My last quilt guild meeting had a red-white-blue show of quilts. I grabbed my camera with me and figured I'd get some eye-candy. I'm sure you'll be able to tell that I really favor stars! :)
I'm not sure why, perhaps because stars can give a nice "pow" to a quilt.
I was sorta hoping that I would feel inspiration to make my own patriotic quilt. How sad is it that I don't have any RWB quilts or tops of my own?
The biggest thing that holds me back is my intense dislike of red! I tried to force myself to use it more by buying red fabric. Still sits nicely on my shelf. :P
I can tolerate some darker shades of red, like the one in the last quilt. But bright vibrant red? I advert my eyes and hold back any shudders.
I can quickly forget about red just by spending some time with my beloved green. ;)
