Carolyn Finlayson and Sharon DeBoer have collaborated on making this BEAUTIFUL, large lap or wall redwork quilt titled "Harmony in Red". It is a triple Irish Chain pattern made from three shades of red fabric and a soft, creamy white accent fabric, featuring a variety of 7 embroidered Airedale squares in the white non-chain blocks enhanced with beautifully pieced blocks. The embroidered Airedale squares are outlined with a small border, maybe a quarter inch wide or so, of a red print fabric and it really makes the Airedales POP! It measures approximately 54 inches wide by 72 inches long. Sharon did the pieced blocks, and Carolyn did the redwork and embroidered Airedales, as well as the quilting, binding and finishing.

Here are some closeups.



This quilt was won in 2013 by a non-Airedale person, who generously donated it back to The Bee so it could be offered again in 2014 to help raise money for National Airedale Rescue. It created quite a bit of buzz at Montgomery last year where it was displayed in the Hospitality Room one evening and again in the Quilt Display Tent at the Sunday show site. EVERYONE wanted to win it! Now you have a 2nd chance!!
