SAHRR Starts! Center Block!

If you need more information on the SAHRR … you can go to THIS POST.

Centre Block

Here is my centre block. The birds and the flowers were cut with Accuquilt dies that I borrowed from our guild’s die collection. (Go! Birds and Rose of Sharon). This piece is 9.5″ x 12.5″. I will do the applique stitching when I quilt it. I used Island Batik fabrics from the Baby Bloomers collection (by Kathy Engle for Karen Overton) and solid white. I initially used the Baby Bloomer fabrics for a Lone Star Quilt you can see HERE.

Now, you Need to go to the co-hosts blogs and see their center blocks! Their links are in the schedule below.

  3. I’m so happy it’s finally time for the SAHRR to begin. I’m in again! So many amazing blocks already linked up Gail. We are going to have lots of great eye candy with this QAL


  4. I love your center block… this is the first year I am joining in – so just so that I understand it correctly – we choose what block and size, etc for the center block? And then get some direction for the next rounds? xx

  6. Hi Gail! I seem to be a bit out of the loop with not picking a bird for my center block. I love this – the fabric choices for the Rose of Sharon are just spot on. I look forward to seeing where you take this in the upcoming weeks. Thanks for the linky party! {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

    • There is no link for any of the centre blocks … each person is to choose what their own centre block will be. Some choose to use an orphan block or a test block, some decide to design their own blocks … it’s totally up to you. Enjoy deciding what you will do! 🙂
