This is my only other piece that is red and white. Originally purchased from an eBay seller in America, it had no provenance.
It is difficult to make out in the pictures but the majority of the red blocks are a tomato shade but at some point the maker ran out and around the edges they are a deeper red in colour.
It is quite a large top and I decided to hand quilt it with red thread in a lobed pattern.
Some of the blocks in this shot are the darker red shade.
It was a perfect winter quilting project. It was quilted in a hoop and as the wadding is wool, it kept me very cozy. Unfortunately it had to be put aside so I could work on a quilt for my brothers wedding.
I think it is about time I got back to work on it.
