If you have seen Moda Solstic in person, can you tell me if the red is red-red?
 
I don't like red-orange in my Christmas colors and don't have a chance to see in person this line but want to buy a quilt kit. Is the red in this line a red-red or closer to a red-orange? I prefer my reds to be more like cranberry or raspberry. Just hoping to find out before ordering. Thanks.

Here is the fabric: http://www.christmascloth.com/solstice-mini-charm-pack

I checked out the web site -- certainly do like the fabric but I haven't seen it in person. Hope you find the answer!

I haven't seen this in person but this website describes it as berry-toned reds

I think I've seen it and its kind od a true red. more strawberry than cranberry but not orangey.

It looks like a true red to me.

It is so hard to determine colors from the computer monitor. Look at this page http://www.christmascloth.com/moda-f...here/limit/all

and scroll down to look at the individual fabric swatches from this line. The swatches of all the green colors look much more "olive" than the "grass" green in the image of the fat quarter set and the small set of swatches in the charm pack link I posted above. The blues look more like greys??? I don't really like the "olive" tone so now I think I'll need to order a charm pack and hope the quilt kit stays in stock long enough for me to receive the charm pack and decide.

The reds are red- red. The greens do vary in shading from a bit olive tone to grass green-- like mistletoe. The blues are lighter blues and some are actually grey like you thought. Hope this helps.
