Red Potpourri


From red 2.5 inch scraps - 4 Sprouts, 2 Depression Blocks, 1- 4 inch pinwheel. 


Also from 2.5 inch pieces - 2 Interlocking Chains. Pattern can be found at Quilter's Cache. 


And I made lots and lots of red pyramids from 2.5 inch scraps. 
They will eventually get sewn together on the diagonal - this is a pretty easy way to make a pyramid quilt - but now I have to figure out how many of these I need to sew together diagonally to make a big quilt. 

Visit ScrapHappy Saturday to see how others have used their red scraps this month..

Your reds are gorgeous in all their different combinations! I think red might be my favorite color! I'm going to have to go over to the Molly Flanders blog and see how those pyramids are made.

The sprouts are so pretty in red. You are using your red scraps well. Thanks for the Molly Flanders referral. I like the idea of doing it that way, putting it on my someday list.

What a good idea to treat those pyramids as lopsided HSTs!! I'm glad you posted that helpful link, as I've got a bunch of triangles cut for one of my own and hadn't determined the best way to assemble.

I am really loving those pyramids, Cathy. It's going to be awesome!

Sally Trude said...

Such a wonderful mix of patterns and fabrics. And now I think I will investigate those pyramids further.

I'd almost forgotten your sprouts! (And the ants in your plants are cracking me up!)

Pamela Arbour said...

Oh my you have been busy! Love all of your different blocks. Can't wait to see them in a quilt.

Something about red and white is just so nicely traditional. Those diamonds just sparkle.
