Long Time Gone - week 3

Crosses of the UK
These are turning out to be surprisingly small blocks -- I guess I didn't think about the finished size and how everything would fit when I decided to work on this quilt.  But anyway: so far, so good. 
My 'background' is beet red, although sometimes I'm subbing in other red/plum fabrics for background.

Westering Women



Worked hard on this binding today, and it's DONE!

This is my version of Barbara Brackman's 2016 BOM, Westering Women.  Thank you, Barbara, for an excellent study series!  Looking forward to this month's Yankee Diary article :)

I'm counting this as a Slow Sunday Stitching entry also, because finishing the binding with coffee was a nice start to my morning.

RSC17: March - red


Sort-of red: this week I finished up this small quilt using
red and blue 30s-repro orphan blocks. 
And that'll do it for RSC red ...

Long Time Gone - week 2


Well, this project isn't going to be my usual
color palette or fabric style, is it?
