Here it is, the 6th of April, and I'm just now feeling like I'm home. We got back from NY on the 29th, but I guess we're getting older, and my recuperation time from vacation takes a bit longer these days! Sheesh!
I finally got back in the sewing room, and figured I needed to prepare something red and white! I'm just still in that mode, and I can't think of anything else these days! So I got to planning, and cutting, and this was going to be my next leader/ender project.....but I just couldn't wait to see a block finished from it! HA!
This works up to be a 6" block, and I have enough of this particular white to make a good sized lap quilt. I chose a fairly thick white cotton, to help eliminate the shadowing from the red. I've used muslin whites before (in my baby quilts) and the amount of time I spend trimming seam allowances to keep the darks from peeking through is just about enough to make you crazy.....and on this quilt it would have!
This pattern was one of my favorites at the red and white exhibit.
The snow is finally melting away, and we are doing a little dance!
Have a great day!
