Red + White Progress

Here is a quick progress picture of a quilt I've been working on over the past few months
 (I wanted to show you some progress before I show you the finish.) 

Working on the Layout...
  
These are the blocks for my Red + White Friendship Sampler, made with the help of the lovely ladies in my local quilt club.   

 Last year our club celebrated it's 10th Anniversary (I've been in 4 yrs).  In honor of that big milestone we decided to help each other make a "friendship" quilt.  Each of us got to pick our own color scheme, while block designs were left up to each member's talents/discretion.  

I'm working on the finishing touches so it will be ready for the big reveal. 
(Your waiting on pins and needles, huh??)

Two color quilts are so classic. I love your set of blocks and can't wait to see what you make from them.

It's beautiful, the simplicity of the colour scheme shows the blocks off well.

Your red & white quilt is so pretty! How fun to have a sampler made up of blocks from your local guild. At the school where I teach we started a small sewing club after school and have been teaching the girls to hand piece and quilt. We just finished 9-patch doll quilt samplers that we swapped blocks on. They turned out really sweet for their first little quilts.
