SAHRR 2024 – Parade of Quilts

I can’t wait to show you my finished Stay at Home Round Robin quilt. It is completely different from where I thought I would end up. Its funny how this often happens with these quilts.

A Review of Weeks 1 – 6

I rather forgot the progression, therefore a little slideshow will show you were it all began and how we progressed week to week.

I wasn’t done when I added the 6th prompt. When I was discussing it on email with Gail, I came up with a plan!

More Sea Glass

Sea Glass was the answer. This came from some sea glass I had collected over the summer. Quietly, I had participated in the Summer Lovin’ Seaglass SAL where you picked a color scheme, things that gave you joy and tracked them for the summer. Something distracted me and I never finished the entire collecting of fabric sea glass. No time like the present. I dutifully finished cutting the sea glass I collected over the summer for things like walking, going to the water, seeing friends, quilting, date night, and reading. I thought if I put June’s collection on the quilt it would be perfect. It was! I am thinking of putting July & August sea glass in a map of Peaks Island….we shall see if I like it or not.

The Quilting

I was pretty sure this would wind up being the perfect quilting pattern Catching Waves/Bubbles from Christy Dillon. It quilted like a charm!

And here’s a picture of the front and back! I decided to use Linen Glide for the back – and it was perfect. The front was quilted in a light blue that nearly disappeared in many places so you focus on the fabrics and the texture rather than the thread. I decided to name it “Summer Glimmers”, as I really just love the way it turned out and the memories of summer glimmer like the sea glass on this quilt.

Quilt Stats

Summer Glimmers 40″ x 40″
Batting: Quilters Dream Cotton
Piecing Thread: Aurifil 50wt Dove
Quilting Thread: Superior So Fine Pastel Blue #494 and Glide Linen

Linky Party

And now it is time for the Parade! I am so excited to see the finishes – whether quilted or not. I love this sew along because you are pretty much guaranteed to have a top at the end and be ready to quilt. I hope you enjoyed the Stay At Home Round Robin as much as I did.

    So pretty Kathleen – those little fabrics look just like sea glass! It’s so, so pretty, and of course your quilting is beautiful.

    That is a fabulous quilt. I particularly like the quilting design. It really enhances the quilt with lots of cool texture.

    Kathleen I just am swooning over your quilt. The sea glass addition and the quilting design are perfection. It is my kind of quilt and will be a wonderful addition to your home on the island.

    Kathleen, your quilt turned out so beautifully. The addition of the sea glass and then the quilting is absolute perfection. It is my kind of quilt, and it will be a wonderful addition to your home on the island!

    Oh, the addition of the sea glass ties it all together, Kathleen. The quilting is perfect, too. Since you added your collected joys for June to the quilt, is this one you will be keeping or do you have other plans for it?

    Oh, I loved your top already, but the sea glass is a marvelous addition, and then the watery quilting. What a wonderful representation of summer. Thanks for your participation with your prompt and all the time and effort you put into adding ideas in your posts.
