|My Red and White Virtual Quilt Show submission.|
My red and white quilt was made from Blocks of the Month that my LQS was doing in 2001. The different blocks were a challenge for me, as I was a new quilter at the time. These blocks sat sadly unused until 2005. At that time, I put them together in a diagonal setting and added a new block, so this type of setting would work. Only having 12 months in a year kind of limits the setting options in those BOMS! This is the first quilt that I had ever worked out the setting, including the math for those setting triangles, on my own! The border was also a challenge for me at the time, because I mitered the corners to accommodate the stripes and also tried to match the stripes in the process. I quilted it myself on my DSM. It represents lots of quilting firsts for me and it's one of my favorites! Thanks for letting me share it with you!
