Here you go, another East Cobb Quilt. This one got a ribbon. It is modern, geometric, and colorful.  Of COURSE I liked it!

It is called Red Stix and made by Nancy Perkins. She says she made it at a quilt retreat and was inspired by a quilt in one of Gwen Marston's books. 

The quilting was done by Paula Wexler and is the perfect counterpoint.

Some of the things I admire in addition to the quilting decisions are about the colors. Perkins chose several shades of red and scattered them on a "background" of the darker red. Sort of contained chaos. 

The stix themselves are solid except the white. The addition of the black print on the white softens and sharpens the overall effect at the same time.  Magnificent.
