2022 Stay At Home Round Robin Catch Up

My post is all about "catching up" with the 2022 Stay At Home Round Robin (SAHRR). Today's prompt was provided by Wendy at Pieceful Thoughts. She named a block I really like, the Signature block. Go check out Wendy's as well as other versions of the signature block. I found a length of bias strips I had sewn together in my stash that have a very similar look, so I am calling mine "spirit of signature block". 😎


The previous prompts were "diamonds", by Emily at The Darling Dogwood,  and "stars" by Roseanne and Sue at Homesewn by Us.  For diamonds I added a diamond-in-a-square in each corner.


For the heart, I took an idea suggested to me by the joyous Joy at The Joyful Quilter and used embroidery stitches on my Janome to outline a heart in the big white center of my beginning block. I am not accustomed to using embroidery stitches on my domestic, and they are a bit rough and uneven, but I love the overall look and am glad I used variegated thread. Thank you Joy!

Be sure to go look at the beautiful interpretations of the rounds at Wendy's linkup, where I am linking my post!

  1. Hi Linda! Well, well, well. Aren't you ever so clever?!! I just love the variegated thread with the embroidery stitches in the center block!! That's the perfect solution and addition to that spot just begging to be filled. And your signature blocks look fab. I'm SO glad you hung on and got a prompt that you like!! There are only two prompts to go - man this time has gone by quickly. {{Hugs}} a bunch! See you tomorrow. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. Look at that embroidery in the center - that was a great idea, Linda! I bet it was fun to play with those embroidery stitches on your machine. This is looking good! I'm a little stick on mine today - have made the pieces for last week and this week, but I'm stuck on how to make them all go together. That's the challenge of this challenge!

  6. That is such a clever idea. I still can't get happy with mine, but a top I was trying to finish is done, so it may be time to really focus on SAHRR...only 2 more weeks to go, so it is time I buckled down.

  7. Outstanding border around your center. The star in the middle added so much as well.
