Finally pictures of the shirtings quilt I teased a couple of weeks ago. This quilt was made from a bundle of fabric the shop put together for the Retreat participants. We needed a few samples of projects to make with the kits, so I came up with this one.
I’ve always really liked the traditional Churn Dash block and the red and white contrast is always classic. Makes for a pretty traditional quilt. And it makes me feel so ‘au courant‘ (snobbish for “hip”) with the recent Red and White quilt show in NY last weekend.
Here’s the back. I used some micro-dots and a cute French General print to piece the back. I love the little detail stripe from the French General selvage edge.
See? Red and White – can’t go wrong. I wish I could have gone to the Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts show in New York last weekend. Looks so fabulous. You can see a lot of pictures and links to other posts at Pat Sloan’s Red and White blog.
I’m planning to make a crib size quilt using this same method out of more modern fabrics. When I get that done, I’ll publish the pattern with both options.
