July is Red

The RSC colour for July is Red.  I finally got the solid red border on this quilt last weekend.   
 With some help from my friend Lisa I found a suitable back.  The back got made and the quilt got sent to my long arm quilter, Vicki.
Then I finally worked on some RSC blocks, these are my red Scrappy Sprouts (leaves).  I haven't made any of the other blocks yet, but I have unpicked the left over strips from the bargello.
Thereby ensuring I have even more scraps to work with!
Happy quilting Sue.
PS the bargello is back from Vicki, who has worked her quilty magic in an amazingly quick turn around.  Just stitching the binding on, will show you very soon.

  3. Awesome Bargello! I like your leaves - they remind me of the Road to Tennessee block, sort of. So many settings for a little square with 2 diagonal "ears"

  16. I am very much looking forward to seeing your rainbow sprouts come together. I forgot to mention in an earlier comment that Bonnie Hunter's challenge is a tumbler quilt. Are you going to do the same design as her? It is a staggered design and looks great. Good luck busting those scraps!
