color challenge #9... tomato red...






This week's color challenge from Victoria is "tomato red". Because so many of my blocks have lots of orange and rust, I decided to add darker and cooler tones. I mixed in baby and hot pinks, burgundies and a bit of green for contrast. The pink looks more dominant in the photo than in life. Still can't find my "orange" one which means it is definitely time to tidy up my space!

Here is my starter fabric on the lower left with the added fabrics...

  1. Do you have a pattern for your block? It's so pretty.

    1. Thanks Ruth. I don't have a pattern as I drafted it from photo of an antique tile. I could post a schematic if that would help...
