A pop of red

Black and grey and red.
These colors have been swimming around in my head since I saw a quilt on flickr.  And it wasn't so much the same color palette, you can see for yourself, here.  It was this formula for 25% red and everything else reads as a neutral.  Not too much red.  Not overwhelming.  Just the pop.

First I did a single improv block...thinking maybe it's a pot holder.

Then I did some string blocks...then some more...and I've bought more gray and red fabric...for more blocks...maybe more quilts, actually.

I'm almost done with this quilt.  So of course I have lots of strips leftover.  I could do this, or this next.
Or more koozies.  Never enough of those when you're having people over.

Imagine my surprise when I saw a sneak peak of the next issue of Fat Quarterly.

Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

Someone's been peeping in my window!

And they have excellent taste.
