In the Red





















Finished! My red scraps are now down to a very few, and I think I'm going to hang on to those for the time being. It ended up with asymmetric borders and a strip of light green down one side just to bring it to life. Now all I need to do is decide where to hang it, not an easy decision as it is very 'in your face'.

Now what will next month bring? I bet it's green, though I hope it's not as I have loads of green scraps to use up. Well, I'll just have to wait and see.

What a happy quilt! I love all the words as well at the extra crumb blocks that you threw in there. Congratulations on getting it done on time. I hope you aren't too opposed to doing something with that load of green scraps.......
