad now because they are all tucked in and we have been thrown to the wolves. I doubt that will even change on Wednesday. Money is just too important here. Lives don’t matter.
    I love your new material and that block…..wow. It’s a stunner.

  2. Val, if my comment was wacky last night. Forgive me. I was trying to post comments on my phone and I was so tired. It was not a win win.
    However, todays comment on this Post is just fantastic! I love the paisley
