Red and White Quilt
This block has lots of names - Devils Claw, Turkey Tracks, Botch Handle, Crows feet. Not sure what I will call mine. They are 8" finished, and I think they are going to be one of those blocks that are not going to turn out so perfect, with the tricky piecing.
I saw the quilt pictured on the front of Betsy Chutchian's book, Gone to Texas
Pickledish store and have a look at the pages.
This made up my mind! I have two boxes of red fabrics to choose from, and I found a heap - (I mean yards and yards), of white shirting with a tiny red print, in my clean up. I bought it for another project and it did not happen.
So my reds will get an airing, and i will feel like I have achieved something this week. I printed my pattern on Block Base where you will find it called Botch Handle. I made the blocks 8", but in some of the patterns I have seen it is quite large. The one in the books above are 11".
I might even make two of these, the red one 8" and a multi-coloured quilt with larger blocks.
