Red Quilt Finished

I really really love this one. It turned out even better than I thought it would, I think its all the polka dots that won me over. I used a solid cream sheet for the back, and I’m not sure what the binding fabric is called, but its a pretty muted red that isn’t too bright. I did simple quilting, just straight stitching 1/4” from the seams to frame in the triangles. It was hard to smoosh the quilt under my machine doing those angled seams, and I certainly got a workout. Which is good since I’ve been sitting on my bum for two days.

    I think your quilts are so beautiful. I am constantly amazed at how fast you turn out a quilt. I do have a question… your binding looks so much smaller than mine, so I was wondering how wide to you cut your strips?

    What a beautiful quilt! I think everyone needs a good red quilt in the house somewhere!

    Gorgeous! How many different reds did you use?

    Great work chicky! And your hubby sounds very close to mine – I was taking up the entire living room last night to spray baste, and he wasn't exactly happy with that. And I don't know why there is a delay to get blog posts in google reader – I've noticed that too (people will twitter their post, but it takes a bit to show up in reader)

    Oh Wow! That is just absolutely PHENOMINAL! Love it, love it, love it!

    It's such a gorgeous quilt! Bravo!

    Btw my husband's been fired from quilt holding too for the exact same reason. I use hangers and the door now… they don't tend to talk back!

    Beautiful! I love the tan linen.

  9. Goddess in Progress June 24, 2009 at 5:30 pm #

    Looks beautiful! I love that, while you might not instantly jump to tan as the solid to put with red prints, it works so wonderfully and gives it such a nice, muted feeling.

    I really love this. I'm not that keen on red usually, but you really worked it well! And the polka-dots get me too!

    Thanks for your nice blog comments, I really appreciate them! I've been admiring your blog for a long time, you're a big inspiration for me. I absolutely love all of your quilts!! I really love this one, I've been thinking of doing a plain red and white quilt sometime soon. Another fave is the orange and white. I love the 9-patch you're working on too!
    Ok, so I just checked the Ikea website and I don't see that cabinet either and now I'm totally having a heart attack b/c I was planning to buy it when we moved. I may just have to run down to the store and see if they have any there because I REALLY wanted it! They've also changed the bedroom furniture I wanted and now I don't like the new color. UGH! I guess I just need to learn that if I really want something, I'd better just buy it when it's there.
    Have a great day and I will definitely be checking back often and I'd love to have you read my blog too!

    The quilt is truly lovely. I admire the triangle quilting. I thought about that for one and realized how much turning I had to do and decided against it. Kudos to you!

  32. Trisha June 25, 2009 at 12:57 am #

    Oh, Allison! It is wonderful! I love two color quilts and I am partial to red. I love the scappiness and the simplicity of the design. Love it!

    It is beautiful! I love red and white quilts. The tan/cream offset to the red really makes this quilt *pop* Congrats :D

    The question of the feed taking an hour ~ I am not super knowledgable in feeds yet but, I believe I saw a setting with the defualt setting being an hour.

    I love your red quilt. May I ask what is the name of your red polka dot with white background fabric is called? I think I will put that on my list of things to make next.
