It's February, the month of love, so I thought I would share some of the things I love about quilting. As many of you know, I have been quilting for more than 35 years. I've seen and tried a lot of things to make the quilting process fun. I'll share some of the tools, techniques and yes - even some mistakes - that have helped me through the years. So let's get started.
I love to choose fabric, and red is one of my favorites. Most reds can be combined to make great looking quilts. A red and cream or red and white quilt will brighten up any living space. Scrappy red quilts are just fun. Don't forget that a red center in a log cabin signifies the chimney, the warm center of the home. Holiday Houndstooth is just one of the quilts in the Six Halves Make a Whole series of patterns, Do you have 3 reds, 3 taupes and a background?.
Maybe your next trip to the fabric store will include picking out some reds for your stash. Please share your favorite red quilt.
Lots more love to share soon.
