New Quilt Top

I really don’t need to start another project but a red and green applique quilt is so hard for me to resist.  I debated back and forth on whether or not to do this and you guessed it, I’m in.  These are blocks offered by Sentimental Stitches, 3 or 4 each month as a free download.  What’s better than a red and green applique quilt?  One that has bits of yellow in the blocks.  So this afternoon I prepped the first three blocks.  I am using Kona natural for my background.  I am already in love with this quilt.

Yesterday I was able to prep the first three blocks for stitching.  Blocks 1 and 2 are already needle turned.  Block three is ready to stitch.  These will finish at 10″ square.  I need to add the 4 corner orange peel applique pieces to the blocks.  Need to dig through my stash to find a civil war red big enough to do all 64 blocks.

The free download is from http://www.sentimentalstitches.net.  These are for January and will only be available through the end of the month.  The quilt top is The 1857 Album Quilt.  Did I already mention that I love these types of quilts.  Thanks Gay Bomers for doing this pattern.
