Red and Aqua Stash

Ok, so I have been collecting red and aqua fabrics now for quite some time. This photo show the fat quarters I have collected thus far. I really love this color combination. Though at the moment I am wishing I had a red and tangerine collection as well. Such yummy colors! I'm debating what project I want to do with these fabrics and am hemming and hawing whether or not to do a wonky log cabin quilt with them. We shall see, I still have some other projects on the go at the moment (don't I always?). I can't wait to finish the birds of a feather quilt but the thread color I need is back ordered so I have to wait.

In the meantime, I can enjoy the beautiful farm views! Check out this rainbow and green grass! It has been a beautiful spring. The weather is warming up now and now I can substitute my treadmill workouts for swimming instead! Bliss. Yesterday I managed to swim within two feet of a platypus, which was good unless you consider how many times I've been frightened by platypus swimming by me thinking they were a snake. Well, anyway, keeps the heart rate up!

I too am working on a collection of Red and Aquas. Just like you I am on a debate on what to do with them. I think I am going to make a quilt like Oh Fransson's Scrappy Hedgerow Blocks. But that can always change. LOL I will be watching to see what you decide.

I just finished piecing and quilting my first red and aqua quilt and I love the color combo. Usually I need to switch to another color after working on a quilt, but I am now using the scraps in another quilt.

Platypus - so cool! They have always fascinated me.

Love the stash. This will become a great looking quilt. The red and aquas look terrific together. Keep on posting your progress.
