SAHRR reveal

 Today is the reveal and parade of all the SAHRR (Stay At Home Round Robin) quilts over at Quilting Gail! Back in January we were to choose a center block and on January 11 there was a linking party to see everyones start. Each week following, a round theme was released. We had 1 week to link up your round.

Round 1 was hosted by Chris @chrisknitssews and she choose piano keys. 

Round 2 was hosted by Emily @Darling Dogwood and she choose plus signs.

Round 3 was hosted by Anja @AnjaQuilts. She choose flying geese.

Round 4 was checkerboard which was hosted by Roseanne @HomeSewnByUs.

Round 5 was stars hosted by Wendy @Pieceful Thoughts of My Quilting Life.

Round 6 was hosted by Susan @QuiltFabrication. She chose log cabins.

and Round 7 was pinwheels hosted by Gail @Quilting Gail. 

Here is my finished quilt!

I used the Frolic fabric line by Sandy Gervais which I bought 2 charm packs and some yardage years ago. I hoped that I had enough fabric to do the rounds!
I did need to add a bit of coordinating fabrics from my stash. When all was said and done, I had several charm squares left over so I decided to add a small border (Kona Lime) and then add the scrappy charm squares as a final round. 
I named this quilt Going Around Again!
The backing was a piece of cotton shirting fabric I had in my stash. 
I quilted each round on an individual basis. Some straight line quilting, some FMQ. 
I used Aurifil 40wt thread in off white.

This quilt is quite bright and not my usual style but I think it would make a nice summer picnic quilt! Its finished size is approximately 54" square.
Here is my attempt at a swirl!
I'm linking up to @QuiltingGail for the SAHRR quilt parade.  Hop on over to see how amazing and different they all turned out!

  4. This was a good way to use the fabrics from that fabric line. Your quilt looks really nice.

  5. Hi Dawn! Love, love, LOVE how your quilt turned out. It's nice and bright and that is definitely in my wheelhouse. That little lime border just pulls that color out in all the fabrics. Lovely! ~smile~ Roseanne
