that patience is a virtue. However when it comes to making a quilt top, I don't think I have much patience to wait it out.
As I stood at the design wall, looking at my Goodnight Irene quilt blocks, I just kept going. I found a similar pattern in the book "Open a Can of Worms" by Debbie Caffrey. I liked the slender border, finishing with the wider border of the coordinating fabric. So I now will say Good Bye to Goodnight Irene.
In all the years that I have been quilting, I have only made one Red and White Quilt. It was a commissioned quilt in 1997 and the only I ever sold.
The pattern originated from Eleanor Burns, but I designed the checkered border.
I can't remember how large it ended up, as the original pattern only gave directions as a wall hanging, using 6 Schoolhouses. I saved all the directions and hand drawings in hopes that I would make another one.
This is going to be an exciting year of Red and White Quilts. It will be fun to see what everyone creates.
These were a prize from Maureen Cracknell Homemade. I was especially happy to receive these as I've not seen them in our fabric shops locally. I believe this quilting publication is by the same people who write Mollie Makes.
