Handmade Patchwork Quilt

A fabulous patchwork quilt using many red fabrics to give this quilt such a stunning look. I have always loved two-color quilts in my home.
I really enjoyed making this quilt and will probably do another in different colors.
This quilt is 54" x 61". The fabric and batting are 100% cotton. The batting I used was Warm and Natural. Using a beige cotton thread I quilted an allover pattern of loops throughout the quilt. The binding was machine stitched to the front and then hand stitched to the back to finish.

Homemade Quilt Patchwork Mountain Cabin

 Patchwork Quilt

I just could't resist making another quilt with the mountain theme. I love these quilts as they remind me so much of living in the mountains. As much as I love living in Colorado I do miss my mountain home in Lake Tahoe. This quilt is a great comfort quilt. I just want to sit by the fire with a quilt like this. Especially with all the cold weather we have been having lately. The colors are brown, tan, red and green. Some fabrics have moose, deer and bear. A perfect quilt for your home, den, or cabin. Place in a bedroom, family room, or porch. Decorate your home with this cozy quilt.

Handmade Patchwork Quilt Diamond Shaped Homemade Quilt

I had been wanting to do a quilt with diamonds for awhile.  It is different from my usual blocks and turned out to be a fun quilt to make.  It was a bit challenging to put together, but I will do another one.  I just have to decide on what colors to do next.
