The “Retro” Block – Kevin’s Red One and the Purple One
Camille Roskelley’s “Retro” block was definitely a lot of fun to make. In fact I liked it so much that I made two quilts with that block. I thought it would be fun to try the quilt in purple and orange. Because the purple and orange were so strong in color, I added the white blocks in the middle to help break it up a bit. As I was putting this quilt together, I thought that using a red dot and plain white would look really cool too. So after I finished the first quilt, I jumped right into the second one. I chose six other dot fabrics and started cutting. Both quilts came together quickly and I like how they make such a neat pattern. I am looking forward to getting these quilted 🙂 They always look so much better when they have been quilted and bound!
As I spread the red one out on my couch to take a look, my puppy Kevin immediately jumped up on it. He loves my quilts – tee-hee!
Here is the purple one. Mike and Erica thought it looked very Halloween-ish!
Here is the red dot quilt. I ran out of the red dot fabric toward the end and had to substitute another dot fabric in. I actually like how it turned out. It gives the quilt a little burst of energy.
And my two faithful companions…
