Reds...


Don't let a stack of pretty fabrics paralyze you... sometimes it is hard to decide exactly what to do. Well, first things first - pick a pattern, pick colors, start cutting. I was in no mood to do the 1st two things on that list, but I am in the mood to do some mindless chain sewing, so that forced me into action...

I went with mostly reds, a few oranges, a few pinks... when undecided about what to do - I repeat a favorite pattern. So - here is the beginnings of another Ocean Waves, not green this time, but red. Monochromatic scrappy - I love that look! It is easy too - no agonizing decisions about color choices - just grab a handful of 1 color family and make sure there are some "zingers" - a bit of contrast. I almost left out 2 of them, but decided they would really add a bit of fun to the quilt, so slice, slice!!! And up in the top corner, a little pile of scraps to add to my collection. Can't be a scrap quilter without scraps, right?

An Ocean Waves quilt would be so fun in reds. I want to make one too! I will do my best to control myself and finish up the things I have started.
