I've had this quilt on my to-do list for over three years, when my mother and I saw it on "Simply Quilts." I bought the fabric and the Tri-Recs rulers last summer...and yet it still took another year to get it made.
I'm so glad I finally did it! I love the way the blocks flow. it's such a simple quilt with a lot of visual impact.
Red: Bonnie Blue Basics by Paula Barnes (Marcus)
Blue: Itsy Bits by Renee Nanneman (Andover)
Dark Neutral: Prairie Paisley by Minick & Simpson (Moda)
Light Neutral: Essentials (Wilmington Prints)
Binding: Tribute by American Valor
Paula quilted it with an all-over pattern, which shows up very well on the neutral flannel back.
I did the binding with some red piping. I prefer machine stitching binding this way - I think it looks nicer than top stitching. And it's definitely faster than hand sewing!
It measures 70" square and is off to Virginia for my mother's 60th birthday - and I'm accompanying it!
