Last Saturday in Red.......

First off are the two snails trail blocks in red and maroon. Hard to find a light shade so I went with a white print. Here are all the blocks so far.

As for my little apple project this month....... Here she is!
 I was planning a nine patch outer border but I really wanted to get this to a top stage so I pulled this maroon from the closet and finished the top. This measures 36x36. I plan to hand quilt this one - outline quilting on the apples and some apples in the outer border, little leaves in the inner brown. Not sure if I'll do a diagonal in the nine patch or another apple outline there. I guess I'll decide that once I get there.

Head on over to SoScrappy on Saturday and see all the wonderful red projects people are working on. I'm also hooking up with Kathy's Quilts on Sunday for Slow Stitching Sunday. I hope to have this one pinned and ready for a little hand work on Sunday evening.

  13. I think you are helping me make a decision on how to use the red bolt of fabric I have. That snail trail is wonderful. If I add some off white it would make a great two color quilt. I am not a very good piecer, is it a hard block to piece?
