Throwback Thursday! ~ Red and Black Quilts!

Since I am in a red/black/white quilt mood, I thought I would share some of my past quilts made in this color scheme. Red is my favorite color and nothing makes it pop like white and black (and a wee bit of gray!).

These were all made back in 2008. This first one was made as a result of some ponderings on the word, justice. This verse just resonates with me still.

This was quilted on one of my domestic machines, can’t remember which one now. Probably my Singer 201 or 15.

Looking at this now, it reminds me a bit of the current graffiti quilting phase!

I remember randomly cutting the strips for the next one and just playing. After putting them together, all I could see was a reflection on water, so I added the red setting sun.

I still love this next one, just looking at it takes me back to the time I made it and the things that were going on in my life at the time.

Hope you enjoyed a look back at these quilts!

    I keep scrolling up and down, trying to decide which I like best. I can’t decide; I like them all! I love the contrast of those colors! The verse is definitely worth pondering as well 🙂

    These quilts make a really neat grouping. I feel like I’m at an art show. (And I’ve been thinking a lot about justice lately, so thanks for that.)
