SAHRR Stay-At-Home-Round-Robin Details

Happy New Year – Happy 2021! A SAHRR (Stay-At-Home-Round-Robin)! What is that and when does it start . . . is that what you’re wondering?!! We are joining up with six of our quilting blogging friends to host a SAHRR starting officially on January 18, 2021. Typically, a round-robin involves sending your piece off to friends for them to add the next ’round’. Eventually, after all the rounds, the piece would make it back to you nearly complete. In this COVID-era round-robin, all the rounds are sewn and chosen by you. Your mission, if you’d like to join in, is to choose a block that you’d like featured in your quilt. It can be any block you like/love – you’ll be adding seven ’rounds’ to feature or highlight it.

Each week will feature a different border or block to be added to your center block. It’s up to you to determine the fabrics used, the size of the border, and whether you will add it to all four sides or less. Our hosts will share their choices and some tips for your success.

Weekly SAHRR Linky Party:

Additionally, each week there will be a linky party to encourage you to share your progress. We will be opening our usual To-Do Tuesday linky party early so you may share. Don’t forget – your first mission is to decide on your center or medallion block. We are all looking forward to seeing your choice.

    This is a great idea! I can control the fabrics and have no one else to blame but myself on the quality of construction. My center will be a new-to-me project that is about 35″ square. Love that the Round decisions are made for me. Will play along until the top has reached its desired size. Liz in Houston

    And now I wish I had an orphan block hanging around! How did you do that Roseanne?! lol

  3. Dawn says:

    This sounds like fun and I’m rather tempted to put it on my list! I’ll follow along if nothing else!

  4. Ginny says:

    This sounds very interesting. I might just have to join in.

  5. This is super tempting. I will think about it although I really shouldn’t. There are so many tantalizing quilty things to do in January.

  6. This sounds like such fun, but I’m just going to watch from the sidelines.

    I know you’ll have a blast with this! Looking forward to seeing your quilt progress!

    I have a block that I’ve dithering about that should be perfect for this! I’ve been thinking about joining To-Do Tuesday for awhile, so this is a good time “to-do” it.

  9. Sounds like fun, Roseanne. I’ll try to join to use up loads of scraps 🙂

  10. Susan Nixon says:

    Sounds like fun! I’ll cheer from the sidelines – I’m not doing too well keeping up with things yet. =)

  11. Laura says:

    This sounds fun and I will be following along, Roseanne! I won’t be participating…I already have a long list that I want to complete, but temptation abounds everywhere! Happy 2021 to you and Sue! 🙂

  12. nanamickie says:

    This sounds like so much fun! Happy New Year!

  13. I think I’ve already bitten off more than I can chew for 2021, but I’m a little tempted. Does the block size matter for the size of the center block? Happy New Year!

    • Roseanne says:

      Any size you want! But don’t feel like you have to join in – I understand all the temptations that are plentiful right now. ~smile~ Roseanne

  14. Sounds like fun, Roseanne! I’ll be following along, and maybe even sewing along, too!
