Last November, I asked the quilters of the Love Circle of do. Good Stitches to make blocks using the tutorials on Jodi’s blog, Tales of Cloth.

Red Sky at Night

I suggested a palette of dark blue, gold, light blue, warm reds, and creamy low volumes.


For the back, I used some much-loved coordinating half yards and fat quarters. I’d been holding on to many of those prints but couldn’t find the right project. When I had them together on the back it was easy to let them go from my stash – I thought they were too perfect together to hold any one of them back for a project that merely “might be.” I’m satisfied to see them there now.

I quilted straight-lines about 3/8″ apart in the sashing and perle cotton size 8 for the tying in the pieced blocks. I used the blue grid from Carolyn Friedlander’s Doe line which I

I still need to get a label on this, but when I do, I have two quilts ready to be mailed to Wrap them in Love, the charity that our circle supports. I’ll share the other quilt soon!

    You’re a pro at finding balance with a bunch of random(esque) blocks! This quilt looks great. The combo of tying and machine quilting is a pretty fun touch, too. I’m in awe of all that you do. One day, I will contribute to a Do Good Stitches quilt. Mark my words (but don’t hold me to it until at least the fall!) lol <3

    Oh what a gorgeous colour scheme and a beautiful quilt – I love how well balanced it is for lots of different blocks 🙂
