SAHRR 2022: Round 5

What is a SAHRR?

You may be new here and wondering about it … you can read more about it at the following links:

My Block

This week, I chose “Applique.” Gasp!!! Don’t faint! I’m trying to do things I’m not super comfortable with! Now … if YOU don’t want to do Applique – then feel free to do a “rail fence.” I’m not sure if all of the co-hosts are doing applique or the rail fence – you’ll have to check it out. However, we did decide to give YOU a choice of what YOU want to do!

I started off by sewing 6″ borders on the quilt. When it was time to do the applique, I realized that I did NOT want to be turning the complete quilt around. SEW … out came Jack (the ripper) and I un-sewed all 4 borders. I used Steam-a-Seam light and fused all of the applique pieces in place. Then with a blanket stitch, I stitched around all of the pieces. I’m getting better at it, but boy oh boy – is it SLOW going! But, it is done … until next week!!

I’m using Island Batik’s “Flutterfly” fabric collection with their white solid and Aurifil thread for piecing.

The applique pieces are from Angie’s Bit’s ‘n Pieces Ladybug Hugs. You can purchase the pattern HERE.

Here are some friend’s progress blocks Round 4:

I am totally amazed at how these SAHRR are coming together!!! Everyone is doing their own thing and each is so unique!!! Love, Love, Love it!!!

Here’s Chere’s and she says, “We’ll this is it.  Picked out enough stuff . Sewed extra stuff that didn’t work. Ready for next round.” Looking good, Chere!

Donna’s: SAHRR, round 4 ✅. I decided to replace the negative space in round 3 with the round 4 blocks. Otherwise it was going to be way too big for a baby quilt 😆 Plus, I think it makes the centre block pop more!! I totally agree, Donna! Love the fussy cut bunnies as well!

Mary says “This was easy. Round 4 done. Yahoo🤪 (Mary had it done early Monday afternoon!) Speedy, Mary!

Joyce says, “SAHRR 4th round Signature Blocks added.  I wanted to bring in another colour so added the purple which is in the centre block.  I added the Piano Keys for more colour and less negative space. I added the white blocker as I didn’t like the 4th row adjacent to the black.”

Charlene’s: I like how she is making this into a rectangle!

This is Darlene’s and she says, “I’ve made 12 of these blocks. Not sure yet just how I’m going to place them. Think I’ll wait and see what tomorrow’s block is.” I can’t wait to see what you do next!

 This is Ciska’s who says, “I got it done for a change…” I’m liking the pinks and greys!

  3. Gail your quilt (and everyone else’s you shared) are just beautiful. How brave you are to do appliqué especially those sweet LITLE ladybugs! So much fun to see everyone’s progress and interpretation of the prompts. I love starting my year with this SAL. 😉

  6. Hi Gail! I am totally SHOCKED that you chose appliqué. I really LOVE Chere’s purple star border. WOWEE! It looks fab. Oh those elephants!!! OMG. I love you – what a perfect addition. Lovely. I am wild about the piece. Mary, Joyce, Charlene, Darlene, and Ciska are no slouchers either. Fabulous job one and all! {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
