A Red and White Tribute

I finished the binding this weekend on
my "Red and White Tribute Quilt".
Even thought I wasn't able to attend the "Big"
show in NYC, I wanted to 
make my own quilt 
to be part of the red and white tribute.

Finishing any quilt is a red letter day.
This is in fact is a perfect "red and white" letter day.

The pattern I used is called North Winds.
I love the graphics that the simple patterns create.
The red and white make it so crisp.
I used the Kona Rich Red
and the Kona Snow for the blocks.

The quilting was done by a fantastic local machine quilter, Karen A.
Her specialty and trademark are feathers and
I always have her include them.

I choose a small red dot fabric for the back.
I wanted something more than just a solild
It adds some interest yet, the quilting show up perfectly.
 It's light enough not to have any the print show
through all the white on the front.

These two color quilts never seem to go out of style.
I'm ready to enjoy mine for a long time.
The only problem is now
that I have more red fabric and plenty of white.
What pattern should I choose next!
I'm thinking about it, a simple nine patch,
pineapple, pinwheel,...

Until Next Time-
