Black and White and Red All Over

Staying with the same color scheme as yesterday, here's another Christmas gift. My eldest son and his sweetie are decorating their apartment in black and red with white accents. I discovered the book Skinny Quilts & Table Runners by That Patchwork Place last February when I was in Houston visiting my friend, the quilt shop owner. The book is a compilation "from today's top designers". The pattern I picked is called Astrological by Marti Michell. I knew then it would work up really nice in their colors but didn't get around to making it until this last trip to Houston. It is also my first attempt at machine quilting(just a little cross-hatching).

Hubby and I are headed to Toledo today. He's being fitted for a new driver. He may not be able to play golf right now but it doesn't stop him from thinking about it and planning for next season. I'm going along to scope out a couple of quilt shops there. Isn't it nice that quilt season runs from January 1 thru December 31!! I'm hoping to find some great end-of-the-year sales!!

Happy New Year to all!!
