Hunt for Red November!

A quick survey of my scraps revealed 2 bits of red...each less than 2" square. Help! Stash not much more promising...50 shades of orange or pink...but only 5 reds. One of them was a horrid dark brick red, one (the black red batik) only 8" square (saved for a occasion such as this!)

Cut 3 more 8" squares from the 3 nicer fabrics, laid them on top of one another and sliced twice.
Diced in strips, twisted and turned them. Hope there's enoughtvariety in them for you, Nifty!



Going to Malvern Quilt Festival on Friday...a good opportunity to REDress the balance of my stash!

I think these are great. THere are no ugly fabrics, only those who haven't found a home yet. I think anyone that has been quilting for awhile has a few of those "why did I buy this?!!!" fabrics in their stash. You made good use of yours. Bonnie

You're right, Bonnie. Wouldn't a ugly fabric swap site be a good idea - there's someone out there for every fabric...maybe!!
