Back to the Stash

I dove back into my stash and found some fabrics to replace two of my least favorite blocks in my red and white project.  I’m liking it better now.  I’ll let it remain on the design wall a while so I can think about it some more.

Time to Start Tweaking

I think this is enough red and white blocks for a small throw quilt, and I’ve begun playing with layouts.  This is not the final and there are still a couple of blocks I may want to replace with different fabrics, but I will sleep on it tonight.  It's amazing how looking at a photograph of a quilt makes trouble areas easier to spot.

I found this red and white print that may work for a border.

We had three hard freezes at the beginning of the week.  The high today was 40 plus degrees warmer than the highs Monday and Tuesday.  The wildflowers should be okay despite the freezes, but it remains to be seen if the peach crop will survive.  During an outing last week, we saw many orchards already in bloom.
