I sure hope I haven't made a mistake by going off course with my reds and greens by adding this faded red/rosier color fabric for the basket (even though it is in the same fabric line). I certainly don't want or need to buy more fabric for this quilt (I could make 2-3 more quilts with what fabric I have left), but I haven't wanted to repeat basket fabrics and I don't think I have any interesting ones left, thus the introduction of the rosier fabrics.
I have incorporated the rosier fabrics in a couple other blocks but only as flower buds. Here's a close up of this block.
Right now it is bothering me. I could easily remove it without it hurting the other pieces of applique.
Most of my baskets are red, I think I have one that is taupe and now this one. I plan on making another one taupe and I have a rosey floral that I could use, but what do you think? Am I compromising my red and green quilt ....that I wanted so bad?
Three more blocks to go to catch up.....21, 22, and 23. I think I will work on an easy one just to get one completed quickly. Gotta get busy.
