Wallowing in Red

Gom informs me, he wants this, the red quilt, for his Christmas present. A few days ago, I asked him if he liked 'red'. He seemed indifferent.
"It is ok".
Hmmmph!
But as he has watched it evolve he has fallen in love. He does love bright colours, He is a Sun sign. What can I say? They like heat, bright colours! RED!

Besides, I have grown rather fond of this, my most feared colour! I am happy with way it has grown. I have had non~zen days with this quilt top. I have wished it was easy.

Hah! As if!!
They do say nothing good, comes easy! 'They' might be right!! haha!

The Cure, In Between Days


I am not sure of the mystique of this track, but it is disabled on most sites. It is a familiar song in our house. Not recently, I will grant you.

You have done so many things, here, to bring new life to the familiar nine-patch. I am fascinated.

It's looking really good! Looks like you figured out the setting triangles. The multi-colored corner stones are a fabulous touch.

Yeah, I'm not usually a fan of the red and I never got maths either - so I am proud of you for getting this far. The quilt is growing into a real beauty.

It looks rather cheery, actually.

No wonder Gom has fallen in love with it - it's gorgeous! You managed to work out the spacing between turning the 9 patches on their points then? Good for you! x

We sun signs do love our bright colors.

I think that is why I feel so at home in places like the Caribbean.

Tanya said...

Your red quilt is fantastic! I can see why your husband wants it! I don't know if anyone in my house would ask for a red quilt either but if they saw this one they would!

I love that quilt. I've always shied away from red but lately I'm finding myself more and more drawn to it. Think I'll have to start buying some red fabrics!!
