Red Projects in Process

The practice silly strings blocks have become a quilt top, with the addition of tomato red squares from my red cotton scraps and a bit of linen.

Silly String Blocks + RED

I thought it might grow larger, but as I extended the red background, when it grew to this size, I decided it was "done." 

I had some leftovers squares and rectangles that will likely become a messenger-style bag.


Leftover Red Squares

I haven't been quilting much, as I pep are to jump into some new contract work. I haven't yet made any of the blocks for my Mod-Mod quilts–the July update was published yesterday on the Block Lotto.  I plan to make the spokes blocks I need for these quilts during this month's Friday Night Sew-In.  Some of them will be red– this month's Rainbow Scraps Challenge color.

There's been a bit more red progress going on around here.  I've made a couple more red Briar Patch blocks for the scrappy version of that quilt.  I'm joining Lee's party for WIP Wednesday.

That silly strings quilt is beautiful! (And I'm not usually a huge fan of red, but that is just the perfect color for the string blocks!)

Such nice work - love the black and white print with it. I wonder - when you are finished with these highly satuarated colors what you will find appealing next. More colorful fabic? Or pastels? Beiges and tone on tones?

It looks like some bricks popped out of the wall exposing silly strings! Nice idea!

Those strings are great -- they look "done" to me too, I'm sure the extras will find a good home someday.

Is that a navy blue behind the strings, it looks great with that tomato red. I love it!

So pretty! love the variety of reds in your projects. Hope you schedule a little needle time each day once you are head deep in the new contract.

You do have a big red stash. Looks good! Especially like the red and black together - very dramatic!

It's so important to listen to the quilt when its says, "I'm done." You did and it looks wonderful.
