Red & White

Remember the red & white quilt exhibit that was held in New York a few years ago? I was not able to attend the show but sure wished I had seen it. Now, the book is out.

                                  

Members of my small quilt groups have become inspired and so we're making small red & white quilts in November and December. The culmination will be a "little" showing of our quilts mid-December. Find more info on my Small Quilt Lovers Facebook group  here 


Why don't you join us? You know you want to  . . . .

Your quilts do not have to be complicated or fancy -  just a simple red & white quilt smaller than  30"  x  30" will do.  Try making one from a pattern in one of my books or design one yourself using a favorite block. If you're new to quilting, it can be something really simple, like a four-patch or nine-patch quilt.

A little red & white quilt  -  one of the first quilts I made when I first began to quilt. Gotta love those wonky blocks and cut off points! We all have to start somewhere . . . .

Here's some inspiration -

I'm looking forward to seeing our little show too. I do hope I can find some time to make a little red and white quilt. I am busy trying to finish up my big(ger) red and cream quilt right now.

Kathy, I am new to your blog but have seen many photos of the red and white show. I'm going to email my sis and see if she wants to stitch a little red and white quilt along with me. Thanks for all the inspiration.

Ooo, I like every one of these red and white quilts. They are truly inspiring. Thank you for showing them. Your first attempts are darling. Perhaps it is my eyesight but I cannot see hardly a "cut-off" point. Charming.
