Red & White Quilt #2

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
(a fundraiser for Breastcancer Research) as follows:-
