Random Red for February

29 comments
Pat was suggesting/hosting a random picture post on her blog last week. And since I'm so busy with several projects I thought I would do as she suggested and go through my pictures to post some random Red pictures from my photo library that would fit for February.
I love this plate. Love it. I got it several years ago at Target. I picked it up as soon as I saw it and put it in my cart. I am so glad I did because I went back a little later to get another one for a gift and they were gone! That happens with cute stuff.
This is a free tutorial on my side bar for a valentine flag/wall hanging posted a couple years ago. I still love it. Some of my newer readers may have not seen this before. It is fun to make.
A red fan from a youth size quilt I made several years ago that I am holding on to. I said I'd give this quilt to my first granddaughter. But I am quite attached to it. I will either have to make myself a new one and give this to Allison when she's a bit older or make a clone for Allison.
Fun quilted Valentine post cards I made last year and still have a few left over to send this year. Gosh they were so fun to make.
Random red blocks left over and too cute to part with. I love square in a square.

All fun stuff. Excuse my need to post old pictures. But Pat had a good idea for blog posts when I'm too busy to show something new! Repeats work sometimes.

I loved looking at your RED photos. I think people do enjoy seeing photos of times (and things) past when we post them....and I am going to do this periodically on my blog.

Oh, I love it all, you are so talented! And so busy!!! I like this type of posting, think I will try it too. So glad you shared some of what you call older stuff, as I had not seen it. Thanks.

Great idea to show your "red". I will try and do the same some time this month.

Vicki said...

I remember some of these from last year, they are so cute! The patchy hearts are awesome.

Love everything RED. You might recall I made one of your Valentine Flags and it's hanging in my entry as we speak. :-)

Thimbleanna said...

Great idea Nanette! I'm having the same problem. Love all your pretty red goodies!

Enjoyed looking at your Valentine projects. The square in a square blocks are definitely too cute not to use in some other project.

Sherri said...

Love everything red! What a fun post!

Jan said...

Yes, "repeat" does work cuz I thoroughly enjoyed seeing it all :) Did you get your new washing machine??? Is it possibly red too??? Ohhh and God Bless the people in your community for all they are doing for the folks in Haiti!

SueWis said...

That plate is adorable. And I love all your teapots here and there. And that utensil fabric! So much cuteness!

Sandi said...

Love all your red pictures and so appropriate for Valentine's Day. I have a bowl that matches your plate. It was the only one left when I got to the Valentine stuff a couple years ago. I recognise those Valentines and treasure mine! Here's what you can do for the youth size fan quilt...let Allison use it when she come to your house and then it can be a special quilt for just when she visits Grammy. :-)

Your plate is very cute, I love the red things for February.

I'm in love with all your red crafty bits. So adorable! The valentine's plate is very cute :)
Btw, I love the quilting on the dresden fan. So delicate and light-hearted :)

GAWJUS plate .... so cool that you got to snaffle one :o)!! Love your square in a square blocks too. I have very little red, I'm a 'pink' girl ;o).
Hugs,

Susan said...

This is a fun way to show your reds--love it.

Jill said...

I love the vintage looking Valentines plate & fabrics! You are the Queen of cute fabrics!! I really like your fan quilt with the tea kettle & the square-in-a-square block with the tes kettle-it's all so inspiring!!

Jackie said...

Love older pictures! These are wonderful. Lots of inspiration for a wonderful red Valentine's day.

Mimi Sue said...

I love anything with red in it but your fabric is adorable. I was at the Quilters Haven in Bountiful today. They were giving out a pattern and fabric to make little dresses for Haitian children. Is your quilt shop doing that too? Great cause and the little kits were flying out the door. Mimi

The quilts are so nice! They are for Valentines really with the colors that are used - different shades of red.

Isn't red such a wonderful color. I love your plate so glad you grabbed it when you saw it. And all your quilty things just make me smile.

Lori Holt said...

I think it's a great idea! I just might do the same thing. It makes for a fun post...we all like looking at pictures...and red is my favorite.

Barbara said...

I'm always happy to see lovely things again (and honestly, I retain so little sometimes that everything seems new to me!)

Robyn said...

Thanks for the inspiration! I spent the weekend sewing some red and pink squares together to make my own Valentine banner and I blogged about it today. I'm liking how it looks!
