I HATE RED!!
It sounds crazy to say that and it’s really about the values of red compared to other colors. I wanted to do another Folded Box block for March to go with the others.
See the strong contrast here that gives it a 3-D effect? You can do that with lots of colors, but not with red. On this color chart sample you see instantly that all the other colors have a range from light to dark, but look at red. Blah, nada, only ONE value.
So I can’t make a Folded Box this month. I will have to substitute the pink one I made last year as a sample, which turned out very well. That’s the end of my rant about red.
I did make two red Geese Migration blocks, one using more rosy red to get some variety.
I’m making great progress on these blocks, have18 out of 30 finished. Some folks said they would like to see more of them at once, so here is a selection. The blocks are super simple with only five seams in the 12.5 inch block. Most blocks have red/orange/lavender to join up for sashing and the outer ones will have a gorgeous red print for the entire border.
I love these Kaffe Fassett fabrics and can’t wait to use it on my own bed. Perhaps it will be so bright I won’t be able to get to sleep!
Happy Quilt Appreciation Day to all of you. I hope we all are able to enjoy spring very soon. We have lots of birds, but no flowers yet.
