Red Between the Lines Quilt

Marianne Fons created this lovely quilt for the opening exhibit at the Iowa Quilt Museum in Winterset, Iowa. We supply full-sized templates and our Sew Easy instructions for cutting half-square and quarter-square triangles. Red and white are quilt colors have been favorites for traditional quilters for centuries and this red and white quilt pattern pays homage to that. While you can use any colors or fabrics that you choose, consider making this quilt in the red and white shown below (you can even purchase a quilt kit to use them same fabrics we did!) to continue the tradition.

One thought on “Red Between the Lines Quilt

  1. I saw Marianne’s Fons’ Red Between the Lines quilt in person this past summer at the Iowa Quilt Museum. As my husband and I traveled on a 4000-mile road trip I visited quilt shops participating in the Row by Row Experience. Two of those shops were in Winterset and within walking distance of the museum which was a serendipitous surprise. At the museum I met Marianne and participated in a “quilt turning” with her. Her magnificent Red Between the Lines was the top quilt – what a pleasant surprise to find the pattern for this quilt in the January/February issue of Love of Quilting. I have photos from that visit to the museum. Great memories!
