Year of the Red Quilt

Here's a stack for you! The gorgeous 'Civil War Tribute Collection' range by Judie Rothermel.
We are using this range for our 'Pieces of the Past' web sampler. I was going to give you a sneek peek of our quilt but I'm thinking it's still a little early. In a previous post I showed you the blocks... that will have to be enough...let me tell you, if you like repros. this will be hard to pass.
I am actually making a quilt for my pleasure... pleasure may quite not be the word...they are 6" blocks... We have had the class a couple times and what the girls have produced are wonderful so
we had a spare seat, so I have joined the class. This is one of the blocks. I am keeping up, 8 made so far!!! only about 400 to maybe 40!
It's officially the YEAR OF THE RED QUILT, here @ the apple shed anyhow! I have finished a couple of red and white pinwheel cot quilts with another to do, almost completed our '15 stars for 15 years' (shop anniversary quilt) also in 'civil war' red. And we are celebrating with Marg Low's Red Quilt Club.
5 mini quilts to make throughout 2010, varying in size, complexity etc. with different techniques, blocks and layouts. Great for the beginner as well as someone who just loves red or little quilts!
Just thought I would let you guys know, that our first group is full with another being held on Friday afternoon's.
I have decided to also make it a BOM. So you too (in blog land) can still join us! This is Marg's pic of the first quilt. The other 4 will be a mystery!
If you know Marg's work, you will know they will be cute! And she loooves Red too!!! (obviously)
Having my DD1's baby shower on Sunday! Will take some pics to show you, next week. She is due with our first grandbaby in about 8weeks! So be prepared for lots of baby pics rather than quilts!!
Have a good weekend, Jane***
