    I really loved those reds. Just the color red I like. Buttttttttttttt, I don't know what pattern I'd use :-) So I'm curious what others would make from it too. I too like the hourglass but I ruined the only one I tried..........

    We have a member in our guild who has made many red & white quilts. Some are pieced blocks; some are made with hand sewn needle turned applique. She always carries her sewing basket with her to guild & hand sews during the meetings. I've forgotten her name now, but we had a guest speaker at guild last year who specializes in red & white quilts. You might just try googling it or browsing Pinterest or the web for ideas. Jacob's Ladder is one pattern that comes to mind. If you don't want to use just those reds, add some blues & make a Quilt of Valor.

    I have a jelly roll of ...Wilmington Reds, I think.? that I intend to use with cream/ivory/bone and make red stars on a cream background. Maybe with some additional feature, like red squares on point in the corners of the blocks.

    It's kind of far down on my list of plans, though, so by the time I get to it, I may change my mind. I also think it would be nice to have about 5 or 6 different types of red and cream blocks. Not just stars, but a few more old fashioned blocks, like churn dash, nine patch, more I can't think of.

    Do a redwork quilt and have 4 or 9 patches on the diagonal to separate the blocks.

    I'd try an Irish Chain. I love that pattern.

    I don't know that I would make an all red and white quilt, personally, but if I had it, I would use it for a QOV or add to green/Christmas fabric for a Christmas quilt.

    Kathryn Kerr of Green Avenue Quilts, who started the 365 quilt challenge a couple of years ago, has a block of the week called "Etoiles Rouges" featuring 49 variations of red and white Ohio Stars.
