Red quilt

This red quilt I made for my daughter and her husband for Christmas. It's an easy quilt to make. It's from the Happy Hour book and it's called snap shot. I collected some red fabrics for awhile and then added the ones I already had on hand. I love making scrappy looking quilts. I quilted a panto pattern on it called Mimosa. Hopefully you can see it in the close up picture. These two pictures didn't turn out very well so I showed both of them. This is one of those quilts that when you are all finished with it you hate to let it go. lol .. oh wait all of my quilts are that way. It really is hard to give them away but I know I can't keep all of them. I know also that my daughter loves every quilt I make for her and she takes good care of them.

Mary from OZ, your pattern was mailed today. Let me know when it arrives or if you have any questions about it.
Time to go get some around the house stuff done.
Have a great night.
