Hello Everyone,

I may have mentioned that my daughter will be heading to college in August... so being the good quilting mom that I am,  I can't possibly send her without a college quilt.

The school colors are cherry red and white.

So I picked a nice selection of reds from my stash.  Funny when I was looking for cherry red, I kept finding more orangey reds and fuchsia.  Weird, I thought I had mostly cherry reds and I have A LOT of red in my stash.  This is what I came up with and I think they are pretty good.  

Yes, there is one orangey red there, but for what I have planned it should work fine.

Of course I couldn't go with just plain old white, I thought that would be too boring for her.  So, I did some more stash diving and came up breathing with the above black and white fabrics.  I might add more to give it more interest.

They are all washed, mostly because red is just notorious for bleeding.  Since I am pairing them with predominantly white fabrics this is definitely a concern.  I threw 2 Shout Color Catchers into the wash with the reds and they really took TONS of the red out.

Now I am ready to cut!  This one is going to be fun.  My own design and lots and lots of little squares.  But I only have about a 1.5 months to do it... eek!  

I need to run and put the pedal to the metal.... see you soon!

Until Next Time...
