It is not Valentine Red! A quilt unveiled on Valentines Day should be red!
Here is another quilt for the 6 boys. They range in ages from 12 to 6. Did I tell you they moved the wedding from July 3 to April 4? No sweat!
This one is an interesting piece. I was in a group that pulled scraps together and made fabric. We each named a block or style and the group made blocks. When it was my turn I asked for a warm square and a cool square.
For a while I had a top with all the blocks put together. Then one day I decided to slash them up and add some black strips. And I slashed that up and rearranged some of the colors. It sat in my UFO pile for a few years.
Before I decided to do quilts for all the boys, I was thinking of taking the top and slashing once again. I was thinking in terms of a stained glass window with little odd shaped squares and black lead strips.
Now it has turned into this. Another piece of my mother's stash completes the top. I will have enough for the back as well, or close to it.
It is 54 x 54, another square quilt and we all know how much I hate those square quilts.
And I have enough of the colors for one, and maybe two, more quilts!
