Hi Quilting Friends,
We’re excited to join the “Color It Red” blog hop, hosted by our friend Carol at “Just Let Me Quilt”! We hope that you’ll enjoy your visit today.
This month our focus is on “RED”! Red is a strong and energetic color, and it can represent strength, determination, passion, or desire. Physiologically, red increases metabolism rates in humans, and raises our blood pressure too. Red is emotionally intense.
We like to use red in our quilting projects because a quilt with some red is never boring! Here’s a slide show that features several of our quilts that include red fabrics:
My project for this blog hop is a pretty quilted pillow cover, made with our new “Star in a Heart” quilt block! Here’s a picture of the block that Susan made, featured in our “For You, With Love” quilt:
I had some black and white fabrics left over from my “Black and White Delight” quilt, along with a couple pieces of pretty red fabrics in my stash. I decided to make a fun throw pillow cover for Valentine’s day.
The central block is only 15″ square, so I added some borders to enlarge the piece to cover my 20″ pillow form. A little quilting, and it was finished. Such a sweet addition to the winter decorations in our home!
The block pattern is available to purchase, right here. You can find the rest of the designs that are featured in our slide show at Ms P’s Pattern Shop.
UPDATE: The winner of our “Star in Heart” pattern giveaway is Dixie M. Congratulations!
