Red and Aqua – You Gotta Love It!

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.




  1. I saw this exchange on Melinda's Blog. I can't wait to see all your final blocks from everyone. I would never have thought to put Red and Aqua together...but it looks great.

  2. I can't do anything without you copying can I - just like when we were kids :)

    Seriously, I am glad you joined. I got most of my squares cut but haven't sewn any of them yet.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I love knowing that I'm not alone, blogging into thin air.
