Entry number 3.....


I am really loving this "getting things done that you meant to finish" club! Otherwise known as the Charming Girls Quilt Club! I was worried that I had bitten off more than I could chew when I decided to do not one, but 2 quilts with the tops not even finished! But today is the 19th, and I'll take 2 days to pin and then haul the monster sewing machine up and knock out these tops with a simple meander stitch on both

My finished 9 patch quilt using swap blocks from myself and Carol. I l-o-v-e this quilt! Sorry but that red is just fabulous...good choice Wendy! I copied Wendy as she used red first. I almost switched to cheddar, but the red just won out!
I think either next month or the following one I'll make my quilt using the Paducah 9 patch blocks we also swapped. Hope you like it.

Last line of your post reads "hope you like it" I think I can speak to all who come to your blog and see it...WE LOVE IT! I must agree that the RED is far better than a cheddar. (it matches my home)

Carol said...

OMG I love "our" quilt! The red is just awesome. I think I'll be using red too...why mess with something so wonderful!

Karen said...

No doubt about it. The red was a good choice. I would love to make a quilt like this.

Love the red

Sharon said...

You are right, the red really sings in this top. It was an excellent choice, thanks for sharing the finished top.

Judy I love your quilt. Wendy knows how to pick the colors doesnt she? But you just cant go wrong with RED!!

Dixie said...

This quilt is absolutely fabulous, Judy! Just love it. Way to go on the finish - I really want to make this one. Did you use a mottled red? Its really great.

Allie said...

I love this sooooooo much! The red background is perfect, just perfect.

Kim said...

The RED QUILT, love it, glad you didn't use cheddar, although I do enjoy a good cheddar, tee hee. Really a gorgeous quilt, Judy!

Darlene said...

I'm glad you and Carol liked Wendy's and my quilt so much that you chose to swap blocks too. I remember how excited Wendy was when I asked her to swap with me - swapping those blocks with her is a memory that will stay with me forever.

I opted to use a bubblegum pink as my alternate blocks and quite happy with the results, too.

Yours is awesome!

This is so awesome! Isn't this quilt club (as my grandkids say) the bomb?

Wendy said...

I'm so glad you went with the red, it's really a stunning quilt. I love mine so much. A local quilt group also want to make one the same. Darlene and I have so many good memories with this quilt.
