Today is the kick off for the SAHRR 2021 version. As 2020 was coming to a close, Gail contacted several bloggers and asked if we would like to take part in this QAL. I was in! I played along in 2020 and created my Corona Round Robin from that QAL. It is finally ready to go on the little foot frame for Gigi to quilt Baptist Fans all over.
When I started considering the center block for this year’s QAL I remembered seeing a neat block on a FB post. I searched, but to now avail, so I had to recreate it in EQ8. My first thought was Christmas colors, I guess because we were heading into Christmas 2020 and those traditional colors were all around me. I mocked it up with a cream background, but it just wasn’t working for me, so I thought black might work. Hello!!!
If you want to play along here’s the deets!
Each week we will publish a post detailing our “round” of the robin. We have chosen a motif to use in our round and will host that week’s link party for those playing along. The link up will be open for the entire week to add your post to. Below is the schedule of the designers and links to their blogs.
- Round 1: Jan 18th Chris @ Chrisknitssews
- Round 2: Jan 25th Emily @ The Darling Dogwood
- Round 3: Feb 1st Anja @ Anja Quilts
- Round 4: Feb 8th Roseanne & Sue @ Home Sewn by Us
- Round 5: Feb 15th Wendy @ Pieceful Thoughts of my Quilting Life
- Round 6: Feb 22nd Susan @ Quilt Fabrication
- Round 7: Feb 28th Gail @ Quilting Gail
We hope you will join us in creating a unique project, with our vision, but using your fabrics and sewing skills. No stress about being precise in your seams for someone else’s project. You work on your top at your pace, making your own design decisions.

Be prepared for some surprises, as not all quilters interpret the prompts in the same way. Some of us are a bit oddball! LOL. While we will be giving you a view of our round, we won’t be giving you instructions on the particulars. There may be explanations of what we did, but we aren’t working from the same block or pattern, so you may have to do some math to work out your rounds. But help might be given to those who ask, it’s up to the designer.
If you don’t care for that week’s prompt? Change it up! While this is a challenge to use the motifs we are giving you, it’s not a hard rule. We want you to have fun and make something you like!
So, are you game?
