The Stay at Home Round Robin that Gail hosted in 2020 was a LOT of fun! I started with a block made while testing patterns for ScientistGirl’s wedding decorations. I finally got my “Corona Round Robin” top finished in December. And playing along with AP&Q’s 2021 UFO Challenge, this top will be my focus for finishing in January.
Recently Gail approached 6 bloggers and asked if we would like to be part of a new RR. Yes! It will start January 11, and each week we will post a border design.

My Center Block
My approach will be a bit different than the group, as I am only adding 2 sides each week instead of a round. I am trying to keep the piece smaller.
Remember January 11th is our start date. Come join us!
Friday FOSSS!! That’s 3 esses! Cause I have 3!
I decided to make runners for my girls and sister, the week before Christmas! Knowing that we wouldn’t celebrate until Jan 27th, which was postponed to Jan 3rd, I had more than enough time to get them done.
My sister’s is soft blues and sands to compliment her beach decor.
For Diva I repeated a pattern I love, Rhubarb Crisp from The Big Book of Table Toppers. I made it in 2018 for myself.
For Diva I used dark reds and greens, as requested
I decided a simple cross-hatch would be best for this piece. It didn’t need a lot of stitching since it’s a busy pattern.
For ScientistGirl I used a pattern from a new book, Table Runner Roundup.
I loved quilting this one! This was done on Gigi using a circle ruler.
As I look at the finished piece I wish I had placed the blocks better. It would have been more effective if I had put the red outer squares next to the side Flying Geese.
