Where is all this red coming from?
I never was a big red fan, don't wear it and don't decorate with it (I think a red room would raise my blood pressure and get on my last nerve) but recently I've been making a lot of quilts featuring red. Not as much as this one, though. It's red in a big way.
It's a mini version of the quilt I made for my nephew's son two years ago. That one was more red/white/blue/gold, this one is red/brown/tan/teal/ivory. That pattern stuck in my head and when confronted with charm packs of "Friendship Collection for a Cause" I knew I had to go for it. Luckily, I had that red yardage in the closet that blended very well.
Next I want to make a mini version of the one I sent to my nephew's younger daughter. I loved all the quilts I sent to them, but don't want to make a second one in full size. These little quilts will do just fine!
