I finished the Foursquare by Red Crinoline Quilts. This one is a change from my normal sewing. Most of my Civil War quilts are dark. This one is light and bright. The background is a tan on cream print. I used a solid civil war blue for the set-in triangles. Most of the colored blocks are tonal prints. The outside border and binding is a solid Moda Bella Natural. I just love how simple and clean the quilt looks.
I quilted with a very dense vintage rose pattern.
The simple nine patch was a very nice change from all the angles I had been sewing.
I have just hung the Lilly I finished last week from the new Red Crinoline 2014 patterns. The pattern called for 18 different lights for the background of the pieced blocks. However, I thought it looked took away from all the piecing in the blocks.
The alternating squares are a rosie pink from the Pin Money Collection. The pattern showed a bubble gum pink, but I like the aged look this piece brings to the pattern.
The blocks have 18 different prints from various civil war fabrics.
I quilted the quilt using a Large Feather.
This is my favorite block. I am not usually a purple fan. But I just love the little pop of color that the purple brings to the quilt.
