Thanks Tonya for such a fun project. I had so much fun doing this.
Everything for this quilt came from the stash. I was getting low on reds so I pieced the red borders. Didn't realize the one on the right had such a light/bright in with the darks. Kinda makes it look pink but it isn't. I may change that one but . . I may not. I think I'm going to quilt in using the Baptist Fans from Circle Lord, using a variegated ecru thread.
I also pieced the reds together for the binding so mabe that will help make that bottom side not look quite so pink.
I can't wait for the backing fabric to get here so I can quilt it. I believe it will be a Christmas present for Vince . . unless I cave and give it to him early. The top ended up being 68" x 90".
It's nice that he doesn't know where to find my new blog, nor does his friend, Steve! I can talk about Vince here and he'll never know! :) The benefits of thinking of such an unusual name for my blog - judylaquidara.blogspot.com! Vince is not much of a sleuth, nor does he even try to keep up with what I'm doing so I think I'm safe showing his Christmas present here.
