Design wall time...................

I spent a lot of time in the kitchen yesterday making 3 more batches of Chex Mix and another batch of fudge.  By evening I was ready to go to the design wall and put up all of the finished red crazy pieced blocks.  Then I made 5 more blocks but I haven't trimmed them yet.  The blocks will finish at 8".  I made a mostly blue crazy pieced quilt a few years ago.  You can see it here.  I'm thinking about doing a border like that one again on this one but I may try a couple other ideas too.

This kind of block from your gorgeous clean cuts and strings were the first thing that drew me to your blog many years ago - I still love them just as much as I did then Merry Christmas, my friend!!

I really like how you designed your border on the blue crazy quilt and can see it the same on your crazy red. But you gave yourself away when you said you have a couple more ideas. (*._.*).

MERRY, MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HEALTHY, HEATHY NEW YEAR !

You gave a 150% again this year, even with your set back with your pace maker surgery. Thank you for a fantastic year of quilting, photos of your gardens, all your blossoms, baking treats, and tutorial's. AND a new look to your blog, and pop up store, I know Vicki was the master behind that. You two are a great team !

I absolutely love your great red blocks! They’re so perfect especially for this time of year, but they’d never be wrong!

An ideal quilt to be working on over Christmas! You have a great collection of reds in your stash!

I like them both (but you KNOW red is best!), and the border on the blue does finish it off perfectly.
