    "Red-y for A Change" - quilt top

    I made this fun quilt top this week. It was originally published as Bainbridge Delft (all done in gorgeous blues...) in the book "Bargello Quilts with A Twist", by Maggie Ball, and then re-published into the book "Sensational Small Quilts" which I just received as a surprise late Christmas gift.

    The book arrived at the right time to help lift my spirits and a winter slump. I started to think all my quilts were too similar in appearance (well yes, as I have been pulling fabrics from my greens and blues and oranges and neutrals in my stash for a year now). But there is another bin of fabric and it hadn't seen the light of day in a very long time. It was the red fabrics. So I sorted those into further color groups - scarlet, brick, tomato, pinkish.... and I decided to go with the scarlets for this quilt.

    Thanks for looking and happy sewing.

    It is an awesome quilt .... looks intricate (I'm trying to figure out the layout.)! Those reds will certainly lighten any room. Glad you've got your groove back!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Love it! You can't go wrong with reds. Is 2013 going to be a red year for you?

    Wow, it's gorgeous! I love red, but for some reason I don't use it often. I am working on a quiltalong and I'm using some red fabrics, after seeing your beauty I think I need to use more red.
