I finished my Peppermint Stick and signature blocks for Andrea while I was on retreat at Gruber's with my prized blogging friends
. Not as fun as Amanda Jean's...But I didn't have that many bright, clear reds, surprisingly. I found that I have a tendency more toward the brick reds. So, I found these two great reds at Gruber's
(I love gingham, and you might not be able to tell from the photo, but the more solid red is quilter's linen...it has a little visual texture). I just alternated the two reds. I thought that was kind of fun for a Peppermint Stick. I hope you like these, Andrea! They are on their way to you!
I know everyone else thought these were easy, but I tell you, I unsewed several of the seams. I had the hardest time with those stupid angles! LOL. But that's just me. Your tutorial was awesome. Once I got the hang of it, I was okay.
Can't wait to see your finished quilt with these! How fun!
Thank you, Andrea, for coordinating this bee. I had so much fun, and I appreciate how gentle everyone was with me on my first bee. I am sad to see it come to an end. I look forward to seeing everyone's finished quilts!
