Well here is Miss July - complete with her pieced block borders. I've named the sash & block design that surrounds my redwork block "Rockets Red Glare".
Speaking of RED..... I'm really excited about a new Red & White applique' project that I will start working on in August. The quilt pattern by Susan Garman is called Sarah's Revival.
Here are the fabrics I picked up at my local quilt shop this past weekend. At first, I considered using assorted red Civil War fabrics. But once I saw how intricate the blocks were, I decided batiks would work best for me.
No time frames or pressure deadlines with this project. I may only complete one or 2 blocks a month while watching some evening television. Whatever my progress, I'll be pleased & content to be stitching for the JOY of the process.
