Capturing the red

I thought I'd try showing the cool red I used in my Sourdough quilt top. I had a fat quarter of it at first, but when I started using it in some of the blocks, I decided I had better get more, it looked so good.

It's a Basic Grey from Moda, and it complements the Kaffe and batik fabrics so well, but is difficult to capture the subtleties. There is a hint of purple-blue, greeny-grey, tan and black.

And just for fun, a favorite green/multi batik I found. It also makes the Kaffes look great.
