I made quilts for all the employees at work. This one was for my boss. Months ago, I asked his wife what was his favorite color? The answer Grey. I could not make an all grey quilt, therefore, the small touches of red. It was supposed to be the Cutting Corners Quilt pattern from MSQC but I didn't like it once I laid it out. I tried flying geese and chevrons but it sti. ll did not appeal to me. At last, the a round the world design looked best to me.
