Stay at Home Round Robin - Round 7

We have reached the end of the Stay at Home Round Robin (SAHRR) hosted by Gail @ Quilting Gail

Round 7 is being hosted by Gail @ Quilting Gail.  For the final round, Gail chose pinwheels.

As I mentioned last week, I decided to combine Rounds 6 and 7 into one border.

Trimming HSTs is so easy when you use Bloc Loc rulers.

And then there was a pinwheel block.

When I started this project, I was using Kona colours in my stash.  I didn't have a definite plan for each round, but I always had enough fabric.  Until this round.  I "ran" out of Kona Natural.  I did have more, but it wasn't washed.  I didn't have time to wash more (because of course, I was sewing at the last minute).  So I decided to reduce the number of pinwheels on each side and then use the lightest pink as the new background.  But...when I did the math, I didn't have enough the pink.  Of course not.  So I had to go with a medium pink.  So now the quarter log cabins in the corners blend into the background.  Note to self:  make a plan and don't sew last minute.  LOL

I hope you have been enjoyed sewing along with us.  Now to decide on a quilting plan and get this project finished.

Each week, there will be a linky party hosted by the blogger who designed that week's round.

  1. I like your last round, it frames the quilt top beautifully!

  2. Wonderful job! I love both the subtle logcabins and the great cheery pinwheels.

  3. I like your modern vibe for your Round Robin, Anja! I do like the bright colors, too!

  4. Love the pinwheels! Bright and cheerful!! It's a wonderful quilt! :-)

  5. I don't think the log cabins disappear at all, I think they are a nice accent. I really like the boldness of the additional pink in the outer border. I like it!

  6. I’m not a pink loving person but I do love this. Beautiful 🤩

  7. Hi Anja! I think those log cabin blocks in the corners with the dark pink last logs really does add a frame-type look to the corners. And I agree with you about the Bloc-Loc rulers. You just can't go wrong when using them to trim those HSTs. Yeah, I was sewing at the last minute, too. Like Sunday afternoon and trying to get a decent photo Sunday evening. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  8. Very sneaky, putting those low value transition log cabins in the corner! The whole quilt looks great!

  9. Wow!! Such a wonderful color explosion, Anja!!

  10. Wow - a so colorful SAHRR! Love how you did the last row.
