I worked on red scraps all weekend. I just couldn't get them off my mind. I made 5 string blocks and a string placemat and more little hearts, but it just seemed like my red scraps just kept growing! Oh my, I decided I would seperate them to keep them from multiplying and that seemed to do the trick. The pile isn't a big pile anymore, it's a medium size one now! I didn't take pictures of the placemat yet because I didn't bind it yet. I did start putting my hearts together. I think I'll make a few little quilts out of the hearts instead of a big quilt. Some little girls might like these little heart quilts and I'll be working on these this week. I have trouble with diagonal quilts. I'm directionally challenged or something. I have to lay them out and look at them to make sure they are right. I'm putting white and off-white alternating blocks in with the little hearts and I'm liking the red and white. I've had a good time sewing red this weekend and this whole month.
I'm even getting a surprise together for next month. I will be participating in a Blog Hop next month and you can come over and visit me along with a few others for this special Red and White Hop. I'll post more about it later tonight. I'm out of time right now and gotta get busy. Go sew and come back later tonight for the info, please.
