Can you believe it is the last Saturday in February? Where has this month gone?
Without further to do here is my red Rainbow Scrap Project (RSP) block:-
I took this photo outside in my back garden today pegged onto my Abies Koreanna (Korean Fir) It’s a very sunny day today with clear blue skies, spring on it’s way hopefully? Well we can have hope can’t we, LOL, though I feel winter isn’t done with us yet.
Anyway, my little heart double four patch project isn’t as finished as I had hoped for today as this has been a busy week. I did get the little flange? on it and the outer final border but it has yet to be layered and quilted and the scalloped binding done. Hopefully, that will happen this coming week.

However, I spent yesterday helping a friend with her little red project. She had been to Belgium last year for a small break and had come back with a kit of 4 little embroidery blocks to stitch and some matching fabrics. She had embroidered the blocks and needed help with the setting and patchwork and quilting bit. The original quilt had a few more embroidery squares and the setting was of fabric squares between with a mitred border and had be quilted with the turning inside out method (not sure that is correct description but basically this needs no extra binding step)
Well I’ll shut up now and show you the picture I took yesterday.It had been stitched and pulled through at this stage but not quilted. I did quilt it very basically in the ditch before sending it home with friend to tie in the thread ends.
The layout was my idea since she just had the four blocks and two of the fabrics, however, you can see the whole redwork quilt here:-
This shop has some seriously cute embroidery patterns.
Lastly, but not least :))) Today I received some delicious Dupioni Silks from Valerie Online Pastimes sponsors of the Stash Manicure blog hosted by Madame Samm which I won way back in December’s Holiday Give Away. Here is a picture… notice the cute little angel which was also in the package. THANK YOU MADAME SAMM and VALERIE :-D
