October 30, 2018 – Red and White Dahlias
Pictures do not do justice to this red and white quilt. The quilt is square at 66″ x 66″, and it was made as a Christmas gift by a woman for her granddaughter. To bring out the dahlia flowers in the white patterned fabric, the quilt was stitched with pale peach/pink thread using the Dahlia’s Delight design by Christy Dillon (My Creative Stitches). The colored thread created a shadow effect on the white patterned blocks, enhanced the dark rose and plaid blocks, and made the back display ready, too.
