Last Saturday in Red.....

My goodness, I had not done any red sewing until Friday afternoon! A big Thanks to Grandma who took the kids this morning and still has them until after dinner (they didn't have school, you know cause they were off last week and needed a day off already!).

I did manage to get 2 of my blossoms done.

I also whipped up a few.... or 9 friendship stars. I'll probably pull out some maroon over the next week and add 2 more blossoms and 3 or more friendship stars to the mix.

Sometime I'll get some bow ties prepped and sitting next to the machine for some mindless piecing and leader and enders.

The big news... I finally got my Grandmothers Choice into a top - ok, sew I added a smudge of fabric to 'fit' one side and sewed two seams together as it was in 3 parts... but hey, it is a top! I am debating calling it done or adding a border. Right now... I just want it done and off the pile so it might just get pinned and wiggle stitched this weekend with a binding added to finish it off in purple. That's the plan anyway. How is your GC quilt coming along Quilter Kathy?

Linking up to the RSC Challenge on Saturday morning.

  3. Your red blocks look amazing. Your Grandmothers choice quilt top is beautiful. Congrats on getting it to this stage. It will look beautiful either way, with or without a border.

  5. Lots of pretty reds in your blocks. Congrats on getting Grandmother's Choice into an almost finished flimsy. Those long seams are tedious. Happy stitching this weekend.
