When I headed up north last week, these little blocks were all done and ready for the next step in a Sew Along.
When I got home I was eager to go to Pam Buda's blog Heartspun Quilts and see how they were to go together. Yep, it was a surprise! I do love how she puts different simple elements together to make such pleasing designs.
Here's my version so far....
It will have a royal blue binding to corral that red border. I went to deep, deep stash for that fabric. Something with tiny red, yellow and blue flower buds straight out of Holly Hobby and the 1970's. I never thought I'd ever use that when I brought it home from my mother's stash of fabrics, but it was just perfect for this project. The shade of orangy-red plays so nicely with the other reds in the quilt. Surprise!
