Can't Get Enough of Red These Days

Remember those hearts from earlier this month? I am working on another wall-hanging as a little wedding gift (unfortunately I wasn't able to go to a friend's wedding in Romania last weekend). I found the idea for a confetti quilt on Quilting Bebbs' blog and will combine it with a couple of the hearts and some lettering a la Tonya. My confetti squares are 4.5" unfinished.

I've never made blocks by cutting squares (below) and then swapping fabrics to make a variety of blocks, but thought it was about time to give it a try. I think I liked it enough to try it again.

I like them! The reds look pinky in the photo0 - very nice.

Thanks for the email, I popped over here and love that idea for a block and the colours look great(still!) as well! Tracey

Love 'em. I've had the pink and red combination stuck in my brain as well. The hexagons are great too. You could try mixing them with other kinds of blocks...

I loved the triangles when I saw them on Quilting Bebb's blog and now here they are again! I love it! And it is so perfect with the hearts and some Tonya's letters! This is going to be wonderful!

It is so fun to see bits of different blogs show up in a quilt! there is a quilt study paper in there somewhere!
