Heart of Gold
It's just a top right now
When finished this will go to my youngest brother who unexpectedly had a quadruple bypass last year shortly after Easter. It was unexpected because he's not overweight nor does he have high blood pressure. At any rate I hope this quilt reminds him to stay heart healthy and that I love him and his heart of gold.
I made these blocks (or I guess I would call them units instead) from 4.5 inch scraps last year as a Rainbow Scrap Challenge project. You know (if you are a regular blog reader) I usually don't lay out my quilts (on my floor - no design wall here) but instead sew blocks together randomly but this rainbow configuration I decided upon meant I had to lay blocks out and then, good golly, Miss Molly, I had to make sure I not only sewed them together correctly but sewed them together pointing in the right direction. Sheesh! It didn't all go so smoothly and I have to say I became reacquainted with my old seam ripper that has grown lazy but in the end I have a rainbow trail.
My inspiration was Kathy Doughty's (of Material Obsession) "Red Centre" quilt.
This is a UFO I hope to finish up this quarter. Since I now have a top I'm getting closer to that goal! I'm not sure what I will use for the backing and I hope there's enough rainbow fabric left for the binding.
