Red is Best! At least that's what I'm told...

Red - It is the colour that I have the very least of in my stash. When I receive a custom order and they want red, I'm scrambling usually to find something with the few reds that reside in my fabric stash! It's not because I don't like it or anything, I just have found it hard to find reds that I really like, and especially finding reds that aren't paired with another colour. In the fabric design. Just tone on tone reds or So the last time I was looking for a red print and noticed that I had very few to choose from, I had decided it was time to find a nice little stash of reds that I could add into my fabric stash!

I scored well with my search this time and found eight assorted red FQs from Mad About Patchwork I really liked and have added them to my stash! Six of the eight fabrics are a nice cherry red with blue undertones, and two of them are more of a tomato red, with orange undertones. They all will go very well in my fabric stash!

My beautiful little Kokeshi doll from one of my Japanese Homestay girls ("H") looks quite lovely beside them don't you think!?

Now I think that i'm well stocked up on reds along with a few more that were in my already fabric stash! Time to break these in I think! Must make something with red now!

What colour do you have the least of in your fabric stash?
