Red and White 2 Block Quilts 106, 107, 108, 109 and 110

Red and White 2 Block Quilts 106

Ok, it is time to think about opening the cupboard which hold the Christmas goodies, so I am going to set the mood a little, with red and white quilts this week.

Red and White 2 Block Quilts 107

This series is getting near the end … I have combined 10 blocks plus two colour placement variations into two block combinations

Red and White 2 Block Quilts 108

Some interesting combinations have surfaced, like the two above.

The blocks which have linked together like the two above would make interesting ‘sashing’ for applique blocks, or to frame some interesting quilting, as well as making for smallish pieced designs, or as a frame for printed panels.

Not all combinations are exciting, but the best way to see is to mix them up, and Electric Quilt is a great way to test blocks!

Then you can mix them up again with them set on point … will show some of them tomorrow!

    Nice and the ways to combine them are close to unlimited. Your post for the 3rd would not let me comment but I agree that the second one is nicer with the space to rest the eyes!

    • Cindy,

      Using just two blocks per quilt and a collection of ten blocks with two colour variations there is a limit … 120 – 130 from memory. Throw in another ten blocks and the figure is huge! When you start mixing them with more than two alternate blocks there is quite a bit more room for creativity.

      About you being unable to comment … that was because I edited the publishing date to the time and date it should have been! I hit the publish button before I scheduled the post!
