Red and white

The combination of red and white always reminds me of Japanese flag. It is a beautiful and striking combination of colours but somewhat I don’t really want to use it like green for Irish-ness.

But something wants me to make this quilt. It’s is a minimalist and improv pieced quilt. I added a bit of black which idea probably came from beautiful Japanese red crown cranes.

I quilted half of this quilt before we went away and when I started quilting it again, it was a bit hard to get a feeling of what I was doing before. I don’t know that did harm or good for over all look.

Most of time I struggle to see the difference between slightly cream and white fabrics. Especially plain Kona white and snow. But when I took these photos on a sunny morning, cream ones looked very yellow even in a shade.

I know it’s hard to see in photos but there are several different white fabric in this quilt and my box of white scraps is getting emptier.
