Love this! it turned out so well! I saw another red and white quilt the other day that just screamed to be a Christmas quilt! Ah, Maybe next year! Hope all is well and you guys are staying cozy under all of those quilts! the end is not yet in site for finishing my gift projects--only a week to go and here I am wasting time! So typical!

Stunning! Do you prewash? I don't, and I ask because the only time I ever made a quilt with a lot of red in it, it bled like a stuck pig and now all the other fabrics are kinda orangey...Yikes! I have been collecting reds for a red and white quilt "someday", but wonder if I should prewash them.

sclangs said...

That is really cute! Now I want one! Another project to put on the wishlist.

Caroline said...

OH, I LOVE it! How cute! If I weren't working like a mad woman on another quilt I'd grab all the red and white tones out of my stash and whip one together myself! That is adorable!

beth said...

Very Nice! Is it a gift? Wrap it around a tube with a cute bow!

Leigh said...

Oh that is SO cute!!! If I didn't have a mountain of Christmas gifts to finish I'd be digging through my red scraps right now!

The Calico Cat said...

Very festive.
Merry Christmas to you and yours.

That's so beautiful and festive. Makes me want to curl up with it in front of a fire! I'm in awe of how much you get done.

Brandi said...

Love it! :)

Amy said...

Oooooo that's FABULOUS! I think I need to have one of those myself!!!

I love red and white quilts. They are actually really versatile. This looks great with the snow.

badlandsquilts said...

Oh this is just wonderful! I'm going to try to have to remember this one for next year!

Jackie said...

Red and white a classic, very pretty!

Blogful said...

That is the perfect comment to a perfect quilt

Laurel H. said...

Love the quilt! Does this move you closer to your goal of finishing up your wips? (This WAS already on your list, yes?!!! LOL!)

carol said...

I wanna know how you can keep producing stuff when everyone else is so busy with Christmas that most of us can't get near a sewing machine, let alone sew for ourselves now?? Do you have elves helping you??? I'm thinking...YES!!!

Amanda said...

Oh I love This!!!!! Spectacular!!!

kimland said...

sweet!

Ania said...

I love red and white quilts!

Tamara said...

I love your quilt? Is there going to be a tutorial for it? I would love to make one for the Christmas season (next year of course) but I could also see this style in blues and greens!!

rarabecca said...

I'm not a quilter and I want one!! I think this would make a great duvet.

Aimee said...

Really cool! I love the setting - very original!

Lynne said...

I love it too! Wonderful!

Jennifer said...

It is sweet! I'd border it with a 1" green border and then find some candy can print fabric for an outer border. Throw anything on the back and bind it with a red & white polka dot and it's done!

You'll love it once you quilt it up - I always do!

Cheryl Arkison said...

Ooh, ooh, ooh, fantastic! Such a good demonstration of value and fun!

Myra said...

Clair said...

Fun, I didn't imagine it would look like that when you said a candy cane quilt.

Loralynn said...

How cute! I love the way it turned out!

Jennifer said...

i really like this! how on earth did you get it to hang from the gutters?

Renee said...

Fun & festive!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Wonderful!! When did you have time to do this??

Trisha said...

So fun! Love it on the bias like that. I bet that worked up quickly. What number UFO are you on for Joy in the New Year? I signed up for 13 and I am only done with 3 (just finished one a few minutes ago). Yikes!

Shelly said...

So simple yet so very cool......

Kristin said...

So great! I love it.

Linda said...

LOVE this! Love the idea of setting strips at an angle like this! Great idea!

Sara said...

oh i love love love it!
how do you get the strips to go diagonally (sp?) like that? i'd love a tutorial ........

Crystal Hendrix said...

eek?? I think it is really cute!! I like it!!

ozjane said...

did you tread on a mouse.....? That was a big eeek for such a yummy quilt.
What a difference an angle makes.

Dandelion Quilts said...

You are always so clever...

Margaret T. Zenk said...

just how do you do it? Are your kids self-sufficient or do you have them working in a sweat shop in your basement? I would rather sew/quilt than feed my family or clean my house, but eventually they'd notice there wasn't food or toilet paper. Your productivity is awesome. Tutorial please...we can do this for Valentine's Day.

mochaxlight said...

LOVE IT! *must suppress urge to go buy red and white fabric.*

wackywoman said...

OK, I NEED a red and white quilt now.

Mary said...

I love it, I want one too! Just Adorable, love red and white, perfect for this season!! Hugs Mary

Kristin said...

How very cool!

tammiemarie said...

love it! i still covet that AB wallflower print. sigh.

Anonymous said...

Is that a "holy cow I love this quilt" eeeek or a "holy cow this is hideous" eeeek? I agree with everybody else that it's great. Love the reds. Melissa in Memphis

Jill said...

I really love this, I was noticing today a large lack of red in my stash. I think I will make a resolution to remedy that.

Ida13 said...

I love it too. Will not it deformated during the quilting? I knoww, it is a beginner question.

Duyvken said...

I'm in love!

Pokey said...

Never too much red for me, I love your candy canes!

Maritta said...

So "candy cane" ! Lovely!!

nicolette said...

Y.U.M.M.Y.!

Janet said...

It's perfect, I love it to bits.

Jen of ReannaLily Designs said...

Love it! My sister-in-law is a red-white-aholic. I have to send her the link.

ale balanzario said...

Beautiful, simple, love it. :)

Zarina said...

that looks yummy. I've tried your zigzag tutorial but I need more practice to get the dimension correct.

Jessica Christensen said...

Did you just add to your list? That looks like a new start, not a finishing up of an old WIP. = ) Believe me, I am not throwing stones, however, because I live in a completely glass house. Looks great. I love red and white quilts.

Solidia said...

Mama Spark said...

A very good EEK! indeed - it's adorable, and perfect for the season (which is saying a lot coming from me, as I'm not much of a seasonal decorations gal).

bingo~bonnie said...

Oh how cute!! will you be adding a border? or just quilting and binding as is? either way - it's great!

and perfect for thinking about candy canes for Christmas or - even valentines... ;)

Merry Christmas! Love from Kentucky! ~bonnie
