This book has so many iconic Red and White blocks!!! They are divided by size block and whether they are applique, piecing, or a combination of both. And you know how I just love Applique ;)
I mean, how cool is this appliqued Sunburst block!!! You know I totally want to make this block, it just looks like so much fun with all of it's applique goodness ;)
And I just love the classic pieced blocks as well. Does this Chimney Block look familiar ;) So fun!!! And I love that Linda included a fun little "tidbit of history" to go with each of the blocks. It really is fun to see the when/where/and for what of these blocks.
But the part I really love about this book, is where Linda takes all of those fun blocks she introduced, and puts them into projects!!! And these projects are incredible. Here is that Sunburst block combined with a Drunkards Path Block. Awesome!!! And seeing this has me wanting to go back to Red and White for it ;)
And there are also more "Modern" inspired designs. Like this Carpenter's Square quilt!!! I just love all of those tiny little lines criss crossing. Just Stunning!!! This one has gone on my "to make someday" list as it would make a great Alma Mater quilt as well ;)
But the quilt that I want to make right away, is this gorgeous Wintertime Quilt!!! It is all applique, so it would be perfect to work on cutting out on car rides and such :) But, as it is called Wintertime quilt, I am envisioning it in gorgeous Navy's, Crystal Blues, and deep Greys. Wouldn't that be so fun!!! I see a new winter quilt for next year ;)
I just love all of this Red and White inspiration and plenty more "to do someday's" added to my ever growing list. Now to just pick out which one will be my 2018 Red & White Quilting quilt ;)
How about you . . . Any particular quilt that you have on your To Make List for 2018???
