Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!  Yes, I know we're already a full week in, but I got a slow start this year.

If you are looking for a new project as we start a new year, consider joining in with the Stay At Home Round Robin, also known as SAHRR.  This quilt along is the brain child of Gail of Quilting Gail.  She goes into a lot of detail on her introduction post.  Essentially, it's like a round robin quilt that a guild might do, but instead of handing over your fabrics to someone else, you decide what to do with your quilt.  And you stay home while doing it, no wasting sewing time traveling anywhere!

Just like in a guild's round robin, you create a center for your quilt.  Then each week, one of the hosts is responsible for picking out some sort of theme or element for the next round.  You interpret that prompt however you like and add something to your quilt.  Most are medallion style, but that's not a requirement.  I did a row by row last year.  No quilt police, we promise!

Here is the schedule:

Did I mention we have Sponsors?!?

We reached out to several companies and many of them agreed to sponsor the SAHRR 2024!!! You will get one entry into the prize drawing for every round that you link up. Each linky party is open for a week.  Keep up well for the first 3 weeks but then get behind?  No problem!  You'll still get entries for the weeks you do link up.  We will keep track of all of the participants that link to our Linky parties each week. We will make a list and use a random number generator to choose the winners for each prize. So, if you link up to 3 Linky You parties, you will have 3 opportunities to win! If you don’t have a blog or Instagram account, contact me or one of the other co-hosts and we will post your SAHRR on our blog. This way you still have an opportunity to win!

I hope you will consider sewing along!  For inspiration, here is the list of prizes from our sponsors:
