Welcome to a new edition of Mini Monday! It's been a while since the last post in this series. Today, I'm here to reveal my center block for this year's SAHRR.
SAHRR is the Stay at Home Round Robin hosted by Gail @ Quilting Gail blog. (Follow the link to find out more, as it's not too late for YOU to join in!) If you've been following my blog for more than a year, you might recall that I participated last year. If you are new here, you will just have to take my word for it, the QAL was fun and I enjoyed the design challenge.
What will your center be this year, Joyful???
My center is an orphan block which was found in a drawer beside my sewing machine. I apologize to its maker, as I no longer recall whose scrap bag it came from. It may not be quite SEW mini as some of you might expect from me, but...
It has a little bit of a story to go along with it...
... Last week when LeeAnna @ Not Afraid of Color asked about what block I would use for this year's SAHRR, I had to admit that I didn't have a clue. As soon as I admitted that, a lightbulb moment occurred!
I reached down into one of the storage drawers beside my sewing table, rummaged around for a short while and plucked out this block:
It's (mainly) RED in honor of January's Rainbow Scrap Challenge hosted by Angela @ So Scrappy so I decided it was the perfect start to my project:
It probably won't progress the same as the projects of others might. The growing quilt will tell me how to proceed. Keeping up will be the real challenge, as it was always the reason I never participated in the making of a "real" Round Robin quilt. We'll just have to wait and see how this goes. I'm planning to try to complete it in a new (for me) way with this quilt along. (Last year I completed my top as a ROW Robin.)
What have you gotten yourself into now, Joyful???
Well, I'm starting "on time" this year, so that's a bonus! Here's the schedule for this year's SAHRR event:

Thank you to each participating blogger! I'm looking forward to each new round's reveal. Although, I'm not promising to keep up with everyone else. There's a currently LOT going on in my studio! It's Project QUILTING season AND there is a commission quilt waiting to be completed. I will try to my best (even if that means falling a week behind like last year.)
Until next time...
QUILT a Round (robin)!!!
