Seeing Red!

Only 37 more blocks to go! lol I've got a running start on these blocks now, though. These will be sashed, quilt-as-you-go style, with white on white on the front. The back of each block is a white-on-white, well, the same fabric on the front, and will be sashed in red. I had thought about alternating white and red on the back to get a checkerboard effect, but with the time limit I have I thought I'd better stick to something simple. If I can keep everyone relatively healthy, I'd like to get this one finished and ready for binding by the weekend. I'll let you know..

Dad's still doing fine, thank You, Lord! Jim and I took him out for a bit yesterday and I think he enjoyed it. He even discussed news he'd seen on television. He loves to watch the news channels.

Time to wake up grumpy. I let him sleep today. :-) Actually, I'd better get in the shower or I'll be late for work. "I'd rather be quilting!" LOL

Oh, those are pretty! This will be a lovely quilt. Is the bobbin thread red? Glad to hear your dad is doing well and enjoyed his outing.
