    Yes, very striking! I like it. I'd like it scrappy with a bunch of different reds.

    I like this idea as well.

    I'm currently working on one that is 3 fabrics only. Reddish gold center; gold with dark flecks on one side and black w/gold on the other side. It's quite striking. For a friends son who will be graduating from HS next year and black/gold are the school colors. The backing is black/gold as well. Not sure yet what I'll do for a border, if any. And it will be a barn raising setting. Still 28 complete blocks to go and finishing a few more. And I haven't had any time to work on it for the last couple of weeks.

I'm thinking it would be quite pretty
    Black on one side, whites on the other, and red chimneys, would be gorgeous.

    My vote is for black on one side, white on the other, and red center square. I thing that would be vry pretty. You could use red for the borders to use more red in the quilt.
