Blogger's Quilt Festival - Red Cross Quilt

I am once again participating in the Blogger's Quilt Festival organised by Amy of Amy's Creative Side from May 18 to June 1, 2012.  The Blogger's Quilt Festival is an online quilt festival where bloggers from around the world showcase a quilt.  Once you have had a look here, head on over and take some time viewing the other wonderful quilts. 

This time, I am sharing another of Linda's quilts.  Linda is from Quilts in the Barn and, after visiting the Infinite Variety Exhibition of red and white quilts in New York City last year, she has developed a love of red and white quilts.  Linda's quilt is the traditional Red Cross Quilt which was pieced to perfection.


Linda loves feathers, so feathers I quilted ...


As a contrast to the feathers, the red crosses and the red sashing have been quilted with simple continuous curves and cross-hatching.




This quilt will be exhibited as part of the Quilts in the Barn Exhibition
(a fundraiser for Breastcancer Research)  as follows:-
Quilts In The Barn 2012

Infinite Variety Revisited
An Exhibition of Red And White Quilts

Also featuring Red And White Antique Quilts
by Mary Koval

I hope you have enjoyed Linda's quilt - remember to head on over to see many of the other wonderful quilts in the Blogger's Quilt Festival - enjoy!
