Stay at Home Round Robin

 I have decided to jump in on the SAHRR hosted by Gail at Quilting Gail.  

Unlike a traditional round robin where your initial block is passed on to a succession of people who each add a round, this round robin will never leave the house but a different person will suggest the next round each week.  The "rules" are very loose and you can be confident that the end product will be up to your own standards 😉.

I took the easy route and pulled an orphan block out of my crowded orphanage.

When the AQS show was in Nashville (early 2000s), I participated in a "booth hop" where I visited the 12 designated booths and picked up a kit for a block.  All the shops used the same fabric line, but some used different colorways and some had erroneous instructions.  So in the end I had 12 blocks that didn't fit well together.  I must have used 8 of them somewhere else because I only have 4 left.

This week's instructions came from Chris at Chrisknitssews.  She recommends the first round be piano keys, so I spent this morning choosing my fabrics and making my first two sections.  Check back at the end of this week to see how I do.


  1. The SAHRR sounds like fun and you are off to a great start. Marlene

  2. That pretty Orphan block is a perfect jumping off point for your SAHRR project, Libby!!

  3. Just read all your recent posts, Libby. Loved the flocking robins and that new colour that is neutral but warm. I liked it too. Lots of fun on your trip away and this SAHRR project too. Way to go!
