Red Letter Day Quilt Finish
Red Letter Day quilt that she designed based on a traditional block. Mine is (as per usual) not exactly like the original, I made mine a bit larger in a 4 x 4 layout instead of a 3 x 3 layout. I also did not do the reverse block, but went for a rainbow layout instead.
I have to admit, I'm quite pleased with this quilt, I used all fabrics from our shop Polka Dot Tea, in particular the Japanese Kei florals and the Cotton Couture in Bright White. This quilt is the perfect way to welcome in Spring. I have to admit, I am probably one of the very few that is sad when winter comes to an end. Our winters here are short and sweet and I enjoy the cosy warm fires and the short days where my husband can't work the late hours in the dark. To be honest though, I love every season and whatever season I am in I usually think is the best. Sort of like the best quilt is the one just finished!
In case any one was wondering, the class with Camille Roskelley was great, she taught us a few tricks to sewing more efficiently and quicker and basically was just a lot of fun to be around. We had a good group and I would recommend a class with her.
