Red & White For Christmas

Red & White For Christmas

Written by:

And Valentine's Day.  And for summer.  And spring.  Because it's Monday.  Really... is there ever a bad time for a Red & White quilt?

Yes, Infinite Variety, NYC, May 2011.  It was magical.  

While red and white quilts have always been collectible, this show created a resurgence of interest in red and white quilts of every kind.  From quilts made with two fabrics, or those made with a variety of reds.  And shades of white and cream.

Red & White Quilts - published by Martingale earlier this month.

Sweet Dreams by Lissa Alexander - ModaLissa.

Twisted Cabin by Sarah Huechteman - a Moda quilt sewist extraordinaire.

Memory of a Masterpiece by Lisa Bongean.  (Of course.) (3,272.)

Daydreams by Camille Roskelley - of Thimble Blossoms and Bonnie & Camille.

Clockwise from upper left:

Enough with the Curves by Jen Kingwell.

Happy Accident by Susan Ache.

Stars in Flight by Jill Shaulis and Forever Thoughtful by Sue Daley.

Tracking Tradition by Debbie Roberts. 

All of these quilts were part of the Special Exhibit for Red & White quilts at Quilt Market and Quilt Festival in Houston - sponsored by Moda/Martingale.  We shared a few of those pictures here

While you should start a red and white quilt today - or soon - if you'd like to finish something by Christmas, maybe a pillow.  

We shared these pillows in July 2016 - Christmas in July.

If you've only counted thirteen quilts from the book...

This is Walk This Way.  I made this one.  It won't be home for Christmas this year but that's okay - it means I've got a good jump on Christmas 2019!

And so will you.  We're giving away three copies of the Red & White Quilts book.  Leave a comment by Midnight on Thursday, December 6 CST telling us whether you've ever made a red and white quilt.  And if you did, was it two fabrics or scrappy?

Happy Monday!
