Favourite Colours – Red And White!

Posted on | August 30, 2012 | 8 Comments

I have gone back to playing with my favourite combination of red and white.

I received some gorgeous blocks stitched by the amazing Pauline – Quilt-n-Queen.  Pauline does the most beautiful stitching. I wanted to use the blocks in a quilt and make sure they were the focal point and not have the piecing take over. I ended up making very simple hourglass blocks in red and white, then alternating them with the stitcheries.

I hope to be doing the quilting on this top in the next few weeks. Pauline has chosen blocks that are appropriate to my state and I do love the selection.

But there is one block that is not on the front. I have saved that for a label on the back, and that seems appropriate because this building was always found out the back. :)

Thank you, Pauline, for your generosity.

    OMG how did NOT see this….I had forgotten I had even sent them to you. Your quilt is beautiful…you know I love red and white. I love that ‘out back’ block…a little tedious to stitch but I love it!! It will make the perfect label. Thanks for sharing the quilt. Have a great weekend with lots of happy stitching, hugs Pauline

  • I like how you set these lovely embroidered blocks. You kept the red and white theme going but the embroidered blocks are still the highlight of this quilt. Very cool!

  • How very pretty, and you have done exactly the setting that shows the stitcheries to perfection.
