Color it red blog hop


Welcome to the first day of the color it red blog hop.   This blog hop is hosted by Carol at

When this blog hop was first announced I knew exactly what I was going to do.   I have had this quilt ready for quilting for some time now, and thought it would be perfect.

Some of the ruler quilting I am doing. 

Well, life happens.  Work happens. And I was putting in extra time at work.

I seriously thought about just emailing Carol and telling her I just couldn't do it.  Then I remembered these heart blocks I had made.

 Original plan was to make a wall hanging and machine quilt.  Well, for some strange reason hubby and I had been discussing when we were going to remodel the upstairs.  Some rooms had new carpeting in about 22 years ago, and some have not been upgraded in the 25 years we have lived here.  We ended up going to a home show and because hubby had today off he scheduled a home energy audit.  Dang.  Better get rid of stuff.  I had to ban myself from the sewing room to get things done.

So I decided to hand quilt this.  I worked on it every chance I got.  I had hoped to get binding on it yesterday, but to no avail.  But it will be done this week.

This pattern is a free pattern from Allison at please check out her site as she has some very cute patterns.

As for the dejunking of rooms, closets, etc. I am down to 2 rooms.  1 is my sewing room and 1 is the file/office room, which I currently have some sewing and quilting stuff in.   My sewing room was remodeled about 5 years ago, but I thought if I need to put other things in there, I really only want to organize it once.

So Carol I am sorry I did not get completely finished.  I am really trying to be more organized.  Organization is not my strong point.

I have started working on this one.  I decided feathers on the heart would be fun. Currently my feathers are drawn in and I will start quilting today at lunch time.

Just a quick recap:

Pattern is from Cluck Cluck Sew
Quilting was done by hand with no markings.  I just free handed it all.
Please visit these lovely bloggers throughout this week.  They always have something fun and inspiring to share.
