This blog should be called "The Adventures of a Fabric Junkie!". I am passionate about fabric, threads, colours and textures. I can record my crazy quilting, sane quilting, embroidery and everything else that I consider important in my life.

Tone on Tone RR block for Southern Cross Crazies

This is block which will be used for the Tone on Tone Round Robin
 The latest Round Robin for SCC has a Tone-on-Tone theme.  Seeing as I am busy with my cream on cream blocks for my quilt so I thought I would make two red/hot pink blocks and make a tote bag for a Chinese workmate who loves bright colours.  One block will stay with me while the other one will travel around Australia and New Zealand being worked on.  When the block comes home in five months, I'll make up the bag for my friend Debbie.  The Red/Hot pink colour scheme is waaaay out of my comfort zone which makes it more of a challenge for me.  I am now into the fun stuff of finding suitable coloured threads, braids, charms, buttons and beads with which to decorate it.

What a suprise to see your bright colourful block. My latest one had red in it and I agree with you that it is a bit of a challenge.
Will be interested to see how we both cope with it.
