A Twist of Red - A Giveaway Quilt

Today's quilt is the 3 of 4 of our giveaway quilts.  We are on the home stretch now and our giveaway is almost ready to end.  Or at least Tanya hopes that it will end soon.  That will  means Julia is out and she can sleep with out her back hurting and not able to get comfortable.
 A Twist of Red is a twist on my Man Quilts.  If you look at the squares the only real pattern is the paisley blocks with red behind them.  All of the black and white squares go in a dark, then light pattern but none of them have more then 6 or so of the same print going across the quilt.  I was able to use up all of the left over blocks from my quilt.  I still have in the Man Quilt box squares in 6 different colors to make 1 more quilt.
 The kids took the pictures this morning while we tried to get ready on the day after daylight savings time. All of us are tired, so sorry for the slightly blurry pictures.  My son says tonight in the sun after school he will take some more pictures.
Tanya thought I was funny when I wanted the red behind the paisley with the gray behind the black and white blocks, but I think it turned out wonderful.  What do you think?
