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  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.
