Dealing with Red is a Neutral first off.
This is the invitational with
and the back story is on their blog.
I'm going with a Liberated Wedding Ring
inspired by Gwen Marston and Freddy Moran.
Today I stitched four 7 and1/2" blocks using
a stack of reds, a heap of scraps and Vilene as the
foundation for the strips.
Four of the small blocks form the ring as below
but the effect of twenty of these larger blocks with all the red could
be a bit too much for the eye so I'm going to sash them
more of these are set down for tomorrow.
You might remember the two small quilts shown below.
It's pretty impossible to have quilts hanging in our living room,
we have two large sets of glass doors, but our entrance and
hallway is a good spot and my two "top" ladders are in there
I came to the conclusion that small works would look good
hanging on the doors - laundry and the first bedroom
leading off the long hall.
Sailing Through Suez
The doors look as if they need a good clean, but I can assure
that's not the case, they're off-white and the
angle of my photograph throws shadows here and there.
Apologies to those who read this blog and also AHIQ
as I have a post over there as well!
