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...
