Winter Twitterings

 
Red and white quilts have always been one of my favorites. And as history would have it, red and white quilts has been a favorite for many others through out the years.  Redwork Winter Twitterings, designed by Pearl Louise Krach, is a pattern that sang to me. The Red Work embroidery designs I followed, but the end design of putting the quilt together has been altered.The most dramatic changes to the pattern are the diamond borders in the center and the square in the square border. Also each red work design was bordered with white on white fabric, a fat quarters bundle that I purchased in Lancaster, PA while on  quilt retreat. Actually most of the red fabric used was purchased in a quilt shop there too. Having added the borders to each Red Work block increased the size of the quilt. Electric quilt assisted me in sizing the square in the square border to fit, as well as the outer border.



















I love the final border with stars and connector blocks. I think the border took the longest to make than the whole quilt itself. Surely my seam ripper got a good work out. I would say 98% of the points didn't get chopped off, but there were a couple where I said "Good Enough" after many attempts of fixing.



Many camera shots added a yellow cast to the white portions of the quilt. The first two pictures are the best ones for showing the actual colors as they appear in person.
