Redwork Christmas Quilt (Update #1)

Remember how I was designing the Redwork Christmas Quilt? Well I worked on it a bit while I was in labour and have continued working on it between other projects since our son was born. Here is how it is currently looking:

While I am generally happy with the design, I have decided to change it a little. The hearts in the border... well, they are going. There are a couple of reasons for this change:
  1. I think the blocks will look too busy when put together with Christmas quilting material; and
  2. The hearts are a bit too "girly" and were only included in the original design because I thought I was having a girl...turns out I was wrong!
Anyway, I am pleased with how it is turning out and have decided that the quilt will consist of 9 blocks in total. I am hoping that I will be able to finish off the first square this weekend, which means I really, really need to get my act together and design that second block!
