For the last couple of years I have had a favorite fabric.  It is Cotton Couture “Cherry” from Michael Miller. It is the PERFECT color of red. Not rusty, not orangy,not brownish, not bluish. It is a true fire-engine/Scandinavian Christmas red. I want to use it for everything, but the worst obsession is bindings. It adds an unexpected happy-pop to almost everything. I also want to make it as the background color in some modern quilts that exist in my head.

Freddy Moran (one of my quilting heroes) wrote in her book “Freddy’s House” that Red is a Neutral. I think she would approve of this red.

Do you have a favorite color of Cotton Couture?
