Here is my entry for this fall – my Little Red Zinger quilt….
The inspiration for this quilt was from Karen Griska’s Selvage Blog and her Red Zinger quilt. Earlier this year I was helping with a string quilting workshop at my local guild and I wanted to show them you could use selvages as strings also. This quilt was the result and also includes many selvages that ladies in my guild have been saving for me. There is even a flannel or two in there for variety! When I showed it at guild I had several ladies come up and look at it and say, “Hey, there is my fabric!”.
I wanted my feather quilting to be different from just straight up and down feathers, so I threw in some curves!
I also wanted to make the corners of the outer border a little different, so I made those as Square in a Square blocks, again with quilted feathers.
This has to be one of my favorite quilts because it is so bright and happy, it reminds me of my friends, and I love the quilting. It will hang in my sewing room when I get a hanger completed for it!
