白血病キャンペーンキルト Quilts for Leukaemia

白いクレージーのブロックを終わらせてから、実は二日がかりで赤いブロックを作りました。これは前にこのブログにコメントをくれたフランスのクレアさんが主宰している、白血病キャンペーンキルトに協力するために作ったものです。赤と白、21.5cm 角という指定です。
After the white on white blocks, I have been making a red on red block for
the Quilts for Leukaemia, which Clare Worthy from France organises. She sent me a comment on this blog a few weeks ago. A block must be red & white and 8.5" square.
I thought my block should be not so heavy because other blocks must be sane ones. If one block is too heavy, it may destroy the whole balance. But Clare wanted beaded block when I asked.

Therefore I added beads and made the block heavier than before.
And I will send this block too. Very very long ago I sew up many small log cabin blocks with red and white prints. I remembered that and seeked them to make this block. I can do logcabin and nine patches.

Both the log cabins and the silky fabrics will be wonderful contributions. I really like the stitching you did on the seams. There were several things there I hadn't considered doing, one reason I love reading the blogs. Lots of great inspiration.
