Have you always wanted to make a red & white quilt?
Do you HAVE ONE that you have made before 2014?
SewCalGal is hosting a Year of Red/White Quilt Challenges. Starting THIS week (2/3 - 2/9)
One of the events is a virtual quilt show of red/white quilts made prior to 2014. The main page for this event provides general info at: http://sewcalgal.blogspot.com/p/redwhilte-quilt-challenge.html
Starting today, there is a LINKY for you to add in YOUR quilt!
If you are a designer, this is also a great way to promote any pattern you have created and made a red/white quilt with. For those that enter a red/white quilt that they made using a purchased (or free pattern) I do hope that they take the opportunity to increase awareness of that pattern.
And, if you designed your own red/white quilt but are not selling the design, you are also welcome to share a tutorial to help others make one, if you wish. This show is all about fun, and encouraging others to make red/white quilt projects.
The Year of Red/White Quilt Challenges is a sponsored event, where prizes will be awarded at the end of the year of challenges. The more events you enter the more prizes you have a chance to win.

I asked if this includes antique quilts, and she said yes – any quilt made prior to 2014 is eligible for entry! I have an antique Red & White Pineapple quilt at home that I am going to go photograph and add to the linky myself.
What I don’t know ((And need to find out)) is if this is for red/white solids only --- or do red/neutral quilts count if they are prints? I’ve got an email in and will let you know.
I’ve been wanting to make a Red & White quilt – and since I am finishing up my Split-9Patch Leader & Ender Challenge top – I might choose to do something Red & White as a Leader & Ender….if it has to be two fabrics only, I think I’ll have to shoot myself before I'd make it a primary project, but as a Leader & Ender, I think I can get it done!

I’ve been pinning Red & White Quilts to my pinterest board! You can visit my Red & White Quilt board HERE. Take a peek for inspiration!
Let those ideas for Red & White Quilt-Inspiration start to percolate!
I want to play along, do you?
