After much consideration, I decided not to proceed with Red Delicious. It's not that I don't like the quilt, it is absolutely beautiful and I am very pleased with what I have accomplished. I do plan to make, at some point, my two favourite blocks, Ruby Tea and Cherry Basket. So, what I have done is turned my completed blocks into a wall hanging. Better to get these beauties up on the wall, then sitting in a project box. Quilting will be done by hand, with yellow thread, to match the background fabric.
Until next time.....happy quilting!
