It's quilt day!

Douglas My daughter is going to give her teacher the thank you quilt we made for her today.  Here is a picture of my cutie with the quilt.  I made a print of this photo and we used it to make a card, too.  I hope she likes it!

Work is progressing on the black, white & red quilt.  It's a real struggle for me to work with such a limited color pallette.  One minute I love it, next minute I hate it!  And I'm already having problems making the blocks random.  I didn't think it would be an issue, seeing as how I'm using over 100 red fabrics!  I guess it's due to so many pieces in each block.  Will have a photo of that on Monday.  I took one, but didn't save it as a .jpg, so I am unable to post it today.


  1. I like your red and white quilt. I'm sure the teacher will love it. Isn't the black white and red adding a color you don't have to your red and white quilt? Therefore, a less limited color pallette? I do know what you mean though. I have a hard time making my scrap quilts random too.

  2. Hi, thanks for visiting my blog. I am machine piecing the Jane Stickle quilt, but hand appliquing, and will probably hand quilt it when it is done.

  3. That is an amazing thank you gift!
