I think I have found my fabrics!!

After some discussion with myself, I think I have made the right decision about my fabrics for the quilt. I have 4 dark red and 4 light with diff. pattern in red/pink. I'm not sure of these light ones. May be I can find some a bit darker when I'm going to the Quilting annual meeting next weekend.
As you can see I have finished 1,5 stitchery. I love the motives.


Wish you all a lovely weekend!

The fabric choice is great - I have found from viewing other people's blocks that the darker colour looks better next to the stitchery. Although, you probably already know that....hehe.
Happy Stitching, Susie
