As Red As It Gets

In honor of Valentine's Day this Saturday, here's my weekly quilt, 7/52.2009 ~ My Funny Valentine. I'm not a big fan of the color red, so I prefer to use colors that read as red -- you'll notice that the colors in this piece are magenta, plum and orange. But it reads as though it were red, and that's good enough for me.

This was a fun little fabric collage that I also stamped on with metallic paint. I particularly like quilting those painted areas. I'm actually not completely satisfied with the quilting on two of the center black & white pieces, and may redo that part. Depends on how much of a perfectionist I feel I need to be!

This reminds me of a quilt challenge that one of my friends participated in some time ago. "Black and White and Red All Over" It's a very attractive piece.
