Red and White Quilts

Red and White Quilts are so classy. How can you not love them.
From my collection. Don't know much about any of these, except I love them.

Redwork dated 1926 large motifs from online auction.

I purchased this top in Pennsylvania June 2010.

Bethlehem Star

I have had this quilt a long time, don't even know
where I got it. But just love it. This is the first time it has had it's picture taken. It has been at the bottom of a trunk. So glad I finally got these pictures.

This one was in the same trunk. Classic.

Amazing what you can do with half-square triangles!
Lots of different red prints. First picture. Love the things you see in a picture.

Taryn at Repro Quilt Lover is hosting a virtual red and white quilt exhibit. The American Folk Art Museum in New York is having a red and white exhibit from March 25 to 30. I even checked the price of a plane ticket $307 not a bad price, but have no one to travel with and too chicken to go to New York alone.


  1. Oh Lynn I love these quilts especially the one you bought in Pa last year.
    I love applique quilts and this one is just calling my name!
    I would love to make a quilt just like this.
    do you know the name of that block?
    all them are beautiful
    the bethlehem star is just so stunning must look great hanging on a wall!
    a show stopper!
    sorry you don't have someone to travel with to the show.
    I will send you pictures from the show , send me an email!

  2. Just wonderful quilts! I grew up near Dunlap and 37th Ave and did my undergrad work at ASU. This is indeed a small world brought bigger by blogging. That appraisal was done 30 years ago in Miami. And believe me I wanted my money back!!

  3. Oh Lynn what a beautiful collection of red and white quilts - I was going to say the red work stitchery was my favourite but I really just like them all. I would love to be going to New York too but the fare from Far Northern Australia is a lot more. Take care.

  4. Wow! What a great collection of red and white quilts! I think the one I am particularly drawn to is the trees. Another to add to my list!

  5. The designs on the redwork quilt are very interesting. Different and a more detailed look.
