Finished, Black and White and Red and ...

I  finished this quilt yesterday although I admit I didn't make most of it.  There are16 12-inch squares most of which came to me in block swaps.  I was in two long running monthly swaps, one for black and white squares and one or black-white-red squares.  Wonderful how people came up with so many different patterns, some new to me.  A bit of yellow sneaked in there and I like it. 

When I went through my closet I saw that I've got enough additional 12-inch squares to make another quilt like (and of course not like) this.  I'll do that.  But not just now.  This will be put away for the next charity call my quilt guild has -- the last one was Hurricane Sandy (not counting the block call after the Boston Marathon bombing).  Perhaps I'll have a second similar quilt done before there is another serious need.

Great job putting it all together. Really is a nice array!

Di, there's one block you made, it's on the other side of the bed--just a wee bit of the top of it is visible in the middle of the far side.
