Robins, red & white blocks



Here's my fifth round for the Stay at Home Robin - I added a 4x6" and 4x7" block to the bottom of this piece - I am thinking I might take the left-hand one back off and add more black, then turn it at an angle. Either that, or straighten out the right hand one - I really don't like the balance much. I'm also not that crazy about the colour of the left-hand rectangle - too close to the colour of the bottom of the flying goose above it.



And here's the addition for the Japanese taupe one - hard to see in this photo as both are very pale in colour, but they are quite different.



And these are some 8" (8.5" unfinished) red and white blocks which I made for my friend Clare, for Quilts for Leukemia. Now to get them off in the post to her for her challenge...

Very nice work. I didn't realize the red and white blocks represented leukemia sickness. My daughter is a survivor of breast cancer and we had made a few quilts with breast cancer fabrics.
