only red

I didn't know I liked red.
We were instructed to make a quilt using the Monkey Wrench block and red fabric. Only red, which of course meant, red, burgundy, pink, scarlet and any other member of the family.
I made a mini quilt, and whacked the fabric pieces up willy nilly without taking undue time to measure. Hence, the three blocks with three different size strips. Still, it went together like clock work and has a certain charm about it. I sewed vintage buttons in the centers as a visual distraction. I tried abit of machine quilting, very tentatively and pronounced it complete. Quilts like any artwork are only finished when nothing more needs to be added. The end.
