Not a great deal of progress since last post so I thought I'd show some more of my older work - along the theme of "Red".
This is my son's 18th birthday bed quilt, which I finished early this year. It is machine foundation-pieced (pineapple block) in his choice of fabrics, with a plain dark blue backing, and machine quilted in the ditch.
This is the Mariner's Compass quilt that I also machine quilted, and have shown before - lots of red in that one!
This is a Crazy quilt that I made about 5 years ago aiming to feature much loved Liberty lawns, and some vintage doilies that I had collected. The doilies were all other people's lovely handwork, not mine, but a lot were stained/ damaged so it didn't feel too wicked to cut them up and give them a "new" life (not easy to make those cuts though!). There's a bit of a crazy mix of machine and hand quilting there too.

So - lots of different "Reds" covered there !?
