I love re-creating quilts…but when you start re-creating your own?
55 & Life to Go…this 55”x 55” quilt is a re-creation of one of the first quilts I designed as a Moda fabric designer. I know 10 years doesn’t make an antique…but I couldn’t help myself….I wanted to see this design in red & white…
Now… I may have been jumping the gun just a bit…when I made the 45 & Life to Go quilt, I was going to be 45 years old…kind of a middle of life age…but what I thought was 10 years is not quite so I won’t looking at 55 for at least another year…by the time this fabric comes out…oh, well I think that happens when you make it this far…can’t remember everything…45 was made is two sizes..55″ and 110″ so if anyone wants a king size that is the pattern they need to get…just in case you are thinking that you want this on your bed! I named this quilt because it has 45 star blocks in it…kind of like candles on a cake…but way better!
So…now almost 10 years later, ok not 10, but close enough …I have recreated this quilt in red & white…but I also have to admit..I did not actually stitch this quilt…Dawn Cornell, my friend pieced this for me…I cannot do them all…I know I want to, but it is just not possible…So I have some wonderful stitchers who can make some money making quilts for Primitive Gatherings…I did put the binding on! I’ll talk more about the quilting in my quilting post of Redwork Quilts!..
These little stars are only 5″. But strip piecing makes the centers possible in a snap!
We have kits and patterns available for this quilt! It would make a great quilt for a ladder, it’s small enough to be a wall hanging and hang on the wall…or even folded up and hung just about anywhere!
