      My finished Postage Stamp block for this month....lotta red REDS!! LOL

                                     "Red sails in the sunset...."
                 yikes, looks like this sailboat is floating sideways  (oops!!)

                      "...Can she bake a cherry pie, Billy boy, Billy boy, 
                        Can she bake a cherry pie charming Billy...."

                                "It's the Japanese Sandman......"
I was thinkiong of all these old tunes as I sewed up this block..

I am hooking up with superscrappy today--drop in to see what
 we RSC-ers are up to this "red" month of July.......

The latest on Fi's quilt is that I have quilted all along the width and am set up for the length--I don't need a lot of quilting; just enough to hold it securely
as the front was QAYG-ed.  Hauling that big quilt (big for me, anyway) 
through Helga really puts a strain on my shoulders and arms....but it is nice
to see a finish nearing......

  1. Love the Reds, Julie. I hope you are feeling much better.

  2. Very nice! So fun the things we think of as we sew different fabric pieces together.

  3. So many pretty reds. Sure to brighten up any quilt.

  4. Sounds like you had so much fun working the reds into the postage stamp block. OOO - backs are no fun when they are out. Get better soon.

  5. That's quite the selection of RED you have there!!

  11. Seeing postage stamp blocks all over the place is making me itch to sew up some of my leftover squares... Best wishes for the end of the work on Fi's quilt.

  12. Love your reds and the sneak peeks at the fabrics.

  13. your reds look so nice. dont overdo on that back. the quilt will wait.......I have some that have waited for years! LOL
