What's Black, White and Red?

Well, it’s a modified log cabin quilt with cats wearing red Santa helper hats, what else? This was a busy quilt with several b & w fabrics. The little spark of the cats in red Santa hats really made this fun to quilt. Allison made it for a neighbor kid’s wedding present. Their colors are black/white/red. Ali noticed a customer’s feather meander quilt as I was dropping it off at the LQS. She loved the puffiness and flow of the feathers. I love that Suzanne Earley Meandering Magic book, it makes it so easy. She changed her mind from white thread to black. I used Signature cotton black top and bobbin. The backing is pieced from scraps of black/white/red. The batting is Quilter’s Dream Puff.

No comments:

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
