|Some binding finished on Monkey Business. Love this print but I don't remember what it is called.|
For the red and white quilt I decided to go outside of my norm. When I first started quilting I used white-on-white in quilts because I was shopping at more traditional stores and only knew traditional quilters. Some time on the internet and becoming addicted to blogs and I learned the way of the modern quilter. I now use a boat load of Kona White (I buy it by the bolt, people).
This quilt, however, is out of my comfort zone already because it has all these reds that I got in a Blogger Bundle from Fat Quarter Shop with my monthly Blogger Bundle subscription. I decided I would use the reds together to make a quilt for my husband's stepmother's mother (Nana). Using a crisp, modern, plain white with the reds didn't look right. So I fished out any white-on-whites I had in my stash and bought some more to have enough true whites to get the look I wanted. And I love it! Here are some close ups to see the white-on-white prints that I chose:
|Flowers. Poppies maybe? I love this look, actually.|
|I think this is meant to be tree bark? Wood grain?|
|I found this white-on-white at Greenwood Quiltery. It was the last of the true whites that I needed to finish the quilt.|
|There is a lot of movement in this white-on-white. I think it is quite pretty!|
|The pressed seams look pretty from the back, don't you think?|
|The reds all play together nicely now!|
|This was a stack waiting to be turned right-side-out. I got ten finished and have five to go!|
