The Classic Appeal of Red, White and Blue

CollGallBundles

Decorating trends featuring red and blue remain strong — from Redwork embroidery and Americana country settings to more contemporary looks, their appeal continues. The addition of cream gives each color a fresh, clean look. So as we were launching COLLECTORS’ GALLERY by Faye Burgos, we were especially excited to see so much quilt inspiration available to go along with it.  Case in point: Red, White, and Sometimes Blue, published by Martingale.  The book is a compilation of classic red and white, blue and white, and combined color projects from the pages of McCall’s Quilting magazine.  Choose from the 17 projects, including pieced and appliqued, scrappy and tailored that go far beyond patriotic themes.  You’re sure to find lots of ways to highlight Faye’s lush florals, textures, and 1″ Strip-It prints, too.

We figured it was a natural giveaway, so we’ve partnered with our quilt buddies at Martingale to offer a “Book & Bundle” prize to a lucky winner,  Comment below for a chance to win a copy of the book along with a 12-pack of BLUE half-yard cuts!, then visit the Martingale blog and comment again to increase your chances of winning!  Good Luck, everyone!

  2. Red has always been my favorite color. I like Garnet Glaze, so my pick is red.

  190. At my first quilting class, the instructor told us to pick 7 fabrics from the array she had set out, to make a card trick block. Being new, this seemed overwhelming…how could all these prints go together? After seeing me struggle, she said I could pick just 5 fabrics. After still looking at all these prints and getting frustrated, she said 3 fabrics will do. I happily came back with Red, White and Blue! Thanks to my wonderful instructor who taught us about color and value, I got up to 11 prints in one block, by the end of the 10 week class. I am no longer challenged by mixing prints, but I still have a weakness for Red, White and Blue quilts.

  191. Wow!! Faye has hit another homerun with this line. I love it all!!!!! Must have it all!!!!! I want the book too!!!!

  192. I love two color quilts. The book looks fabulous & the fabrics are beautiful! Thank you for a great giveaway.
