Red and White Quilts

I’ve noticed a lot of hits to my blog under the search topic, “red and white quilts.”  So here are a few photos of red and white quilts made with the Curve Master Presser Foot.

Here we have on the left a Pieced Dresden Plate.  That’s right, no applique anywhere on the quilt.  Each blade is sewn into a background piece, the units are then joined to form the block, and lastly the center circle is sewn in.  I have taught this class in numerous venues.  With the Curve Master, I can do the entire block without pinning, in about 20 minutes.  On the right, we have a Double Wedding Ring done in red and white, and quilted in glorious cherry motifs called Martha Washington. This was my booth at Houston in 2008; pictured are Elida Palomo, Gwen Receveur and myself.

I saw a red and white Drunkard’s Path quilt at the Dallas Quilt Show in 2008 and loved it.  So I came home and made one based on what I had seen, with the help of Gwen Receveur, during a quilt retreat in Hunt, Texas.  Here is the final masterpiece, quilted by Richard Larson.

Hearts and Gizzards is another popular red and white (or blue and white; black and white; any two-color combination) design.

Templates for accurate rotary cutting of any of these blocks are available on the Just Curves website.
