  2. 2. 1. Go Patriotic “ Red spices up the Three Cheers quilt by complimenting the soothing tones of navy, blue, and teal. The sprinkles of red in this quilt sparkle like a firecracker on the Fourth of July. The best part is Pam Soliday and Janet Nesbitt of the Buggy Barn will have wonderful whimsical patterns and a book featuring Three Cheers in stores soon.” —Lisa Loeseel, Henry Glass Fabrics
  3. 3. 2. Relish Simplicity “ Don't forget the simple. With so many amazing fabrics calling out to us, it can be hard to remember that sometimes less is more.”  — Debbie Grifka , Bold Quilt Esch House Quilts
  4. 4. 3. Celebrate Summer “ Find a fabric that you love and then use colors from that main fabric to use in your quilt." — Benita Skinner Strawberry Picnic Quilt Victoriana Quilt Designs
  5. 5. 4. Turn Up the Heat “ It’s fun and funky, haute and hot. Red is a blast! Adding a blast of red hot color you can create some red hot sizzle to any of your projects. Give the cool chic of Black and White, or Navy and White, a dynamic dash with hot red pepper to spice things up. Go it alone or mix it up with other colors, either way it’s hot stuff.” — Harriet Clemens, Design Director Henry Glass Fabrics Masquerade IV by Fresh Designs
  6. 6. 5. Do Christmas in July “ Update the traditional Christmas color palette by infusing aqua and cream with red. Inspired by the retro Christmas villages of the 1970’s, Christmas Cabin is a timeless design in a fresh color palette. This runner would look great on your table any time of the year.” — Maria Peagler Christmas Cabin pattern & kit 2010 Color-of-the-Month series
