    This is a fantastic post. I owe my son a quilt for his college graduation (yeah, it's been 9 years now). The colors were red and white. I've been very nervous to use those colors because of bleeding. This inspires me to start working!

    Both are great, but I'm especially fascinated by the first one. It looks easy but is so pretty. I'm planning on trying one like it. Thanks for much for sharing.
    God Bless,

    Both quilts are wonderful. Your choice of patterns was perfect for the reds and white. Did you design the patterns yourself? Great idea for two color quilt.

    You did a wonderful job with that fabric. I'm not a big fan of RED, but you sure changed my out look on Red. Thank you for sharing.

    I'm planning a blue and white quilt and a black and white quilt. I've already started buying the FQ's for each. Now, ladies, when planning a quilt for someone else, be sure you already have a design or pattern picked out BEFORE you even start gathering materials. I have looked at dozens of quilt patterns and none seemed right. Boy, I'm I glad I saw your red ones. The second quilt would be perfect. I believe I can use your idea (if its okay) for both quilts. It makes use of the variety of FQs I have and are just what my daughter and son-in-law like. The other quilt is for my oldest DGG and will be graphic enough for him. Thank you so much for sharing!!
