Red Sky at Night

      If you've followed me on this blog and Instagram, you've probably seen my posts from January 2015 thru November 2015 of my "Red Sky at Night " blocks that I was sewing along weekly with Jodi Godfrey from Tales of Cloth Blog.  

       Every Monday she did a block that she found online and even shared the history of the name etc.  I like that kind of stuff so I was anxious to follow along each week.  Jodi did her blocks in solid red and white and if I remember correctly, she was making the quilt for her mom's birthday.  Feel free to read all about them.

I got this unit sewn and up on the design wall, and then added the bottom right corner (oops, no picture) and realized I only had 1 of the original blocks left so I had to make more.

I made the above 6 and combined them with the 1 leftover and voile!  My quilt is done!!!

It sure doesn't look like it but it measures 86 x 86 and barely fits on the floorspace.
I ordered a backing for it so when that arrives it will go right out the door to my favorite quilter!

I hope you are all enjoying your Memorial Day and remembering the reason for this holiday, and Happy 100th Birthday to my all time favorite president, John F Kennedy.....It's crazy realizing that he's been gone soooo long and that he'd have been 100 today!
