Must be crazy

I DID have one Simply red quilt top done....
I must be crazy.
I Hacked it up. as I was so NOT inspired... I cut it into blocks... and will start again, I think I know now what i want from these scrappy reds... Stay tuned!

To many shadows outside, I couldn't get a decent shot.... we have sun! yippeee!I am not complaining.

Before I cut up that above, quilt top, I had an idea with flying geese,
totally unrelated to the red quilt...
Then when i saw the red strips hanging next to them,
it sort of HIT ME OVER THE HEAD, what i should do with them.

I also gave up making the X-mas quilt any larger. It will make a great lap quilt, and finished up my X-mas scraps for the backing...
I also added a label sewn directly into the quilt back, I wrote out the label leaving room for whomever gets it for a X-mas gift!
(I'm so bad at labels that this sort of seemed the most clever thing for me to do!)

I hope my dog Kia is not trying to tell me something about this quilt by sitting on it....

Thats enough trouble for one day. Gotta go enjoy this beauty of a day.


  1. I'm loving this scrappy red quilt. Such fun watching it develop. I would really like to know how to do a quilt label, I's love you to show that part, Kath in England

  2. Actually I LOVE the cut up quilt top. I think you'll have great inspiration on how to put them back together. You were brave doing that!

  3. Will be interesting to see where you go with this, love the colors ... TTFN ~Marydon

  4. When inspiration hits - don't fight it. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

  5. I love it! It sounds like something I would do. Oh wait I have done that and it was FUN! Looks like you are in the zone. Happy sewing my friend!

  6. crazy is good! that's what i tell myself anyway. :) i look forward to seeing what you do with your quilt pieces. i'm loving the flying geese next to the red! i'd love to watch you in action some day. it would be so very interesting to see your process.

  7. I love your flying geese. I actually want to make a whole quilt like that one day.

  8. Love your red blocks! They are really AWESOME!

  9. Those red blocks are perfect! I wish I could do that with some of my quilt projects sometimes!

  10. Your red quilts have inspired me - reminded me how much I love red quilts - so I'm now planning another one - perhaps I'll start it this weekend. :)

    Can't wait to see what you do with this one...

  11. The red cut up quilt is just gorgeous! I love it. I can't wait to see what your idea is for this in the future.

  12. Crazy clearly equals creative! Love the way things take you, can't wait to see where it goes from here. Flying geese are great, I've got so much inspiration from you, I'm chompping at the bit to be sewing again soon, and my own red collection is growing in anticipation. Thank you V :o)
