Seeing Red!

As we all are this month at the RSC 2017.

Well. I've been in the sidelines. I have sewn, a lot! I got so many red scraps taken care of. I still have a ton. And three more planned blocks...the boots. I may get to them this evening. I have been sewing all afternoon. I sewed on and off all week. A lot of off though, too much to do outside of sewing.

I'm going to finish up the boot blocks and then take my machine in for it's spa day, or week, what ever it takes. The poor thing is in desperate need of a tune up. I have put more mileage on it this year than all the other time I have owned it.

So without further ado... the RED...

This one was one I did years ago, 2013 I think. I decided to throw it in, instead of throwing it away. I'm not in love with it, but when you take blocks like this and add them in with others they turn out okay.

These are my contribution of Tula Pink's blocks from my 100 Modern Quilt Blocks book.

 Then my Wonky Log Cabins.

And two of my three quilt as you go strip blocks. I don't know where the first of the three went. It's probably in the RSC 2017 storage bin. I'll find it and get it listed next Saturday with the boot blocks.

Now I'm off to see everyone else's pretties!

Wow, Claudia! Your red scraps are to die for!! And you made such great block with them!! I think I've got a soft spot lately for string blocks, but the Tula sampler block are divine. You had a very productive week!

You did get lots done on the red blocks. They are great. I love all the little sampler blocks. I have to make a few red sampler blocks too.
