Sew & Bee Happy: October Blocks

Wendi was our bee mama this month in Sew & Bee Happy.  As she had already started a granny quilt and just needed a few more blocks to finish it off.  Perfect for this bee as there are only 10 of us and we each make 1 block a month.  Wendi was looking for scrappy fabrics with a white background, but particularly red prints.  We'll, I'm your gal.



It's really white...honest.  And there is a difference in color between the orange dotty print and the outer red print...honest.  I'm so sorry for the night time photo, but with winter coming light is hard to find in the evenings!

As you know, Granny and I have had our bouts in the past.  This block came together surprisingly easily. Wendi, I hope it suits your quilt well.  It's winging its way to you!
