Red Challenge

Boy I am just slipping in under the wire on this one! A little ways thru I kind of lost my desire to finish it. I kind of lost my desire to do much of any piecing as I was quilting a gorgeous huge 124 x 124 inch log cabin - and it was fun.....

Anyways here is my Red Monochromatic Challenge quilt for May.  I just ( and I mean JUST) put the borders on.... we came home from practice, I did chores, fed the kids, and told them it was time to go to their rooms to read!! And I put borders on. This quilt measures 55 x 75 - cuz you know I have to make it a Quilt of Valor size,
And I had some crazy Judy ideas for the borders, but then I realized today is the 31st.... and I went for easy!! And because I am a little competitive with myself I wanted it done!

Or at least into a top!

Love it looks great. When you guys all started this challenge I kind of thought the quilts would be boring with only one color but I have been loving them all.
