Classic yet contemporary…

If you were a quilter in March of 2011, you will probably recognize this image.

Infinite Variety: Three Centuries of Red & White Quilts, the five-day show of Joanna Rose’s quilt collection at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City.  It was a spectacular display of 800 red and white quilts.  The color combination is an iconic one for quilts and quiltmakers, whether the fabrics are solids or prints.

To celebrate her love of these iconic two-color quilts, award-winning quilter, designer and historian, Linda Pumphrey has authored a gorgeous book Red & White Quilting: An Iconic Tradition in 40 Blocks.  Just so you know, Linda really knows her “stuff”… she’s served on several international and national boards, including that of the International Quilt Association, the International Quilt Study Center & Museum, and the Quilts, Inc. Advisory Council.  During her time working for Mountain Mist, the batting company, she acted as the curator of the Historical Mountain Mist Corporate Quilt Collection.

Drawing inspiration from the Red and White quilt collection at the International Quilt Study Center & Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska, the book presents forty quilt blocks and fourteen quilt projects inspired by the museum’s quilts.  Meaning… this is Red & White Quilt Block book and a Red & White Quilt Project book.  It doesn’t get any better than that!

This is Drinking Party – it combines a Drunkard’s Path block with a Sunburst Block.

Note:  All images from the book have been generously provided by F+W Media.  (I whined.)

In addition to the gorgeous blocks and quilts, I love that the history of red fabrics – Turkey Reds – is provided.  A Foreward by Deborah Roberts, a noted quilt and textile historian provides the history of the fabrics, and a Preface by Carolyn Ducey, Curator of Collections at the International Quilt Study Center & Museum, provide a subtext to the enduring popularity of this classic color combination.  Linda’s Introduction continues that.

Oak Leaf Block.

As with any really really good quilt book, there is an excellent chapter on Tools & Techniques. It includes Linda’s list of go-to supplies and sections with advice on Choosing Fabric, Pre-washing or Not Pre-washing , Making Blocks, Pressing, Choosing Batting and Measuring.  Since one of my hobbies is “picking the minds” of quilters, especially those that know as much about quilting as Linda does, I particularly liked this part of the book.  I always learn something.

My favorite line is – There is more than one way to accomplish the same result.

You had to know this Sawtooth Block would be one of my favorites.

The chapter on The Blocks is excellent.  It includes a little history of each block, the size, Materials Required, Cutting Instructions and Block Assembly.  Pictures of quilts and projects are interspersed throughout.

Oak Reel Block.  For the book, the blocks were appliquéd with a popcorn/star stitch or blanket stitch.  Hand-appliqué is obviously an option.

Unnamed Block.  (Another one of my favorites because of all those triangles.)

Ring Around the Rosy.  This is a 52″ wall-hanging that combines Oak Reel Blocks with a Wagon Wheel Block.

Starry Flower Garden – this quilt measures 80″ square.  It combines Oak Reel and Flower Blocks with a Paper Cut Appliqué block, surrounded by an over-sized Ohio Star Block.

All of the blocks and almost all of the quilts in the book were pieced and/or appliquéd by Linda, and the gorgeous machine-quilting was done by Karen Kielmeyer.  Mary Pumphrey snuck in a quilt.

Even if you have no interest in making a quilt using a solid red and a solid white, Red & White Quilting is an excellent addition to every quilter’s library.  Every one of the blocks and projects included could easily be made using prints in any style or color palette.  Including… blue and white.

To help at least one of you add this book to your library… we’re giving away a copy of Red & White Quilting and 3 yards each of the same Bella Solids Linda used for her quilts – Bella 16 – Christmas Red and Bella 200 – Off White.

Simply leave a comment by Midnight on Sunday, October 15 telling us if you’ve ever made a red and white quilt.  Did you use solids?  Or prints?

Happy Tuesday!

  3. I love, love red and white quilts, and yes, I have made a couple myself!

  4. Nancy Tuer says:

    I am making a Sarah’s Revival quilt in red and white. The reds are a mixture of different red prints on a white background. I love red and white quilts and would love to win this book. Thanks for the chance

  5. Vicki Harrell says:

    I have a Lady of the Lake in progress. Hope to finish it one day. I will never forget the first time I saw this exhibit on line. I was awe struck. Thanks for all the info in this post.

  6. I have always admired 2 colour quilts, but haven’t been brave enough to try one. With only 2 colours I think every mistake will show! They should always be solid colours in my mind.

  7. Kristina Morrow says:

    I hand not (yet) made a two color quilt, but red and white is certainly appealing.

  8. Terry says:

    I have never made a red and white quilt. They are stunning.

  9. Leta Privette says:

    Making a red and white quilt is on my to do list! Let

  10. Karen Seitz says:

    I’m making one now — Joanna Figueroa’s Red and Cream BOM which is mostly prints.

  11. Karen McMahon says:

    I have made a couple small red and white quilts. My favorite being a schoolhouse one. They always look so stunning. Thanks for the chance to win.

  12. Theresa Kifer says:

    I have not made a red and white quilt yet but I would love to. Its on my list for this coming year. I sm getting ideas and plans now. The perfect pattern has not come my way yet..

  13. Pam DiPadova says:

    My favorite color is red. I just love it. The book looks beautiful. Thanks for chance. I just signed up for Fig Tree’s Red & White Sampler BOM starting next month and she uses lots of charming Moda prints!

  14. Susan Gray says:

    I have made a few red and white quilts.i love them- especially after that show at the NY Armory- truly memorable. I don’t think that I will make quite that many,after all, I don’t have 300 years to do it.LOL

  15. paulette says:

    Currently making a red, cream & white quilt – all solids. I do like the red & white quilts for the effect it gives because of just 2 colors & the brightness. Hope to win

  16. Betsy says:

    I have not made a red and white quilt….yet. This book sounds like it has all the information and patterns to start making one. The fabrics would be the icing on the cake. Thanks for the chance to win!

  17. Sandy A in St. Louis says:

    I have a two color quilt on my “to do” list. I was thinking pink and white, but love these red and white quilts. I think I have changed my mind!

  18. Marianne says:

    My very first quilt was red and white. The book I found the pattern in said it was “easy for beginners.” “Night and Day” was anything but easy, and in the days of cardboard templates and polyester, it took quite a long time to cut out the skewed triangles. My hand quilting was pretty bad at the beginning, but after many years, it shows real improvement. I still have the quilt – it wears like iron because it is polyester through and through!

  19. Amy says:

    Red is my favorite color and I’m actually working on a red and white quilt now. This book looks to be a real keeper!

  20. Susan says:

    I love red and white quilts! I’ve made a red and cream quilt but never red and white. I typically use prints but loved using the solids on the Moda Building Blocks quilt and I’d love another go with a solids quilt.

  21. Jackie Stevens says:

    No, I have never made a red and white quilt. This book Must be a treat to read and use. In spite of my seventy two years, I am rather new to quilting.

  22. Lynne Bouchard says:

    I have made a red and white quilt using mostly prints and embroidered the white blocks. Thank s for a chance to win!!

  23. Fran Anderson says:

    I have not made a ted and white quilt but I love how they look! I would like to make one mixing both solid and some tone on tone prints!! That book is amazing!!!

  24. Cherri says:

    Although I have never made a red & white only quilt I think they are beautiful. I have made one that has red, white and black!

  25. Diana says:

    I have not made one that is strictly red and white. I did do a curved log cabin quilt that was red and beige.

  26. Tammi Williams says:

    My mother has a 2 color quilt made by her Grandmother, blue & white Drunkards Path. There is something so calming and simultaneously exciting about 2 color quilts. I’ve made 2 in my ‘quilt life’.

  27. Phyllis Brown says:

    I have never made a red and white quilt and that is odd because red is my favorite color. I’ve certainly thought about it but just have never gotten around to doing one. Love the ones shown in this post!

  28. Susan R. says:

    I have not as of yet. I have done red and white embroidery. This is a wonderful book – love it and thanks for the chance to win it! Gorgeous!

  29. Denise says:

    Red is my fav color … a red and white quilt has been on my bucket list for a while… every time you post something red and white I move it up the list… can’t wait to get to it… I do have an antique red and white HST quilt hanging on a wal ❤️

  30. Deborah from valpo says:

    I have collected fabric for a red white quilt using prints but that is as far as I have gotten

  31. Maureen Pierson says:

    I made a red and white house quilt over 20 years ago. It is still one of my favorites.

  32. Kristin S says:

    I have not yet made a red & white quilt. Thanks for the chance to win!

  33. Anita Roy says:

    As a 12+ gallon blood donor, that RED is just one of my favorites…I can feel my heart pumping just looking at those beautiful pictures in the book. I’ve used lots of solids, but not red&white quilt…YET!

  34. Barbara says:

    I love red and white quilts but I especially love red and white quilts with a bit of green thrown in like the pomegranate block, it may be because I love quilts used to decoratie at Christmas. Thank you for an interesting article, I will have to get that book!

  35. Jan B. says:

    Love red & white quilts almost as much as blue & white quilts. I made a red& white & black quilt a few years ago. It’s sitting in my huge stack of unquilted tops. Love the new book! Thanks for the chance to win it. ☺️

  36. Danette says:

    I have not made a red and white quilt yet. I will add it to my last after seeing all of these! Thank you, peterstankovich@comcast.net

  37. Karen Addleman says:

    I’ve been collecting (stashing,curating) red fabrics for quite a while. Hope to make use of them soon.

  38. Judyk says:

    I have great plans to do a red and white Christmas quilt but so far quilts for everybody else keep jumping ahead! You know the old saying about the cobbler and his shoes–I guess I’m going to have to make me a priority one of these days so I am not quiltless (Haha)

  39. Sue says:

    Yes, have made two color quilts and they are striking/powerful. Love them. And, two-color quilts have a very modern feel and fit right into the modern movement of today. Wish I could have seen the exhibit. I can always use more fabric!

  40. Bridget says:

    I made a red and white scrappy log cabin quilt and used fabrics my friend picked (and I never would have). I love it! Now that my friend has passed I also cherish it. I have plans to make another red and white quilt, and a blue and white quilt.

  41. Grandma Sue says:

    Thank you for “reliving” that magnificent show with us all. There is something to be said about the simplicity of a two color quilt – and simple does not mean boring. Design is strongest when there are fewer complications, namely color choices, print choices, scale of fabric print, etc.

    Making myself a navy and white quilt has been on my list for a while. Maybe I will change that to red and white.

  42. Anne-Maree Matthews says:

    Love old red and white quilts and it’s on the list to make one for me. I’m sure the book Red and White Quilting would inspire me to start now!

  43. Deb G. in VA says:

    I love red and white quilts, but I’ve never made one. Still on my bucket list!

  44. oneloopshy says:

    I have not, but would like to do a Christmas quilt using red and white prints! Gorgeous photos . . . thanks gorgeous this post!

  45. Deborah Dority says:

    each time I see a red and white quilt I think why haven’t I made one yet!?!!?!!! This book sounds wonderful!

  46. Sally says:

    Red is my favorite color and I love a red and white quilt. I made one, sort of, but would love to make a solid red and white quilt. They are gorgeous!!

  47. Esther says:

    Thanks, Carrie .. wonderful post and love your sense of humor! Have never made a red and white quilt but it is on my bucket list … a red and white school house quilt. Recently viewed a school house quilt in reds and blues … might just change my mind!

  48. Amanda Ashton says:

    I made a red and white Kaleidoscope wall hanging for my stairwell. I used prints with a white solid. I made it years ago but I still love it!

  49. Jean says:

    Enjoyed your article, red and white quilts are beautiful.

  50. Roxanne Sposato says:

    I made a R & W Log Cabin Quilt using both solids and prints. I must say it was harder choosing and auditioning fabrics then I thought it would be. I love this quilt and it’s one of my favorites to this day. Thanks for the beautiful pics and the insight on the book.

  51. Anne says:

    I am planning to make one so winning this would be fab! Thank you for the chance! I very much like how two-color quilts give the blocks and the piecing a perfect stage. It seems to be the perfect way to display different shapes and needlework, so I would love to make one. Haven’t yet, though.

  52. Mary Kastner says:

    BOy I didn’t see this book coming. What a beauty! Think this is a must have for my library. Thank you for the chance to win a copy.

  53. Deanna Bowman says:

    A two color quilt has always been on my bucket list. I use mostly prints, but some solids. Beautiful quilts.

  54. Elizabeth Dyer says:

    I have never made a red and white quilt, although red is my favorite color. I will make a red and white quilt yet and it will be for myself. Thank you for the chance to win the book and the Bella solids.

  55. Darlene H says:

    Lovely book. Red and white is so classic together. I am currently working on the 150 Canadian women quilt in red and whites. I am using solids and prints.

  56. Patty says:

    Love the quilts. I was lucky to be in Houston for the 40th anniversary display of red and white quilts. I haven’t made one yet but it’s on my bucket list.

  57. Sandy says:

    I am currentlhy working on a red, white & taupe quilt but have plans to do a red & white. They make stunning quilts.

  58. Vicki Hillmer says:

    I love red and white quilts but never have I made a totally red and white one! My quilting BFF, Linda, is the all time red and white quilt lover. She has several, from mini quilts to bed quilts, that she displays in her home. I think this book would be a great Christmas gift for her, don’t you?

  59. I started a r/w quilt with schoolhouse blocks. While I’ve never completed a r/w quilt, I’ve always been fascinated with these beautiful quilts. Someday, someday…..

  60. Jody Randall says:

    Oh my, I love 2-color quilts and this book looks like a beautiful read! So wish I could have seen the quilt show in NY. I never tire of looking at the show photos. Thanks to the give away and Congrats to whomever wins!!

  61. Cathy Fennell says:

    Yes, I made a red and white quilt using all prints. I love the crispness of the red against the white. Really want to make another one.

  62. Julie says:

    A few years ago I made a wall hanging using a 24″ Carpenter’s Wheel block. I used tone on tone red and white fabrics. The book looks like it would be a great addition to my collection. Thank you for the opportunity.

  63. stephanie woodward says:

    I have made a red and white quilt for charity and plan to make another and call it MINE. I love the color combination.

  64. Ann West says:

    I have plans to work on a red and white Christmas quilt in the near future. This book would be a wonderful addition to my library. Thanks.

  65. gailss1 says:

    I missed that show and was very sad as it was a remarkable…..I would love to make a red & white quilt but as of yet not done so….closest is the red and cream I am working no but not the same!
    Thanks

  66. Carolyn Sands says:

    I have made a red and white quilt from Bella solids. It’s one of my favorites! More two color quilts are in my future too.

  67. Libby says:

    I have never made a red and white quilt; although it has been on my mind since 2011 when I first saw
    pictures of this red and white collection. Thank you for all the information in this blog, especially the red and white color info you provided. And yes, this book is going to be in my collection!

  68. Cathy W. says:

    I have made lots of quilts but never a red and white one.

  69. Arlene Head says:

    I’ve done Redwork embroidery but never a red and white quilt. How beautiful. Now I have added another “to do” to my list.

  70. Vicky says:

    I started a red and white quilt once, and chickened out! I added green florals to make it a Christmas quilt. Need to circle back around to making a R/W!

  71. Lissa Rogers says:

    I adore red and white quilts, they are at the top of my someday list. I originally began collecting red print fat quarters for a scrappy version, but lately I am drawn to the solid red and white. I love your posts, Carrie! It always makes me smile to find one in my mailbox. Thanks for all your inspiration!

  72. Marilyn Goehl says:

    I’m currently doing some redwork Christmas embroidery. I think I need to ‘surround’ it with a red and white quilt!

  73. dariadesigns says:

    I recently bought RED & WHITE QUILTS – INFINITE VARIETY by Elizabeth V. Warren and this would be an awesome companion book! Looking forward to making my first Red & White Quilt!

  74. Cathy B. says:

    I’m a relatively new quilter and haven’t yet had the chance to make a red & white quilt. Think I need a bigger bucket for my bucket list!

  75. Mary says:

    Always wanted to make a red and white quilt…love them…just never did because I did not know what red fabric to use, what background, would the red bleed and so forth, and could not find the information out there.

  76. debbierhodes says:

    I made a red and white Quilt using a small,print for my mother in law

  77. Patty Archuleta says:

    I have made a red and white quilt. It was a scrappy miniature.

  78. Sue says:

    I have always loved red/white quilts but have yet to make one. I have decided when I am done with my current project, my first red/white quilt will be next. The book would help me pick one out to make.

  79. Kyra Franz says:

    I have made two red and white wall quilts using a variety of red prints and cream-with-red prints. It’s a beautiful combination!

  80. Karen L Chaudoin says:

    This must be a thrilling book to see. I would love to have seen the display of all of the red and white quilts. I must rival blue and white quilt displays and certainly I wouldn’t be able to choose which is best. It would be amazing to see both colors on display together. Oh, I hope I win this book. I so like quilts done with minimal changes of fabrics!

  81. Barbara says:

    I’m so sorry I didn’t get to see the exhibit in New York. I haven’t yet made a red and white quilt.

  82. Kerry says:

    I adore red and white quilts! They make such a statement! I made a small red and white Christmas topper a
    Few years ago and am hoping to follow up with a larger version. Thanks for the chance to win a great book!

  83. Deb Mac says:

    I have never made a red and white quilt but one is on the list. Red is my favorite color so if the fabric in a quilt is mostly blues or just in general doesn’t appeal to me, I always try to envision it in reds/white. I have done a two color quilt in rose and olive green solid.

  84. Janice Joyner says:

    When I saw the Infinitely Variety display I was smitten by the beauty of the red and white quilts. In addition, it evoked sadness that I had been quilting for 20 years and didn’t own one! So, I got busy and made three and plan to make more. Two used red prints with solid white and one was all solids. They are among my favorite quilts.

  85. Amy L says:

    I have made red and white mini quilts – Christmas ornaments actually – and gifted them to friends. It would be wonderful making a large one.

  86. Sally Christiansen says:

    I have not made a red and white quilt but I would like to. What beautiful inspiration!

  87. Kathy Decker says:

    This book looks wonderful. I’ve never made a red and white quilt, but think I need to!

  88. Joy Dickson says:

    I’ve always wanted to make a red and white quilt. These are all stunning. What temptation to finally take the plunge.

  89. Elizabeth White says:

    I adore two color quilts – but have never made a red and white. Maybe someday — right now my list of projects is long- long-long

  90. Renee M. says:

    I made a kind of maroon red and off-white quilt called Winners Circle many years ago. The fabric was a small pretty print. I hand quilted it. I still love hand quilting! It is a bit worn and faded now. It is on a quilt rack in my living room where I see it every day.

  91. Rita says:

    I have a red and white block made and hanging on the wall, just have not got around to making the whole quilt. Some day

  92. Four dogs and one quilter says:

    I have never made a red and white quilt. Would love to win this book to give me ideas and a place to start on one of my own.

  93. Shelly Z says:

    That looks like a wonderful book. I LOVE red and white quilts! I’ve not yet made one, but it is on my list of upcoming projects.

  94. Kay Hunzinger says:

    I have made one king size double ninepatch quilt in red and white. I love this quilt. Have made a few small quilts in same combo and several where I included green along with red and white.

  95. Mary Etherington says:

    Have made several red and white quilts which I display during the Christmas season. I try to do a new one every few years – it’s time.

  96. Diane says:

    I’ve never made a red and white quilt. On my bucket list is the red and white school house quilt. I just might have to put my project first.

  97. Mary on Lake Pulaski says:

    I have most of the blocks for a red and white quilt ready – just need a few more. I used all solids.

  98. Jocelyn says:

    Wow what beautiful designs. The only quilt I ever was commissioned to make was a red and white School house quilt. I’ve always wanted to make one for myself. Maybe this would be the catalyst to get me started 🙂

  99. Marsha Sensel says:

    I’m currently working on several redwork embroidery blocks that I plan to set in a red and white quilt. This book and fabric would sure help me get it finished.

  100. Judy L says:

    I am lucky to have one of my mother-in-law’s red/white quilt that must be 60 years old. Love the 2-color options.

  101. Nancy Ciminello says:

    I have never made a red and white quilt but it is definitely on my bucket list. My collection of red fabric just keeps growing and growing!

  102. Linda in PA says:

    I made a red and white triple Irish chain quilt for my daughter and son-in-law when they got married. It is made with prints.

  103. Cave Creek Maggie says:

    Arizona Quilter’s Guild is celebrating their 40th Anniversary (Ruby) at the show in March, 2018. We’ve been invited to make a red and white quilt to help celebrate. I’ve been gathering fabric, so, yes a red and white quilt (wall hanging) is in my future!

  104. Glenda Britten says:

    I’ve made red and white quilts – using a solid red and multiple white on white fabrics. I would love to make another.

  105. Janna says:

    My red and white quilt is my current favorite. Lost of different reds and whites, solids and prints.

  106. Carmen Goldstein says:

    Ive been collecting red and white fabric for a long time to make a quilt. Red is my favorite color

  107. Sheila Symanski says:

    I have been inspired by the red and white quilt show and looking for the perfect pattern. I am planning on using Jen Kingwells Long Time Gone and all the red and whites I have collected.

  108. Emily says:

    I haven’t made a red and white, but two color quilts are my favorite. I love the simplicity and stunning results.

  109. Sandie says:

    Does it count that I’ve been collecting the Minnick and Simpson Red collections to make one someday

  110. Martha Taylor says:

    Even though I love red, I have not made a total red and white quilt, just some Christmas blocks for a quilt; so this book would be an inspiration.

  111. I’ve made a couple of red and white quilts using mostly prints, but I love the classic look of the solids!

  112. Mary Neitzel says:

    This looks like a beautiful book. I love historical quilts and books about them, and hope to someday go to the International Quilt Study Museum in Nebraska. I have not made a red and white quilt yet, but would some day love to.

  113. Paulette M says:

    Making a red and white quilt with prints and it is gorgeous,

  114. Katherine S says:

    Have made a few red and white quilts but it may be time to make another! You can never have too many —

  115. vera schmidt says:

    Haven’t made a red and white quilt yet. I do love them and it’s on my “to do” list. This book is just what I may need for inspiration. Thanks for the opportunity to win it

  116. Robin says:

    I have been collecting red fabrics for the last FOUR YEARS in anticipation of making a king size quilt for MY bed! Winning this generous giveaway could just put me over the edge and I’d have no choice but to begin this project!

  117. Lori Thomas says:

    I have made one red and white quilt and just love it. I like two color quilts for their clean look, your not distracted by all the different colors. The book looks amazing!

  118. Lerlene B Nevaril says:

    I made my first red and white quilt in the 1980s – hand appliqued and hand quilted houses. Then I made a basket quilt using 1930s red and white prints. Love the color combination.

  119. Martha Fast says:

    I’ve never made a red and white quilt. I was always afraid of the color bleeding onto the white. Thank you for the informative article. This book could change my mind about red and white quilts.

  120. sandi says:

    I just ordered some red and white fabrics to make a two color quilt. I would love to win, thank you. Hugs,

  121. EllenB says:

    I, and my guild members, made R&W quilts for a show that we were participating in. The reactions to our quilts in one display were so complimentary and positive!

  122. Mary Gillette says:

    I was very lucky to be in NYC and see the show, it was overwhelming and magical. I am also lucky to have made a red and white quilt from a Judy Martin pattern which won a prize at a quilt show. I treasure it. Would love to win this. Thank you.

  123. Becky Black says:

    I would love to make a red and white quilt. I have a somewhat tattered one from my grandmother and simply love it.

  124. chrisknits says:

    Reminds me I have my own red and white quilt top to sandwich and stitch on! I love the contrast of these colors.

  125. Vicki Wayne says:

    While I’ve not made a RED & WHITE quilt, red seems to find it’s way into most of my quilts … usually accented with white and black.
    RED & WHITE is so beautiful! A RED & WHITE is on my “to do” list. <3.

  126. Caryn S says:

    I have never made a Red and White Quilt, but they are beautiful. I have made a red and purple wall hanging.

  127. MariLynn Bergmark says:

    Yes, I have used red and white in a quilt. It is an embroidered Sun Bonnet Sue “square in a square” with prints around it. Sadly, it is on the “allpeoplequilt.com” UFO list for 2017! Maybe the inspiration of “a win”, Sue might see completion this year!

  128. Char says:

    It’s on the top of my bucket list, just waiting for the perfect pattern. Wish I would have been able to see that exhibit, it looked magnificent!

  129. Sandra Laws says:

    No, not yet…but I’m dying to try one! They are so beautiful!

  130. Tracey says:

    I remember seeing this show online and being simply awe-struck!! Incredible display! Thanks for this chance.

  131. Suzy K says:

    I remember seeing this show when it was online.. GORGEOUS then and now… Never made a red and white quilt… on the someday list.

  132. quiltngal515 says:

    I purchased my first quilt, a red and white two color quilt, from a senior citizen in 1970. The quilter used a red print. It has always been a favorite quilt in my collection. Always thought I would make one like it. That red and white quilt was my daughter’s Boston terrier’s favorite snuggle quilt when they came to visit. Zoe has passed on, but oh the memories…

  133. Lynne Tilley says:

    I have never made a totally red & white only quilt. I’ve done one that included black. Just seeing that display picture above in NY inspires me to make a red/white one, though. Red is my favorite color!! Thanks so much for the chance to win the book.

  134. Sue says:

    I have never mader a red and white quilt, but have done a blue and white quilt, and a red and green quilt. Does that count?

  135. KayB says:

    Yes, I made a faceted gemstone quilt 2 or 3 years ago. I used mostly prints that read as solids.

  136. Angela J Short says:

    I haven’t made one yet! Enjoy your day! angielovesgary2 atgmail dotcom

  137. Beth T. says:

    I’m still collecting reds for a planned red-and-white quilt. This book will make it harder for me to choose a pattern!

  138. Nancy A says:

    I’ve made a couple miniature red and white quilts using prints. A large one using solids is on my bucket list. Thanks for the chance to win that fabulous book and fabric.

  139. Nancy Pleimann says:

    Never made a red and white quilt. I would love to. I might use a small red print. Looks like a great book. Nancy P.

  140. Kelly says:

    I made a red & white quilt using just solids for a baby some years ago… the quilt was inspired by Yoshiko Jinzenji’s minimal work, and I loved how it came out!

  141. Teri Hackett says:

    I made a red & white Christmas quilt for a family gift exchange one year, many years ago. It was fun, but hectic. I chose a feathered star pattern, which was a first for me, and almost beyond my capabilities. The Reds were dark brick color prints that look solid red. I have thought about making a red & white appliqué wall hanging quilt lately tho.

  142. dondim says:

    A red and white is definitely on my bucket list, that never ending bucket list. I have even hoarded a bunch of red and white prints. I will definitely need to get this book as I won one time in these drawings. No boo hoo for me because someone else is the winner and I have a very happy life. I am always glad to enter again. There is always a next time. I did win a pair of cool scissors once that were very short. I gave them to a friend who is almost a little person. I so wanted to keep them, but my friend could never have purchased them on her tiny budget. Then when I gave them to her, I felt so good inside because the selfish me needed to give. Thank you so much for sharing this great story and the gorgeous pictures. This would be such a great quilt to start in dark, cold, snowy January!

  143. Cindy K says:

    I have made one red and white quilt using prints. It was a scrappy quilt. A red and white quilt using solids is on my bucket list.

  144. Cheryl Buchanan says:

    I am currently working on a Redwork quilt with snowmen. The entire quilt will be red and white. I am excited about completing this project and displaying it for Christmas.

  145. Pat Spurgeon says:

    I participated in a red & white block exchange – my finished quilt is beautiful and displayed around Valentine’s Day every year!

  146. Vicki Sprain says:

    I am, ahem, currently working on a red and white quilt. (“Currently” means for the past 18 years…) With 9 very large Feathered Star blocks and a Delectable Mountains border, I have 7 blocks finished so far! I have used a red print and a tone on tone white and love how it looks so far!

  147. Coleen says:

    I’m re-doing my house in red and white. Thanks to a friend who said looking around my house “you like red” – so why not decorate that way.
    A red and white quilt would looks sooooo good in my house.

  148. Diane says:

    I never made a red and white quilt but, it is on my bucket list. Thanks for the hint to use an off white with the red.

  149. Kay Mccaffery says:

    I made 3 red & white quilts in the last couple of years. 2 have redwork embroidery with pieced blocks & the other is a medallion with a basket in the center I used different red & white prints in all of them.

  150. Diana W. says:

    I made a red and white quilt for my Inlaws 50th wedding anniversary, I used solids. I also made one for me but it was prints and scrappy! My daughter has it now. I need to make another one to keep for me. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  151. Brenda says:

    I love red and white quilts. I followed Sentimental Stitches’ on line quilt program for over a year and completed the 100 block quilt, which was based on the show in New York. I consider it one of my best quilts.

  152. Marsha Bohling says:

    I saw the red & white quilt display at Houston’s Jubilee Show. I loved it! I have made 2 small red & white quilts since then and have plans for several more. I would love the book!

  153. Debra says:

    I have a red and white on my list of quilts to make. I would like to mix of red prints with solid reds. And mix white and tone on tone whites…..looking forward to the opportunity to win.

  154. Sharon says:

    I have a red and white sampler quilt in progress using prints. And I am also making the Fig Tree Red and White Sampler BOM from 2016, which is not complete yet. Love both of them. Would love to win this book!

  155. Loretta Waterman says:

    I’ve been collecting red fabrics for almost as long as I’ve been Quilting (almost 30 years) but have not made a red and white only quilt yet. This book looks amazing!

  156. Carla J says:

    Oh, my, goodness! This is too good so appreciate the hard work that went into the book. Looking forward to adding it to my library. Thank you!

  157. Sally Ann says:

    This book would definitely inspire me to make a red and white quilt!

  158. Annette F. says:

    Yes, I have made several red and white quilts. One large one w/yoyos and a couple of doll sized using heart blocks. All were made w/printed fabrics. Red and white is one of the best combinations, it just POPS!

  159. Pris Phillips says:

    I too have been collecting red and white fabrics for as long as I’ve been quilting. I have a nice stash and I’ve had fabrics set aside for a few years now, for a red and white quilt I plan to make in memory of my Daddy. He was a logger and red was his favorite color. ❤️

  160. Sandy Tyson says:

    A red and white quilt has always been on my quilty bucket list! Looking forward to getting inspiration from this book!

  161. Laurel says:

    I have not made a red and white quilt but have been thinking about it often ever since I first saw the photograph of red and whites at the top of your post. This book sounds amazing!

  162. Lynda H says:

    I have had a red and white quilt in my head for some time now, have even collected a stash of red solids in many hues with the idea of switching it up a bit – using off white or snow for the background even cream in lieu of stark white. Looks like I just need a kick start.

  163. Colleen Coffman says:

    I have made one red & white quilt, and I love it. I used a variety of prints in each of the colorways. Would love to make another one, but the hard part is choosing which one!

  164. Patty F says:

    I’ve made a red/cream/taupe pineapple block quilt using French General fabrics.
    I would have loved to have seen the showing of Joanna Rose’s collection!

  165. Dana Asselyn says:

    I love red and white quilts. I was so disappointed that I missed the Exhibit in NY City. I keep hoping that it will be done again. I did purchase the “Red and White Quilts, Infinite Variety” book when it came out and would love to add this one to my library!

  166. Karren says:

    I just completed a red and white quilt — been on my list ever since I saw pictures of the red and white quilt exhibit.

  167. Ashley says:

    I’ve never made a red and white quilt but would love to!

  168. Michele Klein says:

    I’ve made several red and white quilts using solids and prints. The latest is a Dresden plate using red and white prints. My favorite combination. I would have loved to seen that exhibit.

  169. Terri U says:

    I have made a red and white wall hanging and i used solid background and a very small red and white print. It is one that I get out for Christmas and then hold out through Valentines. I purchased the Red and White Quilts, Infinite Variety Book for my mom.

  170. Mandy Laseter says:

    I’ve never made a red and white quilt. The oak leaf applique block calls to me, though. My mind starts to wander and dream of an applique project in my future.

  171. Teri says:

    I have not made a red and white quilt. I did one with red,white and black. We had an old red and white quilt in our house when we were little. No one knew where it had come from.

  172. Karen Keeler says:

    Yes, I made a mini feathered star using both solid reds and scrappy red prints with the white.

  173. Janice says:

    The only red and white I have made was with my sisters as we made an aunt’s quilt for a niece’s February wedding. It was so beautiful that I’ve always wanted to make one for myself, but since all my quilts end up elsewhere, I’ll have to wait for awhile longer.

  174. Pat says:

    I’ve considered several red and white quilts, but somehow they always turn into blue and white quilts.

  175. Becky S says:

    I haven’t made a red and white quilt, but one is on my very long list!

  176. Lindi Overton says:

    I’ve never made one, but would love to do so.

  177. Adrienne Cleave says:

    A miniature only but I plan on making a collection to hang together.

    • Ronna Hammel says:

      Love two color quilts! I made a red/white lone star quilt for my son in law while he was in Afghanistan. Absolutely love it, now I need one too

  178. Audrey says:

    What a lovely lovely book! The blocks are fantastic. Thanks for a great giveaway opportunity! Audkateaster at gmail dot com.

  179. Sandra B says:

    I am currently making a red work Christmas quilt, which will have pieced blocks that will be red and white… It has turned into a long term project, and although I had hoped to at least have the top done by this Christmas, looks like I am now changing the goal to being completely finished by Christmas 2018…. I have always loved red and white quilts, and have amassed a stash of red fabrics, and white on white fabrics for the intended purpose of adding this to my ever growing quilt bucket list…. Would love to add a copy of this book to my quilt book library….

  180. amq97 says:

    **sigh** The enduring beauty of a red and white quilt just makes my heart sing. I’ll be adding her book to my Red & White quilts book collection. I’ve yet to make one, but that un-named block has me intrigued! You should have seen me turn my head sideways to figure out the construction — half square and squares — “sew” doable. Thank you for your hobby of “picking the minds” of quilters. I always learn so much from your posts. Hugs, Allison Bayer in Plano, Texas allon0711@yahoo dot com

  181. Terry Nixon says:

    I’ve made a double Irish chain in red and white, and have “Wednesday’s Best” by Cheri Saffiote-Payne in red and white cut out and ready to sew. Would love to win your book and fabric! Thanks!!

  182. Cathi says:

    I love red and white quilts and have made a couple myself, one large and one small. Both were made with a reed print that reads as a solid and a white on white. I’m planning to make more red and white quilts as I love the classic look of them.

  183. Joanne says:

    I haven’t yet made a red and white quilt but would love to. They are stunning! Thanks so much for the opportunity to win a copy of this amazing book.

  184. Cheran bee says:

    Actually I am starting a red and white goose in the pond quilt for myself for Christmas. I am really excited about it. The blocks will be set on point which makes them look completely different.

  185. Patsy says:

    I adore red and white quilts, but I’ve never made one. Winning the book and fabric would be terrific. Thank you for the opportunity.

  186. Sue Utech says:

    I just finished a red and white quilt. The center is off white with a variety of red fabric stars. The border is a slightly cream/white with red folk art flowers and birds. I used red rickrack for the stems trailing the flowers around the border. The flowers are a variety of reds just like the stars. I love it and so do my quilting friends.

  187. carol says:

    Love red and white quilts. I have always been afraid of the red bleeding on the white after I work so hard to make a quilt.

  188. Becky says:

    Never made a red and white quilt – but these are beautiful – will have to put on my “to do” list.
    Thanks for the chance of winning the book and fabric.

  189. Susan Kerkendall says:

    Have never made one but I love them

  190. Jill says:

    I haven’t made just a red and white quilt. I came close once…but had to add a mauve for shading purposes. I used a white with red toile print and the red was a tone in tone. I’ve wanted to do a red and white quilt since this exhibit all those years ago. I keep getting distracted by other projects. Maybe this book will be the inspiration tha I need!

  191. Janice McLaren says:

    I have made one red and white quilt with printed fabrics. I would love to win the giveaway, thanks.

  192. Sheila Beins says:

    Just now working on a red and white embroidered quilt. Background is a light grunge with patterned red and white prints four the borders. I love it!

  193. Jane says:

    I thought I had made a Red and White Quilt but only found a quilt I put together of a red & white solid border on Sun Bonnet Sue blocks that my Mother’s pieced. I would love to make Linda Pumphrey’s Ring around the Rosy and/or her Drinking Party quilt in red and white fabrics. Thanks for a chance to win Linda Pumphrey’s Red & White Quilting book and Christmas red and Bella 200 oft white
    fabrics.

  194. Ann Arnold says:

    Red and white quilts are stunning. Must put it on my to-do list.

  195. Diana Lentz says:

    Years ago I actually won red, white and print fabric blocks(Ohio Star) I was fortunate that my friends Sharyn Craig and Arlene Stamper helped me put it together. A wonderful lady named Corin hand quilted the quilt which happens to be one of my very favorite quilts.

    I would love to make a red and white quilt since it has been since the 1980’s last one was made.

  196. caroline rohrer says:

    I have pieced a red & white log cabin quilt. Blocks not sewn together as yet. I love red & use it in most of my quilts.

  197. Susan S says:

    I really like two color quilts, and red/white is my favorite combination. I’ve made several r/w quilts, and my red bin is still always overflowing.

  198. Melissa G. says:

    I have used a lot of red in my quilts but I have never made a red and white quilt (blue and white — yes). Our kitchen and family room were painted Chinese Lacquer Red — I LOVED it. I have not used solids. My first quilting teacher warned us that solids are not very forgiving & show every mistake. For some reason, I have not gotten past these words but the time is ripe for a change!

  199. Marsha says:

    Love Red and White quilts! So beautiful, I would love to make a Hawaiian appliqué of red on white using the chicken feet top stitch, maybe the ginger plant as inspiration for pattern! Thanks for the blog post, always gets my creative side going!

  200. Beth C. says:

    I adore red and white quilts. Almost every quilt I’ve made in the past five years has some red in it, but I’ve not tackled one with just red and white yet. My quilt bucket list has a red/white feathered star on it, but any red and white quilt would allow me to check this item off the list!

  201. My bucket list for projects is getting longer and longer. And each time I add another quilt project, I move the red and white quilt project to the top of the list. I’ll get there. I’ve made lots of blocks but have yet to kick it into gear to take this one on.

  202. Carol C says:

    I haven’t made a red and white quilt yet but it’s on my list. I have red prints and white/cream fabrics set aside but I would like to make one out of solids as well.

  203. I Love Red and White quilts, I have one in my stitching bag that is almost finished. I would love to own this book. Thanks for the give away!

  204. Karin Pavlovsky says:

    red and white is my favorite combination ever. I have many in progress and one that has worn out . I lost a red and white quilt when my quilter died and someone stole it from the house she lived in. It was a 60inch red and white small squares with white blocks. I left it with her so that she could have something to look forward to when she cured her cancer. She assured me that my name was with it and if anything happened it would be returned to me. We talked a few weeks before she died and she was still planning on quilting my quilt and assured me it was safe. Oh well it made her happy but I wish her family would have returned it to me instead of allowing it to be lost..

  205. I have not made a Red and White Quilt. It is definitely on my Quilts to Do Bucket List. I am working on finishing a Red and White Hawaiian Quilt my late sister Pauline started in 1972.

  206. Janie B says:

    My stash of red fabrics,solids and prints are calling to me. Would love to make a red and white quilt..

  207. Carol G says:

    I am a true lover of red and white quilts. I would love, love, love to win this giveaway. I wish I could have seen the quilts on display. I have made red and white quilts but not a quilt with solid colors.

  208. Martha Followill says:

    I love red and white quilts. Have not made one, but my first one to make will be red plaids, both large print and smaller print and white. I am looking for fabric and want to start one soon. I also want a solid red and white quilt also. Would have loved to see display.

  209. tcartpilot says:

    I made a red and white double Irish chain for my daughters high school graduation. I used tone on tone both in the read and the white, it accidentally turned into a king size quilt. I love that combo.

  210. Teresa mk says:

    I gifted a scrappy red & white quilt with Detroit Red Wings backing to a young lad undergoing treatment. I’ve got a scrappy UFO for myself in the works. Teresa

  211. Red and white? Of course, my favorite color combination–Double Irish Chain, Schoolhouse and Road to Oklahoma. I have another Double Irish Chain in the works!

  212. Kandy Kuhr says:

    I have never made one, but always admired them…

  213. Susan doe says:

    I have been musing about a red and white quilt. I haven’t done a 2-color quilt and this just seems right for me now. Like reading everyone’s thoughts and comments. Thank you! Thank you!

  214. Anne Andrew says:

    On my bucket list to make with a reversible blue and white quilt. This book looks wonderful.

  215. Ronni says:

    It’s on my bucket list. I have been collecting red fabrics, both prints & solids for it.

  216. Tara Dickson says:

    Love, love, love red and white quilts!!!!! Have I ever made one??? No!!!!! But i definitely see one in the near future!!!!!

  217. Margaret says:

    I have not made a red & white quilt, but I know there’s one in my future!

  218. Janet says:

    I’ve never made a red and white quilt, as with so many it’s one I plan on doing someday. I’m not sure I could ever make up my mind which pattern to use though since they all look so marvelous.

  219. laurabligh says:

    I’ve never made a red and white quilt, but I plan on doing red, white and green for a Christmas quilt soon.

  220. Sue Glorch says:

    I am currently making a red & white schoolhouse quilt. The white is Grunge vanilla and the reds are scrappy from my stash.

  221. Debbie says:

    I have made a small scrappy red and white wall hanging.

  222. The Lisa Marie says:

    I’m about to start sewing my second red and white quilt. It’s a design of my own (my first!) that is based on a Fair Isle/Nordic sweater. I’m using red and white prints – no solids this time.

  223. Camille says:

    I have not yet made a red and white quilt. However, I have been collecting the 150 Canadian Women red and white block patterns at the Next Step Quilt Designs website that is recognizing and honoring Canada’s July 1, 2017 150th birthday . All of the block patterns are stitched in red and white fabrics mimicking the Canadian flag colors. Each block pattern also includes a short biography of a significant Canadian woman. Charming. While each of the blocks were free for a short period of time, a compilation CD with all of the blocks can be purchased at the end of the event . I missed a few blocks at the beginning but have been collecting them with a plan to select my favorites at the conclusion and make them into a red and white quilt.

  224. sunny says:

    I’ve made one red and white quilt, and used prints. They were actually 5″ strips that I received in a swap. I would LOVE to make another red and white quilt, and will be purchasing this book if I’m not the fortunate one chosen to win it. Thanks for the chance!!

  225. Carol Kuse says:

    I never have made a red and white quilt, but it is on my bucket list.

  226. I am machine quilting a red and white quilt this week, which was the Aurifil BOM in 2016.
    And I’m also piecing red and white blocks for my Canada 150 quilt!
    Love the combination!

  227. Wendy M says:

    I’ve made a few red and white quilts, my favourite is to use prints and solids together.

  228. Debbie R. says:

    A red and white quilt is on my To Do list. Love ’em!

  229. Mary Van Kleeck says:

    I would love to make a red and white quilt. It has been on my bucket list for a long time!!!

  230. Wendy says:

    I have never made a red and white quilt. Red has never been a favorite color of mine so I tend not to use it. However, it was my moms most favorite color and I do have an old redwork quilt top that she gave me years ago. Red and white quilts are still very stunning!

  231. Cheryl Harrod says:

    I love Red and White quilts. I have made several and I plan to make more. This new book is great and I would love to have it in my quilt books.

  232. Cynthia Meredith says:

    I’ve made a red and white Sampler but in prints not solids. I’d love it to make another because my daughter has that one.

  233. Susan D Justice says:

    Made a red and white hunters star quilt. Used prints and solids of reds , only 1 white. Redwork embroidery in white areas. Love the beauty of 2 color quilts.

  234. Marianne says:

    I’ve made a red and white quilt, a small table topper using prints. Red and white quilts are very striking.

  235. Isabel Rodriguez says:

    Never made one red and white but surely I am starting to think about it! Thank you for sharing.

  236. Janeese says:

    I have not made a red and white quilt, but have purchased an antique one. If I made a 2 color quilt I would use French General prints. There is something truly timeless about red and white quilts.

  237. Eileen Ellis says:

    3 years before this exhibit, I made a red and white quilt and was thrilled when it was included in the Jubilee Celebration in Houston. I was so fortunate that I was able to see the Infinite Variety exhibit in NYC in 2011. At the suggestion of my quilting partner in crime, we took the train to NYC for the show. I will admit I was skeptical. I thought, 800 red and white Quilts, I am sure I will be bored. But I was floored by the Quilts, the way they were displayed….everything.I remember there were dozens of people, non-quilters that were mesmerized by the display. And children on the floor under the swirled displays sat with sketch pads and pencils copying the patterns. It is something I will never forget. I wish someone would just mount the show again.I would travel any where to see it. Now red and white Quilts are my favorite.

  238. Cottage Grey says:

    I’ve never made a red and white quilt, but looking at these images makes me want to try one. They are beautiful!

  239. Chris says:

    My first quilt was a red and white one, back when reds bled. And despite the advise of experienced quilters, it was a feathered star. LOL

  240. JudyJ says:

    I have never made one, but it is on my bucket list.

  241. Janet T says:

    I have been gathering for a red and white quilt using red prints, but now that I see yours, I might have to rethink it. Beautiful quilts!

  242. Christine says:

    My red and white quilt has embroidered blocks. I made it many years ago. This was the year of red and white quilts in Canada, for our 150th birthday.

  243. JaneR says:

    I made a scrappy red and white star quilt for my sister-in-law about 10 years ago…loved it. Would love to make another one!

  244. Nancy W. says:

    Even though I love red and white or green and white quilts, I’ve never made one. I tend to gravitate to scrap quilts but I will be making a red and white quilt before this Christmas. Definitely

  245. Catherine S. says:

    I have made one red and white quilt with hand embroidered redwork blocks and setting piecing. I LOVE red and white quilts and missed the exhibit in NYC by a few months. (Insert sad face here)………

  246. SALLYBC says:

    I’ve never made white and red, as I typically skip the reds. However for the past couple of years this combo has become more appeling. I am working on a tan, br u own and green quilt that has called out for red highlights. I hope to do the red and white combo, and this give away would certainly help!!

  247. arden says:

    Yes, I made a vortex quilt copying the original 1912 quilt in the Infinite Variety show, using Paula Yates’ blog pattern. It hung in the 2014 Ruby Jubilee show in Houston!

  248. Clara says:

    A wedding quilt in red and white was made last year. The color red was suggested by the bride and all the fabrics had a print. The newlyweds live in St. Louis so a cardinal fabric was included. The wedding was in December so snowflakes were in the tono on tone white background and one of the prints had snowflakes. The pattern was Math Class from Natalie Bonner and Kathleen Whiting’s Cabin Fever book. It was a fun project to collect the fabric and sew the blocks. clara-chandler@att.net

  249. Karen M says:

    I made a red/white quilt. I used solid Kona red (don’t remember the name of it) and Kona Snow. It is in my pile of finished tops waiting to be quilted. Thanks for the chance to win.

  250. princess says:

    I am currently making a red & whitish quilt. I just received instructions for block 32. Yes, the Moda block of the week. Since I am trying to use my stash my reds are prints and so are the whites. These quilts are fantastic that you have shared. It is amazing that any of the antique ones were still of color and in one piece to show at the Armory. This book would be not only inspirational but educational. Thanks for offering this gift.

  251. Jan says:

    Can I say a 2 color quilt is on my bucket list? I am gathering reds in holiday prints for a Christmas quilt. Need to stop gathering & start cutting & sewing.

  252. I have started a Cathedral window quilt in red and white but would like to make more. Maybe the next in solids.

  253. Kelli Boles says:

    A red and white quilt is definitely on my bucket list. They are so striking. I may need to move to move it up on my list.

  254. Marie Ireland says:

    Yes I made a red & white Irish Chain & didn’t prewash the red fabric…BIG mistake!

  255. Shirley Ratliff says:

    I have not made a red and white quilt, but I love two color quilts (and even organized a challenge for my guild using that as the theme)! Currently working on a black and white quilt.

  256. Pam P says:

    I have made red and white Christmas stockings with a Scandinavian flair, but never a red and white quilt – though they are striking!

  257. Susan Belyea says:

    What a treat! Would love love love to have the book

  258. Karen says:

    I haven’t made a red and white quilt, but it is on the quilt bucket list with the Dresden, Drunkards Path and all the other awesome traditional quilt blocks. I should do a red and white Drunkards Path and strike off two bucket list items.

  259. Gail Palazzolo says:

    Love red and white – as a new quilter I find myself drawn to classic blocks and settings. I have seen photos of the Armory Red and White exhibit – wish I could have gone!

    I have an antique red and white top, but I’ve haven’t yet pieced a red and white quilt. It is on my bucket list however

  261. Charlotte says:

    I have the book from the New York show and have read it cover to cover and drooled on many of the pages. To answer the question, I haven’t made a red and white quilt yet but It is definitely on my bucket list. Thanks for the chance to win the fabric I need.

    Red is my favorite color, why have I made so many blue quilts.? I bought the book ” Red and White Quilts: Infinite Variety ” and love looking at all the amazing quilts. I was at Baltimore on the Prairie this September and one gal showed her spiral quilt. She still has to do the reverse applique in the borders. So beautiful. I have about three red and white quilts on the go. Bourgne Surround, Take Two, the red and white sampler that Barbara Black made after the show in New York. Also this year is Canada 150 Anniversary and Deb Tucker from Calgary, Alberta is running a free block of the week(actually three blocks per week ) of 6 inch blocks with a story about a interesting Canadian Women in history. There will be 150 blocks in total. I kept to the schedule up to block 63, but due to lots of traveling this summer I fell behind. There is an option to make a quilt with 72 blocks so I think that is what I will do. I also am part way through Etoile Rouge Block of the Week from Kathryn Kerr. Making that in French General red fabrics.
    I am printing the patterns for Moda Block Heads and Summer Simple Sampler by Gay Bomber but haven’t started these yet, not sure what fabrics to choose. summer Simple Sampler is shown in red so that should be easy to follow. I should probably do Moda Blockheads in my huge collection of Reproduction fabrics.
    Would love to win, can’t have too much red and white fabrics.

    I made a very large banner for my contractor to use at the “Home Show.” It was a red & white log cabin with the company name and a paper-pieced logo. I used very small prints. Most of the white prints were those contemporary fabrics that have T-squares, addition, and writing on them. Perfect for a builders project. The banner was very dramatic.

  264. TONYA MORTON says:

    I want to make a red and white quilt.

  265. Delaine says:

    I have always admired red and white quilts, but unfortunately, I have never made one. If I did make one, I would use solids in it. Thanks!

  266. Belle Jones says:

    I have made two red and white quilts. One was solid red (Mode Bella fabric) with Moda’s Bella white; the other was the same red with tone on tone. I love them both!

  267. Ann Parks says:

    I love red and white quilts! I made my Splendid Sampler quilt in red and white prints but have yet to do an all solids red and white quilt. It’s on my list (with so many other quilts I want to do!)!

  268. Cindy Strauss says:

    I have made a red and white sampler quilt. I used print reds and solid white. This looks like a wonderful book that I would really enjoy.

  269. Wendy Coffin says:

    A couple of the first small quilts I made in the 70’s were red & white, used small calico prints. I’ve been itching to do a large red & white like a sawtooth since….gotta get this book!

  270. Lisa says:

    I don’t usually work with just 2 color patterns but these are beautiful!

  271. Mom C says:

    I’ve never made a red and white quilt but I think they are stunning. Thanks

  272. Karen H says:

    I have not made a red and white quilt before -usually make scrappy quilts but these are striking and make me want to try one in the near future

  273. Nancy T says:

    I would love to make one in the near future. These few pictures have really inspired me.

  274. Susan Y. says:

    I am making a scrappy red and white version of American Patchwork and Quilting’s “Way Around” from Feb ’13. Love the large circles that appear as you build the quilt. But I always question/ second guess myself–is there such a thing as too many different fabrics; should i limit my choices; should i use scrappy reds and one white…this is always a learning process for me, one of the things i love about this craft. Long way to go on this –I need to go cut more pieces…:)

  275. INGRID says:

    Yes I made a red and white wall hanging. It was fun and I believe I would/will make a red and white quilt using plain red fabric…well grunge actually! Does that still count as plain? LOL

  276. Sandy Long says:

    Wow! Every single picture was jaw dropping!!! I’ve never made a red and white quilt, or any 2 color quilt for that matter. But a red and white, and a blue and white in prints are definitely on my bucket list!

  277. Mary Hartman says:

    I loved all the red and white blocks. I haven’t made a red and white quilt yet, but would love to make one for my granddaughter.

  278. JB says:

    Got the red fabric to make one, then chickened out after the red ran so much during the pre-wash. They are happy quilts though, aren’t they?

  279. Maggie Marlow says:

    I love the look of them – but I just can’t muster the will to make one! We all only have time to make so many quilts, even if we have a stash big enough for twice that number, and the ones I’m most inspired to make are much more colourful, but there’s a bit of me that feels a yen to make a hand quilted wholecloth, so maybe there will be a red and white in my future

  280. Denise V. says:

    I am currently working on a red and white quilt with embroidered red work blocks, trying to figure out how to finish it. I love the two color quilts, they are so beautiful. They remind me of my grandma’s quilts.

  281. Lee Bowers says:

    I am collecting red prints to make a red and white quilt….probably a sampler or star blocks. There”s something clean and crisp about red and white…just yummy!

  282. Edie Frasier says:

    I finally made a red and white after seeing this photo in 2011. Wish I could have attended this quilt show. Beautiful red and white quilts where displayed. I used Miss Scarlet fabrics which were a gift from my son and daughter-in-law. I used the Moda Blockheads block patterns and it turned out great. Thanks!

  283. bobbie rumler says:

    Yes, two colored quilts are eye candy…I’ve made several red and white and red and tan…there feathered stars from Marsha McClosey’s books…Thanks Bobbie Rumler

  284. Gloria says:

    My first quilt was a sampler quilt made using red and white calico prints and my love affair with RED began! I have been collecting red and white (solid) pictures for some time but have yet to make one. Red is in every quilt that I make.

  285. Thelma says:

    Have I ever made a red and white quilt, LOL! I make at least one every year. This book looks to be a treasure. I use the same Bella Solids for my red and white quilts as used in the book.

  286. Madeline says:

    A red and white quilt is definitely on my to-do list (as well as a blue and white quilt). I will use solids to ensure that the colors pop against each other.

  287. Ann D. says:

    I made a red and white pinwheel table runner. I used prints and batiks and white on whites. I’d love to try a larger quilt.

  288. Stephanie L. says:

    I have been collecting red and white print fabrics to go with red solid for a red and white quilt that I have been planning for some time. Planning and collecting stage currently but 2018 will be the cutting and sewing year!

  289. Maureen says:

    I made a Tree of Life quilt in red and cream. The red is a solid turkey red with a tiny black vine print. The quilt is classic and goes on my son’s bed at Christmas.

  290. Jane says:

    Yes! I made a red and white quilted Christmas tree skirt out of solids.

  291. Wendy says:

    I have made several red and white quilts but all have been prints. I love the depth of the different prints. This really does look like a lovely book!

  292. Bev Freswick says:

    These quilts are stunning! I recently bought the Infinite Variety book and love paging through it. I hope to start making a scrappy red and white quilt in the near future. Thanks for a chance to win!!

  293. SusieQ says:

    Look at this 300 comments, I sure am late to the party! I have never made a red and white quilt. I would not make it in solids only if I did. I have saved the 142 blocks for the Canadian women’s quilt and mentally have picked various fabrics for it. Would LOVE to have this book and some get started fabric. Count me in.

  294. JoLyn says:

    I almost always have red in my quilts, but never just a red and white one. That may need to be put on the list!

  295. Helen LeBrett says:

    I never have made one, but I saw an amazing one that was inspired by that exhibition, and it has started me on the path of collection red and whites. I’m going for solids and prints, like the quilt that I saw that was so stunning!!

  296. Twyla says:

    I’ve made a red and white triple Irish chain, one of my favorites!!

  297. Kay Hunzinger says:

    I have definitely made a red and white quilt. It’s a king size double ninepatch and I love it. It’s made all in solid colors.

  298. Kim Q says:

    I’ve never made a red and white quilt, but I definitely NEED to!

  299. Linda Austin says:

    I’m looking forward to starting a quilt using two colors in the next few days!!

  300. Jacquelyn (Jackie) Ayers says:

    I made a blue and white lone star using a red and white pattern 20 years ago. Since then it has been a lot of scrap quilts. With this book and all the red fabrics now available I would (will) make a red and white quilt. I love the curvy patterns. Certainly would be nice to win. Thanks for the opportunity.

  301. Debbie says:

    I love red and white quilts. I made a red and white sawtooth star quilt as an exchange with friends. It is so special to me. So fun! Would love to add this book to my collection thank you for the opportunity. ❤️

We love to hear from you...
