Many of you have no doubt heard of the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain. I bet you didn't know New Orleans has its own running of the bulls, aka San Fermin en Nueva Orleans. The participants are expected to dress in white and wear red neck scarves and sashes. It's an amazing sea of red and white, running through the streets of New Orleans!
Unfortunately, my only running with red this week involves fabric.
A run of scrappy red geese that will eventually be incorporated into Scrap Jar Stars blocks.
A lonely red 9 patch. Most of the pieces here are ancient scraps (greater than 10 years old!), so I'm glad they are on the run!
I ran through some more red scraps catching up with the Rainbow Sampler blocks for this month.
After I made the Nonesense block, I decided my fabric choices made it look like firecrackers!
I also ran across these cats in the scrap bag. I thought they'd make a good Hashtag block, but I think I'll call mine "Cat-tag". (sorry, I'm genetically wired to love puns!) BTW, the background fabric is black and white, not black and pink.
My last year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge was all about colorful houses in fabric and in New Orleans. I recently ran across a photo essay of colorful New Orleans houses and thought you all might enjoy it. My fabric houses are still warming up; I have lots of great ideas for assembling them into a quilt, but never enough hours in the day to do all the quilting I'd like!
And now I've run out of corny ways to talk about this week's quilting marathon, so I'll stop and encourage you to stroll over to Angela's Soscrappy blog for some more scrappy red energy!
