While the Pink Version of this quilt was given away to a friend, I am keeping the red version for us.
For my version I didn't use any sashing between the blocks--just a slightly different look than the pink quilt.
My 11 yr. old son helped me arrange the blocks and get it so that none of the strips were touching another strip of that same fabric. It was like solving a puzzle. We finally got it down to one last block and it just wasn't working. I even had 2 extras made and none of them would work.
He finally said to me, "Why don't you take this one piece off and just sew a different piece to this end?"
Voila! problem solved.
This is why 2 heads are better than one.
And then he says to me, "Since I helped you can I have some chips?"
Boys....they are pretty easy to please.
Here's me in "action".
Not sure which kid took this and when,
but I found it as I was loading the other pics for this quilt.
I really love the back--almost a bit more than the front. That bird print just makes me happy.
And daughter #3 wants a skirt from it. Not sure it will happen for Christmas, but....
