Red and White Tour Part III...


The red and white tour continues. On the pillows in one of my guest rooms I have an well used red, white and blue quilt my friend Jayne was kind enough to sell to me. The quilt on the bed is drunkards path design. I found the top in a local antique store called Hunt and Gather. I was drawn to the red and white and decided to rescue it and send it off to my quilter Lynn. I asked her to use red thread so the quilt design would show on the white back (see close up of the back below).
The dust ruffle has red in it...I fell in love with it because of the colors and ruffle look. It is Ralph Lauren and I paid $20 and bought it a Ralph Lauren outlet outside Burlington, Vermont seven years ago. I don't shop outlet stores, but the store was right next to the hotel we were staying in. 
Isn't the back beautiful?
Yes, more red...I actually call this the red bedroom because of the red dresser, flag quilt hanging on my quilt design board and all the red shown above.
Thanks for stopping by...

Still enjoying the red... I've often thought of making a flag quilt simply to hang. maybe your inspiring me to get it done!

I just took your red & white tour. Being Canadian, I'm of course partial to red & white :-)

Although I like red a lot, there isn't very much red in our house. But the red that is there, is right there in front of you when you walk in, on the wall behind the fireplace. I think it's the perfect impact colour, and really gives the space a warm & cozy feeling :-)
