From K - Red Letter Day Quilt Progress

Time is ticking and our cousin Bree's wedding is nearing closer every day. With an international border between us and a whole lot of trust in two notably slow postal services, Amanda and I are still planning on starting and finishing a quilt together over the next four weeks... yes we know we're crazy but we figure it must run in the family.
We both spent our weekend trying to finish up our Red Letter Day Quilt blocks, so I figured I would share my progress with you.
Amanda and I thought this pattern might be a good choice for us given it was striking, relatively gender neutral, and also because we might have been running out of time. Why yes, procrastination runs in our family too...
While Amanda's blocks are hitting the mail soon, I wrapped up my three blocks and have started on preparing a quilt back and binding. With only 9 blocks, this quilt top should be quick and easy to piece once Amanda's additional 6 blocks arrive in the mail. Fingers crossed they show up soon so I can baste, quilt and bind this beauty before the big day in July approaches. Keep your fingers crossed for us!


  1. Love the colors and the block. Is there a patter for it available somewhere? I can't wait to see the finished quilt for your cousin!

  2. Those blocks are gorgeous! Such precise piecing.

  3. Wow, those are gorgeous. I love how well you matched the solids with the prints.

  4. Your blocks are beautiful and look perfect!

  5. It's going to be awesome! Best, Kate

  6. Love them! And can't wait to see them paired up with Amanda's!
