Lately I have felt a little disjointed going from one sew along or quilt along to another. I am popping in to share my progress on the Stay at Home Round Robin quilt.
SAHRR Block #2: Stars
This week, Wendy at Pieceful Thoughts of My Quilting Life asked us to include stars. I already had one, and thought, I can do that!
I found a similar star that I liked and worked it up in EQ8. I decided to paper piece as the pieces were small…finished blocks at 1 5/8″ for a finished 4″ block.
I think it worked out well.
And, here are my 4 stars together in the borders. Our internet was out for the day…complicating my time so this is a rushed post. Wendy’s party closes at midnight and I wanted to link up. I will add the border pieces tomorrow….but there may be a coping strip, so I have to figure that out before I finish it up.
Here is the schedule if you are interested. The first two connect to the right post so you don’t have to look for it. Its not to late to join. You are totally in charge of your stay at home project…do a block or a row or not. Come, join in on the fun. There are prizes, too, this year…an added incentive to making your block into a useful quilt!

Other News or Ideas
I have made progress on the Diatom QAL and will show that later this week. I have a few more blocks to make for the border of block 2 and then catch up with block 3. I understand the border blocks…drunkard’s path for the postage stamp setting so that will make it easier.
I have a few squirrels knocking at my door, some little gifts that someone is making each month and may get onto one of those, but the list is long and we have had some internet & heating time sucks so we will see if I get to play or not!
