Red Pepper

This is a scrap quilt I've been working on for some time. I do a little then set it aside and do more and then I pick it up again like I did yesterday. It's on my 2011 UFO list so I need to start "finishing" not setting it aside.

I've temporarily named this monster "Red Pepper" because I kind of stole the idea from the Red Pepper blog and a quilt she did last year. I may have to keep the name and make a label with a red pepper on it :)

All of the fabric has come from my stash of scraps and lemme tell you, this girl does NOT like working with 2 inch squares. I find them too small and unlike at least a 3 or 3.5 incher, they just get wonky to me. The blocks that are the little squares take 100 2 inchers to make up, so you can figure out i'm doing a lot of "holy crapping" while I'm connecting them all :)
It will be approximately 75 x 75 without borders so I'm thinking that will be borders for this one!!!

I really love quilts like this. I think I bought a pattern like this as a matter of fact. I also don't think you need a border.

It's looking pretty Peggy. It's hard to be Perfect Peg with little squares like that, huh? :o) You can't see wonky from far away and even if you can, do like they say and "quilt the heck out of it".

Funny post, Peg, but I love this kind of block and quilt!

Oh, my gosh! I love it! I agree with Liz--nothing looks wonky from here! : )
