That’s what Kimmie wanted for her swap blocks. I love working with this color combination. It’s so dramatic. This first block design comes from the Kaleidoscope Collection from EQ.
The second block some of you may recognize. The center 6 inch square uses the Square-in-a-Square foundation from Miniatures in Minutes. I had made up the block as a sample last summer and it has just been sitting around since. The color combination was perfect for what Kimmie wanted. I needed a block that would finish at 12" for Kimmie so I added the outer strips. (Click here to go to the blog entry where I showed how to adapt the foundation from the book to make this block/quilt).

One of my quilt groups is about to start a round robin. I’ve been thinking hard about what to do for my center and what kind of theme to set up. The red/black/white combo is certainly on the list!
