I would love for you to join me (a retired senior)in my zany crafting adventures with quilting (waaaaay too much fabric); scrapbooking (will I ever catch up?); redwork; counted cross stitch; crossword puzzles; reading; and cooking.

I am leaving the RED RED block in place and adding this whimsical 
red border
on either vertical side...

these dollies have been in my stash for quite a
while (I made a couple pillow cases for granddaughters with 
most of it..)


Now, in the interest of full disclosure...that last purple block on the 
lower right--
well, when I was truing it up to 10.5"---

it turns out
it was really short--but only 3 strips...

way too short, in fact...aaargh--oh nooooo

ummm but, Julierose, they are HORIZONTAL and the

whole quilt  is VERTICAL--
well, so be it!!  I am not making that block over again.....

Life with quilting is NEVER boring...always something to figure out, right?

I am definitely a "make-do" quilter--I love that book that came out a
few years ago:  "That Dorky Homemade Look"...yup...;))))

Thanks to all of you who took the time and trouble to leave me suggestions about my RED RED block...i really appreciated it...

So, that is the news from our hot hot hot SE CT--not venturing outside
for walking at all--way too hot and humid..

Hugs, Julierose La blageuse (snow ball making-euse-- 
sounds cool, right??)


  1. That red border balances out the quilt perfectly! Great idea! I knew you would figure it out. That horizontal piece looks fine. I hardly noticed it. It's so humid right now! We had bad thunderstorms earlier. Looks like a hot weekend too!

  2. I like it. Those girls are watching that red and purple block very carefully.

  3. The red border is a great solution.

  4. A great looking solution, JR.
