Reds for the Stash
My stash of red fabric has grown considerably since I began this quilt. Last week I travelled to Melbourne to do a spot of grandmother duty. On the weekend I travelled in the opposite direction for a belated wedding anniversary weekend. So, I was able to visit a few shops I rarely get to and I took the opportuntity to add to the red collection.
Peddlers Pack by Judy Roche and Corienne Kramer for Henry Glass fabrics; and another Windham fabric.
And finally a very pretty Dear Jane and one of Barbara Brackman's Battle Hymn.
The fabric I used for Nancy Smith's block is one of my favourites. The selvedge says Circa 1845 by Roberta Benoin for P&B Textiles.
Red is an excellent colour - especially with green.
