This year the answer was Red, white and black......easy peachy. Well easy if I didn't wait until almost the last week of school to start this quilt :)
I used a white on white fabric, some nice beige and a cute farm print. For the punch I used a dark wine red as the border and appliqué Red EPP stars as a extra punch and interest. Where the quilt has simplicity in the piecing, I decided to quilt feathers with a swirl and pebbles filling.
Edit : Missing the binding and it is so cloudy outside I was not able to take a decent picture but I wanted to show the whole quilt. I will try to get a better (finished) picture as soon as the sun is out. (and it is nowhere as crooked at it look on this picture!!!)
