Color Challenge #9 : Tomato Red

I had a clever post at one time, until I deleted it when it posted at the same time as last weeks color.  I wasn't even going to have this color this week, BUT, I cleaned my studio and I can not, for the life of me, Find my other blocks...(already made...) sigh...so I have now made this NEW block.
Mostly because, I can not make a quilt without BRIGHT ORANGE-Y RED, or Tangerine TANGO as they call it at Pantone!
Besides, I feel, it's not about dull colors  in this color challenge... It's about looking at colors individually and trying new combos of colors. Besides, some of you may avoid BRIGHT red. Some may favor DULL red, or dark red or pink red... I like a good ORANGE RED...TOMATO RED!

Beautiful block. I just hate it when things disappear. Always a sure sign that a bit of cleaning is on the way.

Yum! What a great tomato red print you have. And love the color combos too! They really pop on the brown background.
