Marilyn's Red & Black Quilt
Marilyn pieced this to give as a gift. It's a great quilt - and I'd have a hard time giving it away :) It's 100 x 100. I used a grey/white/black variegated thread that blends well.

The larger triangles of the focal fabric have a fern:
Feathers are perfect for the long white diagonals:
The same serpentine line in the white border. The outer border has a simple meander as it really doesn't sow in the busy fabric.
The backing is a black/grey mix. The color is darker than shows here:
