Round 2 is being hosted Emily @ The Darling Dogwood -- plus signs. I used strip piecing to make the plus signs, which finish at 3 inches.

I started this week's challenge yesterday -- it's been a busy week. I made a 14-inch pillow for my nieces.
I found a small piece of an adorable animal print in my stash, so I made some economy blocks.
Now a week's break before the next challenge is announced.

The third is the Exploding Hearts QAL hosted by Laura @ Slice of Pi Quilts. I'm using fabrics from a fat quarter bundle Sunnyside Up by Corey Yoder.

I did an all-over stipple in a variegated thread by Connecting Threads. Sadly, they don't seem to stock the variegated thread any longer. And of course, I used my favourite Hobbs Heirloom Premium 80/20 batting.

In the usual course, a round robin is done in person. Each quilter creates a centre block, and the block is passed to another quilter who adds a row/border. Each quilter in the group gets a turn to add a row/border. With the SAHRR, you are the only quilter working on the project. You choose all of the fabrics and how you want to create each week's theme -- it's your quilt and you choose how you're going to create it.
There are seven bloggers participating, and each week, we will reveal our chosen theme. You then interpret the theme how you wish -- you decide the colours, the size of the border, etc. This is meant to be fun and stress free, as we all sew along together. Since most of us are unable to gather to sew together with our sewing friends, this SAHRR is virtual way for us to sew together.
I hope you'll sew along with us.

Happy New Year!
I'm once again sewing along with Jen @ Patterns by Jen for her monthly color challenge. (It's hard not to spell it colour. 😉) It's a great way to try new techniques and then end up with a finished quilt at the end of the year.
If you're visiting here for the first via the Monthly Color Challenge, welcome. If you are a regular follower, thanks! I've been quilting since 2003 when I took a class to make a flannel rail fence quilt for my nephew. I've been blogging since 2014 -- I started the blog in an attempt to win a prize. LOL
You can find the details in Jen's blog post. You can sign up for monthly e-mails so you don't miss the monthly instructions, which are free for the current month.
