Ruby red lips.......

Yesterday the apprentice started playing with placement for this flannel..........
Bliss by Bonnie and Camille - such a bright fresh range of flannels.............
Started Nundle retreat 2011................it was a second quilt for the weekend..............I got two rows sewn together.........
there it stopped and got packed into a box.........
So the apprentice niece got it all on the wall...........
then she started sewing it together..............she did so well.......she joined all the blocks into rows and I helped joining the rows and let me tell you it was a struggle getting bumpy chenille and flannel thru the machine............
the chenille was a nightmare sewing wise but it adds great texture to the quilt with the flannel.............
One happy girl...........
now how to quilt it????
We added the narrow border of flannel to tame the red chenille edges...............
was a little challenging to take the photos as  it was windy outside............

It looked like a blood bath in the Chookshed with red everywhere............all cleaned up now and onto another project............

The mystery box no 7 i'll take some pics next and show you...............it's sort of done...........i'm undecided about the borders that I wanted but it did not have...............
Catch you later.......

  7. The red chenille is just gorgeous to look at, but glad I didn't have to sew it! Great result, but think it might be best sent to the long arm quilter or tied!
