Another red and green quilt

There's not a lot of sewing going on at Quiltsalott this week so I'll show you a quilt I finished last year in the red and green. You'll probably recognise this quilt if you are a fan of Piece O' Cake designs. It's in their book Flowering Favourites which is now out of print You may be able to pick it up somewhere. I hand quilted this in a basic grid design, it has a cotton batting so it has that lovely texture I love. You can click on the photo to get a closer look.
This is all I managed on the machine this week, three more nearly insane blocks, #'s 12, 15 and 16
A big thanks to Kathie who told people about me and also to those who visited and left some very kind comments. I appreciate it! Also thanks to other bloggers who have been so helpful to me when I've needed it, I have some basic computer skills and this is still a learning process for me.

Have a great weekend, Janet

That's a gorgeous quilt! You can be very proud of it.
Those little blocks are so cute, but I can totally see why they're called insane! The red and white is so fresh, it will be good to keep an eye on your progress...
Cheers!

I have that book!
and have always loved that quilt, I doubt I will ever make it so when you get tired of yours you know where to send it too! I promise to give it a good home!
