Black, White & Red Quilt

As you all should know by now I love the color combo black/white & whatever color for some punch.  Last year I made a hobo bag out of black/white/red fabric, which I have been hoarding the rest of since then.  I have been looking for more fabric to match and finally found some.  Yes, I had to stop myself.

Once I was happy with the fabric selection, I found the perfect pattern for the quilt.  Man, I sure do love simple easy quilt patterns.  This quilt pattern is from called High Light.   

One thing I have to say about simple easy patterns, you can spend a couple of hours cutting out the pieces and still have time to spend with the family.  While the guys went to a hunting/fishing expo this past Saturday, I spent the time cutting out the fabric.  When they got home the hubster and I watched the NFL games.  I worked on sewing the blocks together while everyone was at work/school.  This morning I worked on the borders.  Now I am at the point to sandwich it all together and bind it. 

Here is the quilt so far. 

I will post in a couple of days when I am done with it...
