When I went looking for a strip for my Diary Quilt to mark the passing of Hugh O'Brian ("The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp" among other acting gigs and philanthropic work) I found two red prints that were pretty small. I've spent the day cutting them up and making an assortment of blocks.
I've continued to make the 6" shoo-fly blocks out of scrap patches, just not always in the RSC colors. There haven't been very many ships in the last several weeks either so it was fun to be able to make this one.
I've always admired two color quilts, and a red and white one has been on my bucket list for years. I've never been able to settle on a block pattern however. There are so many good options! After browsing on the internet this morning I decided to start making bear paw units.
|These units will finish at six inches.|
On another front, I've cut white with black squares and pink strips for 35 Patience Corner blocks to be assembled between seams or whenever I need to just sit and sew.
