A quick update on the RED AND WHITE quilt. I ran out of star point blocks so need to make a few to finish the borders. The original didn't have borders, but I decided to carry the points out into a red border.

This is a Nancy Rink design I saw on her web site a while ago. I found it in Jan issue of McCall's Quilting.  These are the blocks. and the stars are made with the sashing.  This is as far as I've gotten. It's a large quilt, seems to work up easily and quickly. Simple piecing. Makes a great quilt. Jimmy, the quilt critic, gives his approval.

Purple Haze (RRCB) is now a flimsy! The backing is ready, it's packed up and ready to for the long arm quilter. This is a very big quilt and it's VERY PURPLE!!!! Another wonderful Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt. This was a fun quilt to put together.

It took a while, but these will be the colors of the inner border and the outer border. You will recognize the outer border as one of the first steps with 'wings' added as one of the last steps. Wonderful border. Looking forward to working on RRCB Quilt 1 again.

RRCB Quilt 2 New Slow Down Techniques

I'm not leaving without my scissors. 

What scissors? I don't see any scissors. 

What do you mean  "Get off the blocks? It's warm here"

Something New

I don't know how many of you have tried Mary Ellen's Best Press Spray, but a friend and I were talking about it the other day and how much she liked it. I happen to mention that everyone I knew thought it was the best thing since sliced bread but had never tried it because of the expense.

Well, look what arrived from my friendly UPS guy today!!! WhoooHoooo!!! Can't wait to try it. :-))) Thank you, Rita!

RRCB Quilt 2 Step 8

I put together a few blocks just to see what finished quilt might look like. Still deciding on the inner border color.
