Monday Making

This week I pulled out some red and cream scraps.
The colors are seasonal and 
the scrap basket was calling my NAME!!!

I almost added green...
but these blocks seemed to be content as they were! 

 The applique was an afterthought.
The circles are from my can of leftovers.
I think they were just WAITING for this quilt to come along!!!

this is what I THOUGHT I was making....
A nice smallish baby quilt.

But...
this quilt had other plans!

I"ll need to make a few blocks
because now that the applique is in process...
I'm thinking the quilt needs to get even bigger!!!!

This quilt is being made using the "mushroom effect"!!!
:)

What are YOU making this week???

  2. I like this one very much. Sometimes quilts just take on a life of their own. My sewing this week is all secret so I can't share, shame.

  3. Your applique is perfect for this growing quilt. This week, I'm finishing the binding on a Christmas quilt.

  16. Mushroom effect? Is it different from snowball effect? In any case, those raspberry cream swirls are delicious. I am so looking forward to your next step.
