I Was Wrong…..


When I spread out the Sally's quilt at the store last night I discovered a third red print used in the triangles setting the blocks on point. You'll see when I upload the full shots of the quilt the blocks with the second and third red prints are on the outside edges of the quilt. Did she run out of fabric? Did she decide to make the quilt larger? So many questions....

It's a darling, tiny, red, white and black stripe. Now I'll be on a search through my stash to find a piece matching the two red prints I have set aside if I decide to make the quilt in it's original colors.

We're down to the last two blocks. This one is my Traverse City cherry tree and I saved it until today. Enjoy!

Sally Post Floral Sampler Block 35

PS. I've corrected the Midget Block 72 pattern. I started to type seventeenth and must have had an attack on my "meno brain" and it read seventh. The block is in the 17th row not the 7th.

    wow….I like it!! It reminds me of the print I choose to reproduce a spider web quilt my great grandmother made in the early 1900’s….the original edge of each web was really cute.It was
    black with tiny closed up red umbrellas. Some of the fabric within the quilt was a tiny pink poka dot and also quite a bit of red poka on the borders and sashings. There must have been a bleach or??? to make the dots on those old fabrics because the fabric is there but the “dots” are like your “Sally Post”, missing in action. I love it just the same…… happy birthday early Gayle….this is finishing up just in the nick of time!! I am off on saturday to spend a week looking after my grandsons (o:
