Black & White & Red Quilt Complete

I finally finished my black and white and red quilt. Its only taken about 18 months!! The top was finished before summertime, but I barely had it machine quilted in September. It is king-sized. If I were selling this quilt, I’d retail it starting at $1000.
The backing is preshrunk flannel. Originally I wanted to do all houndstooth, but of course when it shrunk there wasn’t enough yardage. I ended up getting some beautiful black keys on white to counter the houndstooth.

I used the alphabet function on my sewing machine to write ‘Love from Amy N____’ on the binding. I think the alphabet feature works better on single fabric depths, but it turned out okay.

These next 2 arrow blocks are my favorite.

I just love how striking they are. Truly beautiful blocks in my opinion.

I made this as a wedding gift for my coworker. We were hired at the same time, went through the training program together, and survived all kinds of nonsense together. She’s getting married this month, so I think the quilt is finally finished right in time!

    The quilt turned out great, Amy. She is a lucky friend to receive such a very nice wedding present. You certainly did a beautiful job making all the blocks.
    Love from Grandma

  3. Beautiful! I love red/white/black quilts. Plans for one have been in the back of my mind for some time now. (I have to get 12 other projects done first)
