* red-black-white-gray-brown

I seem to have come late to the red-black-white (plus some gray-brown) party. Remember backtack III, when that color scheme was everywhere? It didn’t do a thing for me at the time, but suddenly I love every print I see in this range. I have aspirations of a quilt, or at least some patchwork placemats or something. Here’s the pile I got at Joann’s today:


If anybody has some fabric along these lines that you’d be willing to part with, I’d love to do a swap.

    Wow, those are great, I can’t believe they are all from JoAnn’s, they look more like Purl Patchwork.
