You've been Quilt Bombed!!

This is my first time trying the Something Completely Different Challenge. The theme is Claret and Blue.

I'd yarnbomb you but I can't knit.
I have been wanting to make this "quilt bomb" for months...I love guerilla art and yarnbombing, but just don't have the patience for knitting. I love those yarnbombing folks who knit up covers for bike racks and light posts, jazz up construction sites and other drab places. I am jealous of them.
But I can quilt.
This little quilt is going to sneak into a local indy bookstore, I think. Hope they like it when they notice their new bathroom art.
