Red Sunset and more bread
Yay! The center of Red Sunset is done and I absolutely love it! The pattern is Tequila Lime by Quiltworx. There's not much to say about it except that it's done and I'm happy.
I wanted to get it done by Saturday because there was about this much paper in tiny bits all over my floor. I needed it cleaned up by Sunday morning so I could do my weekly fabric ironing. The paper removal is messy and tedious but I had a good book to keep me entertained. I think the extra work is worth it for perfect points.
The part I finished will be set on point with this border pattern. I'll start cutting the fabrics for these sections this week. I'm going to cut all the fabric at once, I think. Making these borders is going to take a minute or two.
To motivate myself I took a photo of the top on the guest bed. I think it's going to look awesome. The corners of the top of the bed will have blue spiky motifs. I think that will be perfect. Then the wave border will be on the drape at the corners.
I also tried another recipe from my new gluten free baking book and had another successful loaf. This one was more rustic. It was great for a steak sandwich for dinner and with hummus for lunch. This week I will try the loaf bread recipe.
I also did a good bit of crochet during football this weekend. I'll share that on Wednesday. I decided to keep going with hats for a week as a break from blankets.

Wow - I love your new Red Sunset quilt! The colors are luminous with your hand dyed fabrics and also goes well with the colors in your hand dyed fabric headboard.

The red sunset center is gorgeous, but those borders are insane! Wonderful looking bread. What flour did you use to make them? You have me in the mood to make a loaf of bread. I may whip up a loaf of the Italian Harvest Bread I have been making lately since I will be home this afternoon sitting the HVAC serviceman.

Congrats on finishing the middle, and also for finding some palatable gluten free bread recipes. Those loaves look, well they look normal!!

I was bedazzled by that center piece, and then realized - but wait, there's more! It's definitely going to be stunning on your guest bed! I enjoy FPP, even the paper removal; it's therapeutic, in a way, especially if you have a good book or something to watch.

The colors in that quilt top just blow me away. The work involved just scares the hell out of me!

I think I'd be thrilled with the quilt as it is and would give up on it long before I started on those intricate-looking borders! As Becky said in her comment - scares the hell out of me too!

Wow Vicki.....your color choices are fabulous! FUN to see a preview of the center panel on the bed. Judy Neimeyer patterns have always been a favorite of mine. Keep at it.....you are getting closer to the finish line!
