My first post of 2016!
I am feeling very creative this year, and
have set some new sewing goals.
The state of Utah Quilt Guild will be
celebrating a big anniversary in 2017
and has asked individuals and local
guilds to make Red and White quilts.
The quilts will be part of a touring
exhibit thru the state of Utah during
2017. I love red and white quilts!
I am making my are the
first blocks...
I am basing my blocks on 3 inch
measurements. The blocks
(left to right) are;
Rows 1-2: 6 inch
Rows 3-4: 9 inch
Rows 5-6: 12 inch
I would also like to make some 15
and maybe one 18 inch block.
As part of my hand work, I am
thinking of doing some hand
embroidery in the white centers
of some of the blocks.
Todays hand work....back to my
trip around the world. I am going
for a King size.

What are you working on?

Your so ambitious to go king size on your TATW. They are fun to stitch. I need to get some backing so I can baste mine so it can be quilted next fall. I love two color quilts also. I have had a bolt of red and a bolt of white in my stash for three or four years now. Maybe someday I will get to it! Happy Stitching today

Red and white is such a classic color combination. Love where your quilt is headed.
