Red Week, Last Day . . . .

I think we all know this won't be my last red post, I love red too much not to be playing around with something red, but it is my last official red post.

So here's one of my pieced 3 Barns blocks.  (3 Barns is a pattern by Carrie Nelson for Miss Rosie's Quilt Co and is available here)



Now that the main blocks are pieced it's time to start using some of the hsts that I made.

Here's a block "all dressed up" with those hsts. So far everything is going together very easily.



My plan was to wrap up Red Week with a picture of a Little Bites made out of the Fat Quarter Shop Thelma Bundle.  (available here)

Unfortunately my bundle still has not arrived.  So instead you get to look at the pattern I planned to use and studied while eating the Dairy Queen Blizzard of the month.  (it's strawberry chocolate chunk, and yummy, but I think cherries instead of strawberries would be better!)



And even though I've yet to received my bundle, I'm giving one away!  ( really, you saw this coming a mile away didn't you, you've been waiting all week for me to give away a bundle, admit it!)

If the Fat Quarter Shop will ship to you, you're eligible to enter.


On my last giveaway I didn't do a good job with the giveaway deadline and I heard about it!  I understand it's hard to know when it's the end of day for me, you don't know where I am or when my days ends.  So this time I'm making it easier for all of us.  Comments will be accepted on this blog post  until the next blog post.  So the next time I blog, no more comments will be accepted on this blog, make sense?

Since this has been red week, let's have a red comment question, "what's your favorite red thing?"

I have a lot of red things, and not just in my sewing room, I would have to say one of my favorite red things is my red couch, where most of my quilts hang out and look their best.

It's been a fun week of red, thanks for stopping by,

This giveaway is now closed.

  1. I love red and plan to use a lot of it in my home remodel that is underway. My favorite red at the moment is that bundle of fabric shown above -- what a perfect selection to make a quilt for my redecorated living room!

  2. I love love love red. When I buy something, I go for red. And sometimes I just have to turn away and buy an other color. My fountain pen is red, the band on my wristwatch is red. My bin with red fabric is the largest one. We used to have a caravan and travel through Europe on our holidays and all our household items were red. When we went shopping in France or in Germany, I would always stop at kitchen ware and see if there was something in red that I did'n had in my tiny caravan kitchen. I think I had the biggest kitchen "trousseau" ever and all red. We sold the caravan some years ago, but I saved all my red kitchen ware.

  3. Red--such a pop of color! I have a red wall and love red paint. My favorite red might be red M&M's but close in the running would be a stunning red leather purse!

  4. Thelma,

    I love the color red. I am doing the Farmer's Wife in red and white. Would love your bundle the use on it. Also, the little red cardnials that I see out my window each morning is a special delight.

    Thanks for the chance to win.

  5. My favorite red thing has to be a loved Red and White Drunkard Path quilt made by gr-grandmother. I never met my gr-grandmother, nor did my father, but as a child my father slept under the quilt. I am sure the quilt has many stories to tell. Hope your bundle arrives today!!! Thanks for a chance to win one!!!

  6. My favorite red - my fabric stash which would be even better with the new bundle. My kitchen is red, I wear red, love red tulips.

  8. I love red too. Nothing better than a red quilt, especially your Door County Cherry Baskets quilt. I think one of my favorite red things is red shoes! Thanks for the chance to win.

  9. First off those 3 barn blocks are looking real good. The pattern for your bundles will really look good with your blogger choice and can't wait to see.
    Okay, this sounds corney but I have a red pair of shoes and bag that kind of match and they are one of my favorites.I feel like part of the yellow brick road cast when I wear them...

  12. I love red more and more. I'm finishing a red and white quilt and my glasses are red. I love to wear red too.

  13. My favourite red thing is my Rouenneries quilt which I have been making since 2010 (it is for our own bed, so kept getting put on the back burner while I did quilts with deadlines) - I have 2 more sides of binding to sew down and it'll be all done!

    ReplyDelete
  14. My favorite red thing is strawberries. I love the freshness and earthiness of strawberries. Of course, I like a pop of red in all of my quilts. Adds a great dimension to them. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  15. My favorite red thing is a the side table in my bedroom.

  16. Favourite red thing? That's easy - how about a plump juicy cherry from my back yard in early August? I love the cherries almost as much as the squirrels do!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Red is my favorite color. Probably my favorite thing that is red is also white and blue--our nation's flag. But, if I have to settle on something that is all red, it would be my collection of vintage red-painted child's chairs. I love them sitting in a corner, hanging from a peg, next to my fireplace, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  18. My favorite red thing is my toaster. It just makes me happy in the morning looking at it. I will be definitely adding more red to my life. I love how your quilt is coming together. I wasn't sure about the hst's but love them on your version.

    ReplyDelete
  19. What a generous giveaway! My favorite red thing is actually a vintage red and white pineapple quilt that my Mom gave to me. She tells me it was made by her grandmother's daughter-in-law a loooong time ago. Very faded, but very beautiful! Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love the look of your red bundle - I may have to order that if I don't win! My favorite red thing is my guest room. I have a red and white quilt, a redwork wall hanging, and a red quilt storage rack. The quilt rack is my favorite thing in that room - it's a Jenny Lind changing table that I painted red, and it's perfect for storing quilts. I've got to hit some garage sales this summer and see if I can find another one.

  21. I love red, white and blue together. I don't have much red in my home, but its a must to give a pop of color to a quilt. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh man, the 3 Barns block with the HSTs added, they take it to a whole new level! That pattern may be going on my list.

    Red - my favorite red thing at the moment is my daughter's senior picture, in which she is wearing a red blouse.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love the look of your Three Barns block! If one were to make this quilt king size - do you think it would look ok and not be 'too much'?
    I love red but, do not have a lot of it around except for a red coat - which really is not my favorite... :) Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  24. That's a hard question - so many red things I love like the red painted DIY child's chair we built for my son years ago. But then at the moment it's the red couch in my sewing room where a red and white quilt is waiting patiently for me to continue hand quilting it. Your 3 barn block looks phantastic, I can hardly wait to see it all coming together. Thanks for the chance to win and especially for including your readers from all over the world.

  26. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE red and right now my favorite red thing in the house has to be the red and white basket quilt that I am handquilting right now. I just love to come home from work, eat dinner and then put the red and white quilt up on my lap and just relax handquilting. It is so big that my cat usually ends up sleeping on the parts laying on the floor.......and me sleeping under it in the chair LOL

  27. Hi Thelma...

    Your blog is always inspiring...I wish I could get as much quilting done as you do!!

    I have red accents in my kitchen so my favorite red thing is my KitchenAid...I love it, I don't think I've stirred anything since I bought it.

    ReplyDelete
  28. My favorite red thing is a juicy ripe tomato straight off the vine! Slice that baby, sprinkle with salt & pepper...mmmmmmm. Only 7 months 'til September, tomato season. I love your red fabric giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Right now, probably my red dining room walls! Thanks for such a wonderful blog and great inspiration.

  33. my favorite red thing ... hmmmm ... hmmm ... uhm ... oh! i know!!! my favorite red thing is the quesadilla maker!!! see!!! i can find a favorite red thing!!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh I would love a red couch, now that would be cool! My favorite red thing is my first quilt. Well it is actually red and white. I made churn dash blocks and added redwork to make a wall hanging only the creator could love. I see plenty of mistakes now that I've been educated but it will always have a special place in my heart and in my sewing room. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm not looking to win your bundle (garment sewer, not quilter), but I do enjoy looking at your creations and I love red so I thought I would stop being a lurker and throw in my two cents.

    My favorite red iteam would be the wood sled with red runners that we would wax up before taking out on a snow day as a kid. I know we couldn't possibly be the only ones who tied to dog to it to go down the hill even faster. My sister may have gotten our little red wagon, but I got the sled!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I have lots of red in my home as it's my favorite color. My favorite red thing is the red walls in my sewing room. The sewing room is actually the master bedroom and I loved have the red walls so much I kept them when we moved to the spare bedroom and gave up the master bedroom for the sewing room. I've enjoyed your red blog posts this week. Thanks for the opportunity to win your red fat quarter bundle.

    ReplyDelete
  37. A quilt in reds is on my radar so I'd love to win this. My favorite red things are my red toile upholstered chairs which will unfortunately be going away soon as the fabric is worn and grimy after fifteen years and I'm searching for new fabric now. Oddly enough, I'm thinking about blues!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Back in the 60's I owned a red couch and loved it so. I wonder where it is now? Today my favorite red thing is my 2002 red t-bird. You can never have too much red in your life is my motto. Thanks for the fabric giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Easy question for me to answer...my Grandma gave me her garnet and pearl ring before she died. She passed away exactly one year ago today. :'(

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love peppermints. And Raphael (the TNMT who wears red). And my red tank top. And my red pajama pants. And LuLu's red fairy wings. And steak.

    Unlike my mom, I am not red-challenged.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Looking around I see very little red. Victorian greens and pinks. Red would definitely clash in my house. But, since following your blog I am seriously considering redecorating!!! Your red quilts are gorgeous. I think my favorite red thing right now is your Lifetime Quilt #73. I was going to say the most recent baskets, Sassy Toulouse, Countdown to Christmas, Christmas in the City, Cooper in his red berry necklace but 73 is ideal because of all the different patterns, the explanation of how you did this and the perfection of it. Thanks for a chance at this give away!! and for sharing.

  42. Red couch (check...in tomato), red leather bag (check...in garnet), favorite sweater...in lipstick RED! Love the color, in all shades :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. My favorite red thing is my dog. Technically, she looks more orange in the spectrum, but she's red by dog standards. She's funny and loyal and brings us great joy - especially since she's only a year old! We rescued her at 5 months and she's grateful to be so spoiled by us! Beyond that, I'd have to say our dining room. I love the deep red walls that my husband chose! Thanks, Thelma. I love reading your blog. :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I have lots of favorite red things and a red sofa like you. I am always looking for a pattern and fabric to make a new quilt for it.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I have a red couch also, and it is my favorite red thing -- next to all my red stash, of course. LOL! With that, I can make anything red I want to. Hehehehe. :o)

    ReplyDelete
  48. So sorry that you have not received your bundle yet... but here is hoping I will get one too...

    My favorite red thing right now is the red/white Christmas quilt I am working on. I have to admit seeing all your red/white quilts is what inspired me. I know I will have more in my future.. so many shades of red who can not want to use them..

    ReplyDelete
  49. My favorite red thing is my red snowball quilt. I made it when I found your and Nicole's blogs and you were making it. I reproduced it and it looks beautiful hanging on a ladder in my living room.

    ReplyDelete
  50. MMMMM yummy fabric bundle!! I do have a favorite red thing which is a group of little red hearts my mom gave me a long time ago that I hang on my Christmas tree every year. They are a favorite because they remind me of her. She gave them to me because she knew I have always loved little red hearts. My dad always used to say, when asked what color he would like (game piece, candy, etc). "Any color as long as it's red". Thanks for the opportunity to win your giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  54. My favorite red thing would have to be the single red rose I get for Valentine's Day and for my anniversary. My husband's been doing it for 33 years. Of course, that bundle would round out the reds I've been collecting for a quilt. Then that would be my favorite red thing.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Hi Thelma, my favorite red thing is my giant red chair. It sits two people and my feet dangle off the edge. Think Lilly Tomlin and her comedy skit sitting on her huge couch. Lol my chair lives in my sewing room and its where I do my hand stitching and watch tv. My favorite color is red, so this fabric will be MUCH loved at my house.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I absolutely love all your red! Right now my favorite red item would have to be the red wool scarf that keeps me warm this time of the year! Red tulips are coming!!

  62. Your quilt is looking lovely! I have to say you always dress up the quilts in a way I would have never thought and they always turn out gorgeous.

  63. My favorite red thing is a small child's rocker that belonged to my husband and his mother had painted red. We now keep it in our living room to hold small quilts and pillows. Thanks for the giveaway - your red selection is fabulous.

    ReplyDelete
  64. My favorite red thing is a cocktail napkin I made in my early teens that has a frayed edge (on purpose) and an embroidered martini glass done in black thread on a red napkin. I was learning to make things to go in my cedar chest for my 'own' home. I still have them! LOL Brings back so many memories.

    ReplyDelete
  65. My favorite red thing would be a nice sun-ripened tomato picked right out of the garden. A little sprinkle of salt and pepper and yum!

  68. My dining room used to be red, but when we put the house up for sale after Kelly passed away (to be closer to our grandson), realtors told us we'd have to paint it neutral because no one would buy our home;, so, I painted it and no one bought our home! Now, I have a taupe walls in my dining room:-( Seeing "red" this week on your blog has made me happy! XOXO

  74. Love those red stars! I actually have a red lamp shade in my living room that makes me really happy every time I turn on the light. My husband hates it!

    ReplyDelete
  75. My favorite red thing is a painting I did in art class. It isn't a great painting (at all), but in the painting, I painted the wall a bright red. When I see it, I have to smile at the bold choice it was. (and it is a great "neutral" color!) Hope your fabric gets there soon!

  76. Super sorry you are having to wait for that bundle! Waiting is hard!
    My favorite red thing is strawberries!!!

  77. I love Red, I have used red many times in quilts. I like a dark red, not cherry red or Christmas red as much. After our renovations I seem to have number of red accents in my house. My most favourite reds are the ones that you show us (yep I am a brown noser).

    ReplyDelete
  78. I carry a small red purse that I bought in Italy! Yes, that's right. We were on a tour and had stopped in a wonderful hill town called San Gimignano (remember the movie Tea With Mussolini?). This purse was hanging in a shop window and just sang out to me! I had to have it! I really splurged, but I carry this purse all the time, and so I have gotten my money's worth out of it. I love looking at your red and white quilts, Thelma, and would love a chance to win some fabric. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Oh Wow, My favorite red thing is easy...our Goldwing Touring motorcycle. Though my health has kept me from riding long distances or for long periods of time, I do love sitting back, relaxing and taking it the gorgeous view from the back seat and leaving the driving to hubby. Honestly this motorcycle is so comfortable (and so darned big) that I actually nap, when I get tired. But I have to tell hubby if I'm going to doze because we have intercoms in our helmets and if I'm sleeping and he talks to me, I jump and bump my helmet against the back of his, LOL. We call her simply, "Red". Thanks so much Thelma for a chance to win your "bundle". I hope you get yours very, very soon. Big Hugs...
    **oh and just in case you wonder (as so many others do) if I'm not worried about falling off if I sleep, Nope! I have arm rests on either side of me and hubby has a backrest that in in front, so I'm in there pretty secure, LOL.

  82. As a fellow red lover, I have to say my favorite is my red converse shoes. I'd wear them everyday if I could.

  85. I think my favourite red things are red Smarties, or maybe my local football club (MFC, the 'Boro'!) or perhaps my red sewing machine cover (or rather, the sewing machine that's underneath it!) Hmmm, tough choice but I think I'll plump for the Smarties! Thank you!
    P.S. I hope you get your bundle soon - are you sure Cooper isn't hiding it from you?!

  92. My favorite red thing is my Chevy HHR. I guess I get that from my Mom who LOVED red. Her favorite thing was her red/white checked flannel shirt. She wore that thing threadbare. Then we started looking for replacement shirt or fabric for her to make her own. On a shop hop I tripped over a bolt in a shop and it was red/white checked flannel. Bought 6 yards to make more than one shirt. The first thing she did when I gave her the package was cut out and make her shirt. I've made lots of red/white items for her and have inherited them all back. Now it's my turn to do red. ninepatch@hotmail.com Laura

  97. Oh, I want Thelma's choice! My favorite red thing (and I have many since I love red) is a pair of red heart shaped earrings that my two daughters gave me in 1980 for Valentine's Day. I was sick and my husband was traveling and the "girls" shopped on their own and gave them to me. I wore them yesterday and two people noticed and asked about them. I texted both girls and told them that I had the earrings on and was thinking of them!

  98. I never considered myself as a "red" person, but you have converted me. I love seeing how you use red, and how beautiful red looks with just about every other color. My favorite red thing right now is all of your red quilts. I love looking at them and have added several to my "plan to make list". I love the last one you shared and the quilting, " oh man I want one just like it."

    ReplyDelete
  99. LOL My favorite red thing changes...often! Right now it is your bundle. I'm so sorry yours hasn't arrived yet! I love it and have been dreaming of ways to use it. :-) My next favorite red thing is a wallet I have. :-) Love your quilts! And if I could, I'd go get a red couch too. Have a happy Friday Thelma!

  111. I have always loved red and own many, many red things! My all time favorite has to be the red patent peep toe high heel pumps I bought when I finished chemo and radiation treatments for breast cancer. They went a long way to help me mentally recover!

  112. I love Red!
    All things red, but my all time favorite is, Banjo, my red Border Collie!
    He even has a perfect heart around his nose, it's so cute....

  113. I have a small glass bowl filled with little wee pieces of sea washed red brick I collected over the years on Grandview beach here in Hampton, Virginia. They are from a lighthouse called the Back River Light House that used to stand just off the beach. It was destroyed over the years by various nor'easters and hurricanes. My great, great, great-grandfather was the lighthouse keeper for a few years back in the 1800's. That is my favorite red thing at my house!

  116. Thanks for the giveaway. I missed out on the last one. I think my favorite red thing will be the next quilt I make, whether I win your bundle or not.

  118. I love the red fabrics--but my favorite red thing would have to be the red walls in my dining room.

  119. I am surrounded by so much red that it is hard for me to choose which is my favorite. I will say today I can narrow it down to the following three ... my red kitchen, the red pillows that adorn my bed (which my husband complains about there being too many!) and the red tulips that I replenish every couple of weeks in the vase on my dining room table!

  120. I love to entered into the giveaway. I can't believe that you haven't received your bundle yet though. My favorite red thing is red roses!

  121. You crack me up! Even the goodies you EAT have red in them! I wore my favorite red thing yesterday: A red Valentine sweater. It has embroidered and beaded pink, orange, white and burgundy hearts on it. I bought it through the Coldwater Creek catalog many years ago and only wear it for Valentine's Day (so it might last forever!) Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  122. I have a lot of great red things...one of my favorites is a red hand painted sign that says "cherish each new day". And chocolate covered strawberries!

    ReplyDelete
  123. Well, you know I love everything red - but my favorite thing (besides every single piece of red fabric I own) is my house! It is a dark barn red and I love it!! I really, really think your fabric bundle would fit in my world quite nicely! Oh, and I vote for a MONTH of red. It's my birthday MONTH, so it's only right that it be red MONTH as well!

  124. You have such great taste! Red is my favorite too! Thanks for blogging and sharing your wonderful work.

  125. Hi Thelma, My favorite red item is my daughter's red patent leather shoes I saved from when she was younger (she's 28 now). I took her shoe shopping for Easter shoes and I could not get her away from red patent mary janes. Needless to say we were watching Wizard of Oz about once a day for a good long while back then. Thanks for sharing, Yvonne

  128. I've enjoyed your red week! How fun. My favorite red thing is gala apples. I eat one everyday for a mid-day snack.

    ReplyDelete
  129. boy, it's tough picking my favorite red thing...it would have to be my antique garnet ring, that I won at an auction probably 30 years ago. I've worn the band down, and have had to have the prongs repaired. I just love it. Thanks for the opportunity to win some of your fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  130. I had the sweetest red ten speed bike as a kid loved it until I got my first car ......yup you guessed it was red as well :)these days its cherries. We go to the U-pick farm every may and although they now have rather large signs asking people not to sample.....yup you guessed it again we eat just as many as we can stomach. LOVE your bundle !!! Heres hoping ...:)

  131. I begged a friend to give me her vintage 1940s couch when she was tired of it. I had it recovered in RED...It was fantastic until our pups drooled all over it. Its still here, but in the garage...I can't bear to not have a red couch...

  132. I have been working on a scrappy red, white and blue nine patch quilt, collecting odd bits of red fabric here and there. It's a lot of fun, considering blue is my favorite color. Another favorite red thing I have is a really nice red leather recliner that is so comfortable for reading. It reclines at any angle from straight upright to a nice napping position. Sometimes more napping than reading gets done in that red chair!

  133. So sorry to hear you haven't received your bundle yet. The waiting is the toughest part, I know. My favorite red thing (really? singular? Gosh!!!) is my KitchenAid Professional 5 Plus Mixer. Gosh, can I cook up a storm with that thing. I do have red shoes that I adore too, and there's the red ... oh yeah! one thing!! ok!
    Thanks for the opportunity to win. Have a great weekend.

  134. My DH would chuckle over this one but my favorite red thing would be his two MG cars. Especially the 1958 MGA. We always tease him about the fact that all his little convertible roadsters are red. Gotta love a red convertible!

    ReplyDelete
  135. If it has to be real red, I have to say my long sleeve red shirts! Absolutely love them :). If it can be a shade of red, say maroon ... Then my new comforter set my DH gave me for Christmas!

    ReplyDelete
  136. My favorite thing is our red front door. When giving people directions to our house I always tell them to look for the white house with the red front door and they always find us. Thank you in advance for the nice giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  137. I LOVE red too and use it throughout my home in decorating so I can't say that I have a "favorite." I love them all!
    Thank you for the giveaway and I hope you get your pretty bundle soon!

  138. My favorite red thing was my 1995 Mustang convertible...in Metallis Laser Red....too bad it was stolen when we were in San Diego...sigh, oh well...now I comfort myself with loads of red fat quarters instead!! Patty E

  149. I've enjoyed your "red" posts this week! And I would LOVE to win a red "Thelma" bundle! My favorite red thing right now is my set of red everyday dishes--- we use them year round and they just seem to work with every season.

  150. I have so many delightful "red" things; my car, my red and white embroidered quilt, my kettle, my shoes...i could go on and on, but one of my favourites is my sewing machine; a Janome Horizon. I call her Ruby...it was Mom's last birthday gift to me...

    ReplyDelete
  151. Big red fan here! My favorite red thing is a funky vase that my hubby bought me. Thanx for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  152. Your 3 Barns is just gorgeous. I love Carrie Nelson's patterns. I love red and as Mary Ellen Hopkins used to say back in the day, "All Reds Go Together". My favorite red thing here is my red dutch oven. Tomorrow I am making bean soup in it.

    ReplyDelete
  153. My favorite red thing . . . hmmm. I'm going to go with the favorite red thing in my sewing room, which is a coiled fabric basket a friend made for my birthday a couple of years ago. It will be my lucky basket if I win the fabric bundle!

    ReplyDelete
  154. Red? Hmmm.... The three red and white quilts I made after seeing the red and white quilt show in NYC? Or maybe strawberries? Or cherries? Or apples? I think I love all things RED!

    ReplyDelete
  155. Thelma, red is my favorite color too. Your 3 Barns quilt looks great. I'd LOVE to win your selected fabrics! And I've loved your week of red! Carol in Texas

  156. I LOVE red!! My favorite red thing in my house is a red plate that I serve cookies on for my company! I would love to get these red fq's and make a red lap quilt for myself!!!

  157. I am a red lover too! One of my favorite red things is my red tea kettle. It cheers me whenever I see it on my stove. Thank you for the give away!

    ReplyDelete
  158. Lots of favorite reds--but at the top of the list is the set of Old Testament Stories redwork embroidery blocks made by my grandmother in the 1920's. They will become a quilt as soon as I find the right red fabrics to go with them.

    ReplyDelete
  159. Hmmm, that's tough because I love red. Lots of red in my stash, my laptop is red, I'm adding red as accent with the mostly tan furniture in the new home we are building. But, I think my favorite red right now has to be the little deep red glass tiles that will be randomly scattered in the tile backsplash.

  160. I love red! I am knitting a red sweater for myself but I think my most favorite red item is my red shoes. They are stylish and the most comfortable shoes I own!
    Thank you for the giveaway opportunity!

  161. My favorite red thing is my red wool coat with white fake fur trim. My family teases me about my santa coat, but I love it!

  163. My favorite red thing is my Kitchinaid mixer. I just love that splash of color on my counter. Actually, I love all things red-it's an "energy" color for me.

    ReplyDelete
  164. WooHoo looks like I'm gonna make it just in time to enter your generous give-away...thank you so much :) I am really drawn to red - especially when it comes vintage kitchen collectibles. However, my favorite red item would have to be my modern day red coffeemaker 'cause I could not live without my morning cup of joe!

  166. So hard to pick one favorite red! Love everything red, but especially when it's fabric in a red, white(cream), and blue quilt like the Quilts of Valor that I've made. My red stash is the largest in my sewing room, too!! And I love Cardinals in the backyard in the winter! Thanks for the chance to sew with some gorgeous fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  167. I have to go with the red strawberries that I am having with my lunch! Yum!

    ReplyDelete

  171. My absolute favorite red item would be a ruby ring my hubby gave me on our first Christmas. I was in total shock, as we had only been dating a few months. It's absolutely beautiful, however the sentiment is greater. I think he thought it was my birthstone, as I wore a ring my mother gave me, which I have now given to my daughter - love, love, love RED!

    ReplyDelete
  172. My favorite red thing is an outdoor covered glider my in-laws lake cabin. It belonged to my husbands grandparents and is just a wonderful place to relax and while away a summer day. Thanks for the chance at your red fabric giveaway...hope you get your bundle SOON!

    ReplyDelete
  173. Hmmmm...I'm going for my red Kitchen Aid mixer. Love it.

    ReplyDelete
  174. This is an easy one to answer. It is the red velvet teddy bear that my Mom made me for my birthday one year, probably somewhere in my thirties then. Just love it.

  175. I love my mostly red Buggy Barn Crazy Cats quilt. Thanks!

  182. My favorite red thing? That's HARD to pick! Either the set of red mixing bowls that I was sure were stolen when our house got broken into while we were moving and then found in a box several years later. Or the red phone shaped like a high heel that my Hubby bought me while we were dating.

    ReplyDelete
  183. My favorite red thing is my PT Cruiser. I love that car. I just recently realized that I do not have much red in my stash - I need more red! I love what you put together.
