    you have your organization techniques down to a science, Patrice! I usually think of myself as in a minority of ppl that love red, but so many on here said they did. Of course, I do love some of everything. You should see my closet. I line my clothes up, depending on color of tops, pants underneath, so when you look in, all color coordinated.
    hubby thinks my habits are...not sure. He teases me a lot, but he knows it works for me. I rotate laundry when I put it away. i tell him, my funny ways are the reason he walks around longer without holes in his socks and undies, the sheets and towels, etc. last longer.......for me quilting spills into all areas of life. yeah, quilt, nap, quilt some more....ahhhh, the good life! :wink:

    Wow! Not MY choice of colors, but it definitely works. Please show it when you have it quilted.

    Patrice, your quilt is just lovely. I see the Chisholm Trail block, but what is the name of the second block you used?

    wow, that's a remarkable quilt. I have never seen that design, I don't think. it's very pretty.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Oh, how pretty. You did a great job with your color choices. It gives your quilt wonderful movement. It's going to be beautiful with the dark binding. Just like framing a picture.

    Found both blocks, the Chisholm Trails block http://www.quilterscache.com/C/ChisholmTrailBlock.html and the Plaited Block http://www.quilterscache.com/P/PlaitedBlockBlock.html
    What a great combination!!! Such an inspiration to us all.

    Thanks, Dollyo. I swear I looked up "plaits" in Quilter's Cache, but I obviously did a poor job at it. The combination of the two really does make a great looking quilt.

    Just lovely! I sure like your use of the different shades of red. I would imagine that was a bit of a challenge and caused you to stay focused at all times. Beautiful result!
