Time to start staying at home!!!

The title of this post is a little ironic, since as you read this, I’m actually staying at Mom’s. But it refers to the Stay At Home Round Robin sewalong.

I’ve participated two years so far, and this year will be my third. It’s such a fun sew-a-long because it’s all under your own control. You can do whatever you want with each weekly prompt.

This year, I bought a fat quarter bundle with the SAHRR in mind.

It’s called Indigo Cheddar, and it’s is so not my normal colours. But something about it just spoke to me. The navy tones paired with the warm, dusty oranges is just so striking.

It’s all tiny, ditsy floral prints. I just adore ditsy prints. Bigger prints are fun, but they can be a real challenge to quilt with sometimes.

The first challenge of the SAHRR is to make your centre block. There are no rules – it can be any size, any design, it’s all up to you.

I took my inspiration from the internet. Moda is currently doing a charm-pack challenge with their Moda Love pattern. And one person modified it a bit. As soon as I saw it, I knew it would be perfect for my centre medallion.

And I was right! It looks even better in real life than it did in my head! My centre medallion is 16″ square, giving me a nice big start to my quilt.

The first prompt will be released on Monday. I’m not sure I’ll be able to provide an update every week, but I will keep you all apprised of my progress as often as possible.

    What a lovely collection of fabric! I like small prints best too since they don’t usually fight with the block pattern. I’ve got all these crazy Kaffe Fasset fabrics here and they are going to be a challenge.
