So while photographs are relatively few, there definitely is a back story to this quilt.
I have long been a fan of Kelly Liddle of @jeliquilts. I had also wanted to make a two-color quilt for a long time. The thing about two-color quilts, for me there is a high boredom factor. I think I could do it if I chose a scrappy version because the variety of prints would keep me interested. In this case, because I wanted to use solid red, I needed to have a variety of block styles.
I do not profess to be a pattern writer. I don't know how to use pattern-designing programs like EQ8. Most of the time I get out a sheet of graph paper and my colored pencils. However, in this case...I had an idea in my head and this was the only "pattern" I followed.
