This is the quilt that nearly ended up as scrap fabric in my scrap bin. During the cutting and design floor process, I really wasn't feeling the quilt love, and almost threw in the towel. At that "almost" point the fabrics used were almost exclusively red, red, and red, and moreover the reds varied so much in hue (from pink to orange and blue) that it just became unpleasant to look at.
I am looking forward to quilting this quilt, but first I need to make the backing and then baste it. It feels like a busy sewing weekend coming up; perfect for our blustery and cold Winter weather.
