Linda and I had lots of wonderful feedback on the Red Cross Quilt I recently quilted for her. Linda from Quilts in the Barn has done it again, making yet another beautiful Red & White Quilt to add to her growing collection. Linda saw a version of this quilt during her travels to the USA and has drafted the pattern up herself. As usual, the piecing was immaculate and the quilt a pleasure to work on. I love the fact that this quilt is predominantly red, a reversal of the usual red and white quilts.
The quilt has been quilted with curved cross-hatching in the red setting areas, continuous curves and orange peel in the white stars.
As Linda loves feathers, the large border was quilted with whimsical, curly feathers.
I love the secondary patterns created by the quilting - the circular elements of the curved cross-hatching and the orange peel running diagonally across the entire quilt through the stars.
This quilt will be exhibited as part of the Quilts in the Barn Exhibition
