Red and White Challenge

I've decided to join the fun over at SewCalGal and enter the red and white challenge. She is hosting lots of fun activities through out the year to celebrate red and white quilts, so I couldn't resist jumping into this one! When you click over to her website (by clicking on her name) you will see all the links to all the quilts entered. And who doesn't love a quilt show? Especially one that has ALL RED AND WHITE quilts!!
This is my entry. It's also in the banner at the top of the blog this month. I like this quilt so much! It was a copy of a quilt I made in black and white. The pattern I wrote for it included five sizes. After making the king size quilt, I knew I wanted another one in a smaller version, and I got fancy and added scalloped borders. I'm so glad I did that because now I know they are not hard and I plan to do them again! I call this version of Dreaming in Black and White pattern, Dreaming in Crimson. I know the cleverness is really about to knock you over isn't it?
This is a close up of the quilting from the back. I just quilted free hand flowers and they were super fun. I plan to use this motif again! I made some chubby and some skinny, some very large and some tiny. Occasionally I had to add a loop to get myself where I needed to be, and that's okay too. I like how organic it feels.
And a close up...
And the full view...
 You get the idea. Now go to Sew Cal Gal and enjoy the show!
 
Enjoy every stitch!
