RSC 15: week 28: Red lanterns!

The Rainbow Scrap Challenge is hosted by Angela at Soscrappy, who gives a different colour each month and many quilters concentrate on using that colour for the whole month. Some make blocks of  their own choosing, but Angela also publishes block patterns to use in a sampler quilt. This month's colour is red

I have made two red blocks in the last week, and part of one alternate block.

Lantern and Lantern Light

I'm linking up to 
RSC 15

 Hop over there and see what else has been happening this week.

In addition, I've been working on my sampler for the on-line basic crazy quilting course given by Kathy Shaw.

I have learnt a lot in less than two weeks. The course is very intensive and Kathy explains the principles of crazy quilting and the practical techniques very well. I have most of the stitching done now, and then it will be time for ribbon embroidery and beading. I can't wait!

Happy sewing
