a little blue....... and red....


My orders from the Fat quarter shop and Ericas have arrived. sometimes I think I like the search for fabrics the most. I needed some more blues and reds to go with my dutch fabrics. They both had a beautiful selection of Redwork Bluework revival fabrics. I ended up ordering some more today- some red on white and that will complete the stash, but I would still like some nice red gingham......... Then I will have equal varieties of blue and red.


I have fussy cut some 4 1/2 in squares from the dutch picture fabrics and I will border them in the red and blue fabrics.
I think they are quite sweet but after this I definitely need to consider a different colour selection! I am drowning in blue and white.

On another topic I have posted my paper bag swap to Helz and I hope she likes it.
Here is a little peek...


Cheers for now.
