Red and Green


Lots of red and green on blogs over recent weeks for obvious reasons.

Hope you like the new header that is up for the festive season It had been waiting for it's binding for sometime and the upcoming season galvanised me into action.

My Carolina Lily cushion is a vintage cutter piece I bought in 2007 from a dealer at the Vermont Quilt Festival.
I was going to frame it but in the end it has become a cushion. I really love the Carolina Lily design and would love to know what happened to the rest of this quilt and where else  any part of it is.

I wonder if cutter quilts that are split up into cushion or crib size piece's will ever come together again in blogs or events. I think one such thing happened if you look here Lisa . said that the believed this bodice and quilt were from the same article.

  1. Love the red and green header, especially the lovely quilting motifs as I seem to be in the minority who favors non-intense quilting.

  2. Hello, Quiltalina-I agree sometime less is more- I think it depends on the fabric and what else is going on in the quilt.
    Thank you for your comment sorry I cannot reply direct your as your profile dose not allow this.

  3. Your Carolina Lily block looks just perfect in the cushion.It always makes me wonder if the quilt maker would be amazed at how their work is treasured now + at the distances their stitches have travelled.

  4. Your header looks great and I love the CL pillow - what a lovely piece.

  5. Lovely header quilt! How nice to have it finished! Do you know my post today is titled Red & Green!? Too funny!!

  6. I am glad you chose the cutter for a pillow. It looks great. The quilt in your header is festive

  7. Love your new header! Hopefully the Carolina Lily was in poor condition other than the block that became your pillow.

  8. I'm always sorry to hear a quilt called a cutter - maybe it really was. It has become a beautiful cushion. Your quilt is just gorgeous and I love the quilting on it.

  9. Hi Sue, Found your blog by way of Bill's Wonkyworld. Your quilt in the header is lovely - it has a real antique look to it and the quilting is very nice indeed. Carolina Lily is one of my favourite blocks - how fortunate to be able to rescue a piece and prolong its life!
    best regards, Kate
