Red Letter Day

As many of you would know, 
Camille from Bonnie and Camille
and Thimbleblossoms recently released 
some new patterns, one of them called
"Red Letter Day".
Her version was made using their new line 
"Miss Kate".
Unfortunately I don't have any Miss Kate in my stash just yet,
so I decided to use some of the fabric that I've been collecting



Red for the centre






And here is the whole thing sewn together.

It's a big one - the husband complained about his arms
while I tried to take photos.

 Home-made Baptist Fans.

There was a lot of line marking on this top.

Then the quilting part.
It was surprisingly easy and fairly quick.

It has been used in the lounge room by the whole family.

I love how it crinkled after being washed and tumble dried.

I think I will make another one as I enjoyed this one so much.

So that's it,
my Red Letter Day.
