LEGOS DECISION, et al

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..)

AND............

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!
