What a collection!

This is the quilt top that is hanging up in our dining room right now.  It goes nicely with my other red/white/blue quilts that have been made over the years.

Lately, I have found myself making quilts that belong to a theme or colour collection.  It was never my intention to start a collection.  However, once I started hanging up and displaying my quilts, they looked better when the quilts had colour harmony.  Thus a collection started.   Here are more of my red/white/blue quilts and tops:



My new kaleidoscope project will be a nice addition to that collection/theme.  
Except for one ancestor that we discovered was born in the U.S.A., my roots go back to France (blue/white/red) and our old Canadian flag and I honour my ancestors by choosing those colours. 

Nowadays, I'm starting to add more red/white quilts to my collection to honour my ancestors from Austria and Poland.

So, the next time you see a new project on my blog in a certain colour .... you will know that there is a reason behind the decision.

Have a great day!
