A little wall hanging I made as a swap with a friend. She embroidered for my quilt and I did a little applique for her quilt back in 1997.
I densely hand quilted this quilt. Still love it just the same as I did when I made it. I guess that's why the Red and White combination is considered to be so timeless.
Few years back I had started this quilt based on the pattern by Blackbird designs. Although, I have only made one block I still like it enough that I will finish this quilt with same selection of fabrics.
This quilt top I made during one of my husband's business trips.
I had seen the picture of the original quilt in a blue and white combination and wanted to try my own take on it!
The hearts were not part of the original design.
I love this quilt and was planning to hand quilt it someday.
I still think it deserves the hand stitching of some kind.
There were lot of emotions that had gone into it while I worked on the top.
It was my second or third quilt top and I was so proud that I had figured it all out from the picture!
They are the colors of the traditional bridal-wear in India.
I wore them when I got married to my husband.
White stands for purity and red for the good luck!
I love this combination!
Taryn has set up a virtual Red and White Quilts exhibit.
Although, I don't own an antique quilt, this is my little contribution to the collection.
Go check it out!
You will be happy that you did!
