seeing red

a friend of mine asked me to make a couple of quilts for him to take to the angels games to keep him warm while he knits. uhm, to watch baseball i mean. the only stipulation he gave me was that he wanted it to be red overall, as red is his favorite color.

so i quickly got a hold of a bunch of various reds and got going...

i knew i wanted to make two different quilts, but have them relate somehow. in the end, one was half square triangles with just the reds, and the other was concentric squares with a splash of aqua and black thrown in.

both are backed with kona cotton in various shades of red, as well i used kona cotton in chinese red for the binding on both.

i am glad he loved them both, and maybe i'll see them on tv when baseball season starts up again.
