Seeing Red

This was done probably ten years ago - it has been a while.  One of my first big paper piecing projects, I gathered all my reds and printed out a bunch of blocks and enjoyed putting together the different shades of red with a bit of gold.  My favorite color!

The reason I am posting this now is that I am working on my project that I cannot post and thought I would find something to put up.  The project is 3/4th appliqued and I just made a decision for an addition and found the perfect fabric to use!  I tried about three other pieces and they might have worked but finally came across one that I just loved.  That's a good feeling, isn't it, when things kind of fall in place. 

This has been another gloomy day - but not to complain, I feel so for the people in the south whose lives have been turned upside down by the terrible storms this week.   We certainly can take some gloomy days.  (Click to enlarge)

That really needs to be sent off to be quilted. It is a wonderful quilt, and looks like fabrics from today. I love the reds. I spent the whole day inside also, really too gloomy to be outside, cooked, and did some applique. Hope that the sun comes out for the weekend.
