Little Red Riding Hood

After a week of showers here and diligent hand hemming, there was one sunny day to photoshoot my finish of "Little Red Riding Hood."


This little couch snuggler measures 62 by 70 and has a flannel backing.


I freehand quilted the spirals on the rented longarm up at the Ellen Peters' quilt studio in nearby Laconia, New Hampshire.


The fabrics are all Civil War reproduction from my stash with the one exception being the red border.


This has a 100% cotton batting by Warm & Natural. It was very breezy as I tried to get the quilt to hold still on the clothesline!


This was my own invention that just grew from my pile of 4-patches which I sewed into 16-patches as blocks. I set 30 blocks as 5 x 6 and added two borders.

I hope that you are enjoying Spring as much as I am!


Happy sewing!

I think the classics, like your 4-patch quilt here, make the coziest quilts. Nice job on the quilting. The whole thing looks very happy, waving there in the breeze. : )
Our daffodils have all bloomed and faded (unseasonably high temps near 80 today), so thanks for sharing yours.

Little Red Riding Hood is beautiful--nothing better than Civil War fabrics, red borders and flannel backing. Spring seems to come and go here--has been very rainy, wet and cool. Good quilting weather
