Anytime I can blog about a finish on a Monday it's a Red Letter Day. But in this case it really is Red Letter Day.
This is Lifetime Quilt Number 139
The pattern is Red Letter Day by Camille Roskelley for Thimble Blossoms.
The fabric is Fruit Stand by Jane Farnham for Camelot Cottons.
This quilt finished at 67" x 67"
It has approximately 657 pieces.
The colors in this line aren't quite as garish as they look in the picture, they're summer colors but softer, very appealing and soothing to the eye.
This project was the perfect change of pace, no curves. I was wanting a little curve break after finishing Gypsy Kisses and before starting on my QCR project. I think RLD is a wonderful summer project. Grab 16 fat quarters and a 1/2 yard of your favorite colors, throw in some background fabric and you're good to go. After seeing all the RLD pictures on Instagram I could not help myself, I had to make my own.
Today is the start of my Quick Curve Ruler Sew-along, are you joining me?
I've decided to make Metro Scope, it was a tough call but I really like this block, it's different.
For my fabric I'm going to use Persimmon by BasicGrey.
Lisa, at Stashmaster, and Nicole, at Sisters Choice, are sewing along, and each working on a pattern different from mine. A couple other friends are "thinking about it". Drop me a note if you're joining in. If you don't have a blog share your pictures and progress with any of us. If you do have a blog drop me a note so I can link to it and follow your progress. We don't have any rules, but if we get a few joiners we'll have a parade, how about Labor Day?
