Redwork~






So~A dear friend did all the weekday redwork blocks for me as a gift~I simply had to do two blocks to even out the quilt so I chose an Irish blessing and a vase full of my grandies...I finally put the last three names in the flowers today...good grief..why do the little things take the longest time? Anyh00 it is done!
