Red and Green
I really love red and green together. It feels so fresh and crisp. I know it says "Christmas" but to me it is a lovely combination. This is a 3 Lilies block that I now want to make an entire quilt with! It is not sewn together because I still have to applique the stems.
The blocks are fun and a bit intense. They are not quick and fast though not hard, you just need patience. That block in the bottom left hand corner took an entire day! Lots of half square triangles!
I am using lots of different shades of green and red and a white background, not cream or off white.
I do like the sprinkling of polka dots throughout the blocks.
This is supposed to be done as a block of the month. I am just doing it at my own pace. I am also using up my stash as I have plenty to work with!
This was a page turner! It also gave me a lot of anxiety about both of the main characters. I think that makes it a win!
