Reds, neutrals and WIP's

Not sure why photographing fabric is so tricky, but this is the true colour of the three cream neutrals I brought in a gorgeous shop in Nhill at a bargain price. I will be going back HERE to shop again!
 And this is the true colour of the red I brought in Bordertown. 
The neutrals are for my stash and the red is for the scrappy red and purple bargello quilt, which at least I have added a neutral border to, since taking this photo.  I had to exhaust all possibilities hunting for the perfect border fabric that didn't exist to work out that a solid was the best idea...well that and the wisdom of my quilting buddies who convinced me to go with a solid!
Finally a bit more action taking place on the dresdens.  More single units made, stitched into pairs, then fours....
Nearly got the plates all made up...then to decide on a background fabric....hmmm, more fabric shopping required?!
Red is the Rainbow Scrappy Challenge colour for July.  I haven't made a single red block for RSC and we are nearly halfway through the month.....but school holidays finish Monday ; )
Happy quilting Sue.

  1. While you may not have made a RSC block, it looks like you have gotten plenty of red done this month. The Dresden's are going to be lovely. Isn't it terrible when you MUST shop to finish a project. Enjoy!

  7. How great is it to find a shop that sells what you want. Those are wonderful neutrals. Great job withe bargello quilt. A solid border sounds like a good match. Do you have many more dresdens to make?

  10. Love those red and whites. A solid red border for the bargello sounds like the best way to frame the quilt. Happy sewing.
