My house is red, my carriage house is red, my car is red, my journal and day planner are red, what can I say, I am a red and black accent lover - I am in the process of doing my first at-home project in years, making RED accent pillows for my 2nd hand couch - I am scared to death, but would love to use your fabrics - first time to your blog, found it thru Facebook on fabric.com and I can't wait to check out and try your tutorials. I loved reading your little bio and can only say that if you asked my family and friends 'what' color is me - it's all about RED! It's the color of my heart, so from my Carriage House to you, let's remember, connect and celebrate life and using our hands to work and giving our hearts to God! Happy to be retired at 47 to create works of Heart! Vicki

just beautiful and I love red. The displays are truly inspired. Those of us on the outside of quiltmarket would love to be able to go just for the eye candy.

Anonymous said...

wow! What a beautiful combination; it's so life-like. I love floral & this is a print I would buy, I can see it as a stunning center to a quilt along with the complimentary colours of the other fabrics in the border. I would be very proud to own these prints; the colours compliment each other so well. They are bright, but warm at the same time. Thank you for sharing your wonderful flare of talent.

Jackie said...

My daughter-in-law loves the color red and all of these prints inspire me to sew something special for her birthday!
