Redwork Color 'n Say Quilt

I finished piecing the Color 'n Say quilt and I am pleased with it!


I am also pleased at how much more 'exact' my piecing was on this project. I am always wondering if my seams are staying consistent enough for the corners to match. There is one row that is a bit off, but not enough for me to worry about. Years down the road, I may look back and wonder at my low standards, but for now, I am making progress, so I am not going to worry about 'perfection'.
The top two rows...

This quilt measures 30" x 38", so I think that is big enough for a baby quilt and I think red is a good color for an 'in reserve' baby quilt.

The bottom two rows...

I will post the images to my Flikr pool and add a link in the next day or so. I originally used a copy machine and reduced the images to 40%. I have lost track of some of them from carrying them around while I was working on it, so I will post the rest of the images when I find them. Or, I will copy them again!

I'm pleased with it, too! Can I have it?? tee-hee I need to get over to the Atomic Sisters shop -- do you sell any of these gorgeous works of art on etsy?

Love love it!

I am thinking of doing some red work for my friend in France. If you have a good source for a nice cherry embroidery pattern let me know!

Remember there is charm in imperfection! I must say it looks perfect to me--but I'm no seamstress--just a seamstress wannabe! Love the vintage patterns! V.
