So just like the rest of you I have all this extra time on my hands, LOL – NOT! But, I just love the idea of a Red and Aqua quilt.
Being the jealous type, I was reading my sister, Melinda’s Blog and saw that she was participating in a Disappearing Nine Patch, Red and Aqua block exchange. She said they were excepting 100 swappers and that she was No. 94. Well not to be out done, I ran, not walked, over to Jane’s Fabrics and Quilts Blog and immediately sent Jane an email. Well guess what, I was No. 100, YEA!!!!!
Off I went to the quilt store. Mind you I have a huge stash but no Aqua and very little Red that would work, so I had to purchase more fabric. I figured I would need about 1/4 of at least 12 fabrics. I bought 1/2 yards so that I would have some in my stash for the next time. Here’s what I now have.
The red on the top row, second from the right is one I’ve had for a long time. It’s tiny little airplanes and one of my all time favorites. I like the variety but I may have to visit another store just to see what else would be even more interesting.
Now, all I have to do is figure out how to make 25 blocks over the next two weeks. Because, of course, I have nothing else to do.
