Foursquare by Red Crinoline Quilts

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.
Thanks for letting me share.

Lilly by Red Crinoline Quilts

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.
 Lilly Pattern
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.  

Thanks for letting me share.
