I’m doing double duty with today’s Stay at Home Round Robin post. I didn’t manage to get Round 3 completed in time to participate in the linkup, so I’m doubling up today! Thanks to Quilting Gail for organizing this fun challenge.
Round 3 was hosted by Anja Quilts and she asked the quilters to make a round of flying geese. I used this tutorial by Amy Gibson to sew up flying geese using charm squares, which made the process a bit faster (and a ton of fun – it felt a bit like dancing with fabric). I let myself get a little stressed about falling behind, but I’m happy with how this round turned out!
Our current round – Round 4 – is hosted by Roseanne and Sue at Home Sewn By Us. Their challenge? Checkerboard! Because I didn’t want to fall behind again and because I thought the quilt could use a little white space, I decided to do a super simple round and put the checkerboard in the corners and use the background fabric on the sides. Juliann at Chasing Stories inspired me by doing something similar with her third round – thank you, Juliann!
I like this little pause and am hoping it works well with the last two rounds. I really like how that red rose fabric is working out in the corner of each round! I’m ready for Monday and our next set of instructions.
Again – thank you to everyone who is helping to host this fun project. I’ve been quilting for 8-9 years and have never done anything like this – it’s been really cool to just go with the flow and let go of control over a project. I should try it more often!
