The colour doesnt show up quite so well in the photos but I adore the red and blue floral fabric. It gives the quilt a really vintage feel (which I love) and the red is more of a rust colour. We are currently in the process of trying to pick another fabric to add into the mix - either with a bit more brown or more rust. We've done 7 squares so far and have another 5 or so to go before we can piece it together into the top.
I wish I could say that this has left me addicted to quilting but it's too fiddly for me. I'm not really a hand stitcher I think. Next time I will try something a bit more patchworky and not as detailed. But it has fed the crafty bug inside me and got me started on a few different projects which I'll post another day.
