Red and White challenge.......

Our guild year has ended (we don't meet through the summer) and one of the traditional events at the May meeting is to reveal the annual challenge. I was in charge of the challenge this year so I decided to let it serve two purposes; one, to challenge guild members and two, to get the red and white quilt I've always wanted to make but never took the time to do it.

 So here it is. This is Bonnie Hunter's Pineapple Blossom pattern. I dug into my reds and started cutting 2-inch strips. For those of you that follow my blog, this is the quilt that created the tendinitis issues last fall. I love it!!!! Red is my favorite color and I love how all of the different fabrics and shades go together. Thank you all who convinced me to just cut and not worry about pinky-reds and maroony-reds, etc. I really love the triangle border made with the bonus triangles ala Bonnie's method.

 I seriously see me doing one of these with my greens, but not for a while. Happy Mother's Day!
