Red Sail Modern Mini....
Recently when Clare invited us to make quilts for her Retro Baby Quilt market project I gathered a bag of little cream triangles that I'd cut from my Floral Bouquet blocks. I've learnt from experience that triangles cut from 2 1/2" strips set beautifully in 2 1/2" squares. So I set about cutting a pile of 2 1/2" grey blocks and set in the cream triangles. I made one block 4" and set in a larger red triangle.I placed each of the triangles facing the same way, set to the right hand side of the block. I think they look like yacht sails.
This is a little mini quilt 27" x 23". It's quilted in straight line quilting and bound in a red and white polka dot.
It's my entry into Ellison Lane Quilts Modern Mini Quilt Challenge.
