At the previous T for T last May I bought very cheaply this red vintage fabric, which had some marks and damage. When I saw it I knew that it would make a good start for quilt.
I managed to salvage enough fabric.
Although strictly speaking it is red and blue, I call this quilt "red" for short.
I matched some fabrics from my stash and bought some new, to compliment the red.
I kept the design of the quilt simple as not to detract from the beauty of the old fabric.
This is the result:
The main fabric is unusual shade of red, difficult to match with quilting thread, so I decided to use a pretty shade of pink for hand quilting, which I think worked very well.
Fabric: vintage, from stash and new
Hand quilting thread: Aurifil 28, shade 2440
