Fall Online Quilt Festival. | Alissa Haight Carlton Quilts

Fall Online Quilt Festival.

It’s so tough to pick my current favorite quilt to feature in Amy’s online quilt festival (such a fun idea!) but I’m going to have to go with the Red & Aqua lap quilt. I love it – who doesn’t love the color combo??

Red & Aqua Quilt

I used white in both the sashing and the blocks in the quilt and I love the framing it creates for each and every fabric in the quilt.

    This is beautiful! I love the unusual fabrics and the texture from the heavy quilting.

    I like your idea of using the same color inside the blocks and for sashing. It does give it a very neat look!

    Red and aqua are always winners in my book. Beautiful quilt.. all the fabrics are so different and yet they make sense together.

    I really love how you used the solid color to frame the other fabrics and make them pop so nicely.

    I read your blog regularly, but don’t always take the time to leave a comment. I really love this quilt! I love those colors together, and I love the way you used the white in the block and as sashing. I really need to try that too.
