This quilt grew from the center outward. It was fun to play with the reds and greens to make positive and negative spaces in the blocks. I took inspiration from the Gees Bend quilts for this one. I think the red and white striped fabric adds a little pizaaz, although it's a little hard on the eyes when viewed on the computer screen. I don't know if this quilt says Christmas, but it sure was fun to make. Happy quilting! Hugs to you.
