Red and White

Hi Everyone!

Happy holiday, whether it was today or July 1st!

Today my fabric came for Elizabeth's Red and White Challenge. The red is such a vibrant scarlet, I was reminded of the lines from a favourite song:

                                               Red and white, blue suede shoes
                                               I'm Uncle Sam, how do you do?

and the song kept playing in my head while I cut and sewed. Does this happen to you?

Here's a picture of my square.
The red is deeper than it seems in this picure.

               I've got another cut and ready to go, and then I'm going to start adding other fabrics.

              I've got a dot sitting nearby that is the same perfect red, it is just meant to be!

I thought I'd put the dot in the rectangular side pieces so as not to overwhelm the square.

As I mentioned before in my blogging, red is my favourite colour to quilt. Here's a picture of my first two colour red and cream quilt with Everest in the limelight!

                                             Then I made this quilt with leftover HSTs

And now I'm thinking of getting out all my reds again to do something different.

 Any suggestions?

Until next time
