Your family RR quilt looks amazing! I really love the black and red together. It feels so great when you have just enough fabric to finish a project. Like it was meant to be :)

Just lovely, Barb! I love the fall colors. It's so different from what we've seen you make the past few months. I particularly like the butterfly. How large is it and what are your plans for it?
