Red Saturday

Red is one color that I have lots of in my stash thanks to my grandson's request for a red, gray, and black graduation quilt. He wanted no repeats in the pattern which meant 70 different fabrics in gray, black, and mostly red. His quilt has only 2 repeats b/c I wanted to finish and had all that was available locally.
Kats-Black & Red
My red quilt for this Saturday is Kats-Black & Red. The top is finished and the backing made. It leaves for the quilter on Tuesday.
This will be a charity quilt. I originally planned for it to go to an acquaintance that  tended to feral cats. She was going to raffle it off to help pay the vet bills. But she has been unavailable for months and so it will go to Bridge House in Denham Springs for a pre-teen girl.
May the fabric you need turn up in your stash w/o a purchase and KEEP 2011 STRESS FREE.
