WOW -Fabric Tuesday 12/13/11

The Two Color Challenge is done!

I was beginning to think I'd never get it done.  So glad I was wrong.  Am very happy with it.  Thank you Deanna for working on this with me.  I found this block which I fell in love with in a Fons & Porter quilt project (well, it was in their mag) and came up with the setting.  She made the machine embroidered bouquets, provided just the right red material when I was cutting all the pieces, pieced the squares so I could sandwich and quilt them, and helped with the hand work.

 If you click on the photo you can see an up close view of them and the quilting motifs.   Measures 51" square and was made using a QAYG method.  Here is the back:

We won 2nd place in our Guild's Two Color Challenge.  We still have to go the quilt store for our winnings, Deanna - LOL. 

This quilt is why I've been thinking of other colors for Esther's Red December present.  You should hop over to her WIPs on Wednesday (WOW) and see what others are doing with her wonderful patterns!  And don't forget to go to Quilt Story's Fabric Tuesdays to see what other eye candy is linked there.  Both are in my right sidebar. Enjoy!

This looks fabulous,and congratulations on your prize.

I know what you mean, but I don't think you could ever have too many red and white quilts. Someone is making Red December in duck blue and White and it looks -superb-. I am thinking that I want one of those now too.

A lovely quilt and what a lovely way to end 2011 knowing it is finished and it was a winner all round. I like the reds you used in it and the beautiful centres. Cheers Glenda
