{Post 1,478} Red Zinger Finished and Labeled

This is my Red Zinger quilt, made from selvages and a favorite red Thimbleberries print.  It is 74" square.


A pic of the front and back, then a close-up of the back so you can appreciate my amateur machine quilting skills (this is a joke!).  I used cream thread on the selvages in a tight stipple, a feather in the border, and a specially-designed-by-me freehand design in the X's.

I love this quilt and i have plenty of selvedges so I could make one. Maybe someday. Wow! Gone for a long time and I hardly even expected to see another post after the first one a few days ago! Oh, and I like the first picture of the HST layout.
