Challenge moving along ...

Now that my cold virus is behind me, I've been doing some sewing on my Red/white challenge. This is where it was at mid-December ....
moving along ....
to where all the blocks are finished. The rows need to be sewn together (the orange pieces that you see at the top of each row are row markers to make sure the rows are sewn in order) and then borders to be done. Usually, I procrastinate on borders, but not this time!
Have a great day!

I like all the reds you have combined together on your quilt top. I did that on two or three quilts. They are always a hit when I show quilts to someone.

First I thought you had an orange patch in the blocks *LOL* it is going to be a beauty.

Lesly said...

It looks so much bigger than mine - did you increase the size or is it my imagination? I like the decision to use all white blocks on the outside! Looks great!

Jennifer said...

It's looking great - I bet it will be on display for July 1st!

It's looking great! It appears you made your blocks 9" like I did! It turned out larger than I realized. You'd think I would have been able to figure out the size with basic math but somehow it just slipped by me how big it was going to be. I can actually use it on a bed!! Yipee
