RED 12 x 12 Challenge quilts

One night a week I head off to my quilting buddy's house for a night of stitching and chatting.  Last night I took along my camera for her to have a look at as her camera has died.  I didn't realise she snapped a pic of me, but I'm glad she did.  She's moving back to the UK soon and I'm going to miss our quilting nights SO much.  Doesn't it look cozy?  And what was I working on?  Hand stitching down the facing on my last RED 12 x 12 challenge quilt.

Here's a snap of all four of them.  They are finished and waiting for the postman.  Here's a link to the RED 12 x 12 challenge if you want to know more.


  1. Sounds like you will miss your sewing friend. Great mini quilts.....heaps of good luck.

  2. Awesome Charlotte, gorgeous 12x12s... and I like that shade of red - is it one of your own dyes?

  3. They all look lovely but I particularly like the one with the black tree.
    Hope you find another quilting buddy soon!

  4. Love those and just had the group tell me about this challenge.... A bit late this year. Unless.....

    btw loved the other things but my comments have been going into a black hole for a week thanks to other half and a bit of happening when I wasn't here :( Fixed now hopefully never to be repeated.
