Black/Red Baby Quilt - Phase 1

The two dies I had been waiting for have finally arrived (yay!), which means I can get started with the quilt.  I purchased a 5" charm square and 1 1/2" strip, which I imagine will come into a great deal of use.

So now begins the process of planning the pattern as well as washing and pressing the fabric and cutting all the pieces. My hope is to get it all done by the end of the week so I can start sewing in earnest over the next two weeks.  This quilt will be simple, though more involved and looking more traditionally "quilt-like" than the last.
