I was excited to see that the color of the month for the RSC19 was red as well. What motivation!
I used up a bunch of my red stash to make a pieced back. Interesting how the colors landed. You can see some of the Ohio sun shining on the left side of the quilt. Woohoo for sunshine. It was in the mid 20's most of the day.
I'm quilting it with my new (to me) Circle Lord Template -- clam shells. I really like how it looks on the 2.5" squares (2" finished). I'm getting a little extra thread on the back at each point. I'll have to figure it out. I had that problem with Square Dance as well. In time I got faster and the extra thread problem took care of itself. Let's hope that happens on this quilting design as well.
This is what the quilt top looked like when I finished it in 2017. What a bright, sunny day...
