Stay at Home Round Robin 2021

Welcome to the official start of the Stay at Home Round Robin, hosted by Quilting Gail!

I'm a big fan of Round Robins, those quilt-alongs that start with your own center, then are passed to the next quilter for them to add a round, and so on. In the Stay at Home Round Robin, which is online, the quilt is completely created by you - there is no passing it around to several quilters.

Last year, I made two online Round Robin quilts with Quilting Gail's Stay at Home Round Robin: Fiesta Garden and the Moon and the Stars

blue, orange, green and yellow quilt, plus one in blue with stars

Hubby begged me to stop Fiesta Garden after the pinwheel round, which I did, and it has become one of our favorite quilts

Having so much fun last year, I've joined with Quilting Gail and 6 other quilters to host the 2021 Stay at Home Round Robin, to create Round Robin quilts completely ourselves. Check out this impressive list:

And today is the start of a fun journey, running through February 28. Each week, there's a new round with a pre-chosen required block, and a linky party to share progress.

For my center, I've chosen a block I made years ago in the Laundry Day quilt along hosted by A Dream and a Stitch and Color, Creating, and Quilting.

Though this block leans patriotic, my intent is not to have the final quilt red, white, and blue. Instead, I plan to work in green, yellow, red, cream, and blue - I can't wait to create!

Won't you join us?

Happy Quilting

  1. This looks fun. I am off to my sewing room to see if I can find a good orphan block for this project.

  2. I remember the Laundry Day QAL. Here's to a great round robin.

  3. That's a fun block for the Round Robin! This is going to be a great sew along!

  4. I loved your quilt last year! Looking forward to seeing your round robin rows!

  5. Reminds me of a really old photo of my husband's grandmother hanging laundry on a windy day. Big house with 12 kids and assorted relatives, lots of laundry. Will make a great memory quilt.

  6. Susan, I LOVE your round robin quilts from last year ... and your centre block for this year is pretty awesome!
    Happy Quilting! :-)

  7. Hi Susan! What a fun center block. I can't wait to see how you build around this house with a cute quilt on the clothesline. Those additional colors will be fab to see added with each round. ~smile~ Roseanne

  8. That's how I started my project last month, using a block created at another time! Great choice.

  9. Susan your centre block is going to be the start of a very pretty quilt with those colours! 😉

  10. What a fun center block! Great choice, and I like your proposed color palette. Fiesta Garden is beautiful!
