Before Seeing Red, I saw BLACK.
Oh my, how depressing!! It needs a “color pop.” I couldn’t even imagine spending several hours making blocks of just black. Or even just black and white. The Camera Knows!!
Moved on to RED.
Much better. Like that butter commercial with that lady from Sex In The City and the French guy, Jacques. “We Like!!”
I have to admit I cheated. To spice up things, I cut a strip of 5″ from several red fabrics in my stash.
So far, these are the red blocks I made today. 25 of them.
Not loving the heart fabric so much. Valentine’s Day is miles away. But I had it. So I used it.
My Favorite Red Block.
While playing with color placement, I experimented with adding a black scrap. And then made this one. AND LOVED IT!!
Hey, that is all it needed. Something to settle your eyes on. So now, I am fast and furiously lining up strips of black, white and red. More tomorrow on them.
I think I will go ahead and make up one in shades of just black. And one in black and white. Just to see if my camera really does KNOW BEST!!
