Reds


New red fabrics and lots of pretty reds and salmon colors used in Le Jardin's Block #2:











Here are the new red and cream fabrics I purchased for my Snowbound Irish Chain blocks:  I strip pieced the little nine-patch squares:.s  You might think that these reds do not go with the blue background fabric for my snowman.  The design shows a blue background for all the snowmen with a red Irish Chain having cream colored backgrounds.  When I placed my Block #1 with the fabrics, it looked fine.  The reds in the block pick up the Irish Chain red.

I am so loving that Le Jardin quilt. It looks beautiful. Such fantastic colors. And I am also drooling over those fabrics for the Snowbound quilt - can't wait to see them together with the snowman.
