I've always got a thing going for the color red, particularly red in my quilts. The last 12 quilts that I've finished have red in them, of the 70 or so quilts I've finished half have red or are primarily red.
The Infinite Variety Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts show in New York earlier this year only added to my passion for red quilts.
I recently bought a binder to hold just my red quilt patterns. (Yes I know I can make any pattern a red quilt and any red pattern a different color quilt, but that doesn't stop me from buying patterns specifically with a red quilt on the cover, it's a sickness.)
What else would this binder store?
And how could I pass up this red lined legal pad?
So imagine my excitement, when not only did Carrie have Wild Air and Long Tally Sally quilts for show and tell for the Corn Wagon Quilt Co classes, she also brought this beauty . .
Scarlett Queen by Carrie Nelson for Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. !
The third full size quilt pattern she made for Market. I think it should have been named Thelma Scarlett, it's all me.
I just love the detail in those corners. From looking at the pattern, Carrie's developed a clever, easy and fool proof way to make this quilt come together perfectly.
Here's the same pattern in Jo Morton fabrics, lovely, but I think you know which one is my favorite!
Scarlett Queen is 6 foot square, but can be made smaller or larger. Any style or color of fabric would work for this pattern, a real stash buster.
I've got my Scarlett Queen pattern in that binder, just waiting to make its way to the top of my To Do List.
I also have a spare pattern to give away, and I won't hold it against you if you don't use red fabric to make this quilt.
To win this pattern just leave a comment on this post. I would love to know your favorite quilt color, but any comment will do! I'll announce the winner sometime over the weekend.
Official C n D disclaimer; I purchased the pattern Scarlett Queen, Carrie Nelson did not ask me to blog about this pattern or promote this pattern. If I never blogged about a Carrie Nelson pattern she would not see a difference in pattern sales, she does just fine without any help from me.Print this post
