TODAY IS MY DAY ON THE RWB BLOG HOP


WELCOME
TO 
GMAMA'S DAY 
ON THE 
RED WHITE BLUE BLOG HOP
RED WHITE BLUE  KLOSJES
I'm PROUD you hopped over to my blog to see my 
RED WHITE and BLUE  CREATIONS.
Some of you long time followers may remember my "Klosjes" or "Spools" tutorial in the 
Wannabe a Quilter Campaign 
on 
Madame Samm's Blog, SEW WE QUILT.
(You may search the SWQ blog for the tutorial if you're interested.
Or go HERE)

I LOVE this simple spools pattern and thought it would make a fun RWB Block.  Here is another look.  Unfortunately, I am NOT a photographer and only own a Kodak Share camera so I do the best I can.  Hopefully, Santa may decide to bring Gmama a New Camera for Christmas...*hint*


I Like that I can turn this little block for a different look.

Here is my Little RWB Mini Quilt...gold stars appliqued to center Spool.
I took this picture under my HUGE Maple Tree covered in English Ivy

Door Hanging...Not Bound...My arthritis took over and the binding will have to wait a couple of days.  A Lot of needle work sometimes makes the *old* hands and fingers get a bad case of the 
"Whines...need a little Cheese with that Whine?
a close-up look
AND...
A CUTE RWB PIN-CUSHION

  1. I remember your klosjes! I've never made a spool block (yet) but seeing them in the RWB colors makes the spools sparkle and I may have to sew one up now! Love the door hanging and the little pincushion is darling. I've got you on my blog list (on my blog page) but don't know if that makes me a follower or not.
    Believe me, I understand about "old finger whines"...crochet makes 'em whine, too!
    Great post!

  39. Love your red, white and blue inspirations and Maxine-she's a trip! But she sure "hits the nail on the head"
    From the other side of the country - in California, hope you are coping with the hot weather. It's cooler than usual her in the SF Bay area, but I'm not complaining because I know our turn with the hot weather is probably just around the corner.

  78. This old goat is now a follower and I must say that although I've loved all of the blocks I've seen, yours are my favorite. First of all, I've decided that RWB quilt is what I want to do next and secondly, the spool quilt design is one I've wanted to do forever - I just never thought of doing it in RWB. I just have to get my mom's quilt done first :)

    Thank you!
