Red Quilt, or Name Undecided

Wednesday and Thursday I spent most of the day sandwiching and then straight-line quilting my red quilt. It's going to be in our guild's challenge show, so I don't want to reveal it yet, but I'll give you a few peeks.

I really enjoyed working with these fabrics. As I told you earlier, I made this quilt because I had a lot of red fabrics. I'm loving these fabrics! Above is one given to me by a friend.

I love this one with its peachy blossoms.

And these gingko leaves in a batik! So pretty...

And a nice, bright, cheerful Kaffe Fassett.

I did straight line quilting on either side of each seam on this quilt. If you can see the safety pins in the above photo, you can figure out that I didn't need to stop and remove safety pins while I was quilting, which was kind of nice.
