Twisted Happy Blocks

My grandmother's favorite color combination was red and black, so when I saw the stack of red and black fabrics at the Make a Blanket Day event last Saturday I thought it would be fun to put together a red and black quilt for Project Linus in her memory. I'm using the Twisted Happy Block block pattern from MaryQuilts.com. These blocks are fast and fun to make and I think the end result will be a great quilt for Project Linus!

You need to post a picture of this one when it's finished! I'd like to see the whole thing. I love those colors too, red is my favorite.

Making a quilt in your grandmothers honored is truly special. I have a feeling that she would be really tickled.

Great way to remember a loved one and put a little of that love in a gift for such a good cause.

It will be great, love the block. I made your blondie recipe this week, they didn't look as good as yours though very tasty.
