Red and White Scrappy Quilt

I started this quilt about a week ago.  I used a lot of my red and white scraps.  The whites are three different fabrics, but I think it works.

Our weather has been unusual, lots of wind and rain, so I couldn't take any natural light photos,  I folded both the top and quilt back to showcase the red patches.  I'll take better photos when I get it back from my long arm quilter.


For the quilt top, I put all the red patches in a center panel.  The lei is from my Aunt Vickie's 80th birthday.  We had a full luau, with a roasted pig cooked overnight in the ground.


This close-up shows the different whites I used, all scraps.


For the back I turned some rectangular patches into two hearts.  They're centered and offsett.

May your bobbins always be full,

  2. I really like your reds and white quilt. I'm pretty sure the picture doesn't show off the full effect of having different "white" shades...it makes the quilt sparkle. The back is really awesome!
