Last December I received 13 Red and White blocks from our Seams Like Sisters Bee.
They are BEAUTIFUL!!
They are all in a quilt and
In a FINISHED quilt.
This quilt was so much fun to make!! And it was a great stash-buster. I used scraps of red prints that I had in my stash and scraps of batting and some white-on-white yardage that I had. I even had red thread. The reds I had were so similar that you almost cannot tell that there are 5 or 6 different red prints used to surround the pieced blocks I received.
An earlier post described how I made the quarter-square-triangle blocks that are in between the pieced blocks.
I used a Quilt-as-you-go method. I even tried some free-motion quilting on three of the blocks. The triangles just called for straight-line quilting, though.
Maybe the most amazing thing about the quilt is the back. I added a white Ohio Star amidst the variety of red fabrics. THEN, when I hung in to take a photo... well ... you can see faintly see the blocks from the front of the quilt. I LOVE this quilt!!!
I look forward to using this quilt at
And Valentine's Day.
And Memorial Day.
And the Fourth of July.
And Labor Day.
And anytime I want to feel loved!
Thanks, so much to Kelly, Holly, Linda, Renee, Sandy, Susan, Judy, Carla, Diane, Kathi, Priscilla, and Shirley. You ladies just Seem Like Sisters to me!!
