WIP – Red & Blue Quilt

My latest Work In Progress (WIP) is this red and blue quilt that I’m making for one of my nephews.  Again, if you are reading this, act surprised when you get this quilt!


I used the last of my navy blue fabric, most of my medium and light blue and all of the red I had in the house for this soon-to-be Queen Sized quilt.  I’m using HST (half-square triangles) which usually go together quickly but for some reason this quilt is taking a bit longer than expected.  Maybe because I’ve changed the layout so many times.  I tried a chevron pattern and a diagonal stripe pattern but it was missing something so I settled on this layout.


I’m hoping to finish this quilt later next week.  For now, I have to whip up some Christmas themed placemats and napkins that will be auctioned off at a local church charity.  I’m using some of my new fabric that I bought at Creativ Festival in Toronto last weekend.  Isn’t it yummy?  Yes, I know some of it isn’t Christmas-y but I just HAD to have it!  I realized I have a bit of a problem…

    Problem??? I don’t detect a problem!!!! (spoken by one who’s stash threatens avalanche at any moment!!! ROFL!!!!!) Your nephew’s quilt is going to be awesome…..am totally in love! This is why, as quilters, we have so many different things going at once!! Some take a lot of time and things “come up” during that time frame, so we put the one aside in favor of the current ‘need’. Hugs……………………….

  2. So very true! I used to think i had ADD, now I realize I’m just like all the other quilters out there, jumping from one project to the next. Thanks Doreen!
