SAHRR – The Parade of Quilts!

I’ve had so much fun sewing along with the fun prompts for the SAHRR.

This was the QAL schedule and our fabulous hosts for the weekly prompts:

I have to say a huge thank you to Gail and the rest of the quilty crew that has kept me motivated to sew with my favourite QAL to start my year.

I challenged myself to use leftovers and scraps for this quilt and was playing with an idea of mixing cream and white backgrounds to see if it would make the quilt look as if light was shining on it. I did get it sandwiched and did some ditch quilting and some straight line quilting. Then it didn’t take long to get it squared up and binding attached by machine. I spent an evening last night hand stitching the binding while DH had the tv on. 😉

Here it is completely finished and sitting on my desk. I had decided when I started the SAHRR that I wanted to make a cover for my Mac, printer and keyboard since our home gets really dusty in the summer, and if I’m honest to hide my pile of papers which need to be filed 😉.

It is the right size 😃. I am contemplating doing some big stitch hand quilting on it now that I’m looking at the photo, but I think I’ll wash it before I decide to do or not to do. It just might need that crinkly finish! 😉

I’m sad this fun challenge QAL has ended but satisfied to have another project I needed to do off my list of ToDo’s. 😉

Thank you for stopping by. I do enjoy our visits and love getting to respond to your comments. 😃 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

    1. Hi Ioleen. Thank you for your sweet comment. I saw your lovely quilt on Gail’s post. It is beautiful! This is one of my favourite challenges and I do try to do it every year. 😉


  1. A beautiful finish! I like the echo quilting around the spool–really makes it “jump off the page”. I never thought of using a quilt as a cover-up and to hide things. This opens a whole new realm of possibilities!! LOL
