Barn Raising Red quilt

Barn Raising Red, approx. 21"x21"

 This small quilt is made of log cabin blocks in the pattern barn raising. The prints are small with a lot of calicoes. I designed and pieced it and hand quilted it. It is laying on another quilt, the red and black check binding defines its dimensions. I really like the log cabin block because of the many fascinating patterns possible. Using complimentary colors makes it striking.

Back view, I wanted to use a few of the beautiful calicoes.
