I am at it again! Working on another great design from Miss Rosie's Quilt Company paired with a GORGEOUS kit from Bigfork Bay Cotton Company! I tell you, her patterns are a joy to work on. Her instructions are absolutely perfect, from cutting, to block construction, to assembly.

This is the pattern. I love the original version.....I think I am going to make it with the feedsacks that I have been collecting forever....but that's for later on. This version has a dark, mottled red background, and assorted cream/tan/gold prints, most having some red in them. Some are Christmas-y. (Did I mention that you can purchase the kit from us? We have a limited supply. Give us a call if you are interested....866-245-5718)

Started out making scrappy strip sets and subcutting them......SUPER EASY!

Made a bunch of scrappy hourglass blocks.....FUN!

All the block rows are pieced. Now I am piecing the sashing strips. I LOVE SCRAPPY!

Here is the start of it on my design wall. The red appears kind of orangey on my monitor, but it is really a nice darker red..... It is not a batik, but has a nice mottled look to it.

Stay tuned.....this one is going together really fast! Might even have it done for Christmas in July!
