Red Star at Nite

So, What do you think?  My own design!  Yes, I know traditional, but that is ok.  I have been wanting to do something with toile, so here it is.  I was inspired by Charlotte Angotti, after seeing her at Greater Columbia Quilters in Aug.  She used large prints with large snowball blocks to show them off.  So, off I went.  I have also wanted to do a red quilt.  Two for one.  Still have to put the binding on.  Out of the red, so will have to be the black.  Originally I was going to use the white with black as the inner border, but it didnt work, so I used the red from the binding.  Like it allot.  Tried to quilt free motion, from the front of the longarm, couldnt see where I was quilting. I used white thread.  So swapped to a pano and worked great.  So busy you cant see the quilting anyway.

How do you like my name for the quilt?  I am new at naming quilts.

Happy Quilting, Vicki

I want to use toile in a quilt also. It seems like it is not as easy to find as it once was. You are "singing my song" - I want to make a quilt that is red and white, too. I guess all of that will get put on the list for next year!

Congratulations on your design and the beautiful quilt that resulted. I like the name and think it suits the quilt.
