I made a reference to my Red Delicious quilt the other day and thought I should explain myself. In 2009 I followed Esther Aliu‘s mystery which she designed using reds from her stash. Having found a fabulous background fabric I made my version in black and white and had lots of fun getting the birds of the background into suitable positions.
I was lucky enough to receive a viewer’s choice award with it at my guild show the following year. Over the course of making the quilt I collected a lot of blacks and whites so these leftovers are going into Grand Illusion.
That’s my Wheeler and Wilson No 8 peeking in a the bottom right!
