Oct.3  Red embroidered blocks

I finally decided on the layout of the quilt that is to show off the red cross stitch blocks. At first I was going to put a sashing between them with a corner block. It didn’t make the blocks pop. So I did more searching for ideas. This picture gave me that light bulb moment.

So I started working on the block cuts and measurements. After two trial blocks I finally got the measurements spot on.

I started out with this color but soon discovered that I wasn’t going to have enough.

I need 75 blocks to complete this top, I now only have 17 done.

The cutting is all done and ready for sewing.

Some of the blocks laid out so you see the design better..

And oops, a blooper 😦

Off to find the seam ripper..😄
