After seeing so many pictures on various blogs of gorgeous red and white quilts from the exhibition in New York City over the past few days, the urge to start a red and white quilt proved irresistible. I have a feeling I’ll be making more than one red and white quilt as I’ve identified a number of patterns that I’d love to make. These blocks will be used in the quilt together with an alternate block. They finish at 6″. I was inspired by a photo of one of the quilts. Using various Inklingo collections, I printed the HSTs and squares I needed for the block and was stitching in no time. And yes, I’m hand piecing them.

I saw this video on YouTube on Sunday and was absolutely entranced. I cannot imagine what it must have been like to actually see all the beautiful quilts in person.
Lester has taken a bit of a turn for the worse. We’re trying syringe feeding for a couple of days to see if that helps. We got this picture of him last Thursday.
