Here it is already Friday and I feel like I haven't accomplished
much anything this week.
I am trying to think back and figure out where the week went.
Monday was the last Stitch Therapy meeting of 2013.
I completely blanked out and took NO photos--my bad!!
|This will be our project in 2014: Simply Red by Kathy Schmitz|
My test block is red wool on a Primitive Gathering's background.
|A photo from the book shows the entire quilt:|
It measures 54"x 65"
There are 388 half square triangles and 120 flying geese.
Or you could figure out your own setting.
|In class we will be focusing on the applique blocks. |
I will be doing mine in wool (and Cherrywood for the piecing).
I may have to do my blocks in (surprise!) blue.
The book is written for fusible applique, but the designs are simple enough to do in turned edge applique if you wish.
These blocks would also be pretty cute just embroidered--they are about 6" square.
So, there are lots of choices to be made!
I know a few of you are going to do Simply Red in cream, tan and black, and I think green was also mentioned.
Of course, red would be totally classic and even make a great Christmas quilt.
It's going to be a lot of fun to see how everyone makes this quilt their very own!

You can order a copy from Colorz for Quilts for $14!
|It's going to take a while to embroider around all those berries!|
There's also been some triangle trimming going on!
