Sewing Sunday bonus edition... stay at home round robin


the row to be added this week was flying geese. 

I've done two round robins and can't say they were that much fun but this one gives us the leeway to work on our own designs. I started with the Lori Holt sewing machine pattern, my stash of cute sewing fabrics, and did the piano key border (bottom), the plus signs (top) a pin cushion block, and now my geese in cute fabrics!

I knew I was going to use cutie fabrics for geese but what around them?? I found this white with black dot, just right, in my stash...

Whatchadoin Mama? It's a nice day you should go out and play (with me)

who needs a pin cushion when there are scraps right here?

I stick a pin thru the joining corners of each unit, to the hilt, on both ends. Then put tiny clips along the sides to keep it in line to sew!

this is one setting, before I stitched the bottom geese together

I decided to wait to sew it down til I see the next row...

oh scrap! 


  1. I added my plus sign section to my SAHRR project today, but may take it off again. I’m not at all sure I like how it looks. Luckily I only added it to one side. I didn’t choose wisely when selecting a background for those plus signs.

  2. It is going to be so pretty. YOu picked the perfect colors and perfect center. The flying geese are to die for.

  3. Hi Leeanna,
    That's going to look great in your sewing room ! Cool tomato pincushion :)

  4. Looking good! I like what you did with the plus signs.

  5. Hi LeeAnna! LOVE your center block - what a great use of it. I'm so glad you're joining in the SAHRR! I adore those Plus Sign blocks and how you've overlapped them - and the pin cushion. Adorbs. I can't wait to see how you add the checkerboard border now. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  6. This looks great. Thanks for sewing along with us.

  7. Oh! I have some of those clips. I need to start using them for the end of the seam because I have found that I tend to go off to the right when I get to the end. Love what you are doing with this little quilt

  8. Isn't this turning out cute? Such a great idea to have a Round Robin at home. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.
