SAH Robin Block 1

I've decided to join in with Kate North's Stay At Home Robin quilt. You can read more HERE on Kate's site.

As if I haven't enough piling up on my cutting table already, I just like the thought of the unpredictable journey this will take.  I have no pre conceived ideas just lots of scraps I would like to use.

This first block, and I'm still not sure if I'm happy with it, was some left over 1.5 inch squares in recycled, over dyed silks. They are a little wonky but I think it could add charm, they are quite tactile, and there are plenty of options still to come.  This is my Robin, for me only and it doesn't have to be handled by anyone else.  Nice thought eh!!


  1. Love these silks. You nearly tempted me but I managed to pull myself back from the brink.

  2. Nice block - I will grab it and add it to the list on my blog. Still can't reply to your comments on my blog, but that's ok, I can comment here...

  3. We are doing a similar round robin in our guild, where we work on our own. Plus my small group is doing a round robin where it is passed. We are 2 rounds from completion. I haven't seen mine in almost a year!

  4. Lovely bright block.
    I'm looking forward to this project.

  5. Thanks Kate.

    Hi Narelle.
