Put your foot down #98

Put your foot down is a weekly linky party for you to share your WIP’s and new finishes and hopefully make new friends along the way.

This week I’m asking you to pull out those old quilts or go through your blog to find an old post of a favorite quilt to share.

AccuQuilt sent me their new Basket of Lilies die. It is a block on board die that includes all the patches for a finished 12″ block which is what I have been playing with.

Two color quilts, more specifically red and white quilts remain to be my favorite and I love 💕💕this quilt. The red fabric I had cut several years ago for a quilt and the patches were not right. I threw them in a box and forgot all about it until cleaning the closet in my old sewing room. They were headed to the trash when I realized I could re-cut the patches with the 8″ Qube dies.

When I started piecing I had no real plan other than use up the red fabric. All of the blocks are different sizes.

    Love the color of the Glacial Bay Batiks would make a beautiful quilt

  2. I think a quilt using the lily pattern will be so beautiful! Can’t wait to see what you do with the design. It was hard for me to decide which older quilt to use for the link but I finally decided on the Nearly Insane quilt. There are over 5000 pieces in this quilt and I actually hand quilted it! Won’t be making that pattern again. Happy stitching!

      Heading over to the linkup now to see what you shared. A few of paper pieced quilts have that many patches in them.

  3. Hi Denise! Your red and white quilt is lovely. I’ve always wanted to make a two-color quilt. Some days I lean toward red/white while other days it’s a navy and white one. Neither have happened yet but you are inspiring me to bump it up the list! Happy Thursday. ~smile~ Roseanne

    • Denise

      Navy and white are stunning too. I’ve been playing with ideas in my spare time for another qal (patchwork this time) because I want to make a blue and white quilt. It’s really going to take finding that right china blue or indigo fabric for it to come together.

      • Oh yes! A crisp white and navy/indigo fabric would be gorgeous!!

  4. Hi,
    Love your Red and White quilt…so pretty. Have a great day!

  5. Your red and white quilt is beautiful. I dream of making one.

    • Denise

      Thank you. My next qal will be a quilt you can use just 2 colors.

  6. Linda Garcia

    Blue is one of my favorite colors, love the glacier bay blue batiks. Thanks for offering a give-away. Keep up the good work.

    • Denise

      Oh yes, the colors are so pretty. Good luck.

  7. Anne-Marie

    I had to go looking for a post I hadn’t linked before. I found an interesting one. 😉 The fabrics are pretty, as is your red & white. I’m so glad you rescued it and brought it to life. I don’t have any great tips for storing older quilts. Maybe refold them every now and then. Or, better yet, use them!

    • Denise

      Agreed, but I have too many.

  8. Hi Denise, I love two coloured quilts and yours is really great. It’s wonderful that you were able to save that fabric and repurpose it. I didn’t read the instructions so I’ve posted my latest post as well as my favourite big quilt. I love it and use it a lot. It’s all hand quilted – the days when I didn’t FMQ….hard to believe there was such a time. Take care….oh BTW your quilt is featured on Free Motion Mavericks this week.

  9. Love your red/white quilt. How fun that you were able to repurpose your oops. The only tip I have for making your quilts last longer is to not dry it completely in the dryer. I pop mine in for 10 minutes to fluff it up and then lay it flat on the floor. The agitation in the dryer breaks down the fabric quicker (just think of the lint trap with each load)

    • Denise

      I wish I had someplace large enough to lay a quilt out to dry like that.
