2022 Stay At Home Round Robin Center Block


Here is my center or "starting" block for the 2022 SAHRR! Last year I made a Christmas wall quilt, which you can read about here. The process is fun, with a different blogger providing prompts or suggestions each week for an added border. You can read more information by clicking the Stay At Home Round Robin button in my sidebar.

I chose an orphan Christmas block to be the center of my SAHRR quilt

This block is one I made in 2019, using a Moda pattern called Christmas Logs, and it was intended for a Christmas quilt I made that year.  I didn't fully read the instructions and missed the part where I was supposed to trim each unit of the log cabin as it was made. I ended up with a block that was larger than the other quilt blocks by three inches, measuring a whopping 15 inches square. So it became an orphan block until this morning! A girl can never have enough Christmas quilts, right?

I look forward to the first prompt next Monday! I am linking my post to Quilting Gail's linkup.

    1. Thanks Sandy, yes I've actually got too much going on and want to do them all at once. It would be nice if I didn't have to sleep. ;)

  5. Hi Linda! I agree - a girl can never have enough Christmas quilts. At least this girl! This is gorgeous - I just LOVE the fabrics. I'm glad it isn't an orphan block any longer. Ooh, I can't wait to see where the next prompt takes you. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  6. That is a great starting point for the SAHRR (and might well lend itself to some applique down the road!)
