Color It Red Blog Hop - Red Dutch Doors from Creatin' in the Sticks

the first day of the
Color It Red Blog Hop.

I'm happy to kick things off with
Red Dutch Doors Quilt.

Carol of Just Let Me Quilt invited bloggers to make a project with red in it.
That was it, just make something with red in it.
Thank you, Carol, for inviting me to join this super fun blog hop!

Sometimes the simplest rules can cause me such dilemmas. 
There are so many things I think of when I think of a way to use "red".

My Chiefs are red...
BUT, I know, I know, I ...

More Orange Sewing from Romany Quilting

I have to say that Orange is not one of my favourite colours, and I don't have a great deal of it.   But as I’m joining in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge again this year, orange is February's colour.  And it doesn’t look too bad used in my chosen blocks.  These three orange butterflies look very pretty, and are sure to flit across my butterfly quilt quite nicely when all their different coloured friends have been stitched.

Three orange butterflies

And I’m really pleased with how the checkerboard blocks turned out, a nice easy block to ...

Michael Miller Fabrics Garden Pindot collection and made framed blocks.

Colour Point Cats from Romany Quilting

With the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2020 underway, I decided to make fairly simple blocks for two charity (donation) quilts, and then, although I really should know better, to work on something for me.  This third pattern involves both curved piecing and foundation piecing – would it all prove too much, I wondered? Firstly, I had to take the pattern down to Warehouse Stationery to get multiple copies made.  The shop was really busy, it was just before the schools opened after the long summer break, and was full of harried looking parents and school kids getting their stationery requirements for the ...

Previously Backlogged Jobs - A link up from Patterns by Jen

Anyone have a stack of WIPs (Works in progress)?

You don't need to answer that. I think most of us have projects we have put off, gifts that didn't get done in time so they were put away, a frustrating pattern, a project with fabrics we ended up not liking.

Two years ago I tried to get caught up on the BOM projects that I had been putting off from my LQS. I wanted to make an extra block each month to catch up. Well, that didn't last very long. In keeping with my strive to be ...

Getting Ready for My Valentine… from Made By Marney

It’s time to dig out my Valentine pillows. I’m looking forward to some chocolate and flowers! Right?

This is a Valentine doggie block I designed in 2019.


This cutie I designed this year…


Wouldn’t these blocks make cute pillows or potholders? I’m going to try to sew them up before Valentine’s Day.

Both patterns can be found in my ETSY SHOP. I’d love to see what you can create using these sweet pups.

Going Green from Romany Quilting

This is my second year of taking part in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, organised by Angela of Sew Scrappy.  I really enjoyed my inaugural year so I’m raring to go again.  The only problem is deciding what to make from all the designs and patterns I have printed off!  Finally, the decision has been made, I’ve been looking through my scraps, and some blocks have been sewn.

The colour chosen for January is light/bright green.  First I made some checkerboard blocks, eventually to become a donation quilt for a boy.  I’m doing the suggested colour with ...

Some super sweet customers have been sharing photos of adorable projects they have created using my paper piece patterns. I LOVE to see their fun creations.
