Sew much fun! a finish

This is the day where we share our Stay at home Round Robin quilts. I call mine "Sew much fun!" 
It's 33" X 43 " the center and three blocks at the bottom were from Lori Holt's book of patterns. The rest is from prompts to surround your center block with Piano Keys, Plus signs, checkerboard, flying geese, wonky stars, log cabins and pinwheels. 
I had a great tie finding sewing fabrics in my stash to use, and love the bright fun colors!!!


I did wonky log cabin blocks because they are more fun to me and I just love the row of them here. 
I waited til the end to design the whole thing, knowing I wanted each prompt to go on one side but what side I wasn't sure.
 
I used special hoarded Jane Sassamon fabric on the sides and for the binding. I had to do the binding one side at a time because of the fabric print, matching the gradation on the sides, top and bottom. 
oooo I love lime and bold pink together! 
I learned I love these tiny clips... so useful in lots of ways in studio! I made that beaded flower bowl this year and it's perfect by the machine to hold tiny things. I was happy to finally use this pink fabric  from my stash for the backing. 
 I loved the rayon superior rainbows thread on my turquoise "spool" and quilted SEW onto the machine as a subtle reminder to myself

Pat said she wondered what embellishments I would add. and surprisingly I didn't want to add much. I ironed on some tiny rhinestones around the needle then another row where the control panel would be

I remembered to add a label this time... I often forget that part this year
for the moment it's hanging on the design wall but it will soon move over the cutting table.

So I am thankful to the organizers for prompting me to make this... it was challenging and fun and I like my finished product a lot!

I love how this turned out. You did a fabulous - and artistic - job of using each clue. I'm taking your advice and making my SAHRR into a table runner as is. Thank you for suggesting that was an OK step to take.

The asymmetrical layout worked really well in this wall hanging. And the sewing theme was perfect for you. So many little details and lots of creativity. I'm glad you stuck with it.

Oh Leeanna! Your SAHRR turned out beautifully! I never would have guessed it was a round robin quilt as it looks well planned. Great finish!

This is a perfect addition to your sewing room! Clever placement of word fabrics and I like how you only placed each prompt on one side to keep the size down! Nice!
