SAHRR 2022: Round 6

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


Chris from Chrisknitssews has chosen Shoo-fly blocks. These blocks were cut with my Accuquilt, using 2 Qube 8 dies. As I was making these blocks – they looked too busy side by side, but putting a plain white sash between them worked. It also helped with the measurement! So all is good!

This is the last round – I may or may not add a small white border … and then it’s going to be sandwiched and quilted. I will be doing my own quilting on my Janome M7.

My SAHRR has used “Flutterfly,” a beautiful Island Batik collection, paired with their solid white. It makes a very ‘crisp’ quilt! I did add a 2 1/2″ border … and it’s now ready to be sandwiched and quilted.

Be sure to link to Chris’s blog … and then return on March 21 for the final parade!!!

Friend’s Progress

I just found this picture from Dawn W on my phone … she sent it awhile ago and I missed it! I LOVE all the shades of green and how each side of the quilt is different, with the tops the same! Awesome, job, Dawn!

Here is Stella’s … she says, “I have almost caught up again- just have to applique my hearts on…this afternoons project….I have run out of a few of my fabrics – the stash only goes so far! But I am happy that I’ve made it this far without needing to shop! Hahaha Depending on Monday’s round- this may be  my finished project….I like this size as I can handle the quilting here in my own space. And I may even have a backing sitting on the shelf already. This is SEW pretty! I Love how the black really accents the fabrics!

Chere says: Actually like the rails.  Probably because I also like piano keys ☺️ Hope the purple got toned down a bit but not lost. Thought I’d bring back in the flower appliqué. Hummm , what is that final round? I’m happy so far , for a first time SAHRR. It’s looking great, Chere! Well now you know what the final round is!

Charlene says: Yeah…another round complete…loving my picket fence…53 x 66…will be a good size throw once I do round 6! Charlene, I love your take on “rail fence” blocks … the picket fence looks great!

    • Thanks, Kathy! And, we are already planning a next time … although not a single detail has been worked out. We need about 6 months before we start talking details! 🙂 However, it will be fun to have you join us! 🙂


    • Hi Emily!
      Thank you!!! It’s really, really hard – if not impossible to make an ugly quilt when you use Island Batik collections!!! I don’t think I have enough teal to bind the whole quilt – but scrappy appeals to me … so that’s likely what it will be! 🙂


  1. It is so balanced that I would have sworn it was pre-planned! The applique flowers on two – no, three! – of the rounds, and the precise geometrics everywhere else – and all those warm tones against the cool, crisp white – make it like a garden with a fence, flowers in a vase on the dining room table. And the ladybugs are wonderful! Thanks for sharing, it made my day brighter.

  2. Gail your SAHRR is beautiful and finishes at a nice size. I’m really looking forward to seeing your finished quilt with some fun quilting. Thank you for sharing so many fun photos of your friend’s quilts in progress. 😉

  3. Hi Gail! The IB white background fabric is really nice and crisp. What size did your quilt top finish at? It is lovely, as are the pictures you’ve shared of your friends’ work. It will be fun to see the parade on the 21st! {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

    • Hi Roseanne,
      Thank you! The SAHRR finishes at 57″ x 63″ and will likely shrink a bit when it’s quilted.
      I, too, am looking forward to the parade! It’ll be great to see what everyone has done!
      Happy Quilting! 🙂
