This is one red quilt! I threw caution to the wind and just went for it. These 15" log cabin blocks are made from Valori Wells' Olive Rose line. I have seen many wonderful quilts blending red and turquoise, so I decided to combine the red, turquoise and brown pallets and see what happens. The back is pieced with 3 smaller log cabin blocks. As mentioned in an earlier post I LOVE log cabin blocks and one reason is this awesome tutorial by John at Quilt Dad. He knows his stuff! This is my third completed quilt and I am no longer intimidated by making bias tape or the binding process itself. Eventually I will need to tackle free motion quilting but for Big Red I just quilted in straight (kinda) lines. The binding is a snappy cocoa polka dot! Love it! I think I know a spicy little lady that will love this quilt, too...no peeking till Christmas!
