Red and White Quilt Challenges

red and white quilt show - Made Prior to 2014

This week Insights from SewCalGal is showcasing Red and White quilts that were made prior to 2014.  

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.

Happy Quilting!
