The large prairie points around the center panel can be unbuttoned to reveal things Little Red Riding Hood might have seen in the forest. Be careful, you might find the wolf! (He looks a lot like a modified dog!)
A few years ago, I "revisited" the idea of Little Red Riding Hood. I used the same pattern I had drafted for the first figure of Little Red, but changed the colors and did not put large prairie points in. The finished quilt looks completely different! One thing I did not change is the "hidden" wolf in the background. Can you see him?
For those of you who have not left during my extremely busy summer, THANK YOU! I am almost back in my old routine now. Because you are important to me, I am having a giveaway of a pattern of your choice from my Craftsy store! (I will email the pdf to you.) This is for my faithful followers as well as any of you who are new here! Just let me know in a comment and your name will go in the drawing. The drawing will be on Tuesday night, 9:30 pm (Central). Again, thank you for being here!
Welcome back! Really enjoyed your two Red Riding quilts, they're just too cute.ReplyDelete
Good morning, I have stayed right here, knowing your would be back soon. Summer is when everyone is able to catch up and be busy. Welcome back.ReplyDelete
I like both versions of the quilt. Once I found the hidden wolf in the second quilt I had to go back and look at the first one and lo and behold there he was in that one too.ReplyDelete
That is a beautiful quilt, need to have a granddaughter so I can start making girl quilts, lol.ReplyDelete
I love your shepherd pattern, would love to be entered.
I love both your Red Riding Hoods - especially the hidden wolf in the second!ReplyDelete
Thank you for a lovely giveaway!
Family time is much more important. It is good to see your getting back to your routine too. Love your Red Riding Quilts...both have such charm. The hidden wolf is perfect. Thank you for offering a give as I didn't realize you had a Craftsy store. I went for a look and think I should make your little purse pincushion. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts and welcome back...ReplyDelete
These are both wonderful! Love the buttoned flaps with fun things underneath. I did find the wolves in both quilts, but had to click on the photos to see them larger. Such a great idea!ReplyDelete
And a very nice quilt it is!!ReplyDelete
Welcome home. Both are lovely quilts filled with creativity.ReplyDelete
Now how could we abandon you?ReplyDelete
The hidden details in both versions add another dimension of fun to these charming quilts. I may have to borrow your idea of hiding things in the next kid's quilt I make!
So glad youre back. You've been missed!
I'm a new follower and love your Red Riding Hood quilts! I've been thinking about doing a quilt with hidden pix under prairie points but haven't done it yet. You've provided the inspiration to get some new ideas popping! Thanks!ReplyDelete
Thank you for showing both quilts and sharing their 'story'. I love to see the difference (and do a little search for the wolves LOL).ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing your story and I can also relate to trying to get things done in the summer months when all I want to do is play with my five grandchildren who live in the same town and call and say "Nan can you come over and play". The ages are from nine down to three months old and I know that they grow up too quick. So off I go and "Play" whenever I can.ReplyDelete
Linda those are both fabulous quilts.ReplyDelete
The quilt is so adorable!ReplyDelete
Both quilts are wonderful, but I think I love the hidden pictures under the prairie points too much to give them up. That must have been so much work! A labor of love, that's apparent.ReplyDelete
I love both your Red Riding Hood quilts and those hidden pictures are a genius idea. It's lovely to have you back again.ReplyDelete
Both versions of Little Red Riding Hood are lovely, Linda. I love that you have those little hidden items.ReplyDelete
I love your Red Riding Hood quilts. I especially love the way the wolf is lurking in the background. Great work!ReplyDelete
I'm loving the hidden wolf! So fun!ReplyDelete
I'm still here and glad you're back!ReplyDelete
I can certainly envision you sitting in your hotel room stitching away to pass the time and producing such an imaginative quilt too. I love the original although they both are great.ReplyDelete
What a neat idea of hiding little things on the quilt! How clever! Both quilts are wonderful! Thanks for sharing! Welcome home and back to reality, hehe. Summer is just a busy time, although it feels like this whole year has just flown by.ReplyDelete
Thank you for a super giveaway and a chance to win.
Linda the quilts are both wonderful. I like the prairie points with the buttons and also the second one where you placed prairie point inside the frame too. I am a follower and I was wondering what you had been up to since I hadn't seen anything in a while, so welcome back.ReplyDelete
Both quilts are beautiful! Love the idea of the prairie points and the surprise underneath!ReplyDelete
I am a follower:)
Thanks for sharing and welcome back!
Love your quilt and little red riding hood, thanks for a chance.ReplyDelete

What cute quilts! I like both of them. Sweet of you to have a giveaway, too.ReplyDelete
Linda i like both of them....and it is is amazing how quilting allows so many a sense of peace but also a sense of belonging that requires only the company of one... Soon i will be on my own for3 weeks and i am so looking forward to it....now i have classes that are starting but my nights will be spent being inspired by you...and yes i see him..ReplyDelete
Too sweet, I kinda forgot that fairy tale. Sweet giveaway too. Thanks.ReplyDelete
I love that quilt. I would really love to win one of your patterns.ReplyDelete
Charlotte (from Corpus Christi).
Oh my goodness, Linda, what a treasure both of these pieces are!! I'm really captivated by the first one, with the prairie points and hidden treasures! Was it a store-bought pattern or did you make it up??ReplyDelete
