A Few More Red & White Blocks

Here's another with the help of Quilter's Cache - Northern Lights (I liked the name), one more with the leftover flying geese (bottom left), and one with the leftover HSTs (bottom right):


I made mini versions of these, too. I have two browns from the same Wuthering Heights line and will make them into a little wall hanging eventually.


If you would like to make an 8" (finished) red and white block (or two or three or four....) for Clare's Quilts for Leukemia project, head on over to her blog, Dordogne Quilter.

One more fun red picture to end this post - yesterday I bought 10 liters of lingonberries. I was quite a sight getting them home on my bike! In case you haven't had lingonberries, they are a lot like cranberries, just smaller and they grow on low bushes, not in bogs. I'll freeze most of them and probably make a little jam.

Love the red and whites -- they look great.

Hmm... I gotta try those lingonberries. How do you use the whole ones that you freeze?

Thank-you so very much for telling the blogger world about Quilts for Leukemia. I am also thankful because I did not know about this project.

2 1/2 years ago I was diagnosed with Myelodysplactic Syndromes. The type I have is Refractory Anaemia With Escess Blasts.

I am going to join this project and will contact Clare at Dordogne Quilter Blog after posting here.

I LOVE the red and white! I want to make a red and white quilt, but I can't decide which pattern and/or block to use. I'll probably just end up doing a nine-patch, but I especially love the ones you've done that are on the far left in the picture-top and bottom!
