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.


  1. love how light and airy the quilt is but still with my favorite style fabrics repros! thanks for sharing

  2. I like the quilt. Sometimes it is fun to make a quilt that is not so complex, yet striking and this one is. I enter my quilts in Quilt Shows and it seems in South Texas the judges just do not understand the complexity of Reproduction Quilts and go for the simple and easy.... This is a very nice quilt and one that could win a ribbon.
