Fall Bloggers Quilt Festival

I can't believe that it is already time for the Fall Quilt Bloggers Festival.  This is one blogging event that I always look forward to.  I am showing one of  my all time favorite quilts.  This is the first neutral quilt that I ever made.  (to me red is a neutral).  I found the pattern in one of the McCall's quilting magazines several years ago and started collecting neutrals.  The one shown in the magazine had brown stars and accent squares, but I knew that I wanted mine to be a shade of red.  This was a really, really easy quilt to make.  I am thinking about making another one and using black for the stars and accent squares.
