What do you get when you add house love to red love plus 2 coloured quilt love?
Yes, a red and whit house block quilt! Or hopefully soon to be!
For a while now I have been working on these blocks very kindly produced FOC twice monthly by 'Sentimental Stitches' and 'It takes Two'
lots of threads to clip!
This is going to be a wall hanging when I get 1 more block made and the sashing and borders on.
What happens when you can't decide on whether to do traditional red and white or different reds with a tea-dyed fabric......
Make 2! So I am quite behind with my actual red and white (there are 20 blocks in total)but if I get the first one finished for Christmas, I will be very happy!
I had great difficulty getting the sizing right because UK printers and papers are different to USA. I settled with enlarging 105% for the wall hanging and ended up with 103% for the red and white which seems to be a much better fit, but I sure am not re-doing them.
I don't have much else to share with regards to stitching-shall we just say everyday living gets in the way?
Thanks for stopping by,
