red stripe

 
i made this quilt from old red and white sheets.

it has a blanket on the inside - and another old sheet on the back.

its channel quilted in narrow lines.

usually when i channel quilt i will use a longer stitch and quilt as thin or thick lines as i please.

a nice part about using old blankets a batting is ... you dont have to worry about them falling apart in the quilt the way that batting that is new will fall apart if its not quilted to death. think about how cheap polyester comforters get balls of batting in them..

i did not measure or worry about stripe size, i just tore apart the white and red sheet then used a small stitch to sew the stipes together. easy.
