Clown Pants

So I emptied my blueberry basket to make my Coastal Lily berry blocks, but I enjoyed  making those circles so much I turned that berry basket into a tomato basket.


I'm now making these.  Although I'm hand appliquéing these blocks instead of machine appliquéing them.  These little circles have turned into my way to unwind at the end of a day project.



The red dot is 3 inches across, and right now, that white block is 6 1/2 inches square, but I plan to trim  it down to 5 1/2 inches once they are all done.


I've  named this project "Clown Pants"


And hopefully, someday, before I lose my sight and sanity, I'll have one of these.


For those of you keeping track, this is now my 3rd red and white little project I've got going on the side.  First it was baby churn dash blocks, then I added my pineapple project, and now my clown pants project.  I maybe need to move these from my little side project schedule  to the regular project schedule.

Oh, and it's day three of the Diamond Traditions book tour, today is Lisa at Stashmaster's day, I'm sure she's made something great for the tour and it's another chance for you to win the book, stop by.

  3. I love "Clown Pants"! That is so fun. Do you ever have problems with the red bleeding on to the white? Red is my favorite color, but years ago when I was first learning to quilt I went to a show where there was a beautiful red and white quilt, but there was some bleeding in several places, and I thought that would just break my heart if I had gone to all that work, so I haven't made one myself, but I sure do enjoy yours! What do you do to keep bleeding from happening?

  6. if someone says to you, "Thelma, dear, they DO make fabric that is already polka dotted!" you have my permission to slap that someone upside the head ... that is gonna be the suh-weetest red and white polka-dotted quilt EVER!!!


    i have two pairs of clown paints, but neither one of them has dots except for the paint spots and caulk spots - i bought them at GAP for $1.50 each about twenty or so years ago - men's XXL parachute pants - and i wear them over my other clothes when i am doing a particularly messy job ... all i need is a gigantic pair of clown shoes...
