The red has it

Well since so many of you liked the red and I liked the red (among others) AND I LOVED the red fabric itself I put on the red border. No I didnt' get it quilted this weekend - but I did sew the borders on! Wooo Hooo - like that took a long time!


And from my scraps of my miniature I made a little 9-patch quilt! I have a fork next to it for size! It is so darn cute I may just make another one like this!


And here is a version of this challenge from my friend Nann. She decided to use homespuns and made the blocks full size - isn't it wonderful! The blocks finish to 13" I think she said - a whole lot bigger than my 3-3/4"!
