Red and White Revisited

 Ever since seeing this adorable antique 2 color crib quilt at the Aurora Colony quilt show I've had it on my mind to make it. I had other photos but cannot find them.
They are calling it a Double x variation.
 Here is my version. My blocks finish at 5 1/2". 
I copied the quilting too, cross hatching the setting squares, triangles and border and did straight lines through the blocks. The little quilt measures 34" square and I couldn't be more thrilled with my reproduction!

Happy Wednesday!

  1. its just beautiful Lori I might just have to reproduce this one too!!! thanks for the inspiration
    wow that is a little block when you think of all those pieces but its so worth it.
    love how you are brave to use solid fabrics, I love them but just have not been able to move to solids more then I have so far, I think I need to work on that
    again thanks always inspiring.

  8. What, no quilt-along on this one? *LOL*
    It is beautiful, Lori. You find the best quilts to reproduce--and this one happened so quietly. I am wondering now how it would look in blue and white. Hmmm. : )

  9. You completed a beautiful reproduction. It must be very tedious to use such small pieces. Great job.

  18. I love the fabric you used! Love red and white quilts. I enjoyed your pictures of the Columbia River, got a very good look at it a couple of weeks ago, I did see a lot of men in boats fishing, I bet that is fun catching something that big! Congratulations on your run!!
