Goodness, post #300! I'll have to think about a giveaway. And, I am approaching my 4-year anniversary of blogging! So stay tuned.
Today: a scan of most of a 9 inch block that I am doing for the Just Takes 2 project. This red is more of a tomato color. I think you can see that this is the Jacob's Ladder block (it goes by other names too). Red and white blocks look so wonderful don't they? I see why this project is so popular, and why red and white quilts were popular in the past.
Quick note: Instead of throwing this red fabric in the washer with other dark fabrics, I soaked it in the sink in hot water and soap - and the dye ran! I soaked and rinsed until the water was clear. But, it makes me wonder about other red fabrics I have purchased...
I am joining up with Rednesday at It's a very Cherry World!
