The idea we had on the phone (with the red using the front and the back) had to be scratched. The red April picked up was the backing for another quilt. One of the babies in need quilts. It was pieced together and everything. Oh well, we auditioned other fabrics. I dug into the Rag Quilt bin and found these. The first two pictures show a small red border and a very light pink with small dots. You can see it better in the second picture.
These two pictures have the brighter pink next to the small red border and April put some two inch squares on top to get the idea of four patches. What do you think. The pink is a small stripe. I have two yards of this fabric and I think it is my favorite so far. But there will be another border after this and it will be at least 6 inches wide. So we will have to find another color for that. Maybe a darker blue or a medium blue or a green? What do you think.
