Project Quilt from Moda
Richmond Reds collection for Moda
String quilt blocks by Becky Brown
It's a line of mid- to late-19th century reproductions with each
print named after an American town, north and south.
The signature print is a reproduction of a
mid-19th century floral we've called Springfield after Lincoln's hometown.
Good Fortune by Georgann Eglinski
Austin in Rebel Red
It's not all red, but the classic madder red of the 1840-1880 era is the theme.
There's also a subdued bronze shade of green
Winnetka in Bronze
And several rich browns....
Springfield in Mahogany Red
Minden in Chocolate Brown
The floral above is named for Minden, Louisiana.
Here's the patriotic print, a small outlined star from right after the Civil War.
I named this print after Emporia, Kansas.
Winnetka in Rosy Pink
Reds shade to pink as in this basket weave
named after Winnetka, Illinois
Raleigh in Shirting Cream, almost a white
Albany in Aged
We've done a romanticized sepia colorway we are calling Aged.
Bloomington in Aged
Becky Brown did a traditional "Richmond" block
showing the range of contrasts in the line.
33" x 33"
And I did a small top that looks like a Christmas Star. I used a Moda free quilt pattern for 10"squares and reduced it to use with 5" squares (maybe Charm Packs or Layer Cakes cut into 4 squares.)
A - 5" squares cut diagonally for triangles.
B - Squares trimmed to 4-5/8"
Finishing to 4-1/8" squares.
4 Blocks make a 66" quilt
I am expecting the precuts for Richmond Reds to be delivered
in late summer with yardage soon after.
The scheduled delivery date is September, 2014
Look for more information about my sources for prints, colors and names during the summer. We'll be making Austen Family Album blocks up in it too.
