Red and White Again

One more of the red and white blocks was finished late last week for a grand total of four so far.  I was going to set them with plain white 6″ squares in between, but now that I see them side by side I rather like the effect.  A lot more blocks need to be made before I make that decision.

I couldn’t resist making a red and white 6″ sunflower block.  This is definitely a favourite block to make for me.  Putting the ring of diamonds and triangles together takes no time thanks to continuous stitching.  Who knows?  Maybe I’ll end up with sunflowers as the alternate block for the other blocks.

  1. That would be neat. To have that as an alternate block for the others. I dig that. Smudge looks cute, loved and bright-eyed. Hope his little spirit is healing from the loss.


  2. I love the red and white!! I am new to your blog and I am so impressed with how much you get done. I love hand quilting. Can you please tell me the name of the blue and white quilt (diamonds and hexagons) on your home page? It is beautiful. I have searched the internet for hours for the name of this pattern.


  3. Oh Cathi — I have always loved the Sunflower block, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen it in red and white — it’s beautiful. You are absolutely the best quilter I know at hand piecing.

    I know you have closed comments on Lester, but I was away for a bit and not reading blogs — I didn’t realize what had happened. I just wanted to express my condolences to you and your family. Because of your blog, I really felt like I knew him personally.


I love reading your comments!
