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!
