Okay, I'm done now!

First it was this:

Simple Pincushion - Front

Then, it was these:

5 Pleated Pincushions

And, for some reason, I couldn't get that block out of my mind, so I made these Friday and Saturday:

Pleated Blocks

(There were a few more, but I thought 9 made a prettier picture.  LOL)  Then, on Sunday, I sewed them all together and made this:

"Classic Simplicity"

I just love how they look sewn all together, don't you?

!/4 inch log cabin blocks

Look at the texture.......wow!  BUT, it's time to move on......so today, I will make two pincushions.  One for my LQS to put all those cute pin toppers into for sale, and a commission pincushion.  After that, I will start cutting fabric for the (yet to be written) new lap quilt pattern.  So, hopefully, you will be seeing that next.  Pray I don't screw it up.  I'd hate to re-order all that fabric!  E-gads!!  I hope you will be having fun sewing this week too!!!!!!

I love it! I really like the look of the red against the white. I think I might have to try doing something with white as the background with just pops of color. I like that effect.

ooooohhh I love this quilt! The graphic nature of the red and white and the texture the log cabin piecing gives to the white fabric makes it so stunning! The two rows of white straight stitching in the border work really well. Nice very nice!

This is a very arresting design. It just sucked me in to look at the texture and the dramatic color jolts. Love it!

First don't be to harsh on Madamesam because she told all the quilters to check out your blog. I love your color play and the reds and whites items. Did you enter the red and white quilt exhibit in New York? Just google Red and White Quilt Show and click the link. It is simply beautiful. Love your's and madamesaom blog
