The holiday season has come and gone with nary a word from me....
but I did manage a quilt finish just before the clock struck midnight and we all said goodbye to 2015...
A scrappy Red and White quilt with stars and a pieced border...
I used a set of templates purchased from Amazon. The Simpli EZ Five Point Star set. Instead of squaring off the star, I chose to applique the the star 'circle' onto my background square.
Then I added sashing and corner blocks. And finished the piecing off with a pieced border.
This one is machine quilted, as well as, hand quilted with some Christmas Red Valdani Perle cotton!
It's not huge, but a good lap size for our chilly Ohio winters (if Mother Nature decides to grant us some chilly Ohio weather)
It's good to have a 2015 finish...and a new blog post for 2016!
Wishing you all a wonderfully productive New Year!

A lovely seasonal quilt – I like the red and white candy cane striped star best. Hope you get some suitably cold weather soon!ReplyDelete
Love it----Especially the low volume fabrics. So fresh and clean looking!ReplyDelete
This quilt rings 'retro' with a great modern spin. The fabric choices are great, and I like the white triangles in the border to add a little fun. Happy New Year!ReplyDelete
Saw bits of this over on IG. Love it with the gingham ; )ReplyDelete
Love, love, love. I just so want to make a red and white quilt, and this one is just perfect! Some day...ReplyDelete
There is something irresistible with the classic red/white or blue/white combination! Coupled with your fine piecing and stitching, this is a really charming little quilt! Well done! And Happy New Year!ReplyDelete
It is a wonderful quilt. Looks cozy to wrap up in- we are having cold weather in NE! Glad you are back!ReplyDelete
Beautiful finish, love the stars settings and the colors.ReplyDelete
It's wonderful! Your variety of value in the reds makes it playful and interesting. I always love your quilts!ReplyDelete
Such a sweet little quilt Mary! I'm guessing your 1800+ followers have missed you!ReplyDelete
Love this! Is it your own pattern? I think this would look nice in patriotic colors too :)ReplyDelete
Red and white is always a winner. I like the random changes of fabric in the border to make it all more interesting.ReplyDelete
