I knew that it wouldn't be a great idea to cut up everything in part 1.... and boy am I ever so glad I listened to myself. I told myself "Wait until I need the red before I cut it!"
Here is what I had picked.... but when laid out with the blocks... the print was too distracting. I really like the shade of red... and tried to find something similar in that color.
Wow, this one would really be a "stashbuster" look at the selvage date "1994" ....and there is enough, over 2 yards... sorta looks like snow falling with the scattered dots. Already prewashed too.....
But then I saw on my shelf this other red (below photo at the top of the pic) - it's leftover fabric that I used as a backing on a string quilt... perfect! But wait.... NOT ENOUGH :(
What else is on the shelf? Hummm... this red tonal with holly leaves printed on it. It seems a bit BRIGHT -is there such a thing as "Royal Red"? If so I think this would qualify.
Love from Texas!
