I wonder why, some years ago I had a red and black period! Obviously it was not at all my style and I  quickly gave up this project. Until last week that my niece came to visit me. She is going to get married next June and I proposed to make her a quilt. Her lounge is decorated with grey tunes and a little red. As she told me she would like a quilt in those shades, I remembered this UFO, and when I showed her this project she loved it... so let's go on with my Rail Fence quilt!

  2. C'est formidable quand un UFO peut être terminé! Et en plus pour une si bonne cause! Et il a l'air vachement moderne!
    Le "rouge et le noir" me dit aussi qqch, j'avais acheté pour cela un tissu japonais dans ces couleurs comme tissu de base et le quilt a bien été fini (log-cabin). Seulement ce tissu resurgira toujours de quelque part - il est interminable ou il se multiplie tout seul ?!?? (Je crois que j'en aurai jusqu'à la fin de ma vie.)Il y a des tissus comme ça!
    Je trouve que le mot "striking" convient à ton quilt! Me réjouis de le voir fini!
    Best wishes!
