It is going to be a stunning quilt! I was interesting when you said that you wash and iron the small pieces of fabric--they don't look frayed at all. Do you wash them by hand or in the washing machine?


What a beautiful, beautiful block! I love the red and white prints. So glad you had a nice visit with your friends.
Deb, I hope and pray your power stays. We've gotten about two inches of snow so far so it looks like we'll have a good amount before its over, too. Stay warm!


Love all the pretty quilt blocks. Please show us the finished product whenever you get it done.
Hope your power stays on. We got about four inches and then a 1/2 of ice. We're all staying home and staying warm. I'll be praying for all of you -especially Tom as he works to restore any power outages. I know you'll be glad to see him back home and soon!



Hi Becka, I'm answering your question in the comments since others may want to know the answer, too.

I always wash these little pieces of fabric in hot water in my bathroom basin with some Woolite. I want to make sure they won't bleed, especially since I'm using reds. Then I'll rinse them and gently squeeze out the water. Last, I place them on a clean towel and roll up to dry a bit. Then I'll iron them dry. They never fray this way, and it works well.

Thanks for your question and comment.

Nice quilt block.Interesting on how you wash the material.

We have had our storm and this afternoon some is melting.Our power was off during the night.Hope tom is okay at work..


I've already written how quilting doesn't hold the same attraction for me as it does for millions of other women, BUT, this quilt-in-progress is absolutely lovely. The colors are so cool. Good job.

However, this news is about 10 days old. I need my Girotti fix...a new post would be nice. You owe it to your fans. :)


Hi Deb! Is there a pattern for this quilt that I could buy? If so, could you send me the name? I want a new quilt for my bed and i want to do blues this time. I loved this pattern but I have been hoping to find one to buy and not make :o)!
