Red & White Crazy Shortcut Quilt on YouTube
For all my quilting friends here is a YouTube video technique by Marguerita McManus author of the book “Crazy Shortcut Quilts”. She will show you how to take strips, sew them into blocks and finish the blocks, even before they are completed as a quilt. Without furthe ado… enjoy!

I’ll let you in on a little secret: Grandma Rachel created our QuiltRed CD with help from our program designer. It includes 12 red & white pieced quilt projects, 12 redwork quilt projects, 3 redwork pillow projects and 13 full-size redwork embroidery patterns. QuiltRed™ was inspired by the American Heart Association’s “Go Red for Women” campaign, which focuses attention on heart health, encouraging women to take good care of their hearts.

Look what else I found on her website:
Apples. Peel, core and slice. Use a mix of Apples for texture and flavor.
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 to 1/2 cup white Sugar depending on taste.
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon Clove
1/8 teaspoon Salt
Place sliced apples in a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients and toss gently. If the apples are dry, add two or more tablespoons water or apple juice. Arrange slices in prepared pie nine inch plate. Dot with butter. Cover with upper crust. Prick. Brush top of crust with one egg white that has been beaten and
sprinkle with sugar. Place pie in hot oven 450 degrees for ten minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake until done — 45 to 60 minutes. If the edges of the crust brown too quickly, cover them with aluminum foil.
