So here's a project that's not red and I don't have to design . . .
Last fall I picked up a kit for this quilt at Pieceful Heart Fabrics in Lisle, Illinois. It's what I would call a "good old quilt". Not a company quilt, not a show quilt, not a put on the guest room bed quilt, just a good old throw on the back of the couch, let the dog lay on it quilt.
The pattern is by Paula Barnes for Bonnie Blue Quilts and is called James River Blues. I've seen this pattern kitted in other shops, but always with scrappy blue fabrics, I really like the looks of this pattern with some browns thrown in.

I'm normally not a kit person, but when I do buy a kit I usually end up adding and subtracting so much fabric that my project doesn't end up looking much like the original. After a summer of red and white math, red and white mini quilts, and red and white fabric, this is just what I need, no changes, no thinking, just easy piecing.
