Here is today's new piece. First off, I just want to say how amazed I am by how easy it is to manipulate some neutrals. These three fabrics were made at the same time and with the same colors as the neutrals that I used in yesterday's piece. However these are being pushed by the red accent and in yesterday's piece the neutrals were being pushed around by the yellow green. I'm somewhat shocked by how different they look.
This piece intrigues me a lot and for how simple it is, it's doing a whole bunch of stuff. I knew that if I quilted the three fabric rectangles very lightly that they would stand out, but I expected that they would get a lot of competition from the red square, red strip and red stitching. Surprisingly though, they are actually sitting in the mid ground between the red fabric which is on top and the red stitching which looks like it is receding.
Like yesterday's piece, I really like this one, for both it's simple composition and coloration. I do wish that I had placed the red strip a bit higher and that I had made the red square a rectangle. I am so enjoying this daily discovery!
