Red and White - Show it! You Made It! You Designed It!

Show It! You Made It! You Designed It!

SewCalGal's year of Red and White Challenges has inspired a couple of quilts for me this year.

Here is my first one:

Zig Zag Love was designed for a charity group and then used as a practice top to experiment with various quilting ideas before doing two red and white quilts requested by author Linda Baxter Lasco for her new book Red, White and Quilted.

Just as the sun was rising I took this photo to get great shadowing so that you can see the quilting.

And the second:

Red Starry Night resulted from the Republic quilt guild (Piece 'n Pals) challenge to use 4 specific blocks: Churn Dash, Star, Log Cabin and House; each 6" finished and the total piece had to be between 14.5" and 15.5" square.

It received Judges' Choice for the challenge entries.

  3. Fantastic quilting. It really makes this quilt! Great job!
