2022 SAHRR Parade of Quilts


Today is the 2022 Stay At Home Round Robin SAHRR) parade of quilts. I joined SAHRR for the first time last year and was not about to miss the fun this year. You can find a great definition of the SAHRR on Roseanne and Sue's blog Homesewn By Us. The suggestions, or "prompts", for each round were given and demonstrated by a different blogger each week and included curved borders, diamonds, stars, signature blocks, appliqued hearts, and shoofly blocks. I tried to keep these additions small and sparse.


Original block

My original block was one I had left over from a Moda Christmas sew-along. I had made errors on cutting this pattern, and it was bigger than the other blocks, so it became an orphan. I love this pattern and the fabrics are some of the first beloved fabrics I bought after I started quilting.



Joy from The Joyful Quilter suggested that the big white center space would be perfect for some applique or embroidery, so I used my Janome for some slightly rough embroidery stitches, as well as a place for the appliqued heart.


White border on left and green border on right

I was inspired by so many other bloggers on this journey, and Sherrie of Food For Thought inspired my last border. The yellow border she sewed on her SAHRR started me thinking about a colored border instead of the white I had, so I changed mine to green and like it so much better.


I have decided to leave the top as it is until closer to Christmas when I will decide whether to make it into a wall hanging, a table topper, or use it as part of a larger quilt. When that time comes I will do a follow-up post.

Great big Thank-Yous to GailAnja, Emily, Roseanne and Sue, Wendy, and Chris for your fun and challenging prompts and for all your hard work in pulling off another successful Stay At Home Round Robin. I'm already looking forward to next year!

  2. I agree on the green border instead of white, Linda - that's perfect! The embroidered star and appliqued heart are also perfect for the center of your quilt. I love how this has turned out!

  3. I love this color combination (I say that all the time, don’t I), and the sheer beauty of all of these quilts. I have so much lovely fabric that I wish we lived closer so you could teach me how to do it. Every time I look at my fabric I think, gee, this would make a wonderful quilt, then I put it back in the drawer. LOL!
