Redwork in Progress

I’m doing some redwork embroidery for a quilt when I’m sitting around watching TV. Here’s a look at a few of the blocks which are all worked on bleached muslin and there’s a lot more to do:

Sampler quilt mistake

I took one look at my last post and found out that block number five needs to be re-pieced.  Look at the block and see if you can find my mistake!!

Can’t see the mistake–it’s supposed to be a mirror image of this block number 6 except for the color changes.

Sampler Quilt 2012_2013 (10)

The mistake is in the bottom row and the outer blocks need to be turned.  I’m so glad I did the post so I could find the mistake before I started putting the quilt blocks together!!

Sampler quilt beginnings

I’ve set a goal for the year of completing a king-sized sampler quilt in burgundy as the primary color.  I started it yesterday and completed six 10 inch blocks.  Now, I just have to keep it up and hopefully have all of the 200+ blocks completed in three months, I hope!!  I thought I would share the blocks as I go along so this will be a continuing post.  Here’s the first six:

I think this is a pretty good start and if I 12 weeks to complete 200 blocks, that means I have to complete about 17 blocks a week, which works out to three a day for the next three months.  WOW!  Maybe I’d better rethink this time limit and make it six months instead of three.  Oh well, I will get it done and I will post as I go.  Wish me luck!!  Did I tell you I also have three baby quilts to start and finish by JUNE 2013!!!!!!!
