Really RED Quilt

I am nearly finished with my Red Rose quilt. In an attempt to be thrifty, I decided to use only fabric in my stash for this quilt. Ive had the background rose fabric for a long time.

I thought I would gather all the similar, happy feeling fabrics I had to make co-ordinating blocks. Well, the result is...ah...really RED! I fear it is a bit over powering.

I will forge ahead to finish it as soon as I can figure out a border for it.

Making these individual blocks was fun, using lots of different fabric to mix and match.

I'm hoping that a machine quilter can do her magic and I will like it better when it's finished.  Thank you for visiting me today. Visitors make me happy. Love, Derrith
