Something Old, Something New ...

... Something Borrowed, Something ... Red!

I know, this is coming out of left field ... I've put the Pantry Challenge (warm/fall colors orphan blocks) on the back burner this month because I have an idea for a new layout but with two weeks traveling this month I don't think I'll have the time to devote to it.

Sew, in the meantime I have a new-ish project on the design wall.  And it's RED, the RSC  color for March.  How convenient!!

The blocks are old -- 4-patch posies from a graphic black/white/red floral print.

The setting is new, an inspiration I got from 101 Fabulous Rotary-Cut Quilts.

The black fabric in the diamond sashing has been borrowed from another project.

Progress to date:

Needs a name
I'm officially declaring my One Monthly Goal (OMG) for March:  Complete the center of ... well, it needs a name.  Any suggestions?

Linking up with Patty D at Elm Street Quilts for OMG and whooping it up with Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict because I'm happy to get these 35 old blocks out of my Parts Department!.


  1. You are on a roll, Libby! This is going to be another gorgeous quilt. The name "Black and White and Red All Over" popped into my head when I saw this. I love your sashing!

  2. Those blocks are great. Here's hoping you finish your omg before/after traveling. I love the colors. No ideas on names... which explains why most of the names I come up with are red quilt with a touch of black or... something just as mundane.

  3. This is going to be beautiful. I like how you pulled all these different projects together.

  4. I am no good at selecting quilt names, but black,red & white is one of my favorite color combinations for a quilt. I really like the different setting that you have for your posey blocks.

  5. Great quilt layout. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and good luck on your project.

  6. Oh aren't those pretty! You can do it - and a name will come to you ;-)

  7. Looking forward to one of your two travel weeks this month!!

    I have some old 4-Patch Posies SOMEWHERE in my stash!! Mine are pale yellow. Kudos to you for getting yours out and doing something with them! As for a name for the quilt... I got nothing!!

  8. OOOOOOH! That's definitely going to be a quilt with a lot of WOW factor. The name "Poppies" keeps coming to mind when I look at those blocks. Not very original, but those blocks do pop!

  9. I always enjoy the drama of black/white/red designs - and this one is going to be really nice with those sashings! Hope the project you "borrowed" from doesn't expect it's black back anytime soon LOL!!!

  10. You're demonstrating that sometimes keeping orphans on hand is worth it -- this layout is wonderful!!
