SAHRR – Round #5

Just to remind you … SAHRR is Stay At Home Round Robin. If you missed the previous posts about this year’s SAHRR – you can see them

Today is the day that Wendy told us to add wonky stars. I’m a rebel … and I did friendship stars instead! I used the Accuquilt to cut the half-square triangles. Do I ever enjoy using it for those!

However, I didn’t do the math very well and I have extra stars left over. I wanted to leave the cornerstone as a plain white block, so … who knows what will happen with those extra stars?

Again, I continued to use a variety of fabrics from Island Batik’s Ohana collection.

Make sure to visit all of the other co-leaders and link up toWendy’s linky party to show us your blocks! HERE

I’m working on my March Island Batik project. Sorry, no pictures yet!


I took a Silly Moon Ruler Quilting class on Saturday by Zoom. It was fun and I learned some things. Believe it or not – the fabric is dark blue and the thread is light grey . Obviously, my phone did not pick up the true colours!

Stash Report


No change from last week!

  • Fabric Used this week      0  yards
  • Fabric Used this year:        5 yards
  • Fabric Bought this week:  0  yards
  • Fabric Added this year:      9 yards  (my husbands amounts as well)
  • Net Fabric used                   – 4 yards
  • Husband’s purchases:  0 yards (which are added into my total amount of Fabric added this year). For those of you who don’t know … my husband often buys more fabric than I do … so, I’m keeping track! Unfortunately, he doesn’t sew!

Stitchin’ Time

I’m aiming for at least 30 minutes a day.

I have stitched for over 30 minutes each day

  • January –  31 / 31
  • February – 14 / 14
  • Percentage = 100 %

  3. It’s been fun to see all the different versions of the SAHRR. I love your colors and the addition of friendship stars rather than the wonky stars. Congrats on being at 100% on the stitching time front. You’ve been moving many things along, you’ve already got finishes on your PHD report. I appreciated your to do to ignore the squirrels. Sometimes that has to be the hardest thing on the to do list!

  5. Hi Gail! Total success on your to-do list is just fabulous, as are your friendship stars. The name alone seems just perfect for this SAHRR project. Your quilting looks fab but I can’t believe the fabric is blue! WOWEE! I’ve found that I have to add something white in the picture to get blue to photograph correctly. I’m not sure why that works . . . but it has. Your stash report is impressive as is your SAHRR piece. Each border really does highlight that center medallion perfectly. ~smile~ Roseanne
