Red for Passion

Is this not a lovely quilt? Does it make you think a moment or two of passion could be shared underneath? Wink wink. Bring on the Champagne, and put a 'do not disturb' sign on the door.

Lynn the piecer,  informed me that the quilt shop owner thought the dahlia fabric ugly.  In the eyes of this beholder I think Lynne did a great job using 'ugly' fabric.
This quilt is a large one, has a wool batt and a lot of quilting, including the dreaded SID. The one border is 14 inches. It seemed to take forever to quilt, always the way when there is a schedule. I am well pleased with the end result. 
Here's a picture of the back. No! it's not puckered or creased, it is fresh off the frame, it is being picked up asap. 
 I need to learn more about photographing quilts, and acquire some sort of hanging system for them.

Thanks for looking,


  1. Love the red quilt. Of course red is a favorite family color. Our sons room it red, as in bright red. Quilt on.


I would like to hear from you.
