I was really inspired by the Old Kentucky Album pattern from Bonnie Hunter in the January/February 2010 edition of Quiltmaker's magazine.  From the ol' 2" strip bin, I pulled out a variety of strips in black, green, blue and mauve. But none of these had a lot of "zing" to them and thought a variety of reds would put some spice to the blocks and lend some consistency to the overall look. Also for consistency, I chose one background of white/tan checks to help tie it all together.  Although I only made 20 blocks, it was still amazing how fast and easy the blocks were.  I'll definitely be making more of these Old Kentucky Album quilts, especially when I need a quilt in a hurry!

I like this one. It's fun to just let your eyes wander over it. If you don't focus too hard it looks like the back of an old wicker chair. Very cool. Well Done!
