Red, White, and Blue...and a Give Away...



Welcome and thank you for stopping by...I hope you are enjoying the Red, White and Blue Blog Hop.  Thank you Mdm Samm and Jane for organizing such a great blog hop....you ladies are amazing!!  Ready or not....here is my parade of blocks...

...my first block was designed by Konda Luckau for a quilt-along she hosted last fall.  It measures 12.5" .  The pattern is available on her blog Moose on the Porch.  It was block #1 of the quilt-along with 12 different star blocks by 12 different designers.  The fabric is Moda's Prairie Paisley II by Minick and Simpson.



...the next block combines a little piecing and a little embroidery.  As many of you know I love to embroider...it's so relaxing.  The embroidery in this 12.5" block is a free design at Bird Brain Designs.  The embroidered square is 5.5".  I'm not sure what to call it...kinda like a log cabin block and it's super easy.  The first border is finished at 1/2", followed by a 1" border and the outside border is finished at 2".  I will likely finish this as a mini quilt for my table topper or my wall hanger.

...the Granny Square has been showing up in a lot of blogs since the beginning of the year when Jolene shared her tutorial on her blog Blue Elephant.  As of Monday July 9th I had not made one but when I saw Lori Holt's 12.5" Great Granny Square...I had to make one and once I started I couldn't stop.  You can find it on her blog...Bee In My Bonnet.  I'm planning on making enough blocks to make it lap size....or until I run out of the background fabric.  I think I have enough fabric for 9 blocks and the sashing.  I'm using Prairie Paisley II.


Here is my first Great Granny Square....
...and my second
...and my third
...and my fourth
...and my fifth
...and I just finished my sixth and seventh block, sorry no pictures...)o:

Lastly I'd like to share two string quilts I recently finished...super easy and stress free.  These quilts were made using a 10.5" block.

Zuzan said...

Hi Pauline,
I am a new follower. Thank you for the references to the blocks. The off-centre embroidered star with hearts & different stitches is my favourite. Love the quilts (especially diagonal one). Cannot chooose with the granny squares. Then Minick & Simpson's Prairie Paisley II ( I liked the last best I think).
So it is an easy choice no.1 along with Auriful 50 wt thread please. Thank you for this generous giveaway,

Lisa Marie said...

Your blocks and quilts are beautiful. I especially like the RWB string quilt. This blog hop has me in the mood to make some RWB things so if I should be so lucky to win I would like the charms. I've been following your blog for a while. Thanks for the chance to win!

Sheila said...

Wow, I don't know where to start or to which block I like best, they are all beautiful. I am a new follower. I can't believe how may new blogs I have found via the RWB blog hop. I think I need to make a "Grannie Square" and a "String" quilt. But I also love to embroidery, so I would pick package #2. Thanks for sharing, have a great day!

Karen said...

Pauline, this is a stunning R, W & B display. I am amazed at how much you have made.
Love the stars in stars blocks. They are always a favourite and these are lovely.
And then there's all the granny squares. Just wonderful. Can't wait to see them together in a quilt top.
You can't beat the simplicity of the string quilts. They look so effective. Wow.
Of course I love the gorgeous little embroidered star block. Great idea.
Thank you for sharing all your amazing projects.

Thanks for the chance!

Gmama Jane said...

Oh Pauline, you know I've been a faithful follower for a LONG time! You have out-done yourself with your RWB creations! I'm quite impressed...and that string quilt looks so lovely. It would make a great cuddle quilt for watching TV/Movies. Believe it or not, I was visiting Lori Holt's blog yesterday and was impressed enough to join up with her Granny Square A-Long. I wasn't as prolific as you by making 7 blocks!!?? I only got my fabrics chosen and directions drawn out. I couldn't get my computer to print correctly so I drew the pattern out myself. Your RWB Granny squares are fantastic! I can't believe what a wonderful Give-Away you have!!?? I like both choices but my eyes bugged out when I saw that Halloween table runner....I love Halloween and have given away everything I've made. But I would KEEP that Table Runner IF I were to win!! Oh PLEASE let Lady Luck be on my side this time and have my name picked!!! I sound like a kid at Christmas!
You're a wonderful quilter Pauline.
Blessings
Gmama Jane

Tricia said...

Dear Pauline,
I really liked your blocks and really thinking that the Paisley Prairie II was very stunning with their variety. I was impressed with the string quilt too! I'm not sure if I brave enought to try that yet. I became follower #645 I believe and the decision on which would I like to win is very hard to figure out being a newbie quilter so on the slim chance that I did win I would actually let you pick for me as I would enjoy both the pattern and the charm pack in my quest of making mini quilts.
Sincerely,
Tricia

MoeWest said...

Thanks for sharing your collection of lovely blocks. I especially like the one with embroidery. Please put me in the draw for # 2. It would be a nice project to do while sitting out in the garden this summer. I've been following for a while.

sew.darn.quilt said...

What a spectacular array of eye candy.
I'm a new follower to your blog but we've been sewing "together" over at the Great Granny Along!
#1 would thrill me to pieces ;o)

KatieQ said...

I love your granny square blocks. I haven't tried to make them yet. I really like the embroidered log cabin style block. Thanks for offering the generous giveaway. I'm a new follower. I think I would prefer #1.

laurie in texas said...

Hi there! New follower here :) Would love to win #1 - I am making Granny Squares for QOV's and this would be perfect - I hate the cutting!! Thanks for a chance to win :D

bets said...

I am already a follower! I am partial to Halloween since our family has 3 birthdays on that day, but love the #1 charm pack so would like that one...could. Use some more red, white, and blue material! Thanks....

sandra said...

Wonderful job and you have inspired me to use my Prairie Paisley the original to make the great granny blocks. I bought the fabric years ago to make a quilt for my husband but I didn't like the pattern that went with the quilt so I have been looking for something else and after seeing yours I knew what I wanted to do. All of your other blocks are neat to. I am a follower.

Farm Quilter said...

Great blocks and quilts! Strings are so much fun, aren't they? I am a new follower and both your giveaways are fabulous! Thanks for being in the Blog Hop and for the giveaway!!!

Kate Brown said...

I am a new follower, I just found you on this hop. Either package would be a great prize but I like 1 a little bit better. Your blocks are wonderful!

Sharon Dawn said...

I love your blocks, especially the great-grannies! I am trying to resist making them...or wait until I finish a few projects. The Paisley Charm Pack would be my first choice, if I was lucky enough to be a winner!
Thanks for sharing!

Jacqueline said...

I am a new follower - found you on the hop. Love your work and must say you are very ambitious..

I would be happy with either prize because I quilt and do embroidery, but if I have to choose I would go with # 1.

Hello: I'm a new follower and love the rich print fabrics you found for your rwb blocks. Nice work! If I could have one of those two prizes, I think I'd like #2. I love embroidery. I hope you'll stop by and follow me, when you have time, too. Keep up the good work.

What great blocks. I especially like the string quilts. That's definitely on my bucket list. If I won the giveaway, my preference would be for the first option (fabric) but either would be great.
