Ann's "Newspaper" quilt

This Irish Chain quilt came to me from my client, Ann. I have worked on a few quilts over the years that had a similar color-scheme - black, white, and red - and every time, I'm reminded of one of the first jokes I learned as a youngster. What's black, white, and red all over?.... a newspaper (get it? black, white, and READ)! (Insert forehead slap and eye roll)

Ann requested RED thread, even in the non-red areas of the quilt. She is such an adventurous quilter! Contrasting thread color is always a bold choice, much like Ann herself - BOLD! I think it turned out great. She made the right call!
