Red club No. 3

Red club! I had a great afternoon today. Marg Low's red club at the patchwork apple. Our red club is a great group! I really enjoyed sewing with them today. Loz had her red club last Saturday, so I kind of knew what the small quilt was going to look like. (Go to her blog to check out the finished small quilt!) I got the initial square done and twenty squares of triangles. (I'm sure you don't know what I mean by that because reading it back I don't know what I mean!) Anyway. I have 40 more squares to make which should be a snap because Sara (the patchwork apple's teacher) showed us a really quick and easy way to make them. Even as I sewed the first 20 squares I had no idea how they would turn out. (Hey! Twenty squares from two pieces of fabric? Not gonna happen!) I just sewed, and sewed, and sewed, then looked at the sewing. Thought for a moment. Then realised that it was entirely possible that 20 squares would emerge once I had cut along the pencil marks.

Loz and I are off to Pt Pirie this weekend to a class with Gail Pan and Natalie Ross. I think I have all the luck! I will report back on my excellent weekend soon!

I love red. Good quilt shops are hard to find. There is a new one opening near me in September - I have very high hopes.

I knew what you meant about 20 squares of triangles. Your red quilt looks good, I must stop looking at other quilts, I don't need to start (or even think about starting) another quilt.
