Taking a Break from Pink and Blue...

Well, I'm finally recovered from the yucky cold, and have spent a couple of days sewing and having fun. The antique quilt is proceeding apace...I've finished that large section that covers the top of the queen-size bed, and will now move on to the drop sections. But FIRST, I need a break from pink and blue! So, I decided to play today with red and white...and here are my first two blocks for Clare's Leukaemia Quilt Project. These are two blocks from Marcia Hohn's Quilter's Cache, Mosaic on the left and Indian Star on the right. What fun to just play around with my red stash for awhile! Tomorrow I'll probably get back to the work at hand, but just for today...I'm having a good time!

I love red and white together. A red and white block looks so snappy. I may have to pull out my handwork red and white quilt to work on now.

The blocks look great - isn't it nice to work on a quick little project that you can finish up and send away!

I really like both blocks, but the one on the left is particularly unusual. I bet it makes a fun pattern when set together.

Dawn said...

ooo - I like them both, but I love the Indian Star! I"m so glad your feeling better!

The most importent thing with our hobby is to remember having a good time with what we are doing. This is just for fun.

Ooh lovely work Diane. Love the Indian star! (Didn't know it was called that, so thanks!)

It is 4:30 a.m. here in California and it is 20 degrees F. I just read your post on my blog.
You said, "Hey, Christine, Just found your blog...so glad to read it! I bought your bookcase pattern when I lived in Pioneer, in the Sierra Foothills, a few years ago, and made a quilt for my FIL, which he loved. Now I live in Australia (DH is an Aussie) and am really enjoying the whole blog thing...keeps me connected...Isn't this a wonderful world?"
It is so neat to be connected on the web. We never met in California, but we will get to know each other a world away with these blogs.
I like reading about your life in Australia.
