The Allure of Red and Aqua
Now, I'm not really an aqua person. I never thought I was, anyway. Too close to teal, which is about the only color I don't love. (I won't say I don't like it, but I'm not terribly likely to use it much). But it's been growing very trendy in recent years and, as trends have a way of doing, aqua has been growing on me subtly without my being aware of it. I decided to lay out a possible grouping of fabrics from my newly reorganized stash, figuring I probably wouldn't find much aqua. Ironically, I had a harder time finding true red, because of my red Chinese Lanterns quilt from a few years back.
You can see some more inspiring examples of the red and aqua color combo here. I really do like the idea.
