After seeing all those red and white quilts the other day, i feel like I should make one. Does anyone else feel inspired to do so?

Good question. I adore red and white antique quilts but have a real phobia about using red fabric.

Help me get over it folks!! :D:D

The display was marvelous, but I could never do a red and white justice.

they were all so beautiful that it really makes me want to try one but it would be hard to decide which pattern to go for.

I am not a red/white person so no they are beautiful to look at but not for me to make :)

They were an inspiration. I may have to make one on retreat in a couple of weeks.

I am inspired to make one, but have my hands full with two wedding quilts and a Buzz lightyear quilt for hubby for his bday... and DGD 3rd birthday this July 4th, so she's getting a Muppets quilt. so we'll see if I'm still inspired come October :)

That would be the hard part for me.

I made one for my daugter in law 9 years ago. I used 17 different reds and 31 white on whites, white on cream, cream on white, etc, etc fabrics. It's totally gorgeous. I need to remember to take my camera to her house and get a photo of it.

Just made me remember I have a red/white table topper and a blue/white civil war baskets cut out and in boxes waiting for me. I just need to get caught up on WIP before I start something else.
