Red & White Patchwork Quilt


I've been hiding this one for a few weeks.  Trying to decide if I was keeping it or adding it to my etsy shop.  Well, practicality (and perhaps the guilt of a small purchase of a new bed and mattress for the master bedroom - yeah me!) won the day.



You may have seen this picture from Instagram.  I love how the sunlight sneaks through the stair railing at the bottom of the quilt.  The quilt finished up at 56 x 70 inches - perfect throw size!



I felt like crisscross quilting was ideal for this since the patchwork and the color scheme are so traditional.  The backing is Riley Blake's red on white Swiss dots.  I really really liked the scale of this print and I can see using it in different colors on lots of quilts.  Something about polka dots that ties together all kinds of crazy prints.



There are 20+ prints in this quilt.  I just kept digging through my stash and adding whatever I could find.



With all those prints and the polka dot back I thought the solid red binding was the way to go.

If you're interested you can find this beautiful quilt in my etsy shop.  Don't wait too long though my last red and white one sold quickly.
