Reversible vintage quilt- upcycled

I think the hummer was attracted to the reds in my latest quilt!

You wouldn't think that cutting apart two old quilts and sewing them back together would take so much time! But it was making this one totally reversible that required patience.

One side features pieced basket blocks while the other is simply solid red quilted blocks. But what reds! The old quilts were faded to varying shades of red which creates a wonderful dappled look set off to great effect (I think!) by the black print sashing strips joining the squares. The sashing on the other side is a solid light green which picks up on the basket handles. Even the binding is reversible so that it matches the sashing, no matter which side is displayed.
