a little red and green...


... to get into the spirit of the season. You may recognize the pattern from Denyse Schmidt's book, it's called Any Way You Slice It. I searched my stash for seasonal colors, some solids and some of Denyse's prints from Greenfield Hill.

The blocks are made loosely based on her templates and in a slightly smaller scale. They end up at 7.5" and are put together into two smaller pieces for the table.



The inspiration was found at LeeAnn and Jolene's .... Now, all I have to do is completing the quilting. Slowly quilting these by hand. Trying to pace myself and rest the arms a bit. No hurry, except the fact that I would love to put these on the table in a weeks time...

; )

Have a nice weekend!

It's great, Marit! I love your red with white and olive green. Very striking. Don't hurt your arm! There's always next year. I always love a scrappy string quilt.
