Welcome to (Not so) Mini Monday... a little bit early!! It's the way it's going to be for the duration so that I don't miss the Link-up. I shared the beginning of Round One of my 2023 Stay At Home Round Robin (SAHRR) last week. Wendy @ Pieceful Thoughts of My Quilting Life is next up with our assignment for Round Two.
And the verdict is...
What do you have planned, Joyful???
First, I plan to sort through my stack of holiday blocks to see if there might be a star or two in the mix:
Here's where I left things with Round 1...
A single spool block had been constructed and my center had encountered a game change:
Where will Round 2 take me???
Let's have a look...
I discovered this hidden in the YEARS worth of accumulation:
But what will you DO with it, Joyful???
I had a few ideas about that...
1. Quarter the block I shared above.
2. Make small stars for cornerstones.
3. Incorporate Anja's Round 2 into my project somehow.
Could I come up with unexpected??
As I thought over my options, I had a sudden flash of brilliance! It sounded like a really good idea (in my head.) But would it work on my quilt? I thought it might (and I may still implement my hair-brained idea at a later date), but for now I'm thinking of another idea.
Ultimately, I decided...
To dive into my stash! I was on the hunt for starry fabrics for a simple border. Would I find anything to suit my needs? On the way to the studio, I had another idea. Star. Stars. Didn't I just make some fun stars? My strippy denim stars (found in THIS post) were fast and fun. There are SEW many options for color and background combinations. I think I still have the templates. As for the STAR prompt for Round 2, I went with something completely different!
A block stack to give me a larger rectangle to build my quilt upon...
I thought about using these three which balanced the red nicely:
Opted for throwing them ALL in there and hoped that I won't regret sewing them together:
Please, visit the other participants in this week's Link Party and stop back here to see how my quilt will progress with Round Three.
Here's this year's SAHRR hosting schedule:
Until next time...
Sew a Round!!!
