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.

  22. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  23. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  24. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  115. 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

  116. 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

  125. 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.

  128. 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!
