Red Home Quilt Blocks

I had a lovely couple of hours of stitching time yesterday .... a good start to the New Year!!!   I am making the quilt from the Red Home book by Natalie Bird ....

I did change the dog on a scooter block to become a chocolate labrador with a quilt in her mouth ... trust me this has happened in our house with one particular chocolate labrador !!   This is one of Lynette Anderson's designs ....

Here is the block with red squares attached ...

And the pretty red robin block ....

With red squares attached .... and so now I have one block left to finish on this quilt and then I can hopefully put it all together .... a good sewing start to the New Year!
