THE WORD FOR THIS WEEK...

............ in  Alsha's Space: 52 Weeks Word Photo Challenge is RED. I am very fond of this colour and so finding pictures was NOT a problem xx I could choose any one of these..




I will leave it to decide which one YOU would choose x

The quilt they are wrapped up in is my FIRST log cabin ..



as you can see it has been much used .. and LOVED ..and washed! And it is the FIRST one I used fleece on the back x


... yes! you read that right .. I made it ALL by hand .. I had been working nights on a VERY quiet ward (first and LAST time ever)!!.. it is a wonderful warm and cosy red .. and I am sure that is one of the reasons it has been SO loved . It was a favourite of my daughters .. but they just did not have room to take it to Australia with them .. makes me think of her every time I see it x

Pop over and see the other entries and maybe enter one of your own while you are there xx

I really like that quilt, the logs, the poppies, the way it's put together. I'm not surprised it was well loved, it looks like your grandson still loves it :)

If the focus of red is the quilt, they are all tops. I love the srory as much as the quilt.

I've got two red fleece patchworks on the go, they somehow seem much warner than using other coloured fleece! Awesome log cabin!
