Red and White Quilts - Memories of A Masterpiece

February 10, 2020

I love red and white quilts, especially in February! Or every month really. :-)  I think I have always admired a two color quilt, but I definitely have a preference for red and white ones.  This one is no exception! Memories of a Masterpiece (actual name of the quilt pattern) made by my dear friend Thelma at Cupcakes 'n Daisies. I was honored and had the pleasure to quilt this gorgeous quilt. Eye candy ahead!!
I really had a hard time narrowing down which photos to post. It is not a bad problem to have. Quilt is designed by Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings from the Martingale Book, Red and White Quilts.
Like many quilts that are not mine to keep, I sure wish it was!! Sigh, it will go on my long quilt to-do wish list. As always, Thelma did an amazing job on the piecing.
I quilted this using the computerized pattern, Abundant Feathers.
It is one of my favorites! Although free motion quilting is my heart, I love being able to offer computerized edge-to-edge designs at a very affordable price to clients available here. I do not have all the patterns available listed on my website, so if you do not see one that sings to you, I can help and am happy to make suggestions.
 Abundant Feathers is a wonderful complement to this quilt!
I used bleached white Hobbs 80/20 batting. Innovatech thread on top and Magnaglide magnetic bobbins.
The backing looked like another gorgeous quilt. Are any of you working on a red and white quilt?

  2. Love this! I will be starting a red and white one in a few days. It’ll be for my daughter’s Double Wedding Ring quilt! The date is set for October and requested a king size quilt so I have my work cut out for me 😉

  3. This is a gorgeous quilt. Lisa is a master of large quilt designs from small pieces. And that feather design looks beautiful on it.
    I am working (off and on) on a red white Burgoyne Surrounded mini. It has been "in the works" for a few years, but I did just make another tiny block at my winter retreat last month.
