One block and other sewing....

I spent some time looking through a box of flannel scraps for more choices for the Rattlesnake blocks.  I found 2 similar reds.  I didn't have quite enough of one so used one piece of the other and even pieced 2 smaller pieces to make the last red piece at the top left.  I don't want this quilt to look too planned or perfect.  I would prefer it have a few blocks like this.
I only had time to make one block because it was time to sew some more preemie gowns for church sewing circle today.  There are 20 here which will be parts of 10 layettes.  They want 2 gowns in the extra small and small layettes and one gown in the medium and large size layettes.

Rattlesnake is such a gorgeous pattern. Spectacular!
I don't mind the verification, it is necessary. No apology needed for me!

I've tried paper piecing once or twice, and just don't have the patience for it. Hats off to you!

The rattlesnake blocks are coming along! I like the mix of reds and that more unplanned look you spoke of.

I had to enlarge the photo to really see the two different fabrics.

What thread do you use on those little gowns ? The hospital staff is so very blessed to have you ladies making these layettes for their little preemies.

Nice red rattlesnake block :D
The little preemie gowns are so sweet. What a labor of love. You and your generous church sewing circle give so much of your time and talents.

You are a prolific sewer! The little gowns are sweet!
I like that the blocks are not all perfect too. That's how a quilt should be I think.

Hi Wanda,
I LOVE the rattlesnake blocks. If you ever want to sell the pattern once you are done...

Did you get any of that heavy snow that came thru last week? I made it into work, but there were many, many cancelations, so that meant "catch-up" time for me.

Keep warm!

The little gowns are so cute, how generous you and your group are with all your time and effort, amazing! As for your rattlesnakes, I am LOVING these blocks. Are you finding the flannel/homespun a bit challenging for the outsides of the block?

Sweet gowns. If you do not understand how small a preemie is, those look like what we called 'diaper shirts' in the 60's!

I like the mixed reds (but my philosophy is the more fabrics, the better). Going to be a lovely quilt, but those blocks look time intensive!

Your rattlesnakes are looking great!

I had to really look to see the difference in the two reds. They work together beautifully!

What a generous helping hand you are - those wee gowns are very cute!
