Red Again, Again

I'm back home after spending a week with my son, DIL and darling granddaughter that Millie has nicknamed "Little Miss." It is a name entirely appropriate for a sweet baby who naps in anybody's arms and does not like a dirty or a wet diaper. I spent the week cooking, doing the dishes, walking the dog, and of course, holding the baby.  But enough of that, you're here for the quilts, and so am I.

After doing the various tasks associated with coming home from a trip, I sewed these strips together. They will be cut into triangles for a part of the block.

I saw this block in "Modern Neutrals" by Amy Ellis, and although I've figured out how to make it without paper piecing (her way in the book) I am not going to give dimensions and such here. It's Amy's block, and you can buy her book for all that.

Each strip yields nine of these triangles. My task for the day is cutting them all out.  Woo Hoo!

For those of you (like me) who need it, here's the latest and greatest photo of my dear Little Miss.
