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.

This is the focal fabric, with all the others picking up these colors:

Some of the other fabrics:

I quilted a serpentine line in all of the larger pieces, with line dancing in the smaller triangles:

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:
