Tile Quilt progress

Another block done for my Halloween tile quilt

Once all nine blocks are appliqued and joined together, I might jazz things up with some embroidery and embellishment.

Threads of Memory

My goodness, another month gone by already!
Block 7: Oberlin Star

Maybe next month we'll finish all the blocks for one of the rows and then I can start working on sashing.  Not sure if I'm going to do something pieced like the example, or just plain bars of interesting fabric.

RSC14 - Red

I had a little bundle of dark red odds and ends and decided to use them up this week as
the finale to RSC14 RED month.
Half log cabin blocks were quick and easy.
I squeezed out 24 blocks before the RED fabrics ran out, which was my goal. 
With the borders on, this ended up looking more like a *red*and*blue quilt*, but oh well,
 the RED intention was there :) 
When this top is quilted, it will be a comfort quilt
for my guild.
