Living in Australia made it a bit difficult to get to the recent exhibition of red and white quilts in USA, so I started playing in Electric Quilt … I need to do something while I wait for the book.
Here are a couple of links just in case you missed the show like me, and missed the references which blanketed the web while it was happening.
Back to my red and white series, starting with the sampler.
I selected 10 blocks from my collection of Nine Patch block designs, and added red and white fabrics … I couldn’t quite handle plain red and plain white, so selected a white with a tiny touch of contrast, and a red with quite a big dark floral design.
Two of the designs begged for a slight variation in colouring, so I have included them in the mix.
So, let us have a look at the basic blocks in a straight set, no sashing.
I can’t find names for any of these blocks … if you don’t know either, perhaps you can suggest one.
The block above I think is my favourite block in the series … I have the advantage of knowing how this block works when alternated with the others.
Like the one above too!
Boy, that last one changes character when used side by side!
Come back tomorrow for the next instalment of red and white quilts.
