Carried away?

Just a little update on the red/white/ blue block progress I debuted as a participant of the Red, White and Blue Blog Hop... I've doubled the amount since Sat.

However, now I'm thinking of spacing the blocks with sashing.  Otherwise I  will need to buy more fabrics to make additional blocks, to retain the secondary pattern.  When I mentioned the dilema to my husband, he said, "So, you're saying you don't have enough fabric?"  (which I will admit sounds funny if you stand in my sewing room and look around... shelves are full of fabric... yet, somehow not the right ones I need for this quilt.  Hmmm... I heard there's a sale at the LQS this week...;o)

Meanwhile, have you been following week two of the Red, White and Blue Hop? I know I have some catching up to do.  So much to see...lots of inspiration and some lovely giveaways too!  Go have a look....

  1. I totally understand your problem. I have fabric in most rooms of my house, but still have to make a trip to the fabric store often to get stuff for special projects. Most of the fabric I have has been given to me because it wasn't right for so many other projects. I do a lot of charity quilts and it is perfect for that, but doesn't always go together perfectly. Love this quilt and can't wait to see it finished.

  2. Beautiful blocks and a fantastic quilt.


Go ahead...say something! Got a question for me? Ask it! I can't wait to hear from you... so start writing... and thanks in advance for letting me know you're sharing in my online adventures. Hugs and happiness to you!
