Aqua & Red...

So.
I joined a bee.  

Why?  Cuz they're fun.  

And, because I have nothing else to do.

It's called the 'Aqua and Red Block Bee'.
(See the button on my sidebar.)
I love the aqua/red color combination
and have yet to make anything with those colors.
When Erin, of Why Not Sew? started up this bee,
I quickly joined.
(You may remember Erin from the "we double rock swap"
she & I did 2 years ago...click here & here).

I have no red and aqua fabrics in my stash.
Really.
Well, perhaps a few pieces.
But nowhere near what I'll need.
I have plenty of time to pick some up here and there.


I stopped at my LQS today to
drop off my 'Just One Star' blocks (2!).
My LQS gathered a total of 44 star blocks
from its customers...woohoo!!!

While there,
I looked around to see what they had
for aqua and red fabrics.

I found these...
Yes, I bought them.
Are you surprised?
Don't be.
You know I have no willpower.
(Won't that red stripe make the best binding?)

I think that's a good start, don't you?
I have no idea what type of blocks I'll want...
stars or log cabins or what,
but that part doesn't need to be
decided for a few months, yet.

I also picked up one of these charm packs...
It's scrumptious.
It's for a future project.
That's all I'm going to say about it.

Red is a color I use a lot, so always have that in my stash. Love the new charm, that will be beautiful to work with.

I really like those colors and anything lilac is always a winner. I have really started liking that aqua color. I can't wait to see what your next projects are going to be. How are you doing?

I just love going on these virtual fabric shopping trips with you! Gosh, I wish I lived near you and you could teach me to quilt! I'm all for the turquoise and red...love the combo together! I can't wait to see what you'll do with them!
Hugs,
Courtney

Looking forward to seeing what you work up with the red & aqua! I think it's a very retro combination... would make a great 50's style apron too! I'm looking forward to the masterpiece that goes along with Lilac Hill!!! *wink*

Ooh...love the red stripe and the red on the right with the little stars!
That lilac charm pack is beautiful!
My fabric on my kitchen chairs and shades (yes, I finally got them made) is aqua with the red roses and I love the combo, them compliment each other so well.
Will be anxious to see what it turns out to be.
Love,
Janer
