First Blocks of the JT2 Sew-along
Here are my first 6 blocks of the JT2 Sew-along sponsored by Brenda Papadakis & Gay Boomer. I was going to wait until the redwork was completed for these but time is marching on and the 2nd set of blocks for January have already been posted.
I'm looking forward to participating in this FREE Mystery Quilt sew-along. It's exciting to see the beautiful blocks that so many of my fellow blog friends are posting. I love all the creative fabric "interpretations" - so much FUN!
I chose to make my quilt just slightly off the traditional solid red/white version. I'm using Jo Morton prints from her Jo's Variety collection, a few medium & dark red solid fabrics and for the background I am going with a variety of "Cream & Tea" hued tonal print & solid fabrics.
If you'd like more information on how to join - just click the JT2 button on the right side of my blog. HURRY the patterns for January are only FREE until the 1st day of February - when the next set of free patterns become available.
My name is Doreen aka Aunt Reen.
I've been a passionate quilter for 30+ years.
I love all aspects of quilting and find great joy in teaching and in learning from other Quilters. I am especially fond of sewing small scale quilt blocks and also enjoy applique'.
