Red Quilt

I have finished making another quilt for my shop.  This one is made from red, black and white patterned fabrics which were all left over from other projects.  I made the quilt up in rectangular blocks, the middle is triangles and squares, then I made some long blocks of squares put on the diagonal and sewed them around the outside of the centre piece.  Then I lengthened the two ends using some more squares but these were placed as squares not diamonds.   The finally to make it a bit wider I added  long wide strip to each side using some Tilda fabric my son gave me.

I used a polyester lightweight wadding and backed it with some poly cotton in a cream colour with a brown and pink pattern.  The binding is just scraps leftover from making the quilt.

I have hand quilted this quilt again as I prefer doing it this way although I might have a go at the machine quilting again on my next project.
