ID:	157971well, I've worked really hard to get this one together and hung it on the design wall and it just doesn't feel like a black and white quilt. It feels red. I'm considering piecing a backing for it in red white & black but haven't decided if it should be three horizontal pieces or maybe go with the design theme and hack out a long triangle, a rectangle and a parallelogram (?) like the pieces on the front, or maybe cut the pieces to form a 9 patch, or....oh the choices I could have.
    I have two plus yards of each. Any ideas.

    A 9 patch of the three colors!!

    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    Grammaterry you have done a wonderful job does not look very white and black because red makes me stand out and I love the border, how much patience, as for the back I would do it as simple as possible because what really should stand out is that beautiful work from the front but you know that you are the one who decides, congratulations

    It's beautiful! I'm not sure what to do for the back, but I know you'll make it amazing!

    Terry- That's crazy cool. Love it! The balance of color is so good, one can see whatever they want it to be- black and white, or red. Really fun. So... the red (on my monitor) is a deeper red -really rich looking. If it were mine I'd do the same red on the back.
    You gots to risk it to gets the biscuit-
