The Classic Appeal of Red, White and Blue


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!
