Red and white – 6 & almost 7

Red and white – 6 – I cut these out yesterday but didn’t get around to sewing them until this evening.

I was worried I’d lose all the pieces for the two blocks, so I just put them into the book on the pages for their block and closed up the book to keep all the pieces together.

Red and white - mistaken block 7

Block 6 is Friendship Chain.


Block 7 is called Aunt Nancy’s Favorite. I planned to change the corners to white to emphasize the X. Unfortunately I wasn’t paying attention when I sewed it, and I reversed the red and white in the corners and ended up with a star instead of an X. So this one will have to go on the orphan block pile and I’ll make it again.
