Seeing red

First-  thanks for the suggestions on a Birthday present for DAve. Another cat is by far MY favourite. But I don’t think he’ll go for it. Our city has a by-law of no more than four pets per household, and he’s always keen to remind me (usually when I’m looking at a cute critter) that we are at our legal limit. Now if we lived in the country….

Alas… on to today’s post…

Red is my second favourite colour, so it was pure joy to put together the 11 red blocks for Rainbow in the Dark.


This is not the layout for them – though it does have the wheels turning for another log cabin quilt!


This is how all those red blocks will look in the quilt. As you can see (thanks to scale from the design bed), this is going to be a good-sized quilt. I want it big enough that my friend can snuggle up with his wife and young daughter under it.

Now there’s just 11 purple blocks left (purple is my fourth favourite colour!). I’m on vacation next week, and I think finishing the top is going to be my priority project. Then I can quilt it an get it off to my friend in the next couple weeks.

  1. That quilt is going to be amazing! I love how the colors are looking.
    Another cat is a GREAT idea. Maybe you need to move to the country. We are only allowed three animals per household here. Or up to 6 chickens in town!


  2. I don’t know if we have rules on the number of pets or not. In Orlando, it was 3, I think. But, I know people who had more.

    That quilt is going to be a lovely gift for your friend.

    The quilt is going to be beautiful and such a special gift. I love the layout where the black logs formed a square. I am sure it’s just a matter of time until you do something with a design like that.
